Greetings Sir Knights,
It has been a long year dealing with the pandemic and all that has been canceled or rescheduled. Some good news is that Commandries can now meet in person under certain guidelines. In fact, our Commandery has met at regular meeting days in the month of March. An email was sent to all email addresses that I have but, if anyone didn’t receive an email please get in touch with me to update your email address.
Some of the guidelines are wearing a mask, social distancing, signing in at the table at the dining room entrance, arrival no sooner that 10 minutes prior to meeting and leaving within 10 minutes after and no refreshments. Meetings are in green jackets, conducted in short form.
Our inspection for this year was rescheduled several times. A review of the records was all that was required this year. No other ceremony was required because I’m a repeating Commander.
April 14th meeting will be the Easter observance conducted by our Excellent Prelate. Meeting time is the same 7:30PM.
At this time, drill teams can meet but because of social distancing they cannot practice. Hopefully it will be announced later that there will be drill competition at the State Conclave in October. Drill competition has been cancelled for the Grand Encampment Triennial this August.
May is the month for election of officers. Sir Knights, please consider serving as an officer in our Commandery. We have several Knights that have served many years in the office line out of Honor and a sense of Duty. I’m sure they would welcome any Knight that would like to join the officer line of this fine Commandery.
So looking forward to seeing everyone. The more that participate the better the Commandery.
