Program 2018 Allied Masonic Degrees In-Gathering

"Not as big as the D. C. Masonic Week held in Alexandria, Virginia….but we strive to present quality ritual and have a lot of fun

AMD Brothers,

With the Grand York Rite Sessions moving out of Bakersfield, Western Council No. 41 is still going to hold the California Allied Masonic Degrees Ingathering at the Bakersfield Masonic Temple.

Please Note!

The In-Gathering is a tiled Allied Masonic Degree event… will need your currant dues card.

To participate or view any of the degrees you will need to be registered.

Side-liners: members who have had any of the degrees previously conferred upon them will be admitted as “side-liners" providing they produce evidence of the conferral at the registration table to be given a pass.  

Important Notice !!!!

Two very important issues concerning the 

2018 AMD Ingathering:

1.  Due to a scheduling conflict with the Bakersfield Valley Scottish Rite, the owners of the Bakersfield Masonic Temple, Western Council No. 41 was required to reschedule the Ingathering to June 9, 2018.  

2.  The 2018 Ingathering Degree Committee was informed that the Scarlet Cord degrees are strictly controlled by the Grand Council of Allied Masonic Degree of the USA; and that according to a constitution revision adopted in February of 2017 a degree fee of $50 must be transmitted to the Grand Secretary prior to all Scarlet Card degree conferrals.*
