Findlay Council had its first stated meeting for the cryptic in September. The major issue at the meeting was the Council bylaws, in particular, the subject of annual dues. At the annual session of the Grand Council last year, legislation was passed to increase the per capita charged to the local Council. Per Capita will increase to $18.00 per member. Our current dues are $25.00 per member; with the per capita increase we will be left with $7.00 per member. Our Council currently has 103 members: This leaves our Council with $721.00 dollars left after paying the annual per capita to Grand Council. In light of this, the Companions voted at the September meeting to increase dues charged by Findlay Council. A letter detailing this and any other changes to the bylaws will be mailed to the membership. At the December meeting the Council will take a vote on this issue. Furthermore we have upcoming events scheduled for this fall:
1-Annual Council, Kalahari, Sandusky, Oct. 2-4
2-Findlay Council Inspection in SuperX Degree, Findlay Nov. 22 at 7:00pm, refreshments afterwards
3-Most Illustrious Grand Master’s Reception, Findlay, Hilton Garden Inn 5:30 social, 6:30pm dinner, Dec. 3rd
4-Awards Night, Findlay Masonic Bodies, Findlay Complex, 6:30pm Jan.4th 2023
In Conclusion, I hope all of you have a fun Halloween, Happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. Keep warm and stay safe.
