Officers exemplify Second & Third degree
OnFeb.12/15 there was a delightful gathering of members of Knowlton #28 and several Odd Fellows to witness the commendable explication of the Second and Third degree for Candidate Maureen Dillon from Unity #8. However prior to this, as usual, there was another scrumptious lunch for all to enjoy, supplied by Knowlton and dessert by Unity #8. After lunch time to get Meeting underway and then the Degrees. This had been planned prior to Knowlton losing their Hall to fire and all their paraphernalia that goes with it in - particular Frank’s adorable Night Cap. Ed Copping, choreographer for the March-in, set up his projector and got music ready for Georges to lead all Officers in and seated-very impressive.
Knowlton Odd Fellows are well-known for their hard work in all they do, and this was no exception. For once I got to sit and appreciate the performance.
Congratulations to all the members. Roger was well-cared for in “the Good Samaritan, and Eugene took pity on him and bound his wounds and saw he was cared for at the Inn. We watched as Maureen was escorted about through the desert and then resting on a hillside under a tree. Finally all Instruction was completed and she was welcomed and congratulated by all present as a Third Degree member. We hope she enjoys all the privileges this could bring her way.
Going places and meeting so many like members and making friends who will recognize you everywhere OF meet, and elsewhere. Unity thanked Knowlton for doing this and for all who attended in support of Maureen. Congratulations to all.
