Out with the old, In with the new

As the odometer flips a digit, 2009 promises to be a pivotal year for many Americans. Scottish Rite, both nationally and locally is not immune to these challenges.

For 2009, I’m certain that newly elected VM Caspar LeBlanc will have an interesting program of events slated. I also know that Caspar and his team will need all of our help to make the year a positive and memorable one. Please join me in offering our help and encouragement, and in sincere congratulations on his election as Venerable Master.

We also offer congrats and thanks to outgoing VM Rick Bonnell for a successful term during 2008.
