Orlando Council No. 5 Welcomes The District Deputy Grand Illustrious Master

At a stated assembly of Orlando Council No. 5 on Thursday, October the 8th, We had a nice turnout of Royal and Select Masters to greet our District Deputy.  His message was well received and the fellowship was wonderful.  Our own Illustrious Master Ed Smallwood provided the dinner for the evening as a thank you for all the work put in by the officers & members of the Council.  We had ribeye steaks, Cheesy potatoes, baked beans, dinner rolls and pecan pie with ice cream for dessert.  All the companions were loosening belts and buttons during the meeting.  If you are a member of the Orlando York Rite Bodies and haven’t been attending, things are changing and you are missing out!  We meet on the 2nd & 4th Thursday every month with a good hot dinner at 6:30 followed by the meeting at 7:30.  KIMG0003

Passing of Comp. Richard I. Fox

Erik AndersenWe have just received word from Judy Fox that her husband Richard I. Fox  went to receive his reward and is now in the presence of the Great Architect.

Brother, Companion and Sir Knight Fox was a true and loyal Mason and a dedicated York Rite Mason.  Many of us knew him as “Foxy”.  We will miss him in our Ranks.

Information as to memorial services will be forthcoming.  Let us keep his wife Judy and their family in our prayers.
