There is a call for Candidates and Degree Teams to attend the 5th Annual Southwest Scottish Rite Regional Reunion, hosted by the Phoenix Valley, May 12th—16th, at the Chaparral Suites in Scottsdale, Arizona. This will be a unique opportunity for the Southwest Orients of the Southern Jurisdiction of Scottish Rite Masons, (Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah) to hold a combined Reunion by gathering together to confer all twenty-nine Degrees upon worthy Candidates, as a courtesy to their home Valleys.
The 2009 event, held in Long Beach, California, conferred the Scottish Rite Masonry Degrees to over 65 Candidates from multiple jurisdictions.
All 29 Degrees will be exemplified, but the organizers also have special dispensation to have a Louisiana Degree team perform the Scottish Rite 1st, 2nd and 3rd Degrees on the evenings of May 12th and 13th for all interested Master Masons. These degrees are rarely seen outside of Louisiana, and are unique in U.S. Freemasonry. Cornerstone Book Publishers' Michael Poll, 1st Vice President of the masonic Society, will be a featured speaker.
An outdoor Western BBQ is being planned for Friday Night the 14th. The Reunion will culminate with a Banquet on Saturday night, and will include a special Native American Powwow dancing entertainment.
