Des Moines Valley History about to be made!

We are quickly approaching a major accomplishment for the Des Moines Valley.  This weekend the members of the Des Moines Scottish Rite, along with our families, friends, and 13 great candidates will celebrate performing all 29 Scottish Rite degrees and honor two outstanding Scottish Rite Masons, Charles W. Iles 32° KCCH and Bobby E. Rice 32° KCCH. 

This historic event is the result of many hours and years of hard work and commitment to Scottish Rite Freemasonry.  It certainly proves that Freemasonry is Brotherhood.  

We will begin on Friday night with dinner at 5:00 pm in the Tapestry Room.  Our kitchen krew will be hard at work preparing Minute Steaks with mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes and apple crisp.  Cost is $10.

After dinner we will continue our journey through the Council of Kadosh degrees, the 23rd to the 26th.  These degrees are the philosophical degrees of the Kadosh degrees where the philosophy of Judaism, Islam and Christianity are introduced.

Saturday November 1, 2014

The evening will conclude with our signature event, the Double Eagle Gala.  We will begin at 6:00 pm with social hour consisting of libations and passed hors de oeuvres of bruchetta pomodoro and stuffed mushrooms.  

For dinner, our Master of Kadosh has chosen an option of Beef Tenderloin or Tilapia with Lemon Cream Sauce.  A vegetarian meal, Grilled Portobello Mushroom on a Polenta cake, is available.

For our program we will welcome our new Scottish Rite Masons from the summer class in honor of Bobby E. Rice, 32° KCCH and our fall class in honor of Charles W. Iles, 32° KCCH.  

Our special guest for the evening will be Gary L. Sissel, 33º SGIG of Iowa and his lady Carole.

Following our program, the band Slipstream will provide music from the 1960's to today.  If you haven't made your reservation and wish to attend, please contact the Scottish Rite office (515-288-8927) or via email as soon as possible.
