On August 25 – 27, I had the honor and pleasure of representing Nebraska Masonry at the AASR Biennial Session in Washington, D. C. This session pulls together all the SGIG, Grand Masters and Members from the Southern Jurisdiction to transact the business of the AASR and also to enjoy great fellowship and exchange best practices. We were treated royally by the AASR and got to see some of the great sites of D. C. as well. The first night we had a dinner just for GM’s and other Grand Representatives at the St. Regis Hotel. It was a magnificent event (see pictures below). The session on Monday was very interesting and included the retirement of Adm. Gene Sizemore, who is moving from paid full time to a volunteer position after many years with the AASR. The Gala Banquet on Tuesday night was well attended and I got to know the SGIG and Past Grand Master of Australia quite well. All in all, a great trip and I picked up some good ideas for Nebraska as well.
