The 33 degree is an honorary degree that is conferred by the Supreme Council for outstanding work in the community or Rite.

A message from Personal Representative Jon Lenander:

Greetings to my Scottish Rite Brethren;

We are back into our Fraternal regimen for this fall. Our class of candidates consists of 9 from the Olympia Valley plus several from other Valleys as courtesy work. It is great to see that many new Scottish Rite Masons! Lets all turn out to our reunion meetings to welcome our new Brothers! Better yet volunteer to take a part in the degree work. We need to demonstrate to our candidates that we are happy and proud that they have chosen to join with us.
14th Degree: Wednesday, November 12 @ 7:30 pm
18th through 32nd Degrees: Saturday, November 15 9 am

Our KidSpeak program is on the move. We are presently working on an agreement with Group Health to provide therapy on a contract basis. We will keep you posted on our progress.
Wednesday November 12 at 5 pm is our Executive Board meeting. We will be nominating officers for the coming year. Show up and make your views known, all are encouraged to attend.
Ill. Br. Skip is planning a Guthrie trip for the spring reunion. This is a truly memorable experience and worth the time and expense involved. I expect to attend again this year and my son Jon will attend as a candidate (if the birth of Jon & Suzy’s first child does not conflict). The reunion is the first weekend in April. The Oklahoma Scottish Rite Masons are Magnificent hosts, so make every effort to join us.
Best wishes to all for a joyous Holiday season!
