I am pleased to announce that the Fourth Degree Exemplification has been set for Saturday, October 17, 2015 in New Richmond WI. YES, I said New Richmond -- It does not get any closer than this. So please mark your calendar for that date. You will have to be at St. Mary's School around 10:30 AM for registration, lunch will be served at noon. The Exemplification will start around 1:00 PM, we will then attend Mass at 5:00 PM, followed by a formal banquet in the church downstairs. There will be a noon luncheon, followed by a short program for the ladies. Each Knight is required to wear a tuxedo. Apple Blossom Floral and Events rents tuxedos.
