News and Information


Toparch John Eichler extends Greetings to all Sciots in Illinois Pyramid #1, and also around the world.
The Pyramid now meets on the third Monday of each month (Post Covid 19) at Medinah Temple in Addison, IL. Dinner at 7:00 at the IHOP on Lake St in Addison and Meeting at 8:00 at Medinah. Notice, we have moved the meeting time back to 8:00 PM. We are meeting in the Fire Unit room, or the Oasis if no one else is there. The last few months we met at IHOP in Addison on Lake St. That was a nice change of pace and we got a great dinner, as well. An email to all will let everyone know. That place is working out fine. Looks like in the future we will be eating at IHOP and then migrating to Medinah Temple for our 8:00 meeting. That way it will be tiled.

Illinois Pyramid #1

Many years ago and through the efforts of several dedicated Sciots from Sciots Tract #11, an effort was made to bring Sciotry from California into the great State of Illinois. From those efforts we ended up with several Sciots in Illinois as dues paying members of Sciots Tract #11 but were separated by thousands of miles and became inactive.

During the spring and summer months of 2001, a prime goal of the Membership Chairman was to recontact those forgotten Sciots within Illinois and finish the job of making Illinois Pyramid #1.

Through the efforts of a few wonderful Illinois Masons and Sciots the Membership Chairman traveled to Chicago in September 2002 and was honored to meet with James E. Durbin, the Grand Master of Illinois. The Sciot history and objectives were presented to the Grand Master who was supportive of our cause.
