The Academy of Masonic Knowledge will hold its next meeting on Oct. 11 in the Freemasons Cultural Center at the Masonic Village
at Elizabethtown. The meeting will begin with registration starting at 8:30 a.m. Lunch will be served to all attendees at no cost.
At the request of the Right Worshipful Grand Master, this meeting will be directed to educating newly raised Master Masons along
with all members of the Academy. It will be styled similarly to the one that was conducted several years ago following the one-day
classes. Although this style of meeting falls outside of the mission of the Academy, it proved so successful and received such glowing
responses, the Grand Master feels that it would be a benefit to present it again.
The Academy of Masonic Knowledge is now in its ninth year of operation and during this time, many outstanding Masonic scholars
from around the world have given Pennsylvania Freemasons the opportunity to expand their knowledge of Masonic subjects. It has
exposed us to a new world of the Craft and stimulated our brothers to go beyond what they might have perceived as their limits while
at the same time giving the leaders of Pennsylvania an opportunity to find a storehouse of Masonic potential in participants of the
Academy. Its success may be judged by the number of Grand Lodges that have adopted similar programs in their jurisdictions.
All Pennsylvania Freemasons are invited and encouraged to attend. Jacket and tie are expected. Advance registration must be
made by contacting Bro. Jim Standish by email or by mail at 1 Pierce Court, Glenn Mills, PA 19342.
