Of­fi­cers ex­em­plify Sec­ond & Third de­gree

Stanstead Journal - - CROSSWORD - Knowl­ton

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.
