A Templar Weekend

Saturday I had the honor of conferring the entire Order of the Temple as Eminent Commander upon several new Sir Knights. Along with myself, my Generalisimmo and a Commander from Northern Idaho performed the 5th Libation.

In the Order of the Red Cross, I am the High Priest and, in the Order of Malta, I am the Captain General or Marshall, depending on if another Sir Knight is there or not. Last fall I had done the 5th Libation, but today was the first time that I conferred the Order of the Temple in its entirety and I'm glad I have that down now. This weekend was interesting as some of my officers and cast members are officers of the Grand Lodge, which was doing a Cornerstone dedication the same day so we had to move casts around to ensure we had all the parts covered, but the Sir Knights performed admirably, and I thank each of them for their hard work.

Today my Commandery held its annual Easter Observance. I again had David Triplett as my speaker and no surprise he gave an excellent presentation. I'd also like to thank Lorna Lowe, the Royal Grand Matron of the Grand Court of Idaho, Order of the Amaranth, for playing the piano. I had another great turnout by the Jobies and the DeMolay. After we cleaned up the room, a few of us went to a local brewery.

Now I'm ready for Spring Break and some relaxation.
