We are now on our way towards our Inspection. The next few weeks will be full of anticipation of the event. I think we all know that a 10 point minus starts at the beginning, with the rehearsals, not the date of the event. We must show up for all rehearsals properly prepared and listen to the instruction of the very capable senior officers we are so lucky to have as Brother Sir Knights. After all they have put in a considerable amount of work over many years to insure our place as a 10 point minus Commandery and have the knowledge and the expertise to guide us to that end this year.
We are the Stewards of this Historical Fraternity and as such we have a responsibility to our members presently, and those not yet knighted, to preserve the very honor & intent of our predecessors. We can accomplish this by dedication to our duties along with a vision of harmony and improvement to the benefit of the Commandery and the community at large.
Our already good work will be made even better if we all spend some time on learning the Tactics, studying for our Inspection and Review, and being ready for the rehearsals coming every Sunday in November. Remember the Instructors and your fellow Sir Knights deserve your best. Those new Officers for this year need to make sure that you have the proper materials for study. S.K. Richard Bernheart will be assisting us as our Instructor and needs to know earlier than later of your needs or concerns. Remember success is not an accident, it is a result of dedication, good planning and due diligence
It should be mentioned that it is my intention to repeat the Church Service at the Congregational Church in Northbridge this Year, and will be asking any and all of my Catholic Brother Sir Knights to attend with me at St Mary's in Milford as announced at the June meeting as well .
I can report that the success of the evening meals is progressing and I wish to thank all of those Sir Knights who have partaken and those that have helped clean-up afterwards. Also I would like to request that any officer who cannot for some reason attend a scheduled conclave to contact me personally that I might plan on an acceptable substitute.
To all other Sir Knights privy to this correspondence, you are welcome to support us with your presence and I encourage you to do so.
P.S. Remember that when we share our lives, we Righteously affect the souls of others.
With fond Fraternal greetings,
S.K. Mark A. Rossi
