Do you know?  Scottish Rite Trivia

The Sovereign Grand Commander is the top officer of the Scottish Rite in the Southern Jurisdiction.  A post currently held by Ronald Seale of Louisiana.  While no Iowan has ever served as Grand Commander, several Iowans have held prominent elected positions in the Supreme Council, in fact, our current SGIG, Gary L. Sissel, serves as the Grand Secretary General.  For a free steak dinner on Wednesday, September 30th, be the first to answer this trivia question.  What is the highest AASR office held by an Iowa Scottish Rite Mason and who was he?   Send your answer via email

Building Renovation Update

Wait until you see our banquet level hallway renovations, they are awesome!  After a busy summer of dust, paint, plaster, terrazzo, marble, crystal, carpet, and wallpaper, we have a completely renovated and updated the hallway area outside of the Dahl Grand Banquet room with new carpet and crystal chandeliers.  The ladies lounge has dressing rooms and make up stations as well as an updated and expanded restroom area.  Thanks to generous donations from Russ Johnson Jr., the WT & Edna Dahl Trust, and the Friends of the Des Moines Consistory, we were able to make major improvements in one of our most public areas.  Come check it out!
