Sir Knights, we did not have a fundraising project this year and this is something we need to do. The Holy Land Pilgrimage is a Great program and worthy of supporting. We need to plan for the future and fund this project.
Drill team practice will be starting again soon on Monday nights 6:30pm-8pm. We will be working on a new Grand Encampment drill. Please join us on Monday nights. If we can get enough Sir Knights we would like to take both a C class and D team to Indianapolis for the 68th Triennial August 18th. With the Triennial just a few hours away I would encourage you and your ladies to Experience this event. Hotel and meal information can be found on the Grand Enc. Website or contact our recorder or myself.
Sir Knights, it has been my pleasure to serve as your Commander. I would like to say thank you for allowing me to serve as Eminent Commander again for this great Commandery. Please show your support for the next Commander and officers. Sir Knights with your help OUR commandery can be even better.
Stephen E Roth PC, DDC
Happy New Year. I hope you all had an enjoyable Holiday Season. And I wish you a joyous and Prosperous New Year.
The start of the New Year means the start of the Inspection Season. Sir Knights, Findlay Commandery will be inspected in the Order of the Temple this year. We have a new candidate who is excited to be a knight. We also have the privilege of having the Right Eminent Grand Commander, Terry Wymer, visiting our Commandery. Please, Sir Knights, help support your Commandery and attend our Inspection on January 27th. I do plan to shake things up this year. We will start at 3pm with the Full Form Opening then move into the Order of the Temple and finish the day with the Banquet around 5:30pm. As always, we need sir knights to help from the lines. Please, Sir Knights, come out and support your Commandery and meet the REGC. I am planning to keep the momentum rolling with the Full Form Red Cross and Malta, which we will walk through in the coming months. Stay Tuned.
Practice dates for the Inspection will be announced at our regular meetings so please attend.
The 1st division inspections are:
Findlay January 27th 3pm
Lima Shawnee Februaray 3rd 2pm
Defiance February 17th 3pm
Bryan March 17th 3pm

Our meetings are the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays each month with a carry-in dinner on the first meeting of each month. Please, Sir Knights support your Commandery and attend when you can. WE need you.
