Ill. Bro. Robert S. Whitmore 33º, Sovereign Grand Commander and Ill. Bro. Terry A. McLean 33º, Immediate Past Sovereign Grand Commander announcing that Hamilton will host the next Supreme Council Sessions in September 2020.
Look out Hamilton, here we come in 2020.
Ill. Bro. Steven E. Warren 33º, Chairman of Organizing Committee for Supreme Council Sessions in 2020 in Hamilton ON.
Hamilton Ontario will be hosting the Supreme Council of Canada Sessions September 16 to 19, 2020. These sessions are the first of the biennial format.
Home base for the Supreme Council Sessions in 2020 will be the newly renovated Sheraton Hamilton Hotel. It is located in the heart of downtown Hamilton and has direct connection to the Hamilton Convention Centre and a short walk or bus ride to the Scottish Rite Cathedral.
The Hamilton Convention Centre will be the location for the "Get Acquainted Night" on Wednesday evening and the two banquets on Thursday and Friday evenings.
While the Sheraton Hotel will provide meeting rooms for the Executive Sessions and Committee meetings, the Scottish Rite Cathedral will be the site for the General Sessions, the 33º portrayal and the Saturday Valley Event.
The Ladies Programme will include the ever popular Hospitality Suite on Thursday and Friday. The main event is a breakfast buffet followed by a Murder Mystery which has a hilarious and entertaining cast of characters.
The Saturday Valley Event will start with an "all you can eat" buffet, tours of the Scottish Rite building expaining some of the history of the 1895 Tuckett Mansion and the Building of the Cathedral in 1923. This will be followed by a presentation of a masonic play "Rose Upon the Altar" in our beautiful Cathedral. Our newly opened Hamilton Learning Centre for Children with Dyslexia (located next door to the Scottish Rite) will be the beneficiary of all proceeds of this event.
Stay tuned as this site will continue to promote information on these Sessions as they are developed and determined.
