The Joplin Scottish Rite app was developed as an intra-valley communication tool that is easy to use and feature rich. Similar to other popular social media apps you can join conversations, send messages to other members directly, share photographs, view a calendar of events, receive reminders for upcoming events, and much more. However this app is limited to verified members of the Scottish Rite and the Valley of Joplin in particular.
The Scottish Rite is an Appended Body of Freemasonry; The Worlds oldest and largest Fraternity. Membership is open to any Master Mason who is in good standing and seeks further knowledge into the craft and further light into the principles that guide every Freemason. Like all Masonic branches, the Scottish Rite does not discriminate on the basis of Race or Religion.
The Valley of Joplin was established in 1904 and is a constituent body of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry and operates under the authority of The Supreme Council, 33, A.A.S.R. of Freemasonry, S.J., USA.
