Dear Brethren and Friends,
Our Fall Reunion concludes on Friday, 18 December with the Special Rendezvous of Benjamin Franklin Consistory, 32°.
The Degree to be presented that evening will be the 32° Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret. The meeting will be held in Gothic Hall, but following the close the Brethren are asked to retire to Corinthian Hall on the second floor of the Temple.
The evening begins at 6PM in the Lower Level Banquet Room with a buffet dinner selected by our Valley's 'First Lady,' Mrs. Linda Melson. Lady Linda hopes you'll love: Selected Salads, Marinated Pepper Steak over White Rice, Broiled Tilapia, Homemade Baked Ziti, Roasted Red Bliss Potatoes, Broccoli Spears and Ice Cream to finish. The cost per person is $20 with the exception of the Class.

The Ladies of the Valley will have a very interesting program, “Eleanor Roosevelt” presented to them by actress, Linda Kenyon.
After the conclusion of the Degree, the Brethren and Ladies will be welcomed into Corinthian Hall for our salute to our Veterans, featuring an address by General and Brother, Wesley Craig, U. S. Army (Retired) and special appearance from the Color Guard of the First City Troop.
