Well, it has been a long three days, but I enjoyed my time at the Grand Sessions of the Grand York Rite of Idaho. Thursday we conferred the chair degrees and honorary bodies to those Companions and Sir Knights eligible and deserving. In each of these bodies I was appointed to the following positions:
Registrar for Idaho Chapter of the Sovereign Order of Knights Preceptor
Thrice Illustrious Junior Warden of the Idaho Order of the Silver Trowel
Prelate for Idaho Priory #13 of the Knights of the York Cross of Honor
Friday was the Joint Sessions with the Most Illustrious Grand Master presiding with the Most Excellent Grand High Priest and Right Eminent Grand Commander sitting with him in the Grand East. They kept me busy serving as Distinguished Guests Chairman. The Grand Council of Cryptic Masons of Idaho opened in the afternoon where I was appointed Illustrious Grand Captain of the Guard for the ensuing year. Friday night Tri-Valley College #178 of the York Rite Sovereign College of North America held its annual stated meeting where I was elected and installed as Deputy Governor.
With Saturday morning, the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Idaho convened. I was honored to be elected and installed as the Right Excellent Grand King. In the afternoon, the Grand Commandery of Knights Templar of Idaho reconvened. The new Right Eminent Grand Commander appointed me as the Eminent Grand Sword Bearer and Editor of the Idaho Supplement of the Knights Templar magazine. I look forward to the coming year.
