It is anticipated that this will be the last Reunion that the Valley of Tampa will hold in their existing building. Exciting times are in their future as they do the right thing, at the right time, by right-sizing their Valley building for their members, the fraternity of Freemasonry, and more especially the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite – Valley of Tampa.
In making this last Reunion in the existing building special and notable, they are offering to any Valley in the Orient of Florida an opportunity to bring new candidates to be received into the A.A.S.R. to a one-day Reunion that will confer only the five mandatory degrees (they will not be communicating the other 27 degrees). You can see the schedule of events for the day by visiting the Valley of Tampa website at https://tampascottishrite.org/2022-spring-reunion/. To make it special, ILL James D. Cole, 33°, Sovereign Grand Commander will be there for the Reunion and will consecrate the class.
If you are located in the geographic area of the Valley of Orlando (Districts 13, 15, 16 and 17) there are special steps that must be taken to ensure you are able to participate and become a 32° Master of the Royal Secret by the end of the day on the 19th. If you are in any of the districts listed above and will be submitting your petition to attend the one-day reunion in Tampa, please call ILL Keith Albright, General Secretary at 407-657-4550 or send him an email to: GenSecOrl@gmail.com and he will explain what is required, and the deadlines associated with this one-day class opportunity. The Deadline for registration is March 10, 2022.
