Site Notice: Upgraded site now online! Click for details.

The new SCGYR site is now live.

Here are some new features available now that improve on the old site:

  • Updated look and feel
  • Responsive design making it phone and tablet friendly
  • WordPress is used as the backend so others can eventually get involved to easily help to maintain the content
  • Contact Forms to securely contact the Grand Secretary/Recorder and the Webmaster
  • Added a link to the original site for historical purposes:
  • Forms and Reports are now online
  • The button links on the Grand Body pages are now active providing access to lists of Officers, Committees, etc.

Please understand that the original site is over 400 pages, so while the site is online, it is not complete. Conversion will continue until completed.

Some of what remains to be updated:

  • Constituent Body pages
  • Chair Degrees and Appendant Body pages
  • History page for historical and educational articles for which I will be soliciting soon
  • Create a contact form to directly contact the Grand Heads
  • Create an online form for secretaries/recorders to fill out to provide update information
  • and much more....

There is still a lot to complete here!

I thank you for your patience with this process.

Jim Barr, KYGCH
