November 19 is Knights of St. Andrews night at the Temple.

Be prepared to discuss and vote on next year’s Venerable Master and the top four offices. The new Venerable Master will appoint
Said Tabrizi and Andrew Marcinkowska and Bo Farber and Daniel Chavez, were inducted as a Knight Commander of the Court of Honor and are not eligible for holding an office in the Knights of St. Andrew. Peter Ryba passed away.
That gives us 23 members and we are permitted to have not more than 33.
This has been a great year for the KSA. We have participated in the Blood Drive, participated in the Art Car parade with the KSA truck, assisted in the Kitchen and Property areas, (Chuck Ivy) worked in the Sound Booth, helped in Wardrobe area, worked the check-in desk, moved Brother Jeffrey Burnett’s Masonic Library, had a fine Feast of Bannockburn, and worked on the update of the Scottish Rite Mailing list.
We wish to thank all the Past Venerable Masters, especially Don Nesbitt for their assistance.
Pat Cook, Pat Mahoney, H. Bart Henderson, Chris Holder, Don Little, Scott Bumgardner, John Croft, Robert Starkey, Lee Smith, David Fernandez, Chad Cornelius, Raul Sarmiento, Robert Murry, Elis Sartwelle, and Allan Lazor were invaluable for their guidance, directions and assistance. They are all true Brothers. and I almost forgot, Richard (Dick) Heale helped a little too.
Next year will be even better as we keep moving forward.
The next KSA meeting is mandatory for all KSA members, so make sure to make plans and be there.
