Greetings Sir Knights,
When I started writing this edition of newsletter, I realized it will be the last for this Commandery year. How fast it has gone.
The Full Form Opening and Order of the Temple inspection will be done by the time this is distributed. It was conducted on March 30th. It was inspected by the Very Eminent Deputy Grand Commander Robert Hager. I believe it went well for all who were present. Thanks to all the officers and Sir Knights for their participation.
Next up is the continuation of conducting the Order of the Red Cross and Order of Malta. This is a yearly requirement but necessary to stay familiar with them.
Events that are upcoming:
Inspection for Defiance 30 on April 6th starting at 3pm.
CTA meetings: May 18th at Bryan 5pm with dinner at 6pm., July 14th location TBA for picnic at 4pm followed by business meeting at 5pm, Sept. 21st at Lima for School of Instruction starting at 4pm followed by business meeting at 5pm ending with dinner at 6pm.
Yorkrite festival on May 11th Registration starts at 7:30am with degree at 8:30 ending around 8pm. There is lunch available for a donation and Dinner with reservation for $12. This year the Super Excellent Master degree will be presented. There are plans for the Order of the Temple on the following Saturday, May 18th with light breakfast. Registration starts at 8am. More information to be published.
There are many events happening within the Findlay Masonic Bodies. I believe it is our duty as Knights Templar to help them whenever and where ever we can. Without them we cannot survive.
In closing I thank all for their support. It has been a fun season and also a learning one.
Greetings Sir Knights,
The Holidays are over and I hope the time spent with family and friends was wonderful. But, now the time for Inspection season for all the bodies is here. The Commandery inspection is March 30, 2019. Being a first time Commander, we will be doing The Order of Temple.
We will begin our inspection day at 2:00pm with the Full Form Opening followed with a short break. After the break, we will proceed with The Order Of The Temple. Dinner is at 5:30pm. Your ladies are invited for the day. Entertainment is being planned while the degree is being conducted. Reservations are always recommended.
The Grand Commander of Ohio, SK Trent, and his entourage will also be attending. We should be honored his choosing Findlay Commandery for one of his visits.
I would encourage all Sir Knights to attend. It would be great if we could use our Sir Knights as escorts and guards for our inspection. The Commandery can help with needed regalia but we need to know in advance for the regalia needed.
Practice schedule will be published after confirmation with Complex manager and heads of other bodies. Notices will be distributed.
A reminder that our meetings are the 2nd and 4th Wednesday. The first meeting is a pot luck dinner with the meats provided. Families are welcome.
