The 135th “One Nation Under GOD” Session was held at the Scottish Rite Temple, Wichita, Kansas on April 19-21, 2011.

Our Theme:
May each of us, with God’s help, live the Obligation, and be a living example of His love and truth.

Our Aim:
For each member to live our Obligation, in their daily lives; demonstrating in word and action its principles; shining as bright stars to humanity, that others will have a desire to be associated with an order with high ideals and teachings. (From “Let There Be Light”, Beulah Malone, PGM of Oklahoma)

Our Watch-words:
Dream * Believe * Achieve

Dare to Dream, Whether big or small, Believe in yourself, and you can Achieve all.
