Spring Multi State Reunion to honor
SG IG Emeritus Harry S. Barrows, 33°
The 2016 Spring Reunion is this weekend, April 8/9, and is in honor of SGIG Emeritus, Harry S. Barrows, 33°.  This reunion is unique as it will feature degree teams from throughout the Midwest.  It also follows a different format than our past reunions.  

We will begin this Friday, April 8 at 12pm with a welcome luncheon for all SR Masons and our new candidates.  Following lunch we will adjourn to the Consistory auditorium for our reunion opening and reception of candidates.  If you are able to join us, please do so, we are expecting a double digit class (20) candidates and it would be great for them to see a full auditorium for the opening and 4th degree.  We will have several distinguished visitors including our SGIG Gary L. Sissel, 33° and the SGIG for Nebraska, Charles V. Sederstrom, 33°.  The 4th degree will be presented by the members of the Cedar Rapids Valley.  
The entire schedule is below as well as the menus for the meals.  We look forward to seeing you on Friday and Saturday.
If you haven't made your Spring Gala reservations, please do so today, 515-288-8927.  There is a choice of NY Strip or Salmon.  Cost is $25 per person.
