Good Morning and Great Friday everyone!
Well, it's here. This evening is the close of our 2014 Spring Reunion.
Our Class Honoree and fellow Valley of Philadelphia member, Ill. Robert J. Bateman, 33, Right Worshipful Grand Master will be there to address, 'his' Class in his home Valley. Our Class is the first in the State named in his honor. It is fitting that his home Valley is the first.
Also visiting with us will be the Valley of Philadelphia's "Other Best Friend," Lady Faye Baker. She'll be accompanied by our "Best Friend," Ill. Russell W. Baker, 33, Active Member of the Supreme Council and Deputy for Pennsylvania.
During dinner we will present the Valley of Philadelphia's Lifetime Achievement Award to Illustrious Valley Brother and Past Treasurer, John H. Platt Jr. 33. I can't think of a better way to recognize John for his many years of service to our Valley. Also our Deputy will present a special award from the Supreme Council to a deserving Valley Brother. Who is that Brother? I know and Illustrious Bro. Russ knows. You'll find out tonight.
The Officers and Cast Line of Kilwinning Chapter of Rose Croix, will present the 18th Degree, 'Knight of Rose Croix' followed by the presentation of the 32nd Degree, Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret, by the Officers of Benjamin Franklin Consistory. Both presentations will no doubt be excellent.
The weather folks are calling for rain during the evening drive. Be careful on your way to the Temple. See you tonight!
