Dayton, OH, will be the site of the next Mid-Winter Gathering, held on February 17, 2018 at the Dayton Masonic Center, 525 W. Riverview Ave., Dayton, OH 45405. We will start at 8:00 a.m. with registration, coffee, and doughnuts. At 9:00 a.m. the 13° will be portrayed by the Valley of Columbus, and the Valley of Cincinnati will exemplify the 28°. The 13° and 28° are not Core Value degrees, so this date presents another opportunity to fill up your Scottish Rite passport. After lunch there will be a presentation by the Order of DeMolay, followed by the 20°, Master ad Vitam, conferred by the Valley of Dayton. This degree highlights integrity and devotion to country, and the setting and story make this one of the most popular degrees in Scottish Rite Freemasonry. Registration at 8:00 a.m.; 13° at 9:00 a.m., followed by the 28°, lunch, DeMolay, and 20°.
