A message to our members
We at the Santa Barbara Scottish Rite hope and pray this message finds each of you well and healthy. As you are all aware, because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have had to suspend much of the activities that we generally do. Among them are all degree practices, ceremony practice, stated meetings and club activities. The clinic has stopped seeing one on one interaction, instead the clinicians are reaching out by doing the same thing over the phone and using the internet for some of the educational material.
Colleen, Floyd and Maurice will be at the Scottish Rite office only on Fridays from 9:00 am to 11 - 11:30 am. Colleen will be here to answer any questions you may have. The phone number is (805) 965-6100.
The clinicians will be in the fourth floor clinic phoning the children and their parents with their lessons from Monday through Thursday 9:00 to 3:00 pm.
We will resume normal activities when the authorities will permit us. Thank you for understanding and remember to use the protocols in washing hands often and stay healthy.Maurice Sourmany
