Our Fall Reunion is TBD and scheduled for fall 2016 (This will be in memory of Ill Bro. James N. Cantrell). This is in the planning phase and may move to Spring Class, more information will be in the coming months. The DOW and Degree Captains are asking for new cast members to step foward.
Being the General Secretary of the Valley of Columbus, I have found one of the most important duties of a Secretary is keeping up the membership roster, which contains your mailing address and contact information. If you move and do not notify the Secretary, your correspondence goes to the wrong address and it costs your Scottish Rite, or any other Body you may belong to, money.
As you all know, the cost of mail is going “out of sight”. Take a little time, inform the
Secretary of your new address and you will receive all the newsletters, dues
notices, and any other information that is important to you. We have many members
who we cannot reach by mail and consequently are going to be suspended because
of Non-Payment of Dues.
As we hope all of our members want to continue their membership, things happen so the proper way to end your membership is to make sure that you are paid up (dues) and request a Demit. Please help your Secretary and notify him if you should change your address. Please check your dues card!!!!!!It should read 2016. Please remit your dues. When your dues are received at the Scottish Rite Center, your card will be promptly mailed out. If you have any questions concerning your dues, please let the General Secretary know.
