Message from the Commander in Chief

Welcome to the brand new website of The Valley of Utica – Yahnundahsis Bodies, Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite. I and the other Presiding Officers of the Valley, hope both our members and visitors find the site, informative, interesting, and easy to use. It is meant to be a useful tool for information on all our upcoming Valley events, Scottish Rite activities and the latest news from Supreme Council – Northern Masonic Jurisdiction.

Under the Calendar icon you will find not only the Valley calendar of events, but also that of our Masonic Fraternity affiliates that have supplied us with information to share. The Gallery will hold an archive of pictures from our functions and the Publication icon will include the most current issue of News and Views as well as the issues for the past year. Our Links will take you to Masonic related websites of interest.

A website for the Valley has been talked about for several years but never completed. Much gratitude and thanks must go to our webmaster Bro. Vaughn T. Combs, 32°. He has put untold hours, dedication and talent into making the site a reality for all to use and enjoy. Please visit the site often as it will be kept up to date with the most current information. As we begin a new year for the Yahnundahsis Bodies AASR, we also join in celebration of the Supreme Council theme of “200 Years of Brotherhood.” Indeed a time to honor not only the grand history and traditions of both Scottish Rite and the Valley of Utica but also a time to renew our bonds of fraternal fellowship, and look forward to new opportunities to improve communication and to work together to support our Scottish Rite Charities and the purpose of our great Masonic Fraternity.

I congratulate the new Presiding Officers and the line officers of each body on their installation. I look forward to working with all of you as the new Valley of Utica - Scottish Rite team and know through our combined efforts we will have a most successful year.

Wayne L. Allen, 32°, DSA
Commander in Chief
