Greetings Companions and Sir Knights:
This Grand Convention will have all of the normal York Rite meetings, degrees and activities. It is also designed to welcome and entertain our wives and non York Rite visitors.

There will be breakfasts, lunches and dinners for their taste buds to enjoy. There will be a full schedule if things for them to do. There will be free activities like a “chick flick night” just for the ladies with the usual movie treats and I promise lots of laughs…this is going to be great…there will be some crafts to entertain….there will be pool time…there will be listings of restaurants….museums to visit….a wonderful zoo…world class amusement parks…several large and beautiful malls for the those who love to shop and lots more. Soooo please let us know what you and your families are interested in. Tampa is a friendly easy to navigate city that has much to offer. All you need do is ask……..And what is so wonderful about the Sheraton Suites Tampa Airport at 4400 West Cypress Street is that you can just sit back read a book, talk with friends and relax in the most beautiful atrium complete with trees, shrubs and a babbling brook
If you have a request or any interests in any special events send it to me or to Merri-Anne or to Katie or Donna.
