Good Morning everyone and welcome to Friday!
This coming Monday is our Dinner Reservation Deadline for next Friday's visit by the Sovereign Grand Commander. If I do not have you on the list when I close the office on Monday, YOU WILL NOT BE JOINING US FOR DINNER ON FRIDAY NIGHT! No ifs, ands or buts. If you haven't called, emailed or clicked 'Going' (through our Valley Facebook group) yet and you plan to join to us, get it done TODAY!
Next Wednesday, 6 April is the final rehearsal for the 32°. Ill. Daniel Martin, 33°, Degree Master has told me that attendance at the rehearsals so far hasn't been that great. He's asking everyone to be try to be there on Wednesday. This is the Cast that will present the Degree in front of our Sovereign Grand Commander. Our best effort needs to be there! Although this is a Ceremonial Cast rehearsal, Illustrious Bro. Dan is asking that Allegory Cast members try to attend as well. Also Honor Guard members should be there too. Ill. Bud Garvey, 33°, our Valley's 'Protocol Czar' will also be there to rehearse the reception of Scottish Rite/Masonic Dignitaries.
We have a big week ahead, with the Reunion on Friday night and then the Annual Officer's Training on Saturday. The Conference will be held again this year at the Jenkintown Masonic Temple. All Elected and Appointed Officers are expected to attend. Our Commander-in-Chief has stated that Officer Line advancement will be weighed by your attendance at the Conference. He reiterated that last night at the Executive Committee meeting. The Conference begins with Breakfast served at 7:30 AM by Valley Bro. Joseph Rocchi, thanks again Joe! The Conference kicks off at 8:30 and we'll have you out of there by noon. If you plan to come and haven't registered yet, please do so by today. I have to get the materials together and I need to know how many packets to make up. Thank you.
Well, that will do it for now. Have a great R.E.D. Friday everyone and an even better week ahead!
