Em. Kt. Ted Jenkins assisted by Rt. Em Kt. Norman Farrow and the team. Also, I would like to congratulate the Sir Knights who were installed in the various offices of the Preceptory.

A big thank you to the officers and Sir Kt's who participated. At the March (and April) meetings the Order of the Temple, Novice and Installation, shall be performed on all available Knights of Malta. The officers should expect to see a work sheet sent their way shortly.
