Join a Committee this Summer
Event date: May 18, 2017 to June 18, 2017
Young or old. Rookie or veteran. The Valley of Boston provides ways to get involved in the rite and give back to your brothers. One of the most obvious ways is to engage yourself in one of the various parts of a degree day. You can be under the spotlight as an actor or running that light on the production crew. Many men choose to become an officer in one of the four bodies or other groups like the Consistory Guard or Knights of St. Andrew. However, there are two groups of men that often work behind the scenes and do some of the most important work in the Valley: the Family Life and Membership Committees!
The Family Life Committee, chaired by Bro. Michael Durocher, is comprised of some of the most dedicated people in the valley. They are constantly striving to plan a wide variety of events throughout the calendar year. Whether it's a classic event like Canobie Lake Park or daring to do something new like Kayaking down the Charles, Family Life does a splendid job of offering that mix of tried and true vs. fresh and exciting. It may seem hard to top past events like the Boston Symphony Orchestra or the Harlem Globetrotters, but this committee is always looking for those willing to plan something great.
During our Masonic journeys, we have all heard that "membership is the lifeblood of the organization." That is why we put such faith in the hard working men of the Membership Committee. Their efforts being primarily behind the scenes, these masons are always crafting new ways to reach out to their blue lodge brethren and show them the value of Scottish Rite. This can be a tricky process at times, but it never slows down our dedicated masons. Even as you read this, Chairman Bro. Terry Griffith and his team are researching and implementing new ways to reach out. Their task can seem challenging enough, but they are certainly up to it.
If you would like to get involved with one of these great committees, or even just want to offer your opinions or encouragement, send them a note! You can reach out to Michael Durocher for Family Life Committee and Terry Griffith for the Membership Committee.
