Christmas Observance Invitation

Commandery Banner

We extend an invitation for you and your Lady to attend our York Rite Knights Templar Christmas Observance — that time of year when we pause to rejoice in the “Reason for the Season.”

Our Observance this year will be on Thursday, December 19 at Eola Lodge on Grant Street in Orlando.  We will begin with a full dinner at 6:00 PM,  followed by our special program at 7:15 PM.

Dinner will include:
Turkey, Ham, Green Beans, Yams, Corn, Dressing, Salad, Rolls and a Variety of Homemade Pies

Knight Templar Officers will be in uniforms while other Knights can wear uniforms or business attire.  All guests can wear business attire or seasonal attire.

We request that you RSVP (so we can prepare the necessary food) no later than Monday, December 16 to Sir Knight Edward Smallwood, Commander Elect of Olivet Commandery No. 4, or the Recorder Sir Knight John B. Fletcher Jr.

This evening of dining, fellowship, and observance of Christmas will be one that you will want to be a part of while seeing old friends and making new acquaintances.  Please join us as Masons and members of Appendant Bodies for an observance of the “Reason for the Season”.

We are looking forward to seeing you Thursday, December 19, for the dinner beginning at 6:00 PM at Eola Lodge, 3200 East Grant Street, Orlando, FL 22806.

For Olivet Commandery,

S. K. Edward Smallwood, Commander-Elect
