We had a wonderful event at the Kansas City Scottish Rite last night! HUNDREDS of members and guests filled the beautifully restored Grand Ballroom for the opening of the time capsule from the original Kansas City Scottish Rite Temple. The event was attended by many Freemasons, community leaders, and dignitaries. See below for FOUR VIDEOS – 1.) a news clip from the Kansas City Star 2.) a news clip from Fox 4 News Kansas City 3.) A news clip from KCTV5 4.) a video filmed by one of the staff members.
Join us for this historic occasion as we open the time capsule from our original Kansas City Scottish Rite Temple. Scottish Rite Members may also take part in a discussion of VMAP from 4:30 to 6pm led by two well-known employees of the Supreme Council.

Out of the ashes, comes a chance to peer back into history through the lense of items contained in a time capsule.
