News from the Valley of Salem

Donald M. Moran named Deputy for Massachusetts

by Valley of Salem on 10/04/12

At this year's Annual Meeting in Cleveland, Ohio, the Deputy for Massachusetts, Ill? Donald G. Hicks, Jr. 33o stepped down from his position as Deputy Member at the close of the session.

Our very own, Ill. Donald M. Moran 33o has assumed this important role.

A Deputy of the Supreme Council serves as the Executive Officer for Scottish Rite within his state jurisdiction. There is always at least one Active Member in a state jurisdiction in addition to the Deputy Member. In Massachusetts, we have two Active Members in addition to the Deputy.

The other Active Member is Ill. Robert E. Godbout, Jr. 33o, Grand Master General of Ceremonies for the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction.

We all wish Brother Moran success in his new role.
