Hello from Guthrie Oklahoma...


Eight Brethren from our valley made the annual treck to Guthrie. Illustrious Brothers Jon Lenander, Ray Drummond, Skip Sanford ;KCCH Ben Schatz, and 32 Chris Scarr, Don Bulloch, Jon Anderson and myself attended the Scottish Rite reunion in Guthrie Oklahoma over this last weekend. We were treated to a wonderful presentation of the 29 Scottish Rite degrees performed in full costume on stage. The Guthrie degree teams, and there are many, have out done themselves again as did the many Brethren from the Guthrie Valley who made our every moment a pleasurable one.

If you have never been, it is an experience that you will never forget, if you do not want to take my word for it then check with the many Brethren who have made multiple trips only to still leave in awe at the powerful message the degrees impress upon you. This has been my second trip and rest assured I will make yet another. It serves as a powerful reminder of those many obligations we took at the alter of Freemasonry.

One final treat was the procession by the Knights of St. Andrews click the link to enjoy.
