Brethren, are you ready for the Fall Reunion?  This reunion will be held together with the Valley of Peoria at the Masonic Temple in Galesburg (3415 Lincoln Park Dr., Galesburg, IL  61401), on the 19th of October!  Keep an eye on this page, watch our Facebook page and look for a Valley Voice from our secretary with more details.  We look forward to seeing you, and while you’re at it, there are lots of Master Masons out there who would make great Scottish Rite Masons, give them a petition!  You can print one out here .

Congratulations to our Commander in Chief and newest 33° in the Valley of Moline – Timothy J. Vice, MSA, 33°!

Brethren, Valley of Moline’s new Knights of St. Andrew, following the stated meeting of Sept 9th, had the please of Knighting two of our members that were unable to join us at ICOD, one new active member (Bruce Bennett), and four Honorary members: Bob Millikan, MSA, 33°; Tim Vice, MSA, 33°; Lauren Crawford, MSA, 33°; and Tom Podrovitz. MSA.  The ceremony was conducted by our Knight Commander, Jamie Emery (MSA-Select).  We still have plans to cast the 29° entirely with KStA members.  As a service group for the Valley we are continually looking for ideas that will bring us together in fellowship.  We also assist the four bodies with activities, when requested.  If that sounds like something you’d like to be part of, email the Knight Commander, Jamie Emery, or the Knight Secretary, Michael McDorman and we will get you some information to help you along the way.  We look forward to hearing from you, and to a stronger Scottish Rite!
