DOUBLE EAGLE GALA and GEORGE R. CARR REUNION
The dust has now settled on the fall reunion and gala. By all accounts it was a huge success. Because of the efforts of our membership committee and the top line signers, we now have 28 new members in our Valley. However for these men to become Masters of the Royal Secret, it took much more. Our officers, committees, and ritualists worked countless hours and deserve a great deal of credit as well. It takes many hands for our reunions to happen. To each and everyone who helped out, attended, and supported the George R. Carr 33° G.C. Memorial Reunion, THANK YOU!!
There are a number of pictures on our Consistory Blog if you would like to check them out.

Holiday Party and Installation of OfficersIt is not too early to begin making plans for our annual Holiday party and installation of officers on December 9, 2009. Donald Driscoll 33° will be installed as our new Master of Kadosh for the Des Moines Consistory. We will also be installing the Chapter Rose Croix officers. Dan Hobson 32° KCCH will be the new Wise Master. Following the installation, we will adjourn to the Tapestry Lounge for the Holiday Party. We will have live music, heavy hors de oeuvres and drinks will be served. Last year almost 200 SR Masons and their ladies celebrated a great year and started a new one. We hope to see you there.
