This week-end was the State Council District Deputy Mid-Year Meeting. District Deputies from New Hampshire met and discussed the progress made this year in their respective councils toward attaining positive results of inviting new members to our councils. Council efforts through Delta church drives and through evangelistic expressions through our Faith in Action programs have resulted in 91 new members. Through December, two different councils have jumped onto this updated list. One month to go. Your council can do likewise. So leading into December the member growth incentive leader list is as follows.

The week-end before Thanksgiving I was as the SD Mid-Year Meeting. The Supreme Council’s message focused on the reasons behind Council Growth, and Faith in Action programming. State Ceremonials Director Joel Plante was invited down on the Sunday to view changes to the Degree Program. This coming week-end our State District Deputies will be meeting for our DD Mid-year Meeting on these, and other important information that they will be imparting to you as they visit your councils.

District Deputies need your assistance with reporting information back to the State & Supreme Councils. Two things you can help them with this month.

  • What are the dates of your council’s two membership drives, this fraternal year?
  • How does your council do 1st Degrees for your new incoming members?

Remember: District Deputies are available to assist you with issues that come up in your councils.
