FALL REUNION

We unfortunately had to cancel this year’s Fall Reunion because we did not have enough candidates to put one on.  We hope that all Scottish Rite members will start working now to find candidates for our Spring 2019 Reunion to make it a great one.


ROOF UPDATE

We hope to have a new roof started on our building soon.  A big thanks to all the Brothers who have donated to the roof replacement fund.  The generosity of our Brothers never disappoints when they know of a true need.  We will have to use our reserve funds along with the donations from our members to replace the roof but it must be done.  We have received donations in amounts from $10 to $5,000.  Every dollar helps and if you have not made your donation please try to do so soon. 


DUES NOTICES FOR 2019

Notices for 2019 Scottish Rite dues have been sent out.  These are printed and sent for us by the Supreme Council in Washington, D.C.

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.


EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES

The Scottish Rite is sometimes referred to as the college of Masonry.  Did you know that our KCCH Court coordinates a Masonic Education talk at each of our Stated Meetings? The Scottish Rite offers a wonderful set of Masonic courses called Master Craftsman available through the Supreme Council store at www.Scottishrite.org.  


UPDATE YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION

We remind you that it is important to update your phone numbers, address and email address with the Secretary.  You can update your information by calling the Secretary at 850-763-7144 or emailing the Secretary at pcscottishrite@comcast.net pcscottishrite@comcast.net.


E-mail Addresses

It is more important than ever that we have an e-mail address for our brothers. Having your email address allows us to send timely information out to you when something changes on our calendar or a new event is scheduled.  We are also going to try and email the regular newsletter out by email to those we have e-mail addresses. This will save the Valley money on printing and postage.
