Raleigh York Rite News

From the Secretary/Recorder:
Things continue to return to normal in 2023. Grand York Rite was held in Clemmons and John W. Davis III was reelected Grand Treasurer, William T. Highsmith was elected Grand High Priest and Calvin Rogers was elected Grand Master of the 3rd Veil. Unfortunately, he passed to that house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens a few days later. He will be missed. Sr. Knight Charles Talley II was elected Grand Sword Bearer in the Grand Commandery.

On the local front, our Festival brought in 4 new Companions and 5 Sir Knights. Congratulations to our newest members. We hope that you take an active part in our Bodies. We can always use assistance with our degree work and other works in the Bodies. Raleigh Commandery No. 4 was the recipient of both the Wilbert F. Huntley Award and the Fredrick Speidel Award at the Grand York Rite meetings in March. The Huntley Award is the top award given to commanderies each year. Thanks to all who contributed to Raleigh Commandery No. 4 and made this possible. At our 2023 Christmas Observance the Raleigh Merit awards were presented. Congratulations Companion and Sir Knight Alan Mabry 2022 and Companion and Sir Knight Michael Orlando 2023.

Members of our Bodies continue to serve in leadership in other Masonic Bodies. We congratulate all of our members who serve in other Bodies. Our attendance continues to be between 20 - 25 members. We encourage you to attend and be a part of our Bodies.
