COVID-19 UPDATE, As a Valley, we want to do all we can to keep everyone as safe as possible from the virus.  To that end, continue to wash your hands often, maintain social distance, stay home if you are symptomatic, and abide by your local city ordinances. ,

SICKNESS AND DISTRESS
In our Valley we have Brothers, their wives, and in some case their children suffering from disease, sickness, pain, or distress.  Let us than remember to daily lift up those around us.  Let us speak kindly, one to another, and let us continually treat each other as the Brothers of our Adoption that we define ourselves as.

 

"..They lived upon the level and parted upon the square..."

Please keep the following departed Brothers' families in your prayers,
Herbert Lee Coggin,
