Commander Dave Dumonceaux
Sir Knights all:
We are practicing our floor work for our inspection which will take place May 5th, 2018 at 10:00am. I believe that once we get the floor work down the rest should be relatively easy. We should have a couple of candidates for this year so degree work and orders will be again conferred in Fergus Falls. There are several One Day events coming up:
@ One Day to Chapter – Feb 3rd
@ One Day to Council – Feb 17th
@ One Day to Commandery – March 3rd
At the Grand Commandery level, many good discussions are being had regarding membership and the decline thereof. The inspection process is in the process of being evaluated and possible revamped to accommodate the smaller Commanderies or Commanderies that have few than needed Sir Knights participating.
Our Knights Temple Eye Foundation (KTEF)continues to do great work. It was established in 1955 by the Grand Encampment and has raised more than 142 million for research, education and patient care since that time. Over 23 Million has been awarded to researchers working in the fields of ophthalmology and opthalmologic genetics. This is our philanthropy and I would urge each Sir Knight to give whatever is possible to this wonderful program.
In closing I would like all to remember that every Christian Mason should be a Knights Templar. May the peace of the Risen Savior be with each one of you.
