Every other year, the Supreme Council of the 33rd Degree, in special session, elects a number of Brothers from throughout the Southern Jurisdiction and acknowledges and recognizes them as dedicated workers in the vineyards of Freemasonry, who will consider this honor an opportunity and incentive for even greater service in the future.

This year, 6 Brothers in the Valley of San Jose have been selected to receive such Honors.  2 will have Conferred upon them the 33° White Hat and title of Inspector General Honorary. They are Brothers Chuck Cowden and Bud Ramsey. 4 will be Invested with the Red Hat and title of Knight Commander of the Court of Honor. They are Brothers Tom Bergevin, Martin Maxey, Tom Tefft and Hank Vlcek. The KCCH ceremony will take place at the Oakland Scottish Rite on Sept 16 at 4pm, followed by a Banquet at 6pm. Both are open to the public. If you would like to attend the Ceremony and/or Banquet, contact the Office for all the details and to make reservation.
