From the Chamber of the High Priest





At our stated convocation on September 14, 2011 a corps of officers was elected and installed for Capitular Year 2011-2012.  The names and phone numbers of these officers are listed elsewhere in this Trestleboard.  Please feel free to contact your High Priest with any information, questions, suggestions or concerns.


Please come early at 6:30 and fellowship with us over dinner before the stated meetings.  Refreshments will be provided by a rotation of companions volunteering to bring food on a particular month.  Please use sign up sheet in the Social Hall to volunteer to provide refreshment for a particular month; expenses will be reimbursed by the Chapter.


We will also have some interesting programs during the meetings; if you have a subject that you’d like to hear about or a program you’d like to present, please let your High Priest know.  DC Night is June 13, 2012.  Also please let your High Priest or our District Lecturer George Bierman know if you’d like to learn a degree part or participate in district wide degree work.


The Call To Grand Chapter has been issued. It will be on 18-19 November at the Crowne Plaza Fort Magruder Inn, Williamsburg, VA. In addition to the important business (including status of “life membership”) and election of officers there will be the conferral of the Anointed High Priest, the Super Excellent Master’s and the Thrice Illustrious Master’s degrees. Details are available from our Secretary or on-line at


Also we expect one of our own to be installed as the District Deputy Grand High Priest for 2012, so we hope you can join us there for that event. Make your reservations now!


Sincerely and Fraternally,

Daniel C. Duvall, HP

Signs You Are Too Old For Halloween

You get winded from knocking on the door.

You have to have someone chew the candy for you.

When the door opens you yell, "Trick or..." and you can't remember the rest.

You ask for high fiber candy only.

When someone drops a candy bar in your bag, you lose your balance and fall over.
