SPRING REUNION 2017
The Lubbock Valley Scottish Rite held the 2017 Spring Reunion on March 31 & April 1, 2017. The Valley initiated four new members: Matthew Reynolds, Chris Romero, William Tidwell, and Justin Jernigan. In addition, the Valley has continued to improve the event experience for candidates.
The Valley would also like to express gratitude to Roland Martin of Emma Lodge (Ralls, Texas). Roland Martin was the most successful top-line signer of the event and his name was submitted to the Supreme Council for recognition.

For those that have not participated, the new atmosphere and scheduling
has been a success.
On the evening of March 31, 2017, the Lubbock Valley Scottish Rite Knights of Saint Andrew hosted a Knights and Ladies Social Hour at the close of the first day of festivities. The new social hour was intended to provide the Knights of Saint Andrew and their spouses with time to relax after a day of work, while also allowing candidates to interact with Valley members. The event featured live music, traditional Mexican food, and fellowship.
In 2016, the Lubbock Valley Scottish Rite committed to being a leader in the Orient of Texas and the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. In addition, the Lubbock Valley Scottish Rite eclipsed the benchmarks of the preceding decade and now has more active members than in the past. This year the Lubbock Valley Scottish Rite is attempting to capitalize on those gains and sustain active membership, while also recruiting new members.
