Did you previously receive the 29th Degree? I was told in my valley, it's a matter of paperwork. Not pomp and circumstance. The 29th given at our reunions suffices as the knighting ceremony. It's Interesting how other valleys do things.
Same as a 33rd.... They must become "associate members" with a KCCH replacing his white feather with a red one and a 33rd red,gold, and white feathers.They are relatively new in my valley as well. They do not wear kilts as well. They do a great job supporting the valley. Their main responsability at our meetings is food. They also help out in many different areas at the reunion. If you make KCCH you can no longer be KSA.
