Hello, June. Hello, June gloom. Hello, San Diego County Fair. Hello, summer. Hello, heat!
The month of June is here and for Scottish Rite, it was time to honor Al Bahr Shriners during our June 1st Stated Meeting Dinner. It was a great affair with the Potentate and his Divan in attendance. When the Potentate, Illustrious Sir Peter Krickhuhn, asked the audience who were Shriners to stand up, I would say over 80% of the men stood up. Funny, though, they were all wearing Scottish Rite caps. Just go to show the unity that Masonry brings to all our organizations.
June also means that we have the Philippine Independence Day Dinner and Fund Raiser on June 4th. This was an event brought to you by the Filipino Masons in San Diego County and benefits the San Diego RiteCare Childhood Language Center and the San Diego Scottish Rite Community Foundation.
There were close to three hundred people in attendance and the camaraderie was palpable, to say the least. There were lots of food and drinking, and money was raised for two worthy causes.
Next up is our New Members Orientation coming up on June 8th. Here, we present to our new members from the Spring Class all the possible opportunities they have to be involved with our Valley. I hope you can attend this orientation to lend support to our new members.
Please do not forget that July 6th is our Law Enforcement Night, where we honor the law enforcement officers of our county. Most of the cities and communities in San Diego County will be represented. On this evening, you will see and meet the “who’s who” of law enforcement from your city and community. Please make your reservations now for this annual event by visiting the Reservations section of this website or call the office.
NOTE: As a member, if you have not been receiving emails from Scottish Rite and wish to do so, please provide us with your latest email address by calling the office.
Please stay safe and healthy.
