Masonic Records held by the KGB revealed

A new revealing look at the history of Freemasonry will be presented at an International Conference by the Canonbury Masonic Research Center in London England on October 30-31, 2010.

The keynote speaker, Dr. Patricia Kennedy Grimstead, of Harvard University, will present a lecture entitled "War on Freemasons: the fate of the Nazi and Soviet seized books and archives." The lecture will provide an overview of the millions of Masonic documents orginally stolen from the Masonic lodges by the Nazis during World War Two. Then during the Sack of Berlin, the documents were transported by the forerunner of the Soviet KGB and placed into the archives in Moscow.

For futher information and a downloadable program of this one-of-a-kind conference and details on how to register, go to the CMRCS website at

This is the start of the news that I have been waiting to hear for some time. We don't really know how many Freemasons were sent to the Nazi Concentration Camps or who they were. Perhaps this will be the start of the flow of such information many of us have been waiting for.

I wish I could attend this conference.

Im very proud to be a member of the Scottish Rite. Please watch my blog for future articles.
You will have an opportunity to look at what Scottish Rite is intended to be. For we are just a hand full of Valleys that perform all twenty nine degrees..... but we do it TWICE a year.

Warm greetings were exchanged, the tinkling of ice in glasses was heard.

We perused the various enticing auction items, entered our names with a wish for a "win".

As we entered the dinner room, we marveled at the elegant transformation.

From the berry-laced fresh green salad to the delectable main course of beef and fowl and the irresistible sweets on the dessert tray, dinner was enjoyed and shared by all, intermingled with pleasant conversation.

A mellow and talented jazz band had us tapping our feet and recalling "ol Blue eyes".
Capping an end to the sixth annual Minnesota Masonic Charties Annual Gala.

Where were you? I'm sorry I missed you. We had a great time without you. The place was beautiful, and all those flowers, the food, the wine, the music was out of this world. Of course the money raised all went to a great cause Minnesota Masonic Charities. I hope to see you next year.
