More than two dozen were present at our annual Feast of Tishri dinner. We were also pleased to honor four Scottish Rite Scholarship Foundation of Washington winners as our guests.
Our Venerable Master, Steve Harris 32o presented background on Feast of Tishri, its origin and meaning.
Mark Quenneville 32o KCCH, introduced our very own G. Winton Smith 33o, President of the Foundation who explaned the Foundation's impressive charter. Each undergraduate awardee received $2500 for this school year and some students may be eligable for the same amount next year.
Together, Mark and Winton presented each student with a scholarship certificate and gave testimonials on each of them from their impressive references.
