Greetings Sir Knights!

  Well, it’s Reunion time again and the KSA is ready! We look forward to serving you in any capacity that is needed to have this Reunion make an important impression on our new candidates. Let’s all show these Brothers what Scottish Rite is all about!
  On September 1st, the KSA performed an elevation Knighting ceremony called “Knight of the first order”. This ceremony was very impressive to those being Knighted and a round of applause to Sir Martin Maxey, Sir Mike Sloan and Sir Brandon Duenas for performing this for us. Congratulations to TJ Jackson, Jack Holmes, Tom Tefft, John Unger, Will Montoya, Ric Bartlett and Roger Harpainter for being selected for this honor. These Brothers have been serving our KSA consistently and it is appreciated. We had a great time with friends and families who joined us for food and this Honorable event. 
On September 5th, the KSA along with brethren, friends and family took a journey to the past and attended the 150th Scottish Highland games in Pleasanton! What a great time and plenty to do and see.  Scottish Clans were gathered, Knights in armor were battling, athlete’s competed, Historical reenactments captivated, traditional music was chiming and good food and drink were enjoyed. This event will hopefully be an annual one that all of you can see for yourselves. The KSA would like to thank the Valley for your support for this event!
  On November 21st, please join the KSA for a Cabaret themed dinner and Magic show featuring “Hank the Magician”! Due to the sophistication of some of the tricks, this show is for adults only. Join us for great music, fine dining and a glimpse into the mystical realm of illusion. Tickets are $25. Per person, please RSVP with myself or Hank. November 21st 6:30 pm social, 7:00 pm dinner, 8:00 pm show. Held at our Scottish Rite temple.
Look for some surprises from the KSA before years end. We are having a great time serving you this year! Carry on Sir Knights!
