The 2016 Summer Reunion will honor three members of the Knight Commander Court of Honour, Charles V. Carpenter, James "Scotty" McDonald Jr., and Robert J. Mickle.
This reunion will begin with dinner on Friday evening, June 24th and will feature the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 14th degrees. On Saturday, June 25th we will confer the 15th, 16th, 18th, 20th, 29th, 30th, and 32nd degrees. This shortened reunion format will allow a Master Mason to complete his journey through the Scottish Rite in just one weekend, yet still receive many of the great lessons and lectures of our degrees.
The cost to join Scottish Rite is $325 ($275 if less than 31 years of age) and includes the 2016 dues. Candidates will receive all meals, a copy of the book "A Bridge to Light", the 14th Degree Pyramid, and a 32nd degree pin, Patent of Membership, and Class picture.
