MASONIC TIDINGS May 2012

Valley of Toledo Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite Valley of Toledo is On The Move!!!! As if that wasn’t enough...on April 28th,

James R. Weyer, 32°, photographer

Extraordinary aptly describes our Valley’s participation in recent Reunions. “Outside the box” thinking seems to be reaping tremendous rewards. On February 18th, three vans of Valley members traveled south on I-75 to participate with the Valleys of Cincinnati, Columbus and Dayton at the Dayton Complex in portraying the 4th, 9th, 16th, 25th and 26th degrees. In total, the Valley was represented by 60 members, with a total of 925 Scottish Rite Masons in attendance. Our portrayal of the 26th degree brought accolades.

seventy-two members of our Valley traveled north on I-75 to join with the Valley of Detroit for a Reunion at the Dearborn Complex. At this Reunion, a total of 350 Scottish Rite Masons witnessed the 4th, 14th, 16th, 26th and 31st/32nd degrees with our Valley portraying the 14th and 26th degrees. Our 21 new Scottish Rite brothers were treated to an excellent reunion. These “traveling” Reunions were considered a huge success. The change in venue, the fellowship, and brotherhood experiences have been seen to be as important as the degrees themselves.

So...What’s Next? It’s hard to say; these events will be hard to top. Nevertheless, the leadership of your Valley is working on some new ideas. Keep an eye out for the next event on the horizon. If these events are any indication of the success we’ll have in the future, you will certainly be missing out if you stay “in the box” when the next event comes around.
