Scottish Rite Express

Scottish Rite Meet & Greet (April 1st)
Our next “meet and greet” is this Wednesday, April 1st. These events are a chance to stop in after work and share in the fellowship of Scottish Rite. We will have snacks and drinks available. It is also a time to bring prospective members so they can see some of what the Scottish Rite has to offer. If you know someone who would be a good addition to the fraternity, feel free to invite him. Stop in anytime from 4:30 pm to 7 pm on the following dates: April 1 / April 15
We will be meeting in the Consistory Library on 2nd Floor.
