Rites of Summer 2018

The Summer Workshop for the Scottish Rite Orient of North Carolina is coming up quickly (next weekend), August 24-25. We hope you’ll find the time to come join us.

Below is the agenda for the event. I think you’ll agree that it will be a weekend of fun, fellowship, and learning. You’ll have a great opportunity to hear some fabulous speakers, share time with friends and family, and just have an enjoyable Scottish Rite experience.

The Valley of Winston-Salem is hosting the event, and they’ll need to know how many attendees will be present in order to arrange for enough food. Let your Valley Secretary know your plans so that he can forward them to the folks in Winston-Salem. We’re already down to the last week; so don’t wait (if you want to eat).

Come to join us and be a part of a really enjoyable Scottish Rite gathering!

The Rites of Summer: Dog Days Edition II

Scottish Rite Orient of North Carolina Summer Meeting

August 24-25, 2018

The Masonic Center of Winston-Salem

4537 Country Club Rd., Winston Salem

Merriam-Webster defines Dog Days as the hot sultry period between early July and early September, marked by a period of stagnation or inactivity caused by the heat of the season.

The Orient of North Carolina Summer Leadership Conference is an exception. You’re invited to defy the dictionary and find rejuvenation with brethren and their families from across the state. We promise refreshing presentations, cool new ideas, and no hot air.
