SR Express - 2017 Honor Men have been selected

June 20, 2017
2017 HONOR MEN HAVE BEEN SELECTED!

Earlier this spring the members of the Des Moines Valley who have been honored with the Knight Commander Court of Honour (32nd KCCH) and the Inspector General Honorary (33°) met to ballot on honor selections for the 2017 session of the Supreme Council.  Once the members of the Des Moines Valley had an opportunity to make their wishes known, these recommendations were forwarded to our Sovereign Grand Inspector General, Gary L. Sissel, 33°.  Following the approval of Ill. Bro. Sissel these recommendations were then submitted by him to the Active Members of the Supreme Council of the 33rd degree, Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite for the Southern Jurisdiction of the USA.  

The members of the Supreme Council met in a special session to discuss and ballot on the nominations for all honors for the Southern Jurisdiction.  

The Des Moines Valley is pleased to announce that we received 7 Knight Commanders of the Count of Honour and 3 Inspectors General Honorary.

SR Express - Passing of a Brother

Announcing the passing of
             Ill. Brother Robert M Speed, 33° 
  

Brethren,
 
It is with a heavy heart that I write to you to inform you of the passing of Robert M. Speed, 33°.   
 
To say Brother Bob's passing leaves a void in the musical life of the Scottish Rite would be a great understatement.  Bob's skills at the organ were tremendous, a result of his over 75 years as an organ student, then teacher, and performer as Church Organist.  Bob's vast skills included improvisation, which enabled us to enjoy great "marching music" during the degree work, Fanfares of unsurpassed complexity, and incidental music that never failed to enhance the activity going on during the degree. We were so fortunate that even after he had retired from all other organist jobs, he was willing to continue as one of our organists.  We will always remember Bob when we sing the special final "Amen" of the 32nd degree that he composed for us.

Bob never complained about his failing health.  Just a couple of years ago, you would never have guessed that he was entering his mid-eighties.  He remained vibrant and healthy, and I remember him still taking spinning classes at the gym during those years when most of us would had given up on such activity... but  a couple years ago,  he began to fail.  He remained optimistic much of the time, but at the last reunion, he indicated that he didn't feel up to playing for all the the degrees any longer, but would continue playing for the 32nd Degree, and turned in much of his music.  I accepted his partial resignation reluctantly, but with the realization that this was something he needed for his health and his peace of mind.

As a friend, I will personally miss Bob greatly.  His sense of humor, his quick wit, and his musical knowledge, were all precious to me. Just sitting and talking with Bob was an educational experience and always ended with a laugh!

As a conductor, I have never worked with anyone as knowledgeable, forgiving, patient, and helpful as Bob Speed.
 
I'm sure everyone in the Double Eagle Chorus has special memories of Bob.  Take just a moment today, and remember him.
 
I'll let you know when I learn something about memorial services.
 
Ron Lindhart, Director
Des Moines Double Eagle Chorus

Bob was raised in Capital Lodge on Feb. 26, 1963 to the sublime degree of a Master Mason. He joined Scottish Rite on June 25,1994 and received the Knight Commander Court of Honour on October 4, 1999. He received the Inspector General Honorary (33°) on November 10, 2007.

Keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
 
Sincerely and Fraternally,

Shane A. Harshbarger
Secretary/Registrar

SR Express - Reservations for 300th Anniversary of GL of England are now closed

June 14, 2017
300th Anniversary of Grand Lodge of England
June 24, 2017

The 300th Anniversary celebration has proven to be immensely popular. Unfortunately that means that we will not be taking any additional reservations.

However, if you are interested in attending the Past Master Degree or the Forum on the History of English Freemasonry, we can accommodate additional reservations for these events only. The cost for these activities will be $10.00 and includes your event certificate. We need this reservation by June 19th so the proper certificates can be made.

Lastly, we are opening the Grand Lodge of Iowa as part of the festivities, so an apron is required in the lodge room.  We encourage you to bring or wear your own apron if you have one.  It should make for a much simpler process when we are opening the Grand Lodge.  There will be a quantity available for those who need an apron.  Past Master aprons are welcome as well.

June 24, 2017

The 300th Anniversary celebration is 25 days away and the response has been excellent.  We have 375 reservations for the event, which is spectacular.  This will be one of the biggest events in the Des Moines Valley in several years.  We are looking forward to a great day to celebrate Freemasonry in Iowa.
Please note, registration closes on June 10th and we will be unable to take any reservations beyond this date.  Please share this email with anyone that you know that may not have registered but you think might be wanting to attend.  We want them on the list but will be unable to accommodate late reservations.

Secondly, we have a large number of guests that are not going to be familiar with our building.  Please help to direct them to restrooms, coat rooms, etc. and to make them feel welcome at the Des Moines Scottish Rite.  

Ben Mayer sent me the attached picture of the top of the time capsule.  Amazing work by him!  I can't wait to see it finished.
 


Lastly, we are opening the Grand Lodge of Iowa as part of the festivities, so an apron is required in the lodge room.  We encourage you to bring or wear your own apron if you have one.  It should make for a much simpler process when we are opening the Grand Lodge.  There will be a quantity available for those who need an apron.  Past Master aprons are welcome as well.

SR Express - 2nd Weekend of Reunion/Scottish Rite Cajun Boil

The 2017 Spring Reunion in honor of Illustrious Brother, Theodore H. Miller, 33° and Honored Brother, John D. Japhet, 32° KCCH will conclude this weekend.  The first weekend was excellent and I am sure this weekend will be of equal fun and quality.

The class officers are: 
President: Aaron Ritchie of Harding Lodge #649   
Secretary: Greg Crocker of Osceola Lodge #77 Orator: Tony Scaglione  of Daylight Lodge #660 

We will kick things off with dinner tomorrow night in the WT &; Edna Dahl Grand Banquet room at 5:00 pm.  It will be tailgate party style with Buffalo wings from Jethro's BBQ along with ham and cheese sliders, bacon wrapped tater tots, veggie tray, and chocolate chip cookies by the kitchen krew.  Cost is $10 per person. 

The 19th Degree, Grand Pontiff will begin promptly at 5:40 pm in the auditorium.  This is a relatively new degree to our Valley, so if you haven't seen it, a full auditorium is always a good thing.  After the 19th Degree is the 20th, imagine that!  The 20th is the Master of the Symbolic Lodge at 6:45 pm, the Prussian Knights will make an appearance at 7:40 pm and last but not least will be the Knights of the Royal Axe at 8:55 pm.  As many of you know, the 22nd degree features our Double Eagle Chorus and is a fan favorite.
Saturday morning kicks off early and with degrees of a very serious and symbolic nature, these are the Religious degrees of the Council of Kadosh.  The 23rd, Chief of the Tabernacle begins at 7:30 am, followed by 24th at 8:05 am, 25th at 8:55 am, 26th at 9:35 am, 27th at 10:15 am.  The members of the Knights of St. Andrew will finish off the morning with the 28th Degree, Knight Commander of the Temple.  Lunch will be a "build your own burger buffet" at 12:00 pm.  We will recognize our newest 50 year members and the class officers as part of the lunch program.

Then it will be back to the auditorium for the finality of the reunion.  The 29th Knight of St. Andrew at 12:35 pm and Knight Kadosh at 1:25 pm.  This will complete the Council of Kadosh degrees.  The Consistory degrees (31st & 32nd) are completely different in both form and substance.  The 31st degree takes us to Ancient Egypt for the Court of the Dead at 2:50 pm, while the 32nd Degree (4:00 pm) reveals the Royal Secret.
Our special guest for the weekend will be our Sovereign Grand Inspector General, Gary L. Sissel, 33°.  Gary also serves as the Grand Secretary General of the Supreme Council.

Following the degree work will be our first ever Cajun Boil featuring shrimp, crawfish, andouille sausage, jambalaya, and dirty rice by Great Caterers of Iowa.  The weather looks great so it will be held in the north parking lot.  This is a casual affair so feel free to change following the 32nd degree and even bring a lawn chair.  We have ten reservations remaining so if you haven't signed up and want to attend, call in today and grab of the last spots. 

See you tomorrow night!

SR Express - Scottish Rite 2017 Spring Reunion

Eagles

2017 Spring Reunion is fast approaching!

Our Spring Reunion honoring Ted Miller, 33° & Don Tedrick, 32° KCCH is just around the corner, in fact it begins
Friday night (March 24) at 5:00 pm.This reunion will be held over two weekends and we will confer all 29 of the Scottish Rite Degrees.
The reunion dates are March 24/25 and April 7/8. Following the 32nd degree on April 8 will be our first ever "Cajun Low Country Boil".
Our first weekend will begin on Friday, March 24th. We will confer the 4th to 8th degrees. Dinner ($10) will be served at 5:00 pm in the WT and Edna Dahl Grand Banquet Room and will be Yankee Pot Roast, Mashed Potatoes &; Gravy, Baby Carrots, Salad, and Cupcakes. Please make a reservation by calling the SR office (515-288-8927) or rsvp@dmscottishrite.org.

The reunion opening will be at 6:00 pm. If you haven't been to a reunion in the past few years, please consider attending. It is important that our new Scottish Rite Masons see as many familiar faces as possible as they begin their Scottish Rite journey.

Saturday, March 25th will begin promptly at 8:00 am with the 9th Degree, Elu of the Nine. You might recall our old friends from the 3rd degree reappear. This is a great example of how the Scottish Rite expands on the drama of the Symbolic Lodge. We will portray all of the Lodge of Perfections and Chapter Rose Croix degrees and will finish the day with the 18th degree, Knight Rose Croix. Following the work, we will have a social hour for all in attendance.

The 2nd weekend will take place April 7/8 with the Council of Kadosh and Consistory Degrees. The 2nd Friday is always a great night with the 19th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd degrees. These degrees are always well performed and are fun to watch. We will  be having a tailgate party dinner with Buffalo Wings from Jethro's BBQ, Slider Sandwiches, and Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert at 5:00 pm on April 7th.

Saturday, April 8th will be the culmination of our Reunion. We will begin with the 23rd degree, Chief of the Tabernacle at 7:45 am. The 23rd to 26th degrees are recent additions to our reunion schedule, each having been portrayed only a few times. they are the "religious" degrees of the Council of Kadosh and give insight into the early years of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. If you haven't seen them yet, you are always welcome to be a sideliner during a degree.

The end of the day will bring the 32nd degree, Master of the Royal Secret. This degree shares with our new brothers the Holy Doctrine and the Royal Secret. This degree shares with our new brothers the Holy Doctrine and the Royal Secret. It also gives a brief synopsis of all 32 Scottish Rite degrees.

After the 32nd degree, it will be time to celebrate. We are having a Cajun boil party. It will feature shrimp,andouille sausage, corn on the cob, crawfish, and blackened catfish. The event is a causal affair and should be a great party. This will be a stag event as we want you to bring your lady to the 300th anniversary party on June 24th.

Our party will begin at 6:00 pm. The cost is $26 per person. Due to the menu, we need your reservation in advance. Please make you reservation by March 30th by calling or emailing the Scottish Rite office. Advance payment is greatly appreciated.

Being a Scottish rite Mason is a special thing. If you know of a Master Mason who hasn't joined Scottish Rite, please invite him to be a part of this reunion.
