A lot of effort to plan, prepare and put on the Reunion was all worth it. When the Reunion concluded Saturday afternoon, the class gave spontaneous applause. That shows that your effort is appreciated and well worth every minute you provided.
Often we hear the refrain that we need new members and that we need to perform our degrees. It is easy to forget that for each new member of the Valley, these degrees and the effort we put into them is entirely new. They are experiencing the Scottish Rite and meeting the members of our Valley for the first time. They are seeing our passion for our Valley through the work we perform. Their future level of involvement in our Valley depends so much on the impression they have of us that they gain through the work we do at our Reunion.
We did our job. We performed our degrees with the enthusiasm and passion our candidates needed to see from us. We made Scottish Rite come alive. Let’s build on this success. Find new candidates. If we needed to have a Spring Reunion as well, we would gladly welcome the work it would require.
Thank you for your contributions in finding candidates, planning, cooking, stage managing and performing the work. Thank you in advance for doing it all again soon.
