April is Grand Lodge of Georgia month at the George Washington Masonic Memorial

While looking around the George Washington Masonic Memorial website researching the previous story about the filming of the National Treasure sequel there this week, I discovered that April is Grand Lodge of Georgia month.

From the website:
April 2007 is the Grand Lodge of Georgia Month at the Memorial. As part of the Grand Lodge Month Program the Grand Lodge of Georgia will open an Emergent Session of the Grand Lodge of Georgia in the Memorial at 7:00 p.m. Saturday, April 7, 2007. Also, at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, April 7, 2007 the Scottish Rite of Georgia will present the play "The Traitor" in the North Lodge Room.

The Traitor: A Masonic play in three acts depicts an appeal by Benedict Arnold to return to the United States. The appeal is sent to George Washington.

The first act sees Arnold late at night in his London bedroom. The second act takes place in a Richmond, Virginia lodge room where Washington, Lafayette and many colonial generals are reminiscing about the war so recently concluded. The third act returns to Arnold's bedroom later the same night.

The play is open to the public and will conclude just prior to 9:00PM.

Freemasonry is the oldest, largest, and most widely known fraternal organization in the world. It is comprised of men who seek to become better through their association with one another and their families. The institution of Masonry is founded upon the Fatherhood of God, and the Brotherhood of Man. It teaches Morality, Brotherly love and Charity. Our teaching includes brotherhood, morality, justice, tolerance, citizenship, education and freedom of ideas, of religious choice, and of expression.
