Congratulations go out to the High Priest of DeJoinville Council, Princes of Jerusalem, and our Valley's Wardrobe Director, Russell Combs, who will receive the Meritorious Service Award (MSA) at the 2015 Annual Meeting at Seven Springs, next July!
Bro. Russ along with another Brother from our Valley were elected to receive the Award at yesterday's Annual Meeting.
At this time I cannot announce the other Brother's name as he has not been notified personally yet.
Way to go Russ!
Just to let everyone know, I recently gave the Valley's website a face lift. If you're on there and you're looking for the Valley calendar, the tab for it is in the upper right hand corner of the site. The tab reads "Our Events." Click on that and the calendar will open for you. Once opened you can now click on the actual event to get more information.
I'm using a new off site calendar maker called Tockify. It's free for the any of you web designers out there. I like it.
Also if you're one of the blog followers, the link for that can now be found under the "Contact Us" tab.
Hey, did I mention that Valley Family Summer Picnic tickets are flying out of the office lately? They are.
Folks are excited about our Valley picnic, well some folks anyway. I won't name names but a certain Valley Brother, tells me that he, doesn't "do picnics." So, he's going to miss out on all the fun.
But you don't have to! The picnic is scheduled for Saturday, 26 July, from noon to 5 PM at the picnic grove at Canstatter, 9130 Academy Road in NE Philadelphia. EASILY accessible from I-95!
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for folks 12 and under. Make your check payable to "Scottish Rite Bodies" and put it in the mail today to the Scottish Rite Office, Masonic Temple, One North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107-2520.
If you're thinking "I'll just show up and get my tickets the day of the picnic," THINK AGAIN. There will be NO, NONE, NADA, tickets available at the picnic. They must be purchased in advance. Your Master Mason friend can come for FREE but he must have a ticket! Call the Scottish Rite Office to order his. His family can come too for the regular price.
Our above mentioned Brother is going to miss out on the picnic Lunch and Dinner, the fellowship and the fun, but again, YOU DON'T HAVE TO!
Just wanted to let everyone know that our recent Valley T-shirt sale to benefit the Valley's Almoner Fund raised a grand total of $672.98!
If you bought one of the shirts, wear it proudly because it not only represents our Valley, but your good works in our Valley!
We will have another shirt campaign in the Fall. Stay tuned!
