Wednesday night is Scottish Rite!

By Kris Graap

According to my digital sundial, this Wednesday is Scottish Rite, hosted by the Council of Kadosh. Dinner will begin at 6:30 with the meeting to follow at 7:30.

Congrats to our newly-inducted Brothers, courtesy of the Valley of Guthrie, OK. Our Brother Charlie Parrez and Jon Lenander received all 29 degrees of spectacular work. At least seventeen of us from Western Washington witnessed these degrees in what has become an annual event. Congrats also to Brother Ed Woods on receiving an honorary membership in the Royal Order of the Duck. I have no special knowledge of the ritual (and would not comment even if I knew citing due discretion!), although you are certainly free to inquire of Br. Ed. :-)

See you Wednesday!
