Brethren, Valley of Moline’s new Knights of St. Andrew has a signed charter!  Recently, at ICOD, five of us had the pleasure of being Knighted by a team of Knights of St. Andrew from the Valley of Springfield.  Our Knight Commander will perform the Knighting ceremony on our other members at the earliest opportunity.  We still have plans to cast the 29° entirely with KStA members (which means we need more members).  If that sounds like something you’d like to be part of, email the Knight Commander, Jamie Emery, or the Knight Secretary, Michael McDorman and we will get you some information to help you along the way.  We look forward to hearing from you.  

Brethren, keep those articles coming for the Chimes Newsletter!  Please submit your articles to the Chimes editor Russ Hoeper, 32° as soon as possible.

I have been directed by our Deputy’s Representative (Ill. Brother Robert Millikan, MSA, 33°) to make the following announcement:

At the most recent Supreme Council meeting held in Lexington, Massachusetts, Brother Timothy J. Vice, MSA was elected to receive the 33° at Milwaukee in 2019.

Please congratulate Tim next time you see him or give him a call, text, or email!
