LSJ Informal Gathering

Brethren all,

The 3rd Thursday of September is upon us and I want to invite all LSJ brethren and friends to the September Informal Gathering at the Londoner from 6:30 p.m. until whenever.

No RSVP required – just show up.

Last time we had a number LSJ brethren, brethren from other lodges as well as non-masons others interested in learning more about Freemasonry. It was a really good time.

As before, we have no budget so everyone will pay for their own food and drinks.

Hope to see you all there!
