This installation will be at approximately 10:00AM following Masters & Wardens for the 17th District at Mokanna Lodge No 329, 4925 Clarcona-Ocoee Road, Orlando FL. The best way to so this is to come for breakfast at 8:00AM and then attend the M & W meeting. (Usually only 1 hour long) All Masons are invited to attend this meeting and to see what is going on in the district and to see what some of the other Lodges in the District are doing as well.

That is all

I hope to see you there in uniform or on the sidelines supporting the new Worshipful Masters and our Sir Knights.
