THE MARCH STATED MEETING will be held on March 5th at 7:30 pm. Dinner at 6:30 pm at a cost of $7.00. This will be the last Stated Meeting to bring petitions.
MARCH DEGREES ON THE ROAD, we will confer the 4o and 31oDVD at Argus Lodge in Canfield on March 14th with breakfast at 8:00 am. On March 28th we will confer the 4o and 12oDVD at Jerusalem Lodge in Hartford also at 8:00 am. This will be the last year we confer the 4o as we have for many years and a new 4o has been published and due to its composition, it will only be able to be conferred at a reunion starting next year.
2020 SPRING REUNION: It’s time to get those petitions in. Again, this year a benefactor has made funds available so that any current or retired Police, Fire, or EMTs and any Active Military or Veteran can join the Valley for $50.00. This reunion is named for Ill. George Roman III. Friday, April 24th the 4o, 14o, and 6o DVD will be conferred, and Saturday, April 25th the 17o DVD, 18o and 32o will be conferred. Friday starts at 7:00 pm and Saturday at 8:00 am. Coffee and donuts on Saturday morning. All degrees will be held at the Warren Temple. Fees for degrees this year are $100.00.
SUPREME COUNCIL SCHOLARSHIP GRANTS are now available in the Scottish Rite office. The rules have been changed at Supreme Council so that the Supreme Council Abbott Scholarships are now available to any child or grandchild of a Scottish Rite member. We will still give at least one Hubert E. White Valley scholarship as well. The number of scholarships from Supreme Council are directly related to the amount given by our members to the Blue Envelope Appeal. In the last 5 years we have received approximately $2,000 to $2,500 dollars each year which we use to give scholarships to children of our members. Last year we only received $2,250. The more we give, the more we get back. We would also like to increase the number of Hubert E. White Scholarships from 1 to 2 but we need to build that fund up from it’s current $14,000 to closer to $20,000 to ensure its continued existence. Please consider giving to this fund as well.
APRIL’S STATED MEETING will be our annual Election of Officers. Come out and support your officers that have worked hard all year for your Scottish Rite.
