Patty and I arrived in the District of Columbia yesterday for the Scottish Rite Biennial Conference. We were invited to dinner my Minnesota's Sovereign Grand Inspector General, Jerry B. Oliver, and his wife Peg. Also along were National Sojourners National President, RWB Fred B. Vihovde and his wife Carol, and a relatively new Scottish Rite Mason, Keith Reierson and his wife Karen.
SGIG Jerry ran into the Reiersons at the House of the Temple where they were taking the tour. The Reiersons were in town for the funeral of Karen's grandfather, who was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetary.
The schedule of events here looks very interesting, and Patty and I are very excited to be here!
