Fall Reunion – Getting Closer!

What seemed a long way off at our last meeting is now just around the corner.  The Fall Reunion will be taking place on November 2 & 3, 2012.  Ill. Russell A. Baker, Deputy for Pennsylvania, will be joining us for this event.  We always strive to do our best and support the degree casts, but with such an honored guest with us this year we have extra incentive to really put on a great reunion.

The fee for this class is $100.  Of course, a class needs men to fill it and that is where you come in.  If you do not visit your Lodge and speak on behalf of Scottish Rite Freemasonry and encourage brethren to join, who else will?  It is sometimes easy to forget that many new Masons know nothing about Scottish Rite Freemasonry.  They don’t ask to join because they don’t know anything about it.  A few words about its purpose and why you are a member is all it takes to get their wheels turning.  So, get to Lodge and rise to say a few good words about Scottish Rite Freemasonry.  Have a few petitions handy (call the Secretary if you need more) and you might find that you get some interest from newer Masons.


Golf Tournement

Everett Lodge will be hosting a Golf Scramble for foursomes at the Down & Country Club (Route 30) on Saturday September 29, 2012.  Teams, singles and/or doubles are welcome.  The cost is $75 per person and there will be cash prizes.
