I had demitted a couple years ago from one Scottish Rite valley but have since found what I hope will be a better fit at the Valley of Washington, DC. This particular valley has a different body conduct business on each of the first four Tuesdays of the month. Fifth Tuesday? Sandwich night, I guess. I look forward to getting involved again when I have time and am especially eager to get back to the Master Craftsman II course that has been sitting around for nearly three years. Something that especially attracted me is that they have four meetings per month, as opposed to just one. More opportunity to attend meetings.
In the meantime, I do not expect to have a lot of time to go to many of the Valley’s meetings for a little while but at least I know that when I do go, I will be in the presence of some pretty warm and welcoming brothers. The funny thing is that, given where I work nowadays, I would have to drive pretty close to the Alexandria Scottish Rite to get to DC. Oh well. I don’t suppose that should enter into any decision about my membership.
