Dear Brethren and Friends:

Good Morning and Great Friday everyone!

TODAY, is the reservation DEADLINE for next Friday's Spring Reunion Closing Night. Do you have a dinner reserved? If not do it today!

Next Friday, Kilwinning Chapter of Rose Croix and Benjamin Franklin Consistory will present the 18th Degree, "Knight of Rose Croix" and the 32nd Degree, "Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret" respectively, to the members of our Spring Class.

Our Class Honoree and Illustrious Valley Brother, Robert J. Bateman, 33, Right Worshipful Grand Master, will be officially received. Having spoken with him about this, I can tell you that our Illustrious Brother is very excited and moved that his home Valley is the first in the State to honor him this way.

Also joining us will be the Valley of Philadelphia's "Best Friend," Illustrious Russell W. Baker, 33, Active Member of the Supreme Council and Deputy for Pennsylvania, accompanied as always by Lady Faye. Be sure to be there to welcome them back to our Valley!

During dinner our Commander-in-Chief, Ill. Arthur D. Becker, 33 MSA will present the Valley of Philadelphia's 'Scottish Rite Lifetime Achievement Award' to Illustrious Valley Brother, John H. Platt Jr. 33, Past Treasurer. Normally, the Award is presented at our Annual Meeting, but as we will have both the Grand Master and the Deputy present, Illustrious Bro. Art felt we couldn't have a better opportunity to recognize Illustrious Bro. John and thank him in grand style for his many years of service to our Valley.

And, we will also welcome our new Brothers, the members of the "Ill. Robert J. Bateman, 33, Right Worshipful Grand Master Class," as Sublime Princes of the Royal Secret!

Sounds like a very exciting evening, doesn't it? If you haven't made a reservation yet, do it now! Call 215-563-1814 TODAY!
