You are hereby and herewith given notice that the Portland Valley will be having our Annual Election of Officers at 7:00 o’clock pm on Tuesday May 1st, 2018.
All Members are requested to attend to determine the Leadership of the Valley for the ensuing Scottish Rite Masonic year.
The Bodies will be opening in short form for the purposes of holding elections for all the elected offices of each of the four Bodies followed by the joint Installation Ceremony for all four Bodies.
It is requested that all individuals running for election have their selections for their appointed officer lines available to present in advance, assuming the outcome of the elections will be in their favor.
To that end the Sovereign Grand Inspector General in Oregon, Illustrious Brother Gary W. Kuney, 33° Active, has issued the following edict regarding the process to be eligible to run for election to an Elected Office in the Portland Valley;
