Fall Reunion and Double Eagle Gala

Last weekend we welcomed 18 new members to Scottish Rite as members of the Glen W. Lamb 32° K.C.C.H. & Eugene L. Smith 32° K.C.C.H. Memorial Class. Things started off great with a grilled pork chop dinner provided by our "Kitchen Krew." From dinner we adjourned to the auditorium for the beginning of the reunion.

Double Eagle Gala As part of our introductions, we were fortunate to have the elected line of the Grand Encampment of the Knights Templar of the U.S.A and the Eminent Grand Master, William H. Koon II. Grand Master Koon, welcomed the members of the class and shared his experience as a Scottish Rite candidate, thirty-three years ago. What a great testament of Masonic unity and cooperation!

The first weekend of the reunion was excellent. We had outstanding degree work by our ritualists as well as huge support from our sound, lights, stage, wardrobe, and class marshals. It takes numerous people to make a successful reunion and we definately had support from everyone involved.

However, we have only enjoyed half of the planned festivities. We still have degrees to perform, lessons to learn and fun to share. It all begins with our BBQ rib dinner on Friday night, November 5th at 5:00 pm. The work begins at 6:00 pm with the 20th degree, the Master of the Symbolic Lodge.

On Saturday, November 6th following the degree work, we will have our huge celebration of Scottish Rite Masonry, the Double Eagle Gala. The Double Eagle Gala will be held immediately following the 32nd degree at 5:30 pm. Get ready for red, white, blue, and gold in observance of this patriotic time of year and don't forget your dancing shoes. The gala will feature a live band, "Freestyle," dinner by Great Caterers of Iowa, and remarks from our new Scottish Rite Masons.

If you haven't made your reservations now is the time. This cost is just $35 per person and tickets are going fast. A call (515-288-8927) or email ( to the Scottish Rite office is all it takes to reserve your spot for this spectacular event.
