Dan Brown Sequel

Jeffery Trachtenberg wrote a very interesting article about what ate Dan Brown may have in mind for his book. I hope we find out more so that officers of lodges, such as myself, have time to prepare for the onslaught of new petitions into the fraternity.

I have read various news articles about the release of Dan Brown's newest book and a supposed specific date that he has in mind. I am wondering, what date could he possibly have been thinking of? I have racked my brains of all the important dates in Masonry or American history but I don't see the connection. I will list various dates that I know and perhaps someone can leave a comment helping solve this mystery.

June 24th -> Feast of St. John the Baptist
December 27th -> Feast of St. John the Evangelist
July 4th -> American Independence Day
June 24, 1717 -> Formation of the United Grand Lodge of England.
March 6, 1775 -> Prince Hall initiated
The date that De Molay died was October 13th, 1307.

Third Degree

I want to thank everyone who participated in the Third Degree that Corinthian Lodge #67 put on last Tuesday. I believe that it was one of the best third degrees that I have seen in a long time. This event is very auspicious for the coming year and I am very excited to see it unfold.
