Hello Brother SKs,

The Lenten Fish Fries are now complete, I would like to thank all who helped out and participated this has been a busy time. I would like to give special thanks to the de-boners, the kitchen crew, the Thursday night set up crew, the bartenders, Faithful Captain Stan Schnell and Lady Delores, the ladies who baked cake pies and variety of deserts. PFN Dave Wemhoff and Lady Betty and PGK John Cochran for ticket sales. PFN Tom Morwick for keeping the orders straight and Brandon Bailo for help in cleaning and assisting with orders. We all could all take a lesson from Brandon being at the fish fry every week and helping were ever needed and did a great job.

The exemplification is the end of April, Candidates going up for 4th degree need to be read in so they can advance to the 4th degree of our order.  The exemplification will take place at the Holiday inn Tanglewood, 4468 Starkey Road S.
