Scottish Rite Express


Valley of Des Moines
Orient of Iowa

June 15, 2015

There is still time, and openings, for the American Masonic Education Symposium, June 25 -27, 2015 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

This event will be host to some of the finest speakers and authors on Masonry in the country, and is well worth the time to attend.  It is very rare for these speakers to be gathered in one location, and rarer still for them to come to the Midwest.  This may be the opportunity of a lifetime.  Please don't miss it!

Registration is $175.00 which covers the cost of all meals and materials.  There are 3 wonderful Festive Boards planned with top notch menus at each and hors d'oeurves preceding them & two lunches. Hotel lodging will be on your own.  The Doubletree is only a few blocks from the Scottish Rite, and there are other hotels nearby.   

If you are unable to attend the entire Symposium, and only want to come and hear Ill Arturo de Hoyos or     SGC Ronald A. Seale, 33° speak the Festive Boards with hors d'oeurves are $50 each, and lunches will be $30.

All events will be held at the Cedar Rapids Scottish Rite, located at 616 A Avenue NE.  Attendance is limited to the first 200 registrants, so make your reservation today, before the last openings fill up.

You may register, and pay on-line through the Grand Lodge of Iowa webpage at:
or call the Grand Lodge Office at:  319-365-1438

Golf Outing

It is time for the annual Scottish Rite Golf outing.  This is your chance to take a Friday afternoon off and spend some time on the course.  Our friends at Terrace Hills Golf Course in Altoona, have generously allowed us a Friday afternoon to have our outing.  It will include 18 holes of golf (cart included), prizes, and a steak dinner following play.  The event is an outing, so keep score if you want but the idea is to have fun.  It is open to all.  This might be a great chance to invite your non-Masonic golfing buddy along for a chance to see what we are all about.

How Much? $80 (Fees, cart, dinner, & prizes)
