Brethren: This Valley has been blessed by the dedication and hard work of Ill. Joel Bremer, 33° for many years and most recently as Personal Representative. As we approach the end of the year, Bro. Joel has elected to step aside from his responsibilities as Personal Representative. Having served in that role previously, I know how difficult of a job that it can be and Joel has been a significant asset to this Valley. Ill. Joe Harrison, 33° SGIG has graciously accepted Bro. Joel’s desire to step aside and joins all of us in wishing the very best for Joel as he continues his Masonic journey.
To provide some continuity in the interim, Ill. Bro. Harrison has appointed me as the Interim Personal Representative through December 31, 2017. We know that Joel will continue to be active in Scottish Rite and look forward to working with him for many, many years to come.
Hoyt O. Samples, 33°
Interim Personal Representative
Approximately 40 members of the Chattanooga Scottish Rite met on 10/28/17 from 10 am to 1 pm to discuss topics of interest including: Membership and Retention, Reunions and Ritual, Masonic Education, Hierarchy, Scottish Rite Foundation, Fundraising, and other items brought forward from the membership. You will hear more about the ideas that were presented, along with those that will be implemented, in the near future.
The Fall Reunion that was scheduled for Oct. 27-28 is cancelled due to lack of petitions. We are making a concentrated effort to have a large class in Spring 2018. We apologize to everyone affected by the cancellation, especially potential candidates and degree team members.
