Rory Justin Byers 32° Knight Commander Court of Honor, a resident of Murphy, North Carolina, has been named Orient IT (Information Technology) Chairman.

Brother Rory is a Member & Leader in the Valley of Asheville, and supports the newest NC Valley in Franklin.  The Valley of Franklin was formed to provide travel relief for the members of the NC Scottish Rite that reside in the 7 country region of the southwest mountains and were driving up to two hours one-way to Asheville to participate in the Rite.

Brother Rory will help the Orient & Valleys incorporate the latest internet technology to keep our members active and in touch with each other going forward.  For example, one new internet initiative mentioned at the workshop could be for every member of the NC orient to receive email birthday cards, email get well cards and email sympathy cards in addition to US mail cards from your home Valley Secretary.

Another excellent example is Brother Rory’s handiwork in creating an Orient Facebook Page … Orient of NC Scottish Rite .

From all of your brothers across the Old North State, thank you Brother Byers, for accepting this very important challenge and we look forward to working with you in the future.
