The 157th Grand Convocation is now completed. From all reports it was a great success. There was dancing in the aisles and at the Grand First Principals banquet.
You have elected your officers to lead this Grand Chapter for 2015/16. To those elected and appointed our sincere congratulations. Now together we move forward.
A challenge was put forth to increase the membership by 10% minimum, during this term. Also a request for each member in this Grand Justification to dig deep into your pocket by making a donation of a toonie to assist our Medical research and Scholarship and Bursary fund was made.
Tickets for the Purple Dolphin amethyst were distributed to the Grand Superintendents of each District. We are humbled that more are already being requested. This draw will take place at the 2016 Grand First Principals Banquet. All proceeds are to our Charities.
The Grand Council would like to thank all those who assisted a very worthy cause by purchasing tickets on the exquisite baskets prepared by the Grand Council ladies. What a surprise it was for John Schaeffer and his Lady Carol as benefactors for the museum.
We have a team in place that can and will promote, assist, council, advise, restore, any Chapter unable to manage its own affairs by providing assistance or guidance. Your Grand Superintendent is your liaison to all facets of Grand Chapter.
The Grand Chapter web site is totally underutilised; Your District Grand Superintendent is responsible for a District web site coordinator who has access to post on the site. It is not nor ever has been the Grand Chapter web masters duty to fulfil this task.
We are looking forward to a substantial increase in membership in which we can all be proud. Your Lodges are waiting for you.
