Washington Chapter No. 29

Trestle board 2019

Companions;

The Companions of Washington Chapter No. 29 are very proud of the progress made over the last few years. We have gone from hoping 9 Companions arrive to open Chapter each night, to typically 9-10 of our own Companions to open. The ritual and floor work are very good at this time and done without any books! Chapter has gone from meeting on one night each month to now we meet two nights.

At this time we have 5 more Candidates to take The Holy Royal Arch degree scheduled in May to add to our Chapter. With more petitions to be balloted waiting in the wings. The Chapter performed the Most Excellent Master degree in October 2018 with our own Companions, which has been the first degree performed in about 10-15 years. The next goal for Chapter is to be able to perform all of the degrees with our own Companions. We seem to be on way for this to happen. We would like to return the help Oxford Chapter No. 254 has always given us in the past with our degrees!

Finally, we need to keep our due diligence on going to promote and encourage other Brothers to join our ranks in Royal Arch Masonry here at Washington Chapter No. 29.

With fervency and zeal,
Rusty Perkins
High Priest
