 Brethren: Our Installation of Officers on January 13th went superbly. SGIG Illustrious Frank Loui 33°, Illustrious John Heisner 33° and Illustrious Ray Godeke 33° all participated in the event. Attendance at the next Installation is highly recommended to all of the Brothers who didn’t make it this year. It is a great ceremony and you can bring your spouses. We appreciate all of the Brothers who have paid their 2020 dues. The Tiler will be checking for 2020 dues cards at the February Stated Meeting. There are still a number of Brothers who need to pay their dues. If you have any questions about your membership status, please call us or email us at the office. 

All is well at the Valley office. Our new location is working out great. Our regular office staff consists of myself and Illustrious Lloyd Clayton 33°. Also, Brother Russ Albright 32° comes in to help. 2020 can be the best year ever for our Valley. To make that happen, all members should participate in a Valley activity. You can be:

  • An officer
  • A cast member in a degree
  • A Knight of St. Andrew
  • An ambassador to your Blue Lodge for OCSR
  • A member of the Super Breakfast crew 
  • Or enroll in the Master Craftsman class. 

Your enjoyment and appreciation of your Scottish Rite membership is directly related to your level of participation.
