Language Clinic Dedication


Your Scottish Rite Speech & Language Charity invites you to the opening and dedication of “Oregon Scottish Rite of Free Masonry Speech & Language Clinic”, in partnership with Portland State University.

This clinic will provide services to over 2,000 young children each year and is in the process of developing a tele-therapy program, which will bring help to children in cities throughout the state.

It has taken the Scottish Rite Speech & Language Charity board several years of hard work to create the opportunity for funding and details necessary for the establishment of this working partnership between the University and Scottish Rite.

Come join us in celebrating this auspicious event and remember if someone asks you what does Scottish Rite do?  You can point with pride to how we provide free help to children with communication issues at the Scottish Rite of Free Masonry Speech & Language Clinic at Portland State University.

Rite Movie Night!
Tuesday, May 15th at 7:00 pm the Portland Valley Scottish Rite will have a movie night in the Ballroom.

The feature for the evening will be the full length documentary film 33 & Beyond: The Royal Art of Freemasonry.

In 2010, Writer and Director Johnny Royal, embarked on a 7 year journey to document and tell the story of American Freemasonry.

This is an excellent new film produced by an amazing young Brother including interviews with some of the current great minds in the Craft; it is certainly not to be missed.


Doors open at 6:00 pm for a social.
The feature will start at 7:00 pm and the run time is 2 hours and 11 minutes. .

This event is open to all Masons and their Families and Friends. As with all our events this is not open to the general public.
