Oneonta Council 87 Trestleboard 2019-2020
I would like to try something new this year as we have new companions.
As a type of mentor program I would like to have the new companions select an officers part to study before the meeting and sit with that officer during the opening and closing to get a better feel of how each chair works. A different part each month would really give them a feel for the parts and hopefully encourage participation in the future.
We will also need someone to fill in for the Captain of the Guard position for Jan., Feb., and March as Harris will not be with us those months.
Please let me know if anyone has an idea for programs that would interest you.
I will do my best to uphold the tradition of good ritual as Master and ask everyone to practice your parts to be ready for our first meeting.
I. James Meek, Master
