Grand Master MW Luis A Baez-Delgado selected “The George Washington Masonic National Memorial Association” “Memorial Dedicatory Tree & Bench program” as the charity project for the ACGL 2022-2023. The goal of this project is to contribute to both the Tree & Bench in the name of the American Canadian Grand Lodge. As the Grand Master said let us push this charity to complete the sums needed for a Tree & Bench as soon as possible. That we can have them installed prior to the conference. 
This great memorial to the Mason George Washington, was built with donations of the Grand Lodges within the United States of America and many other Masonic related organizations. The start of construction was 5 June 1922. 
To commemorate the start of construction and celebrate the centennial of the laying of the cornerstone for this building, “The Conference Grand Masters of North America” will host their annual conference. There is a CORNERSTONE CEREMONY reenactment AND PARADE planned. 

The American Canadian Grand Lodge as a member of this conference will be represented by our Grand Master and accompanied by members of his elected line. It would please the GM if his Charity program was a success and the dedicatory Granite Bench was in place when the Grand Master attends the conference and dedication ceremony in February 2023. 
Thanks for your help.
