• March is the month to join the Scottish Rite

    March 12th, 2018

    Master Masons in search of further light are invited to petition the Valley of Palm Springs and become Scottish Rite Masons. You will receive Degrees 4 thru 32 at our Spring Reunion April 7th and April 21st. There's much Masonic learning to be had beyond the 3rd Degree. Interested? You must submit your petition to the Valley of Palm Springs before our next Stated Meeting on March 28th.

Our first Stated Meeting of the new year, is in the books and had a fresh look! Although our fabulous dinner started off a little late, the menu and portions made up for it. For the first time in a long time, the Valley of Palm Springs held a presentation of the 4th Degree. I would like to personally thank our Degree Chairman, Arman Ordian, 32° PVM and our new 4th Degree team of Nick Seneca, 32°; Dan Oates, 32°; Jens Petersen, 32° PVM; Michael Sekera, 32°; Alan Franks, 32°; Rudy Velasco, 32°; Ben Manierre, 32° KCCH; Bill Lightner, 32° and Shaun Johnson, 32° for their dedication to the craft. With the number of members who have been stepping up recently and putting in the extra effort for our new programs, makes me confident that all of our goals for 2015 will be accomplished and the future of our Valley is on the path of progress.

For our March Meeting we will present our Annual Celebration of Remembrance and Renewal. In this ceremony, we remember those Brethren who have journeyed on to the "Celestial Lodge" above, those Brothers with whom we have shared the beauty and grandeur of Masonry with. I strongly urge all of our members and guests to attend our Celebration of Remembrance. Please mark your calendars now for our upcoming Special Events. Celebrating The Craft on Saturday, May 16 and our Annual Feast of Tishri on October 17, 2015. These are two exceptional events, and I will have more information to follow.

Last but not least, we are having a Scottish Rite Work Day on Saturday, March 28. We need people to help and donations in order to make this day a success.

Thank you,
Shane DaCosta, 32°
Venerable Master
