This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the ‘Universal Brotherhood Celebration’ in our Nation’s Capital. In 1990, our Grand Lodge embarked on a strategy to remake the nature of our Craft and render it once again as reflective as possible of the universality of Freemasonry. I am truly proud to be your Grand Master at a time when our Grand Lodge is more vibrant, more diverse, younger, and more forward looking than ever. We do have much to celebrate on this 25th Anniversary!
This year’s celebration not only marks the 25th Anniversary of the Grand Lodge’s dedication to Masonic Universality, but it marks the return of our Universal Brotherhood Celebration to a fitting position of importance in our Grand Lodge calendar. I look forward to your participation and rely upon your support and the support of your lodge in making this year’s celebration an event to remember.
M. W. Jeffrey D. Russell, Grand Master
