As early as 1864 (the Grand Consistory of Macon) was a flourishing Scottish Rite Body known as the Lodge of Perfection. In 1868 it was known as Bezabel Consistory No. 4.
The present Lodge of Perfection was personally chartered in 1882 by Albert Pike, and the present activity in Macon dates from March, 1917 when the Chapter of Rose Croix was chartered. The Council of Knight Kadosh and Macon Consistory were chartered March, 1919. Illustrious Brother Albert Pike opened a Lodge of Perfection meeting on May 3, 1882 and the name was changed to Zerbal Lodge No. 3. Brother Pike again visited Zerbal Lodge No. 3 on November 23, 1883. The records for Zerbal Lodge No. 3, now called Macon Lodge of Perfection, began on May 18, 1919 and runs to the present day.

RITECARE SCOTTISH RITE CHILDHOOD LANGUAGE PROGRAM (SRCLP)
In the early 1950s in Colorado, the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States initiated a program to help children with speech and language disorders. The results obtained from this program led to the establishment of RiteCare Scottish Rite Childhood Language Program (SRCLP) clinics to provide diagnostic evaluation and treatment of speech and language disorders, as well as learning disabilities.
Today, there are SRCLP clinics, centers, and special programs operating or planned for children and therapists located throughout the United States. Each facility is staffed by speech-language pathologists or other trained personnel. Through the support of Scottish Rite members, these clinics, centers, and programs continue to increase. The value of this philanthropy has long been apparent. Tens of thousands of youngsters across the United States have been helped significantly. With the good work of dedicated clinicians and parents, the Scottish Rite has achieved successes that could only be imagined a few years back. Children who might have remained educationally behind for a lifetime can now talk, read, and lead productive lives.
As a rule, the SRCLP Clinics accept preschool children who have difficulty speaking or understanding the spoken word or school-age children who have difficulty learning to read. Some centers also offer literacy training for adults. Inquiries on age groups and program offerings in specific areas should be addressed to the director of the local Scottish Rite facility. Equally important, all services are available regardless of race, creed, or the family’s inability to pay. While all children in need are eligible for available SRCLP treatment, please consult with your local facility for specific financial information.
