The Eastern Arkansas Scottish Rite Bodies held their Spring Two-Day Reunion on Friday and Saturday, March 6-7, 2020. The 95th Reunion was dedicated to the memory of Illustrious Johnnie Dean Savage, 33°, who died April 21, 2019. Bro. Johnnie was made a 32° Scottish Rite Mason over 59 years ago in Tennessee. He first affiliated with Little Rock in 1974, then moved his membership to the newly founded Bodies in West Memphis in 1975. He served exceptionally in many degrees, most recently the 4°, 11°, and 30°, but would always gladly fill gaps in others when needed. Bro. Johnnie will be fondly remembered for his leadership, kindness, strong work ethic, ever-present smile, and his example for all to emulate.
Thirteen degrees were conferred during this two-day period – 4°, 5°, 6°, 8°, 10°, 11°, 14°, 17°, 18°, 21°, 23°, 30° and 32°.
