Since the installation and inauguration of this commandery, several executive board, expanded Grand Board and Joint Grand Board Meetings have been held to put the newly established Grand on its footing. We must at this time express our sincere thanks to the Grand Officers for their cooperation during the period under consideration.
While we to an extend appreciate the level of cooperation, we want to urge all Grand Officers that the success of this commandery and its planned activities will only be achieved if we mount our concerted efforts. The work and functions attached to each of the offices we occupy must be effectively carried out if we must meet our target goals.
