Visit with Albert Pike

Albert Pike paid a visit to the Minneapolis Valley of the Scottish Rite last night on the 200th anniversary of his birth. That's me with him (aka Terry Rybarczk).

The other photo shows W.M. Carl Iliff (Hope Lodge in Glencoe) and P.M. Ross Arneson (Sibley Lodge in Winthrop) along with dozens of guests who attended the Pike lecture and enjoy pizza and pop after.

Ed Perlman, aka "The Black Crow", reports that 15 petitions for Scottish Rite were received at the social event last night. What a great result!

I am proud to be a Scottish Rite Mason. I find that it enhances my experience in the Blue Lodge. I look forward to visiting the class, which starts next Thursday, January 7.
