Congratulations to all the Companions who participated in our Annual inspection on November 19th. We received a highly favorable report from Right Illustrious companion Michael Terry, 2nd Arch Inspector and Grand Conductor of Council, who inspected our Council. Our candidates were greatly impressed by the quality of the degree work they received. As your Illustrious Master, I am very proud of the hard work and dedication exhibited by the companions. Also the council school of instruction hosted by Findlay Council on November 16th was a success
