VALLEY OF AUGUSTA
On behalf of the officers and members of The Scottish Rite Bodies of Augusta, I extend to you greetings and best wishes.
The Augusta Scottish Rite is the smallest of the six valleys in Georgia. Though we are smaller in size, our fraternal and civic pride equals that of our larger sister Valleys. First of all, we take great pride in the quality and nobility of our membership. We enjoy the warm fraternal atmosphere of the local Masonic community and are serious in our constant efforts to promote and nurture it. We are very proud of the Augusta community and our association with it. We are extremely fortunate as to have the Augusta National Golf Course, (The site of the Masters Golf Tournament) for a neighbor. Each year we greet countless Masons from all over the world who visit in early April for the "big game". It is the family and home which men share that make them Brothers. We are family and our home is your home. To any and all Masons who may come this way, I say WELCOME!
