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.

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.
