FROM COMMANDERY No. 2
I want to thank all Sir Knights who were able to attend our Christmas Observance and Renewal of Knightly Vows ceremonies which took place via Zoom on Saturday, December 12th.
I want to thank all the Officers who helped out with the planning and execution. The event was well done on all levels! Kudos!
Wishing all Sir Knights, family and friends, a Christmas filled with joy and a prosperous New Year! Be safe and take care.
Harvey J Holcomb
FROM COUNCIL No. 1
We are living in interesting times. It has been five months since we came together in person to relish in Friendship and Brotherly Love. We may still be physically absent from one another, but we are still united and strong, although in a rather informal format, via electronic medium.
It is good to hear and see one another through these means but I look forward to the future when we can once again be among Brothers in person, in peace, and in harmony. Until that time arrives, be cautious, stay healthy, and do not hesitate to reach out to me.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
FROM CHAPTER No. 3
Thank you all who supported our Officers and our reelection to serve our Chapter for the ensuing Capitular year.
I wish to thank the Officers who have agreed to our Chapter next year. I am excited to continue to work with you in 2021, which we hope to be the time to reopen our building and welcome back all members to our functions and regular meetings at the Masonic Temple. It’s been too long!
Until then, may the Christmas season fill your home with joy, your heart with love, and your life with laughter.
Wishing all Companions, families, and friends, a very Merry Christmas and I look forward to seeing you in 2021. Happy New Year!

From the Secretary/Recorder Desk
Have you paid your 2020 dues?
The year is winding down and funds are tight in all three Bodies.
If your dues cards do NOT read "member in good standing ... through December 31, 2020", then you have fallen behind and now would be a good time to catch up.
Sincerely and fraternally,
Joseph K. Dongo, KYCH
Secretary / Recorder
