As hard as it may seem, summer is over and your Commandery is ready to start another year.
The drill team has been practicing every Monday evening during the summer in preparation for the drill competition at Grand Commandery October 7th. I’d like to see a good turnout of Findlay Sir Knights at the Grand Session on October 6th.
Crowne Plaza Columbus North 6500 Doubletree Ave.
Sir Knights, as I mentioned in the summer news, your Commandery meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesday, with a family potluck dinner before the 1st meeting starting at 6:30pm. The meetings start at 7:30pm. All Sir Knights are encouraged to attend each and every meeting. Only the officers are required to wear their uniforms at the 2nd monthly meeting.
Some dates to remember for October thru December:
• Meeting Dates: Oct 11, Oct. 25, Nov. 8, Nov. 22, (Also Thanksgiving Eve), Dec. 13, Dec. 27
• Grand Commandery October 6-7
• December 2 Reception for the Rt. Eminent Grand Commander Terry Wymer
• Practice dates for the Inspection January 27, 2018 will be announced later
Sir Knights, the inspection is Saturday, January 27, 2018. Please keep this date available and try to attend your inspection (with or without a uniform)
Our inspection will be full form Order of the Temple. With the permission of the next Grand Commander we will make some changes to the inspection day. 1st we will be starting at 2pm with the Full Form opening, then move on to Order of the Temple, which will be followed by the Banquet. As I mentioned in a previous newsletter our Inspecting officer for January 27 will be Grand Master of the Grand Encampment.
I look forward to a good Commandery year, we have several new Knights in the officers line, and on a personal note, At the grand Commandery session (if all goes as planned) I will be installed as the next Deputy Division Commander for the 1st Division. This next year will be challenging but enjoyable with your help and support.
IN HOC SIGNO VINCES; By this sign thou shalt conquer. By remembering this Motto we will conguer and have a great year. Please support your commandery this year. “WE NEED YOU “
Your fifth time Eminent Commander
