I hope that all of you and your families had a wonderful Holiday season and a Happy New Year! The past Holiday season was an active time for your Council. On November 2nd, we had our annual inspection in the Super Excellent Master degree.
The Companions and officers performed a first rate job and conferred the degree on three candidates. The Most Illustrious Grand Master Michael Terry was in attendance and he was impressed by the degree work presented by your Council. I wish to extend a heartfelt thanks to all those who made the inspection the success it was. Also, in December was the M.I.G.M. in Findlay. Thank you to all those who participated and attended the reception. The reception was a great success and everyone had a wonderful time. Furthermore, at the December meetings, the council voted to raise the annual dues. None of us wanted to do this, but, with per capita being raised to $18.00 per member, we had no choice. Our current dues is $25,00 per member , with per capita increasing to $18.00 per member, we are left at $7.00 per member. The Council has 103 members! We cannot survive on $721.00 a year. The dues increase will go into effect this upcoming annual meeting in June 2023. If you are having financial problems please contact the Council.
