Our website now has a collection of pages dedicated to the history of our Valley.
We have a page for each subordinate body, listing all of their past presiding officers, with links to biographical and other data of interest (where available). There are also pages listing all of the recipients of the Arthur M. Brown 33° Meritorious Service Awards, the recipients of the 33°, a listing of class honorees, and some of our old directories in PDF format. More pages will eventually be added with other interesting material.
You can access all of the pages from the main Valley History page, or from the link in the navigation panel in the left margin.
