Dear Brethren and Friends:

Good Morning and Good Monday everyone! So we got more of the white stuff last night, but thankfully it wasn't as bad as we've had so far. Slippery no doubt, but not as deep and heavy.

Today I will be sending letters of invitation and petitions to over 100 of our local area Brethren in regards to our Spring Class. We have 16 Candidates for the Class right now. We've got work to do!

Dan Scheetz, our Associate Member Coordinator and self described Steve Morrison impersona...tor, has scheduled a bunch of "Scottish Rite Nights" at area Lodges. As they occur they will be posted here on this page. If you are able to go out and support Bro. Dan, please do. The first of these nights will happen this Wednesday evening, 12 February at Newtown Lodge No. 427 at the Masonic Temple in Woodside.

By now you all have seen my posting regarding the t-shirt sale to benefit our Almoners Fund. We sold Valley t-shirts a few years back, and it took us a few years to sell our inventory. Recently newer members who have seen those shirts have asked me about having them made available again, but like I said it took awhile to sell them so that probably wasn't going to happen. This t-shirt sale, is COST-FREE to the Valley. How's that? Easy. The company will not print any shirts unless we reach our initial goal of 50 shirts sold. You buy the shirt. We reach 50 or hopefully more, they'll make the shirt and send it to you. We in turn will receive a check for our Almoners Fund. IF we do not reach our goal, you won't receive a shirt or be billed for it and our Almoner Fund will receive NADA. So far we've sold 15 shirts, so we have more to go. I'm also proud to announce that our Deputy, the Ill. Russell W. Baker,33 purchased one! How cool is that?

Our Family Life Chairman, Ill. Jim Rae, 33 MSA has again scheduled our annual Valley family picnic at the Camden Riversharks. This has been a very popular event for the Valley and we always sell it out. Imagine a crowd of Valley members over at the game wearing these new shirts! Get yours today!
Head on over to to order your shirt!
