HAPPY HOLIDAYS from the speech-language pathologists at the Scottish Rite Childhood Speech and Language Center! We are having another wonderful Fall and Winter season at the Scottish Rite Clinic. We have had some exciting changes in our clinic this fall. This year we are fortunate to have Sara Frederick helping to cover our contract with Friends School of Baltimore. She saw students at Friends two years ago and is excited to be back. We are thrilled to have Sara on board!

We’d like to wish Sarah Spicer congratulations on her wedding and wish her best of luck with her new life in South Carolina! We will miss working with her, but we know she belongs with her new husband, Sean Jacobs. Sarah has been working at our clinic since summer of 2015 and we are so grateful for all the wonderful work she has done for the past 3 years.

We would also like to thank Miriam Mandel for helping the clients of the Scottish Rite Childhood Speech and Language Center for the past five years, starting as an intern in the summer of 2013. Miriam is now working for Baltimore County Public Schools and with the preschool-age population.

In September, we held our annual Basket Bingo to support the Charitable Fund. The families and staff enjoyed the activities and food, and we were able to raise money to help support the important work we do in the clinic. Thank you to all the individuals who attended this event and contributed to its success! We are so grateful for all the generous donations that will benefit the children of our clinic and directly assist them with their communication needs.

Our annual holiday party will take place in December. This event is always well-attended and enjoyed by the clients of our clinic and their families. The children love the raffles, crafts, refreshments, and activities.

As the year comes to a close and we enter 2019, we would like to take this opportunity to thank each of the Scottish Rite Masons for your support and generosity this past year. We wish you and your families an enjoyable holiday season and a happy and healthy new year!
