Special convocations and additional events are held at the call of the
Eminent Commander. None is currently scheduled, save for our annual inspection on Saturday, 18 January 2014.
Our annual inspections are held in conjunction with those of St. Bernard
Commandery No. 35. Ours are "books-only" inspections.
Be advised that
St. Bernard Commandery has announced that their 2014 inspection (and
thus ours) will be "books-only". No orders nor floor work will be
performed at our 2014 inspection; no luncheon will be held, and no
programme will be provided for the ladies. Although the books are
available for review by all Sir Knights of our commandery, no guests nor
general membership are required to attend the 2014 inspection. The
commander, treasurer, and recorder will simply present our records to
the inspecting officer. This decision was made in response to the 2013 First Division inspection process.
