Welcome Sir Knights, Companions, Brethren and Guests to the seventh annual Western States Easter Observance,  by the Grand Encampment of Knights Templar and the Grand Commandery of Utah. This marks the second year that Utah has the privilege and honor of hosting this memorable event. The Easter Observance will be held in the auditorium of the historic Salt Lake City Masonic Temple, located just a couple of minutes away by shuttle or automobile.

Accommodations will be at the Hotel RL by Red Lion, which offers 100% completely renovated rooms and common areas, and in close proximity to many local attractions, restaurants and shopping areas. Knights Templar from the Western States are encouraged to attend this Grand Encampment event. It is a great fraternal opportunity in Chivalric Masonry that is focused on our Savior rather than the business of the Craft.

We have scheduled events for Friday, March 30th, Saturday, March 31st, and Sunday, April 1st. The Hotel RL will honor the reduced room rate of $103/night, plus taxes, offered to us for any days between March 29th and April 2nd so long as reservations are placed on or before the hotel cutoff date of March 9th. On Saturday, there will be a no-host cocktail reception at 6:00pm followed by the banquet at the hotel, starting at 7:00pm. Sunday, we will start the Easter Observance at 8:00am in the auditorium of the Salt Lake Masonic Temple. This will be followed by an Easter Morning Brunch at the Hotel RL from 10am until 1pm.
