More than 400 delegates are in Nanaimo for a Masonic leadership conference this week.
The Grand Lodge of B.C. and Yukon has chosen to hold its 141st annual communication Thursday to Saturday (June 21-23) at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.
Conference centre officials estimate the event will generate more than $500,000 in economic benefits for the city.
The event includes ceremonies, banquets, meetings and a tour to Coombs for the ladies.
