Ceremonialists Needed

The Frank J. Perri Memorial Degree Team needs additional team members. We perform the Formation (or Second) Degree and are in immediate need of Knights who are interested in helping their Brother Knights to advance in their knowledge of what we are and what we stand for.

The team performs an average of six times per year and some travel is needed.  Degree work is fun and very rewarding – ask anyone who is involved.

If you have ever had a desire to perform as a team member, now is the time. Contact Staff Coordinator Pete Karculias at skpeter@cox.net and let him know.
