|Findlay Masonic Bodies|
I am honored to be your Illustrious Master for the coming year. This is a title steeped in history and is not to be taken literally. I’m not particularly “illustrious” , and I’m certainly no one’s “Master”. We all serve the same “Master”, and He is the Creator of All.
I am grateful for these Companions who have consented to be your elected officers for 21-22: Illustrious Master-Rick Eakin; Deputy Master–Tom DeFrieze; Principal Conductor of the Work-John Sponsler; Treasurer–Tim Roth; Recorder-Dave Roth; Captain of the Guard-Tom DeFrieze; Conductor of Council-Steve Horton; Steward-Hugh Boland; Chaplain-Jason Pontious. As we close out a very dysfunctional year, we eagerly look forward to a more "normal" Cryptic year. What will this look like?
In short we will: Portray all three degrees (Royal Master, Select Master, Super-Excellent Master); Fill vacancies in our cast lists with Findlay Companions; Visit Inspections within our Arch; attend and support 2nd Arch events; Support the Diabetic Kids Fund in a visible manner; Have a successful annual inspection; Host at least one social event open to all Findlay Masonic members and families; Support Blue Lodge, Chapter, and Commandery.
All Companions will be receiving a direct mail letter later this summer with all the important dates for the year, including instructions for setting up a Grandview account online (freemason.com then click “member portal” then “sign up). If you would like to receive information via “Dial My Calls”, register here https://www.findlaymason.org/email.html. If it’s been a while since you’ve attended a Council meeting, please do this year. (We promise to NOT put you in a pro-tem spot unless you would like to).
Enjoy your summer! I look forward to seeing you September 7th.
