In our ongoing attempt to remain in some form of contact with one another during the pandemic, the Valley of Barrie hosted monthly Zoom Meetings. These virtual meetings were held on the second Wednesday of each month. For the year of 2023, we plan to continue hosting these Zoom Meetings on the following dates: February 8th, May 10th, August 2nd, October 11th and December 13th 2023.
The meetings are open to all members of our Valley and we encourage you to embrace the opportunity to meet using this technology. If you belong to the Scottish Rite, but not a member of the Valley of Barrie, and would like to be invited to our Zoom meetings, please submit an Application Form.
The committee chaired by Cam Goodman selects a variety of topics and speakers for the benefit of our members. We find it as a great opportunity to stay in touch – and actually see each other, even though not in person! – and to discuss a variety of topics and witness some very interesting presentations. Thanks to our Grand Secretary, Jim Anderson, the Valley has our own Zoom account, so all that you will have to do to access the meeting is click on the link which will be sent to each member via email prior to the meeting.
If you haven’t used Zoom before, it’s really quite simple and it is a tool worth using to our advantage and benefit. If you need help getting started, please check out the Unofficial User Guide that we have created for you.
We think you will find these meetings both educational and entertaining, so please mark the meeting dates in your calendars now. We look forward to ‘seeing’ you!
