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 pleasure 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!
