School of Instruction for the Chapter

Roya Arch MasonsThe following week (8/7/2014) there will be a school of instruction for the Chapter.

Companion Mike Hartman,  District Instructor for the 5th District, will be assisting Companion Jerry Favor instructing this class.

They will be going over the opening ritual as well as the procedures and process we will have to know to confer the Chapter Degrees in September.  Remember we are going to have a different procedure than usual for this falls Festival.  We need to get organized now to be able to perform these Degrees in an efficient manner.  We have to worry about costumes and stage set props.

We will be using the dining room and the Lodge room to eliminate down time between the Degrees.  We have not done this before so we start organizing it now.  Companion Jerry will need lots of help.

Practice will begin a 7:00 PM.   The meeting for the organization for the festival will begin a 6:00 PM.

Remember that Companion Jerry still needs helpers for a stage crew.  If you cannot take part in the Degrees maybe you can come and help with the staging.  Part time help is always welcome.

Erik Andersen, P.H.P.

Greetings Companions

As you know the Companions have approved the organization of a Grand Chapter of Research at our last Grand Convocation.

It is very important for all interested parties to attend an organizational meeting of the Florida Grand Chapter of Research to be held this Saturday November 9th after of Official District 4 meeting in Plant City. There is a lot we have to do so as to petition for a Charter from the Grand Chapter. We must establish a slate of officers, dues, and other items.

Please come and support this effort it has been a long time in the making and there is now light at the end of the tunnel.

See you all there.

Daytona Beach School of Instruction

Saturday October 5th Daytona Beach York Rite Bodies held a School of Instruction at Ormond Beach Lodge for its members.

We started with breakfast at 8 am and meeting from 9 to 11 am.

R.E. Companion John Michael Harman and R.E. Companion Harry V. Eisenberg did an excellent job explaining the history of the York Rite degrees since the Entered Apprentice until the Knights Templars.

This is part of a project started by R.E.Comp. Hartman to bring Companions together and share further light on the York Rite.

Here are some photos of the event.

Festive Table Chapter Honoring R.E. Harry V. Eisenberg

On  Saturday, September 28th 2013, Eureka Chapter No. 7 had a Festive Table Chapter honoring R.E. Companion Harry V. Eisenberg, Master of the Third Veil, Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Florida.

We had a good attendance, although I think we could have made it better if more of our own attended.
