Read the latest Scottish Rite Mirror​​​ 

Dear Members,

It is with great regrets that I notify you of the closure of the Ladies Scottish Rite of the Valley of Norfolk.  We simply do not have the support necessary to carry on.

We have greatly enjoyed assisting the men in their endeavors and will still be available on an individual basis for future needs.  

We will be cleaning out our cabinets.  If anything there belongs to you, please contact me or Shirley White (at the Temple) to come and pick it up.

If anyone has any questions or concerns you may contact me or the secretary, Nancy Pennybacker.

Note: All members notified via email with contact information.

I presented this paper at a recent meeting of Norfolk Valley Scottish Rite. I detail the history and philosophy of Zoroastrianism and how it is an integral part of the 32nd degree. I also describes the meanings of many of the symbols depicted in this degree.

Feast of Tishri.jpg
Next Thursday, October 18th, Norfolk Valley will observe the Feast of Tishri.

UPDATE: There will NOT be a public program.

Dinner is at 6:15 PM and our Ladies of the Scottish Rite will be serving:
Pot Roast
Green Beans
Salad and

The cost is $8 per person, $16 a couple. PLEASE make reservations with Willie Salih by Monday, October 15th! The Ladies work hard to prepare our meals, and they need an accurate count before buying supplies. It is NOT fair to them for you to just show up and expect to eat. Show respect and make your reservations.

Our TILED meeting will begin at 7 PM. We will have a program on the origins of the DeMolay youth organization, as well as the Feast of Tishri presented by our own Brother Joel T. Bundy,  32° KCCH.

We are now into the Fall/Winter Season. The dress code is:
Green Blazer
White Oxford Shirt
Valley Tie (Black)
Black Pants
Scottish Rite Cap

Of course, jacket and tie are appropriate if you do not yet own a Green Blazer. But no polo shirts, Brethren.
It is my sad duty to report that Most Worshipful and Illustrious William Lee Holliday laid down his working tools on Wednesday, July 11th, 2018.

Bill Holliday was a mentor, a friend, and a leader in Virginia Masonry.

A memorial service will be held at Granby Street Masonic Temple on Sunday, August 19th. More details to follow.

Danville Valley hosts the 2018 Scottish Rite Conference September 21st and 22nd. The dress code will be the same as in previous years, but we will NOT wear caps at any event.
  • Valley Polos and khakis all day Friday.
  • Green Blazer, dress shirt and Valley tie, and black pants for Friday Dinner and all day Saturday.
  • Dark business suit for Saturday Dinner.
