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.

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.
