Congratulations to all Companions who participated in our portrayal of the Super Excellent Master Degree on November 20. We received a very positive report from Illustrious Companion J. Michael Lenhart, 2nd Arch Adjutant who reviewed our work.
We will be preparing for our inspection at our January and February meetings. We will portray the Select Master degree on Monday, February 26, 2018. Please review your part and be ready to rehearse on January 2 and February 6.
Looking ahead, the Northwest Ohio York Rite Festival will be Saturday May 12, 2018 at the Findlay Masonic Complex. This is a great time for every Master Mason who is not yet a member of Chapter, Council, or Commandery to receive the degrees/orders on the same day.
We will once again provide refreshments to travelers at the 1-75 rest area south of Findlay over Memorial Day weekend to help fund the Diabetic Kids Fund, which supports the Diabetic Kid’s Camp at Camp Berry in August.
Have a prosperous and safe 2018.
