By the time you read this our Annual Inspection will have taken place on March 29. I thank all of our officers, appointees, and Companions who were able to assist.
There are a couple of schedule changes to announce. Our portrayal of the Super-Excellent has been moved from April to May 24 at 7:00pm. Within the 2nd Arch, the CELL Al l–Day Course scheduled for May 7 is postponed to a date to be determined.
Our Annual Meeting and election of officers will be May 3rd and installation will be June 7th, both being our regular meeting nights.
The Northwest Ohio York Rite Festival will resume this year May 14. Chapter and Council degrees will be portrayed along with the Knights Templar orders. Our own Illustrious Companion Ken Chamberlain is the class Namesake this year... a well deserved honor Ken!
We have received permission from ODOT to have a fund-raising effort at the 1-75 northbound rest area that is south of Findlay over Memorial Day Weekend. All donations from coffee, soft drinks, and snacks will benefit the Grand Council Diabetic Kids Fund. We will be staffing reduced hours from past years, and will be mostly a Findlay Council effort, partially due to the next event... read on!
The 2nd Arch is sponsoring an Arch-wide fundraiser for the Diabetic Kids Fund on Saturday June 4 at the Celina Moose Lodge 5:00pm to 10:00pm. This will have food, fun, and great fellowship. Open to the public too! Let’s really support this effort.
July 12 will be an Arch Reunion and School of Instruction at Kenton #65 at 7:00pm. The Summer Arch picnic will be Saturday July 30 at St. Marys at 4:00pm (note new date).
The 2nd Arch will be in Findlay with the honor of hosting the Grand Reception for the Most Illustrious Grand Master of the Grand Council of Royal and Select Masons of Ohio, 2nd Arch’s own Mike Terry. The reception will be December 3, 2022 in Findlay. Details forthcoming.
I wish to thank this year’s officers and Companions who helped me in a multitude of ways through the year. It was an honor to serve Findlay Council #50. We look forward to seeing our Council Companions at these upcoming events!
