William E. Carlton
Preeminent Governor of Illinois York Rite College No. 15 for 2012-2013
The meeting dates and places are not officially set in stone, except for the January meeting which is our mandatory conferral of the degree of Knight of York and our annual meeting in May 2014. We will perform a second conferral of the Knight of York during my term. I would like everyone to review the dates to see if there are any possible conflicts with any of the major bodies. I am not going to reschedule meetings around lodge nights, etc. I have tried to keep these dates on 5th weeks in an attempt to avoid conflicts with regular lodge meetings, etc.
I would also encourage everyone to consider submitting a Sir Knight's name for consideration at this meeting or the subsequent, so we can vote on him to become a member of the college. The college is a service organization to Freemasonry in our area. Obviously, only those who are working hard in their symbolic lodges, chapters, councils, and/or commanderies, and who are members of all of these organisations will be considered. As we have discussed in the past, we need to expand our membership and bring in younger active brothers, so that we can do the things we need to be doing. The recommendation form is available at the Sovereign York Rite College of North America's website.
