08/12/2017School of Instruction – Templar District One

The District School of Instruction will be held on Saturday August 12, 2017, in the asylum of Alexander C. Garrett Commandery No. 103, located at 4912 S. Buckner Dr., Dallas, Texas 75227-2001. Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. and the school will commence at 9:00 a.m., and end at 2:00 p.m. Dress is casual, but bring your sword, belt and chapeaux. We will review the new Alternate 9 Sir Knight Opening, full Opening (time permitting), Closing, and the Order of the Temple. Please come prepared to participate, as volunteers will be needed to fill some stations.

Alexander C. Garrett Commandery has agreed to provide us with refreshments for the School. Please assist them by notifying their Recorder, Sir Knight Daniel Hill, at (972) 492-4245, of the number from your Commandery you expect to attend so adequate preparation can be made. Further, please come prepared to schedule your annual visitation so that each Commandery can have as much advance notice as possible.

Eminent Commanders and Recorders, please remember that attending a district school of instruction is required for you to qualify for the Merit Award. This is in addition to meeting all other requirements set forth in Chapter 56, Articles 344, 345, and 346 of the Statutes and Regulations of this Grand Commandery. Also, as provided by Article 113, it is the duty of all Officers of each Commandery to attend a School of Instruction. Of course, all members are encouraged to attend.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (903) 816-9259, or email at cjvision2020@zoho.com. If I am not available when you call, please leave a message and I will return your call as soon as possible.
