THE DECEMBER STATED MEETING will take place on Thursday, December 4th.  Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm at a cost of $7 with our meeting to follow at 7:30 pm. 

CONGRATULATIONS to the new Worshipful Masters being installed this month.  The Scottish Rite will attempt to present leather planning guides to the Sr. Wardens and a very nice 2022 Master Tac to the Worshipful Masters.  Be sure to attend your Lodge’s Installation to show your support for your new Worshipful Master and his core of officers as well as to stand up and be counted as a Scottish Rite Mason during the presentation. 

CONGRATULATIONS TO our 2 newest Meritorious Service Awardees Michael J. Waldern and Charles J. Vadino on receiving their Cap and Jewel at our annual Meritorious Service Award Reception last month as well as our newest 33o Scottish Rite Masons: Zel E. Bush, Phillip R. Elliott, III, Brian M. Kennedy, and Brian S. Williams.

SAVE THE DATE:  VALLEY OF YOUNGSTOWN NIGHT AT THE PHANTOMS HOCKEY GAME.  This will be on January 8, 2022.  More details to follow.

DUES STATEMENTS FOR 2022 have been mailed.  Remember that paper dues cards are no longer included with your dues statement.  All members were mailed a new plastic dues card with their dues notice this year.  Dues are due by December 31, 2021.  Your prompt payment is appreciated. 

2022 SPRING REUNION:  It’s not too soon to start working on petitions for our Spring Reunion.  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. James A. Streeky, 33o Friday, April 1, 2022 and Saturday, April 2, 2022.  There will more on this in January’s newsletter.

BRETHREN:  Please note that the Valley has instituted a calling program.  Each month our officers will be calling our members who have a birthday that month just to check up on you, make sure you are receiving mail from the Valley and to see how you are.  So don’t be surprised when that call comes, we just want to know how you are doing.
