Scottish Rite Installation & Holiday Party - 2011
Mark December 14th on your calendars for a big day at Scottish Rite!
John Clearman, 33° will be installed as the 2012 Master of Kadosh and Bryce Hildreth, 33° as Commander of the Council of Kadosh along with the other officers of the Des Moines Consistory and the Council of Kadosh.
Immediately following the installation, the 2011 Scottish Rite Officers invite you and your lady to our annual Scottish Rite Holiday Party. Please join us for music, Holiday cheer, food, and libations. There is no cost to attend but reservations are requested for planning purposes. Coat and tie is requested for the installation.
Last year, the Scottish Rite Masons of Central Iowa along with family and friends spent the better part of a Sunday packing 20,000 meals into boxes for our first ever, Meals from the Heartland project. While the packaging was a big part of the job, there were bins to refill, boxes to make, a truck to be loaded, and clean up to be done. In just a few short hours the work was completed and the spirit of charity was felt by all.
On Sunday, December 18th we will participate in this important project again. There will be two shifts to accommodate busy Holiday schedules. We plan to complete the project by 3:00 pm.
10:00 am Orientation and shift 1 packaging
12:00 pm Lunch (free)
1:00 pm Orientation and shift 2 packaging
This project was made possible by a grant made to the Des Moines Valley by the Iowa Scottish Rite Masonic Foundation.
