AASR Valley of Youngstown
THE FEBRUARY STATED MEETING: Depending on where we are with COVID this could well be another web-ex meeting online. Please check the website for the Facebook page to see how this meeting will go. If you would like to be on the web-ex meeting invitation and you did not get one for the January meeting please email your address to the valley.
FEBRUARY 15TH WAS SCHEDULED to be the 20o, however with the uncertainty of anything at this point this even has been canceled.
2020 SPRING REUNION: At this point in time the 2020 Spring Reunion is not definite. It is tentatively scheduled for Friday, April 23rd and Saturday, April 24th. See future articles in the Mahoning Mason, the Website or our Facebook page to see if this will actually occur.
SUPREME COUNCIL SCHOLARSHIP GRANTS are now available in the Scottish Rite office. 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. 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.
DUES NOTICES: I’m sure most of you are aware of the change in how dues notices have been sent out. You will probably not receive another dues notice for 2021 at this point. If you have not paid your dues yet, please do so.
