My Brothers All: Our December 10th meeting will start with dinner at 6:30pm followed by after dinner entertainment provided by the singing group “The Mistle Tones.” In planning for this holiday event, please eMail your reservation to Ill Keith at, or call Ill Keith at 407-657-4550 to leave a message that you are attending and how many are in your party. By taking just a moment to make a reservation ensures sufficient food and seating so a good time is enjoyed by all.

Please remember all members are welcome to attend the dinner and evening’s events. Please keep in mind COVID protocols and directives 5 and 6 issued by the Grand Master and followed by our Sovereign Grand Inspector General. FYI – current COVID protocols will be followed to ensure the safety of us all. If you are comfortable following these protocols, please come out and enjoy the fraternal fellowship of the evening.

As a reminder, the Master Craftsman study groups are underway, and certificates of completion are being received and officially presented to those brothers who earned them. A second group has been assembled and started with “Esoterika,” the first module. If you are interested in participating in the recently started monthly study group, please contact Ill Keith at the Valley office via 407-657-4550 or via eMail at to ensure you are added to the mailing list and receive all invitations to participate via ZOOM. Keep in mind that participating in a study group enhances the Master Craftsman experience for everyone, and starts the building of fraternal friendships between those brothers who participate.

In each article prepared for the eNews, I encourage you to read the bi-monthly Scottish Rite Journal, and hopefully you are enjoying the excellent articles and information contained therein.

Until next time, remember the many things for which you are thankful!  Be safe in your travels; “whisper wise counsel in the ear of an erring brother;” and respect the dignity of all, as it makes you and our fraternity stronger one action at a time.  We want to ensure that what we are enjoying today will be available for those who will follow. Simply stated – “We lead the way today, so those who follow us can lead the way tomorrow!”  Thanks for your continued support and participation, and may the “Spirit of Fraternity” reign supreme within our “Valley of Orlando!”

May you and yours be blessed with the spirit of the season, and may we all stay COVID free, and enjoy a healthy, happy and prosperous 2022.
