Next meeting

Thursday evening 28 June, 6:00 (gather), 7:00 (dine): Annual Donnybrook, at Buffalo Creek Brewing, located at 360 Historical Lane, in Long Grove. Dinner, toasts, meeting, and election of candidate nominees. Cousins only.

We will be in the private room in the upper level of the brewery. There is an elevator for those of us who have been well worn or who otherwise simply like riding in elevators.

We will again dine on barbecue from Smoking T's. Final selections have not been made but expect brisket, pulled pork, ribs and perhaps another item as well as the traditional sides. Those who joined us in December will recall that the barbecue that Smoking T's provides is first rate. Dinner will include a pint of Cousin Mike Marr's delicious beer. And in a return to days past, each companion will receive one of the official Council cigars; there are not one but two comfortable patios as well as a gazebo in which to ignite the cigars.

All of this as well as an evening of relaxation in the bosom of Cousinly regard will be available for $35.00. Reservations are strictly required and must be made on or before June 24. Also, if you make a reservation and do not cancel it by June 27th, you will be responsible for the dinner charge.

Dress is business casual. Let's remember that we are in a public place and in the business home of our Brother and Cousin. Properly dressed gentlemen in good order make a more powerful statement for the Craft than all the billboards and advertisements in the world. Slovenly dress and boorish behaviour have an equally powerful effect.

The program will consist of the usual toasts as well as a short presentation suitable to the evening.

Get your nominations for this fall's candidates in to the Scribe in order that we may vote on them at our next meeting and confer the degrees upon them in October. This form must be completed and submitted to me by email, on or before June 17. This will allow time to circularize any suggestions to the Cousins. We will not receive any suggestions at the event. You must be present to vote but you may submit objections to the Scribe prior to the evening, by telephone, email or whatever other form you find convenient.
