Ten Sir Knights and Ladies gathered at Faithful Navigator Bob Jones’s home for the first meeting of the Fraternal Year for Assembly 2701. The Faithful Navigator began the meeting with a prayer and the remainder of the meeting was dedicated to friendship and fraternalism. Everyone went home with a full stomach (thanks to everyone for helping out with the food) and the memory of an enjoyable time spent with friends. I believe the fraternalism aspect of the 4th Degree is especially important and all Assembly 2701 members should be aware that there is a social aspect to each meeting. Regular meetings are usually more formal but we’ve always kept fraternalism in focus by going to dinner (or having it catered) after the meeting and this is a tradition that will continue under my leadership.
