To be nominated for, and then elected, to receive the 33rd Degree in Scottish Rite Masonry, a man must show proven leadership through dedicated service to not only the Scottish Rite, but  also to Freemasonry as a whole and their community.

The following men have shown this type of leadership throughout the years and have been honored with a White Cap.

The pictures represent those which can be found at our Masonic Center hanging in a place of honor.
