Corinthian Lodge #67 of Farmington will be hosting a Friendship Night at 7:30 pm with a potluck at 6:30 pm. Our featured speaker is Brother Olaf Kuhlke, an assistant professor of Geography at the University of Minnesota, Duluth. He will be presenting, "Why Geometry Matters: Masonic Rituals, Lodges and Cities and the Importance of Order". Brother Olaf is also a very active Freemason and maintains a website about his experiences and thoughts of the Craft. He will also be selling copies of his book, GEOGRAPHIES OF FREEMASONRY: Ritual, Lodge, and City in Spatial Context, at a special publisher's discount. Supplies will be limited so be sure to arrive as early as possible.
I saw Bro. Kuhlke at the 2008 Minnesota Grand Lodge Communication in Duluth and found the subject of Geography and Freemasonry to be fascinating. I am very excited to see such an interesting and knowledgeable speaker and I would like to encourage all brothers in Minnesota to attend this great event.
For those who don't know what a Friendship Night is, it is a way for our Lodge to open up to perspective candidates and give them a chance to meet Brothers and allow them to make an informed decision on joining. If you know any men who live in the Southern Suburbs of Minneapolis-St.Paul who are interested in Freemasonry or you yourself are interested in joining and you live in the area, please contact me and I will give you directions to the Farmington Masonic Temple. Friendship Night will also be a potluck so be sure to bring a dish for all of us to share. I hope to see you there.
