Thursday, September 10, at 6:30 pm ET: The Scottish Rite will be celebrating the Feast of Tishri. The Feast of Tishri (or Feast of Succoth) is a symbol of freedom.

We have an outstanding evening planned and hope that you can join us. This will also be a promotional night - Master Masons interested in joining the Scottish Rite will receive their meals free.
