Yearly Midsommer meet­ings

The goal of the festival is to empower and increase brot­her­hood, friendship and toget­her­ness amongst the Bret­hren. Further more we will honor the 300 years anni­versary of the founding of United Grand Lodge of England – UGLE.

Quite a few of Bret­hren from abroad are expected, such as from England, Scot­land and Scandi­navia.

For some years the Bret­hren have been discussing the possi­bli­lity of hosting a Grand Mids­ummer Festival, where Bret­hren from all over Iceland and abroad would meet, along with the sisters and even families. The Mids­ummer Festival in Rún has taken place June 24th every year since 1932 and has always been popular.

Programme

The festival will start on the evening of Friday June 23rd by reception in the Flight Museum in Akur­eyri. Before midnight there will be an opti­onal sailing tour in Fjord of the Islands (Eyja­fjörður) and hopefully towards the midnight sun.

On Saturday June 24th we are planning a variety of acti­vities for the guests and sisters in the Akur­eyri area, where the Bret­hern of Rún will share their hobbies and interests, such as motorcycling, horseback riding, golfing, gardening and more. After registering, the guests will receive an e-mail where they will be able to choose in which acti­vity they would prefer to participate.

The Bret­hren in Akur­eyri are willing to host the guests that are coming from abroad in their homes for two nights free of charge. If the guests will need further accomm­odation they will have to arrange it at their own expenses. We will assist in finding suitable accomm­odation if requ­ested and have already reserved some rooms at guest­houses, summ­er­houses and small hotels.

The mids­ummer meeting starts at 17:00 (5 pm) at the Freema­sons hall. After the meeting there will be a grand dinner with the sisters.

Even though we hope that we will have many guests, we must limit the number if the interest is more than the house can contain. We therefore encourage those who are interested to register as soon as possible. Registration will start January 15th 2017 on this webpage of The Icelandic Order of Freema­sons.

Dear Bret­hren, you are most welcome to St. John Lodge Rún no. 2 in Iceland.
