Ohio Masons are invited to attend the 5th annual Masonic Restoration Foundation Symposium, which will be held at the Cincinnati Masonic Center on August 15 – 17, 2014. This national symposium will feature speakers and workshops focused on enabling Masons and Lodges to improve their Masonic experience. (This will be a Brothers only event; there will not be a ladies program.)
