Greeting Companions!

I hope that you all had a nice Holiday Seasons and am looking forward to a Happy New Year!

At the December 2018 meeting I had been elected to serve as the High Priest of Oneonta Chapter #277, for the ensuing year. I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve and am very excited as we have a great Chapter.

During my tenure as High Priest, I wanted to share the calendar of events that will be coming up. See the schedule below.

I would like to encourage you to bring your ideas to the February 11th meeting for the open discussion.

Three possible areas are:

  1. Increased Fellowship
  2. Community Involvement
  3. RAM Charity


Please go to the webpage that is maintained by RE Bruce Van Buren as that will have the calendar of events for the upcoming year.

Fraternally,
George Thompson, High Priest
thompgr at gmail.com (607) 829-6005

A reminder that YOU are needed at our convocations maybe to be that 9th that we need to officially open. Please come, have some fun and fellowship, learn some ritual, and make the chapter stronger. We need to visit other chapters.
