Keep an eye on this page this coming Friday for your chance to get in early on reservations for our Friday, 17 November meeting. This is the evening that the Valley of Chicago will be visiting with us. We are expecting a big crowd that evening; with a large turnout from our own Valley, our Chicago Brethren and their Ladies, along with visitors from surrounding Valleys in our region. Priority will be given to our members and Chicago first, but the sooner we have everyone in the better we'll be prepared to accommodate everyone. I want to thank you now for your expected cooperation. The deadline for reserving dinners for that meeting will be Thursday, 9 November. Please wait until I post that am accepting reservations. Thank you.
The Valley's Holiday Party is right around the corner. It's on Friday, December 2, 2017 at the Cannstatter. Tickets are just $35 per person and that includes, a complimentary 2 drink Social Hour with hors d'oeuvres followed by a delicious buffet dinner. DJ Bill Scheivert is back again this year to entertain everyone. Bill loves performing for our Valley. How do I know that? When I inquired if he was available he told me that he already had another party booked for the same night as ours but was going to give it to one of his other guys so that he could work ours, Nice!
Order your tickets soon! Send your check made payable to 'Scottish Rite Bodies' to the Scottish Rite Office, Masonic Temple, One North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 191072-2520.
Our BIG Fall Family Life event is 'Christmas in Hershey.' This is a popular outing each year and we always sell out our ticket allotment. I have tickets available in the office and you can get some NOW for only $12 per person. The nice thing about this event is, you can go any day or time you want during the promotion, which I believe runs from November 11 until January 1. You want to be sure to check with the Park's web site at www.hersheypark.com or call 1-800-242-4236 to check the Park's availability for the date you want to go. Some days the Park's hours are different as well.
Remember Brethren: Our Family Life ticket purchases are subsidized for the use of you and your family only. We define family as: you, your spouse, you children and or grandchildren. It's not fair to your Brethren if you 'extend' your family. Please remember that.
Flyers to order your tickets are available on our Valley web site at www.philascottishrite.org/announcements.html or in your October and the upcoming November issues of THE DOUBLE EAGLE.
While on the Valley's Announcements page, you will also see advertisements for the Holiday Party and the BIG Spring Family Life event, Villanova vs Georgetown at the Wells-Fargo Center on Saturday, March 3, 2018!
