Great evening at the June Scottish Rite Lodge Dinner! We began with a College World Series tailgate party, followed by presentations and Knighting four new Knights of St. Andrew. . .
The Knights of St. Andrew was formed in the Valley of Omaha in 2001 to engage 32° "Black Hat" Scottish Rite Masons. The Knights of St. Andrew welcomed three new members at a knighting ceremony on Saturday, February 11th. . .
Riding the success of the KSA Gathering hosted in Omaha this past May, the Knights of St. Andrew were invited to the Valley of Topeka, Kansas to put on the 29th Degree and conduct a Knighting ceremony.
The Knights of St. Andrew (KSA) are a black hat organization in the Scottish Rite, offering 32° “black hat” Scottish Rite Masons an opportunity to get involved in leadership, meet members, and in turn, get known themselves. The Orient of Nebraska hosted the 3rd Biennial Gathering of the Knights of St. Andrew this past May 20-21, 2016 at the Omaha Downtown DoubleTree hotel. . . .
Omaha KSA Venerable Master David Meinzer recognized Past Venerable Master Don Kavalec for his leadership, presenting a pewter Scottish quaich at the May KSA business meeting. . .
The Valley of Lincoln hosted the annual Robert Burns Dinner, celebrating Scotland's national poet and Freemason. Seventy-five guests enjoyed bagpipe music, entertainment, a great dinner, and of course, freshly prepared haggis. Additionally, silent auction items raised about $1,000 for the RiteCare Speech and Language Clinic at UNL's Barkley Memorial Center.
This year's KSA Membership dinner was held on Friday, January 8, 2016. Eddie's Catering provided an excellent buffet dinner of baked caprese chicken . . .
