One Day Class to Honor
Bob Rice, 32° KCCH

Master of Kadosh, Steve Jacobsen, has chosen to honor Bob Rice, 32° KCCH at our One Day Class to be held on June 28, 2014.  Bob was very active in both the Scottish Rite and Za Ga Zig Shrine for many years.  He was well known for recruiting new members in both organizations.

This reunion will feature 7 of the Scottish Rite degrees and our first ever presentation of the 19th Degree, Grand Pontiff.  In addition, to the mandatory degrees (4, 14, 18, 30, 32) the 31st degree, Inspector Inquisitor, will be a part of the reunion schedule.  It features an Egyptian motif and causes the candidate to consider his mortality in a very dramatic way.  The entire reunion schedule is below.
Following the reunion we will have a social hour with 
hors de oeuvres and toasts to honor our new class members.  There will also be a special toast commemorating the 700th Anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn.  The Battle of Bannockburn has a special connection to the Scottish Rite.  This battle resulted in the creation of the Knight of St. Andrew, which is our 29th degree.
