  • Royal Arch Master degree, (the final degree for chapter) on August 19th. There will be a dinner at 6:30 and degree at 7:30PM

Also please note that the annual Concord York Rite Picnic sponsored by Horace Chase Council will be on Tuesday, June 17th at 6:30PM – Please RSVP to Marc Gelinas or myself so we make sure we have enough food.
All members of the Masonic family are invited, their spouses, children, friends and family! Please join us!

As for Commandery, please be aware that if you have a full commandery uniform and are attending the Cathedral of the Pines on St. John’s Sunday, June 22 in Rindge, NH we could use your assistance! A full uniform with Chapeau and Sword are required as we will be a part of the team receiving the dignitaries of this event. Please contact myself or the Eminent Commander if you can assist with this.

I know there has been very little communication as of late and for that we apologize. We went through a merger this winter with the Claremont York Rite bodies and it took a little time to get that all sorted and then the two groups organized together. We think we have that well started and things should flow a bit smoother now. We will do our best to put out timely and periodic notices like this one.

The leadership in the Concord York Rite this year is as follows:

High Priest of Trinity Chapter is Andy M. Lord[email protected]
Illustrious Master of Horace Chase Council is Marc R. Gelinas[email protected]
Eminent Commander of Mt. Horeb Commandery is Earl W. Cole, Jr.[email protected]

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I will do everything I can to get you the answer.

Respectfully submitted,
Scott M.. Ayen, Secretary/Recorder
