Scottish Rite Day Reservations Closed

Dear Brethren: 

Just to let everyone know we've cut off accepting reservations to the Scottish Rite Day event.
The Commander-in-Chief expressed concern with the way reservations were being made that there wouldn't be seats for any of our new Brethren that will become Scottish Rite Masons through the One Day Masonic Journey; and while National Scottish Rite Day does belong to all Scottish Rite Masons across the country, the Candidates are the focus of the event and we have to provide opportunity for them to attend.
I'm sorry that we cannot accommodate everyone. Thank you all for your continued interest and participation in our Valley and its programs.
Don't forget our 'Christmas in Hershey Family Life Event, ' tickets are in! Also, be sure to get your check in for the Valley's Annual Holiday Party happening on Saturday, 17 December at the Heritage Ballroom in Holmes, PA. That's going to be a very fun evening!

Our National Scottish Rite Day Observation


Our Commander-in-Chief notified me yesterday that he has decided to make our event on Saturday, November 12, 2016, at the Yardley Country Club, 1010 Reading Road, Yardley, Pennsylvania, free for all Valley members that wish to attend. However, as of this posting only 173 of the 200 seats in the room remain. This is a first come, first served program.

The evening will begin with a cash bar Social Hour from 5 to 6 PM. A buffet dinner wll follow at 7PM with this menu: Stuffed Flounder, Beef Short Ribs, Veal Marsala, Portobello Ravioli, Sauteed Zucchini and a pastry assortment for dessert.

DJ entertainment will be provided.

If you wish to attend please call 215-563-1814. I will make two reservations for you from this notification, for you and your significant other. Please do not say, 'and include Jim, Bob and Joe and their Ladies too.' As this is a first come, first served event, if a Brother and his Lady wish to attend, he must contact me. No Exceptions.

This evening has been published in THE DOUBLE EAGLE and I've posted the flyer to the Valley Facebook group. If you've ordered tickets I will make your reservation and return your check to you as long as seats remain. 3 Brethren have already sent in checks and their reservations have been honored and they are in the count. Your ticket fee will be returned to you.

As reservations are made I will keep you updated as to how many seats remain.

Thank you for your anticipated and expected cooperation
