A virtual Exemplification was held on Thursday, November 3 at 8PM
Bishop Griffin Assembly
Thank you very much for all your extra efforts to make the virtual Exemplification possible for our Assembly's two newest Brothers. Both were excellent candidates for the Fourth Degree, but neither would have been able to endure the day at the battleship.
The two new SKs are Robert Maguire, who was sponsored by Stephen Foster, and Anthony Simone, who was sponsored by Harold Campbell.
Stephen did yeoman's work to secure the small chapel, right off the main altar, for our use that evening. The classically, almost monastic setting was perfect for a small Exemplification.
Greg Dobbs was at the church early to be sure our A/V equipment was connected flawlessly and we were pleasantly surprised when Dick Graham showed up in uniform so we can claim we had Color Corps at the Exemplification.
Witnesses were Tim Reef and Ray Merendino of our Assembly.
For a small, virtual Exemplification, the setting and experience was perfect!
Thanks again, Worthy Master, for helping make this happen.
