Valley of Houston Requests Aid-

Hurricane Harvey has done a tremendous amount of damage to the Houston area. The Scottish Rite Valley of Houston has issues an Almoner's request for funds to aid Masonic Brothers and others currently in need of assisance. Visit the Houston Valley website at: Houston Funds Request 

 

If your KSA Chapter or Scottish Rite Valley is not conducting an organized drive for aid and funds, take this opportunity to assist our brothers.

 

As more is known about the needs in Florida relative to the damage of Hurricane Irma, we'll pass that along.

Celebrating the Craft 2017 Report

That the Scottish Rite Has Talent is a FACT. The Celebrating the Craft webcast was a great success (again). The total dollars has reached $450,410. ...and the winner of the talent contest was Brother Pete Johnson, Jr, 32nd Degree, from Tucson, (AZ). Brother Pete wowed the audience with his tenor saxophone.

 

Great Job Scottish Rite and KSA Knights! Now is the time to get "tuned-up" for next year. 

 

 

Kansas City Scottish Rite Opens 1903 Time Capsule

Fire nearly destroyed an historic church in Kansas City, MO last November. From the ashes came a Masonic laid corner stone. The time capsule was placed in 1903. The Scottish Rite of Missouri held a delightful and revealing "grand opening" on January 25th. Many Masonic related items were revealed and their historic value discussed. Check the videos at this site: KC Corner Stone

 

 

College Fraternities Founded by Masons

The September/October issue of the Scottish Rite Journal contains an article about College Fraternities that have been founded by Masons. Most of us are familiar with ACACIA (crest at left) but aren't aware of the many others. Perhaps your fraternity is on this list. Check page 8 of your hardcopy for the beginning of the list, or go to the following website to read the article on-line.

                  College Fraternity List

You may be surprised to find that one College Sorority was founded by a group of Eastern Star Ladies. Masons and masonic ideals are the basis of many organizations.

Interesting Statistics-

In a recent survey of members, the New England Historical Genealogical Society asked about Masonic membership. The responses from 4,190 members may show us a trend we already suspect.

  3% I am a Mason

23% My father is/was a Mason

34% One or both of my grandfathers were Masons

26% At least one of my great-grandfathers was a Mason

29% At least one of my more distant ancestors was a Mason

23% I don't know if any of my ancestors were Masons

12% No, none of my ancestors were Masons

 

These survey results are, at first, distressing... but, also challenging.
