Scottish Rite Friendships That Last A Lifetime

Preparing the stage and floor for a degree at the Scottish Rite Valley of Danville (IL)
I ran across this the other day.  In the Valley of Danville, during our reunion weekends (spring and fall) between degrees, long-time members of the Valley will talk to the class.  They'll tell them their personal experiences in the Scottish Rite, they'll answer questions, they'll give advise . . . we even have one guy that does an impromptu comedy routine (I think he still does that).  This is an excerpt of remarks I made to the Spring 2015 class at the Valley of Danville (IL) as they prepared to begin their journey.

". . . so take a little time this weekend to get to know your classmates and the members of the Valley.  Shake some hands, learn some names, and make some new friends.  If your experience is anything like mine has been in the Scottish Rite, in ten years time, you'll realize you met most of your current best friends for the first time that weekend you went through the Scottish Rite Valley of Danville."
