Dear Brethren and Friends:
Good Morning and good Wednesday everyone. Yes, I know it's doing that (I'm not using the 's' word) again, but it's not going to be much and it's outta here before we'll know it.
But, the one good thing, the silver lining if you will, is that Spring is just around the corner. Yes, it is. I'm already in 'Spring Reunion mode' in the Scottish Rite office, the parts have all been sent out for both of the Reunion meetings, I'm already taking March dinner reservations, the notices for the Officer's Conference, the Memorial Service and even our Family Life event at the Riversharks are posted.
And another sure sign of Spring, petitions are coming into the office! Do we have one from your Candidate yet? There's still time, but, there's something you probably didn't know that I need to inform you of.
As you most likely know by now, our dinner reservation deadline had to be changed as the Temple's caterer wants our final dinner count 10 days before the meeting. Which means by the way, if you're coming to dinner on 3/21, I have to know by 3/11. Don't miss that! Because of this change, our petition deadline which WAS always the Friday before the beginning of the Reunion had to be changed too. So, for those of you thinking, "Okay, the Reunion begins on March 21st, so I have until, March 14th to get my friend's petition in, that's cool. I still have time." No, you don't! Because of the ten day notice to the caterer, the former one week away deadline, is now changed too! The deadline for Candidates for this Class is now, March 7th! Hear that? That's the amplified TICK, TICK, TICK of time slipping way. So, if you have a Candidate or a Brother who may develop into a Candidate, get it done TODAY!
Have a great day everyone and don't worry about that stuff tumbling out of the sky, it's not an all day thing.
