With Christmas right around the corner you still have time to visit our online web store and pick out something for a Christmas gift. Our staff at your Grand Lodge office will do our best to make sure it arrives in time to slip under the ole’ Christmas tree. We have many great books on sale including The Better Angels Of Our Nature: Freemasonry in the American Civil War, written by your Grand Junior Warden, Michael A. Halleran, and I’m sure that he would love to personalize the book for you the next time you see him. As you know, Bro. Halleran is an accomplished Masonic writer with many stories published in the Scottish Rite Journal. His Bro. Brother articles were great reads and always a favorite of mine even before I met him.
If you took the opportunity to attend the Leadership Academy at the State Capitol building in October, you had the pleasure of listening to several great Masonic speakers, among them Bro. Cliff Porter from Colorado who gave a fantastic presentation. Bro. Cliff’s presentation was based on his book The Secret Psychology Of Freemasonry which is a featured item in our web store. While negotiating the best deal possible, Brother Cliff offered to personally sign each copy we purchased, so you can expect a signed copy when it arrives.
All other books and items are listed in the new and improved web store, which is much easier to navigate. For ease of purchase you can now pay online with PayPal payment service, you don’t need a PayPal account to make a purchase, either. You can pay with your credit card and we usually get the order out the same day the transaction hits our desktops. So remember, if you’re looking for gifts for the Mason who has everything – be sure to stop by the Grand Lodge store.
