On November 20, 2015 Brother Kenny Swisher 32° graciously volunteered to take charge
of getting the Scottish Rite stain glass and clock from the Masonic Temple to the Scottish Rite Center
at 1416 S. Santa Fe. Both items arrived without a scratch!
The beautiful stain glass was a gift presented to the building members by the Dedication Class of 1927.
Interestingly, the window was never installed. It was left stored in a shipping crate until the late 1970’s.
At that time it was carefully removed from storage, delicately cleaned and prepared for back light display.
The glass was crafted in Germany by some very talented artists.
The large majestic Grand Father clock was a gift presented by the New Temple Class of 1924.
Research on the clock and glass was done by the late Scottish Rite member, Sam Wygal.
Kenny’s job did not end with moving the stain glass and clock.
He also built the frame around the glass, installed the back lights and installed the wrought iron railing.
Carol Winn stained the wood after Kenny got everything else done. It is a very impressive sight.
Kenny you are a true asset to the Scottish Rite Masons.
