All men enjoy fun and frolic… the D.O.K.K. provides, the best in what is known as the “Eighth Order.” The D.O.K.K. ritual teaches valuable lessons of life. The scene exemplifying the motto, “Lift up the Fallen”, is rated one of the finest ritualistic parts ever written. Ceremonials of initiation consist of seven scenes, highly dramatic, presented with excellent effect from a regular lodge room floor, stage or large auditorium. Local organizations are known as Temples and are found throughout the United States and Canada. Temples draw their membership from among many Knights of Pythias lodges; bringing Pythians into closer contact and co-operative activity. There is one Temple in Tennessee. El Teva Temple is located in Rockwood Tennessee and meets 4 times a year. Contact Information : Emory Morris
