The Valley of Omaha celebrated the end of an era with the retirement of Curtis M. Edic, 33°, General Secretary after 16 years. Curt joined the Scottish Rite in 1975, intending to use the Scottish Rite as a springboard to get active in the Shrine. Along the way, he got involved in the Scottish Rite and has participated in one way or another ever since. . .
What began as a way to engage members has become an institution at the Omaha Valley Scottish Rite. The Valley hosted the 3rd annual awards dinner on Monday, December 21st, recognizing those who have made a significant contribution to the Valley over the past year as well as a few not-so-serious awards - the famous rubber chickens.
The Valley of Omaha Scottish Rite hosted the 263rd Reunion on November 19, 20, and 21st, welcoming 10 new Princes of the Royal Secret. The "Larry J. Zwart, 33° Memorial Class" revives the tradition of naming classes after departed Brethren who exemplified the finest spirit of service and leadership. . .
