This Templar year the theme is ‘Share the Blessing’, the focus will be on helping those less fortunate. There are several ways we can make a difference in our communities. I am going to ask each Commandery to participate in food drives throughout the year, not just during the Holidays. Ask the Sir Knights of your Commandery to bring can goods or nonperishable items to your Conclaves each month. Help local charities with fund raising by volunteering your time, such as bell ringing for the Salvation Army. Also adopting a family during the Christmas season. I am sure in different parts of the state there are charitable programs that we can assist.
Sir Knight Ray K. Sheaffer,
Grand Commander 2017-18
