Congratulations to our friends and brothers: David Peters, James L. Dove, Ricky Lee Weidow, Brad King, and Doug Metzger on being nominated and duly elected to receive the 33rd and last degree of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite for the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction of the United States. We will welcome you in Rochester, NY in August, 2017.
Scottish Rite Sovereign Grand Commander John William McNaughton has the pleasure to announce to the membership today that Active Member David Glattly, 33°, will succeed him as leader of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction upon his retirement in August 2017.
Some years ago the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library in Lexington, Massachusetts, purchased a white quilt, hand-embroidered in red. Each of the 72 blocks on this quilt features a symbol related to Craft, Scottish Rite and York Rite Freemasonry. White quilts decorated with red embroidery were part of a fashion for household textiles decorated with simple red stitching, sometimes called “redwork,” that enjoyed popularity from the late 1800s through the 1920s. Many needleworkers participating in the trend used commercially-produced patterns, stencils and transfers for their redwork projects.
