Sir Knights, 

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.

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!


Joseph Wallach
Illustrious Master

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. 

Please contact your Secretary/Recorder at or issue your dues payment at 

Sincerely and fraternally,

Joseph K. Dongo, KYCH
Secretary / Recorder

Book of the Month

The Freemason’s Gift
A Christmas and New Year’s Offering
by John Boyle

The editors of this volume have attempted to furnish a cluster from the field of thought and feeling cultivated under the broad sheen of our cherished institutions, that shall be agreeable to the taste of the fraternity. 

Found within this book is a plethora of essays by various authors such as Ancient Mysteries; Woman's Love; Moses at the Burning Bush; Secrets of Masonry; Mirtharessa; Three Pillars of Masonry; Masonry in 1776; Four Cardinal Virtues; and many others.

This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the original. Due to its age, it may contain imperfections such as marks, notations, marginalia, and flawed pages. 

Because we believe this work is culturally important, we have made it available as part of our commitment to protecting, preserving, and promoting the world's literature in affordable, high quality, modern editions that are true to the original work.
