Most Illustrious Companion Michael A. Smith has just issued Edict 2021-2 which (1) cancels all in-person meetings until December 31, 2020; and (2) cancels all Inspections and SEM Reviews for this Cryptic year (2020-2021).
All inspections will instead be paper inspections of your books.
Office of the Right Eminent Grand Commander
The 2020-21 Cryptic year is upon us, in spite of the Grand Council session as a virtual meeting in the midst of all that has been, and may be in the future, we have the assurance of being in the everlasting care of the Great Architect of the Universe. As long as we practice our profession as Masons, we will not be alone or forsaken.
Council had its election of officers in September and will conduct the installation of officers at our October 6th meeting. The companions who have been elected to serve our Council are: Rick Eakin Illustrious Master; Steve Roth Deputy Master; John Sponsler Principal Conductor of the Work; Tom DeFrieze Captain of the Guard; Steve Horton Conductor of Council; Tim Roth Treasurer; Dave Roth Recorder; Jason Pontious Chaplain; Chuck Insley Steward; Bob Grandbois Guard.
We are planning a “typical” Cryptic year in spite of the uncertainty of future conditions. The Super Excellent Master degree scheduled for Friday, November 20th, as been postponed until a later date. Our annual inspection will be Friday April 23 2021 in the Select Master Degree. We will have a rehearsal schedule in March and April to prepare.
With the cancellation of the Diabetic Kids Camp fundraising at the I-75 rest area over Memorial Day weekend and cancellation of the DKC at Camp Wesley, there likely will be discussion at Arch and Council meetings about this year. We hope you will attend each first Tuesday of the month to assist with this very worthwhile task!
