Greeting Sir Knights,

It looks like Reunion time again and your Knights of St. Andrew are ready to assist. We will be working with the new AV Tech Chairman, Gregg Hall and the degree directors to help you and the candidates have a great time enjoying our Rituals and lessons. Isn’t it a privilege to serve? Are you new to Scottish Rite and looking for a way to serve our Brethren and families? You can come to the Knights of St. Andrew’s next meeting April 7th at 7:00 pm at the SJSR Temple and see what we are all about and how you can participate.
After our Meeting April 7th, the KSA will be working with Friendship Lodge #210 and serving our Veterans at the Veterans Resource Fair April 11th. We will be cooking for over 600 Vets and their families. There are three teams; two will be at the Masonic center at 8:00 am on the 11th and a team at the county fair. This event is bringing awareness and resources for those vets who need help with medical needs, homelessness, job opportunities and more. If you would like to show your support, visit the fair and the fiesta hall on April 11th.
On September 5th, the KSA invites you to join us at the Scottish Highland games in Pleasanton. If you like great food and drink, Knights and swords, this event will not disappoint. We will know the pricing after April 1st and will update in our May article. Please RSVP ASAP so we can hopefully bring any cost down with a large group discount. We will carpool from the SJSR Temple. The KSA already has three large vehicles offering rides. A rented bus is still TBD. Come join us! 
The KSA is also in contact with our Oakland and Sacramento KSA groups and I will update you all in the May article as to when visits are scheduled. Reaching out to these groups will help us in serving you better by sharing ideas and or borrowing others ideas on how to better serve our Valley.
The Knights of St. Andrew thank you for your support. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact me.

Your Chief Knight - Jason Barnett
