Formation and Knighthood Degree - Sierra Vista

To: District Deputies and Grand Knights
Subject: Exemplification of the Formation and Knighthood Degrees of the Order

October 31, 2017

Worthy District Deputies and Grand Knights,
Please prepare for the upcoming Formation (2nd ) and Knighthood (3rd ) Degrees. Here are the details.
WHERE: Bishop Salpointe Council 4584
Kayetan Dr, Sierra Vista 85635-0296
WHEN: Saturday, November 18, 2017
THIRD DEGREE BEGINS: Immediately following the Second Degree
REGISTRATION FEE (PER CANDIDATE): $10.00 - payable at the door
LUNCH: $7.00 - served after the Third Degree
Coffee and donuts will be available for non-candidates only.
Bishop Salpointe Council 4584 will be the hosts for this exemplification. Please contact District Deputy DD Robert Bridges 520-227-8649 rhbridges60@gmail.com or Grand Knight GK Jeffrey Herber, 520-255-0636, Jeffrey.herber@yahoo.com not later than November 16, 2017 with the number of candidates and members expected to attend from your council.
It is important to let the host council know of the number of candidates and members that will be attending.
It is very important for the candidates to be escorted by their sponsors or at least someone from their own Council, and for that person to report the new candidates’ attendance at the degree to the home Grand Knight or Fin Sec.
Candidates MUST have a current Admissions (1st ) Degree Card to register. Registration and lunch fees for candidates and members will be collected at registration. Lunch tickets will be provided as appropriate. If your Council is paying for its
candidates, register together so the Host Council can keep proper accounting. The Host Council must make payment of the candidate fees to the AZ State Council upon completion of the Formation Degree. Therefore, prompt payment is appreciated.
The exemplification of the Formation and Knighthood Degree is a special event; therefore, proper dress is required. Shirts with collars, slacks and shoes are appropriate. Shorts, tank tops, tee shirts, thong shoes are not acceptable dress for members or candidates.
Please advise candidates and members not to bring pagers or cell phones to the degree.
Vivat Jesus!
Skip Hopler
Ceremonial Chairman
