Fall Festival Cancellation

Harry V. EisenbergCompanions and Sir Knights,

Unfortunately due to technical problems, scheduling conflicts, unavailability of degree team members and minimal number of candidates we have decided the prudent thing to do is to cancel the Spring Festival. We will marshal our efforts for the Fall Festival with the same dates previously announced. Should candidates appear who do not want to wait until the fall, we can direct them to other districts for courtesy work or we may do a slow class throughout the year.

I am sorry for those of you who have already spent time and effort preparing for this class but we do not want to put on anything but our best work so as to give our new Companions the education they deserve.

Will you please spread the word among your individual bodies. Thanks.

Courteously and fraternally,

Harry Eisenberg
Degree Master District 5
