The 278th Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free Masons of South Carolina will be held April 23rd and 24th, 2015, at the Embassy Suites Hotel Airport Convention Center located at 5055 International Blvd., North Charleston, SC 29418.
The Religious Service will commence at 9:00 AM conducted by The Reverend Jerry L. Phillips, Grand Chaplain.
The Grand Lodge will be officially opened at 10:00 AM by the Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother David J. DeChant, Sr. assisted by the other Grand Lodge Officers and Brethren.
The Annual Banquet will be held Thursday night, April 23, 2015, at 7:00 pm at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center.
The Embassy Suites Hotel will be the headquarters hotel. Those desiring rooms there should get their reservations in early as rooms will be assigned on a first come – first serve basis. Each person, including Grand Lodge Officers, will be responsible for making his own reservation. Rates at the hotel are $154.00 per night plus tax. Identify yourself as attending the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free Masons to get this special rate.
It is not likely that everyone will be able to stay at the hotel as there are a limited number of rooms. It is desirable, if at all possible, that all Grand Lodge Officers, including Past Grand Masters, District Deputy Grand Masters and Committee members, stay at the headquarters hotel. The telephone number of the hotel is 843-747-1882.
