- "Exploring the Degrees" Program.
The program will begin with a survey of the Lodge and Council degrees, exploring such questions as where they came from, who wrote them, and how they have changed through the centuries.
Then there will be a discussion of the philosophy of the degrees, contrasting Scottish Rite and Blue Lodge degrees, and tying them in to the core values of the Rite: Reverence for God, Integrity, Justice, Toleration, Devotion to Country, and Service to Humanity.
A collation will follow.
