32nd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasonry, NMJ

32nd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasonry, NMJ The Scottish Rite believes that each man should act in civil life according to his individual judgment and the dictates of his conscience.
The Scottish Rite in each country is governed by a Supreme Council. There is no international governing body — each Supreme Council in each country is sovereign unto itself. In the U.S. there are two Supreme Councils. The Northern Masonic Jurisdiction (NMJ) is headquartered in Lexington, Massachusetts, and the Southern Jurisdiction (SJ) in Washington, DC. The Northern Masonic Jurisdiction refers to state organizations as Councils of Deliberation and the local bodies are organized into Valleys.

The recent Scottish Rite: AASR Valley of Grand Rapids reunion in honor of SGC David A. Glattly 33° had a lot of energy and excitement packed into the weekend, all centered around celebrating their members. The Valley’s degree teams initiated one of the largest classes the Valley has seen in some time. Cmdr. Glattly was also able to spend some time with the candidates talking about Scottish Rite, how to get the most out of their membership, and answering questions from the group.

At the evening’s reception honoring the new members as well as recognizing current members’ service, Cmdr. Glattly awarded the Medal for Masonic Service to Brother Alan Nelson (Marquette) and the Commander’s Medal for Distinguished Service to Ill. Timothey Marshbanks (Detroit). “These men truly embody the values and virtues of being a Freemason and we are proud to have them among our ranks as Brothers of the Scottish Rite, NMJ.” stated Glattly.

Walter F. Wheeler (Deputy for Michigan) also presented several Valley awards including those to members attaining their Gold Passports and naming a new Deputy’s Representative to the Valley.

It was a remarkable and memorable day for the members of the Valley of Grand Rapids, Michigan Freemasonry, and the NMJ.
