Bro. George Washington's 275th birthday to be celebrated at Masonic Memorial

Yeah, I know, W. Bro. and President George Washington's many virtues didn't extend to Native Americans, but he's worth a Masonic nod as President's Day approaches.

On Sunday, February 25, the George Washington Masonic Memorial will commemorate the 275th birthday of George Washington with the presentation of the first George Washington Memorial Award, The Connection has announced.

The award was created to honor individuals who have promoted the virtues, character and vision of George Washington. The recipient of this first-ever award is New York author Richard Brookhiser, for his book, Founding Father: Rediscovering George Washington. Prior to the presentation ceremony, Brookhiser will give a talk on Bro. Washington. The traditional wreath-laying ceremony will also be held. The ceremonies will take place at the base of the 17-foot bronze statue of George Washington in the main entrance hall.
