Another reunion is in the books! If you were there, we were happy to have you. If you weren’t, you missed out. We started the day with a great breakfast (after a brief power outage). We witnessed the 14th and 16th degrees live. The area Job’s daughters exemplified the Robe lecture and the Living Cross beautifully. After lunch were the 26th and 32nd degrees live. Once we closed, Bro. Jim Foiles received his 50 year class gift, and we witnessed the Feast of the Paschal Lamb. Afterwards we adjourned to Montana Jack’s for a great dinner and fellowship.

The Blue Envelope fall campaign is here and should be hitting mail boxes shortly! We need Valley members to step up for our charities!

  Donating to the Blue Envelope appeal not only helps our charities, it helps our Valley with the Valley of Excellence program, and it helps you as members reach a mile marker in the Pathfinder Program.  Make a minimum donation of $1, record it in your Field Book (PF-SP-008) and log it on your members page. 

  Donate today, whether it’s $1, $10, $32, $100 or more! Every member’s donation counts towards our goal!
