In our ongoing attempt to remain in some form of contact with one another, the Valley of Barrie will be hosting monthly Zoom Meetings. These virtual meetings will be held on the second Wednesday of each month until the lockdown has ended (or perhaps longer if they are well received).
A committee chaired by Cam Goodman will be selecting a variety of topics and speakers for the benefit of our members. It will be 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.
These meetings will be open to all Scottish Rite members, but in particular we hope that the members of our Valley will 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.
We think you will find these meetings both educational and entertaining, so please keep the second Wednesday of each month open. We look forward to ‘seeing’ you!
