After another month of closure, it is our sad duty to announce that the San Diego Scottish Rite Masonic Center will remain closed for the month of August or until such time we are allowed to open by the powers that be, namely, the state, county, and local governments. Our Grand Master has emphasized that his directive last March, prohibiting any Masonic gatherings of any kind in California, remains in effect until further notice.
Virtual Fall Class Reunion
Our SGIG, Ill Frank Loui, 33° has asked us to plan for a 2020 Fall Class Reunion. The Supreme Council confirms that we can communicate degrees instead of exemplifying them due to COVID-19. Communicating a degree is much simpler than a full exemplification of that degree. The only requirement is that the five obligatory degrees will be communicated by the SGIG.
This means that we can have a virtual Fall Class Reunion and we have the opportunity to bring in new members!!! Remember, the more members we bring in, the better our chances of having more red and white hats available for distribution.
We need candidates! We ask you “beat the bushes” now and get as many candidates as you can to sign up for this upcoming class. It will be a historical event and it will actually be an easy way to join. We hope to have an updated application available by September 1.
Please start looking at your area of influence and start identifying your possible candidates.
