Great Day for 22nd annual RiteCare Classic Golf Benefit!

In 1998, the Scottish Rite golf outing began as a fun event for members, with extra money going to RiteCare. Somewhere along the way, it became a fundraiser in its own right, and was rebranded as the RiteCare Classic. This year, the RiteCare Classic, held on June 12th at Pacific Springs Golf Club, grossed over $20,000 for speech and language services. . .

Lincoln Hosts 2nd Statewide RiteCare Meeting

Several years ago, Charles V. Sederstrom, Jr., 33°, Sovereign Grand Inspector General in Nebraska, began working to improve the unity between Nebraska's RiteCare clinics. He noticed that the clinics in Hastings, Lincoln, Omaha, and the newest clinic in Kearney were operating semi-independently of one another. Thus began a tradition of annual meetings between the state's RiteCare clinicians and Nebraska Scottish Rite Masons. . .
