Message from the High Priest


Greetings Companions:

Spring is here! Well, it is supposed to be here by the calendar. Fear not, it will warm up and we’ll need the bug spray, shorts and air conditioning soon.

Inspections went well. Thank you for your excellent work and your dedication to Willis Chapter. Thank you to MEC Donald Owens for the great direction during the degrees and to REC Ron Hart, Sr. for his support and guidance. Much appreciated!!!

As you know, we will begin meeting on the third Tuesday of the month. Our first Tuesday meeting is May 15th at 7:30 PM. We had the first reading of the Nomination Committee for 2018-2019 officers at our last stated meeting. Michael Miles is looking forward to a great year as High Priest. I’m sure with everyone’s help, Willis Chapter will continue to prosper and move forward under Mike’s leadership.

Companions, I trust you will enjoy the better weather and please plan to attend the next stated meeting on our new Tuesday meeting date this month.
