Our first official Chapter Convocation for 2017 will be on Thursday, March 9th. I encourage every elected and appointed officer of Eureka Chapter No. 7, Royal Arch Masons, to secure from the Recorder or PHP Jerry Favor a copy of our ritual and begin to memorize your speaking parts and floor work. Many of the officers this year are from Blue Lodges that are known throughout the district for their exemplary ritual work, so the bar has been set pretty high as far as expectations for your performance.
Our Spring Festival in March with the Chapter and Council degrees being conferred on the morning of Saturday, March 11th, and the orders of the Temple being conferred on the morning of Saturday, March 18th. I urge each of you to contact Harry Eisenburg for a part. Not only will this help your learning and understanding of the Chapter, but a well rehearsed performance will more deeply impress upon the candidates the lessons conferred by the Degrees.
I would entertain any ideas for a fundraiser for our charity RARA (Royal Arch Research Assistance). If you are unfamiliar with this charity, please go to http://flgyr.org/rara/ and become familiar with it. Some ideas are a bowling tournament as golf seems to be popular with the Blue Lodge and Shrine, we should offer something different. Please send me your ideas!
I will be continuing my educational series with each meeting, but I also welcome any education or interesting articles regarding our craft that we can share and learn from.
We should strive for excellence. There are awards we can win, but most importantly, the more proficient we are, the new companions will feel the energy and want to become a contributing member of our great fraternity!
Sincerely & Fraternally,
Companion C. Craig Frazier
Excellent High Priest
