Back in Action

It's been a while since my last post - I have wanted to log on & comment on a few things here & there, but just didn't get around to it. I contemplated having the blog go "black" until the new year in memory of my father but that seemed like a cop out so I am back.

I have been busy Masonically with Scottish Rite, Royal Arch, Templar & Lodge activities. Last month, I received a "Blue Hat" - Dedicated Service Award from the Valley of Syracuse, AASR and was very pleased to have my wife - Marian, son - Conor, and my mother, Betty present for the presentation. Earlier this month, I attended the holiday party for Central City Commandery No. 25, Knights Templar along with members from my son's DeMolay Chapter, Trinity. I was very proud when Conor and his DeMolay Brother, Shontay presented "The Ceremony of Light" for the very first time. He seems to have a knack for Ritual work and also likes it. I was appointed the "Captain of the Host" for Charles H. Platt Chapter No. 247, Royal Arch Masons for the ensuing year so I have have alot of new Ritual to learn myself.

I have some Chancellor Robert R Livingston Masonic Library news to reveal in my next post so stay tuned...
