Formation Degree ceremony (2nd Degree) at St Bridget


Our Council is hosting a Formation Degree ceremony (2nd Degree) next Wednesday February 22, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.  This is an excellent opportunity for any of you that have not obtained your 2nd Degree to do so.  Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested. Candidates should arrive by 6:30 p.m.  Dress for the ceremony is coat and tie.  Also, any brothers that would like to attend or assist with set up or the ceremony, please let my myself or GK Rick Witty know so we will have some idea how many brothers we will have in attendance.

Fraternally, Ron Coombs

Chancellor Council 5476
