At the 4th Degree Exemplification on February 8th, District Master Bill Schmidt elevated 29 men to the 4th Degree. This exemplification was extra special to Bill because his son, Curtis Paul, was one of the men becoming a 4th degree member. Bill’s father is also a 4th degree member and at the banquet following the exemplification, Bill presented Curtis Paul with the sword of the 4th degree that was passed down to him when he became a 4th degree member many years ago.
Worthy Sir Knights, with all of the developments as of late with the COVID-19 situation, I have no choice but to cancel the Fourth Degree Exemplification in Owensboro on April 25th in the interest of everyone’s health and safety.
The next Exemplification is scheduled for June 20th in Louisville. I am already working with the local Assemblies to make this a great Exemplification.
Stay healthy, Brothers.
