"Scottish Rite has been breath of fresh air to my Masonic career. It is a respite from the long days of labouring in the quarry, a place to take stock of higher and more noble truths with Brothers of a like mind"
"In the Scottish Rite, I have found meaningful friendships with a diverse group of men, along with ritual that helps exemplify and further explain the degrees of ancient Craft Masonry, Perhaps most importantly, I have found a place and means to becoming a better man on a daily basis - not better than other men, but better than the man I was the day before."
"It has been the best of my Masonic experiences, I have friends from all over the state, people I would never have met or spent time with..... I now call them my Brothers! In a time when personal social circles shrink, and virtual worlds expand.Scottish Rite Masonry still offers what soon will be lost to ordinary men."
"The Scottish Rite teaches its lessons on stage in full theatrical allegory. Being a theater geek myself, I fell in love with their degree presentation immediately. It has also allowed me to meet other like-minded men from throughout the region and state who also seek to improve their communities by first improving themselves. I am honored to call these men my brothers."
"Masonry has been an important part of my life since joining. The Scottish Rite has influenced my life in the same ways only ten fold. Many of my closest friends are Scottish Rite Masons whom I may not have known had I not joined the Consistory. "
