Scottish Rite Event

This Wednesday, January 13th is a very special and unique opportunity for the Masons of Iowa, sponsored by the Iowa Scottish Rite Masonic Foundation.  It is a dinner and speech by Dr. Richard Berman of the Grand Lodge of England.  He is the 2016 Prestonian lecturer of the Grand Lodge of England.  Dr. Berman is the author of several books on the development of Freemasonry.  As far as I can tell, this is the first ever visit to Iowa by a Prestonian lecturer.  This event should be a great supplement to the information that Ron Lindhart,33° has provided at our Royal Mile celebrations.  So in case you have forgotten…the first Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of England was Anthony Sayer.

We will begin with fellowship and social time beginning at 6:00 pm.  We have Grand Master of Masons in Iowa, MWB Arthur G. Crandon, Dr. Berman and several brothers from other Iowa Scottish Rite Valleys joining us, so please help them feel welcome.  At approximately 6:20, we will have dinner.  Dinner will be Caesar salad, prime rib, “real” mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, and double chocolate cake.  The cost is $10 per person.  If you haven’t made your reservations please do so by 12:00 pm Tuesday, January 12th

Dr. Berman’s presentation will follow dinner and will include a question and answer session. 

This event is open to Master Masons only.  Should you have any questions, please contact me.
