DUES NOTICES FOR 2018
Notices for 2018 Scottish Rite dues will be sent out soon. These are printed and sent for us by the Supreme Council in Washington, D.C. As you should recall from our last newsletter we were voting to raise our dues by $10 due to Supreme Council raising our per capita. This increase was passed at our May meeting and dues for 2018 will be $95.00.We are asking Perpetual Members, 50-year members and Emeritus Members who do not pay dues to consider making at least a $25 donation to the Valley when you receive your notice. This will help cover the per capita that we have to pay to the Supreme Council for each Valley member whether they pay dues or not. There is a block on the dues notice for this or other donations shown as Donations to Valley.
Every member should make sure that your dues are current and when you pay your dues please consider making an additional donation to the Almoner's Fund and the Scottish Rite Foundation.
If paying dues creates a problem for you please contact the secretary for possible options.
Brothers, this is my first Communication as Personal Representative to our Valley.
I would like to congratulate those Brothers honored on November 11, 2017. They are William Joe Paul, coroneted 33°, Dennis Barbarisi, Marck Dragon and Allen Swindell who were invested with the KCCH. It was a great weekend and Ill. Fischer and I were very proud of our Valley.
There are several ideas which we will discuss in the coming meetings for the Valley. Please feel free to put forth any ideas you may have for our Valley at any time.
