Last night, we had five brothers move from their 1st degree standing to 2nd degree status. We welcome them and thank them for their participation in this important milestone in their development into full Knighthood, which is in the 3rd degree. Please join me in congratulating brothers, Antonello, Joseph, Rome, John and Ernie in attaining their 2nd degrees!

I would also like to thank brothers Rommel, John, Sam, Rolly and Zeus for joining me to make our support members part of the large crowd of Knights who gathered to welcome the 16 Knights from various councils who attended the ceremony. Brothers, if you have not taken your 2nd yet and wish to do so, please let me know so that I can schedule you for the next one.

And now, brothers of the 2nd degree, onward to full Knighthood!
