Omaha KSA Venerable Master David Meinzer presents a Scottish quaich to past Venerable Master Don Kavalec for his leadership, including planning the upcoming KSA Gathering.
David Meinzer recognized “the outstanding service, determination, true grit, effort, and leadership, our past Venerable Master has shown.” Don Kavalec has gone “above and beyond” as Venerable Master of KSA, said Meinzer, and has been deeply involved in planning the 2016 KSA Gathering. Don has been “a positive force, encouraging healthy change and growth in the KSA and the Scottish Rite.” Our life is healthier and richer, David said, when we build relationships with such individuals.
Don said this means a lot to him. “I don’t know where I would be in Scottish Rite Masonry without the KSA,” he said. This organization he said, introduced him to Scottish Rite Masonry and he has been extremely grateful. The KSA has been a big part of his life.
