Abbott Scholarship is Available
January 01, 2015 to April 01, 2015
DEADLINE IS MARCH 31
The scholarship season has begun! As your young students apply for college or continue with their higher education, the bills for next year creep closer and closer. Scottish Rite is once again opening up the Abbott Scholarship for you or your children. Named after Leon M. Abbott, Sovereign Grand Commander from 1921 to 1932, this scholarship is open to anyone who meets one of these three criteria:
A Scottish Rite Mason of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction.
A child of a Scottish Rite Mason of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction.
A member of DeMolay, Rainbow or Jobs Daughters in the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction.
Eligible students can find an application online here or on the website. Completed applications are due to the Valley Secretary by Tuesday, March 31. Since 1951, the Abbott Scholarship has helped students with more than $3 million across the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction.
As every Scottish Rite member is also a Master Mason, another great place to look for masonic scholarships for you and yours is your local Lodge or Grand Lodge.
Signing Up for FEMS
January 10, 2015 to May 02, 2015
As our society continues to progress into the technology filled age, Scottish Rite is taking steps to follow the curve in a variety of ways. The fall of 2012 was met with the introduction of the new website and weekly newsletters to better inform our members about everything happening within the Valley and Scottish Rite.
2014 brought the Valley of Boston a new online event registration system to use for our various events. The Fraternal Event Registration System (FEMS) will allow members to register and pay for the events they want to attend in a more streamlined process. As with any new thing in our lives, from riding a bike to driving a car, growing pains do accompany the acclimation process.
To make yourself familiar with FEMS when registering for future events, please take the time to sign up with the system. A tutorial has been made to help with the registration process. Contact Webmaster David Abbott for any questions you may have. He is more than happy to help!
Dyslexia 5K Run/Walk
March 19, 2015 to April 12, 2015
Last week we highlighted the Dinner & Silent & Live Auction for the Children’s Dyslexia Center: Boston North. This week we want to highlight another great opportunity for you to get involved and raise money for this important cause.
Several Dyslexia Walks have been planned across the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction over the next few months. What is a Dyslexia Walk? It is a 5K (3.1 miles) walk/run event that benefits these centers. You can raise money through sponsors and lace up your sneakers for a great day of brotherhood and service.
What should you expect at one of these 5Ks? All participants will enjoy a safe running route, commemorative T-shirts, entertainment along the route, fundraising rewards and a post-run celebration. This wonderful event will not only help the children you’re running for, but you as well when you consider the workout you’ll get!
You can find out more about Dyslexia Walks info and times on their website, or contact the organizers directly at 781-862-8518. Happy running!
