Please welcome our two newest members, Fred Dubrick and Howard Culligan. We look forward to seeing them and their wives at the June Social BBQ and other events.
The Exemplification saw forty-eight new members join the Fourth. It was a well attended event.
For the gift basket that we donate annually, Jean and I took a different approach this year and canvassed local businesses to make donations, instead of just buying some the basket contents. We received $270 worth of gift certificates for the basket. The basket’s theme was “Spend a day in Stratford” and included breakfast at Features, chocolates from Rheo Thompson, lunch at the Keystone Alley Cafe, an afternoon boat tour from Avon Boat Rentals and dinner at Foster’s Inn. If you are near any of these merchants in the near future be sure to thank them on behalf of the 4th Degree. We will be sending formal thank you letters to our sponsors shortly.
