The September 25th Conclave of Hermit Commandery was a Grand affair. Hermit Commandery was host to Sir Knight Nicholas Vaccarello, Right Eminent Grand Commander of the Grand Commandery of Knights Templar of Pennsylvania, along with three other Grand Commandery officers, four past Grand Commanders and many other Grand Commanders, Past Grand Commanders, Grand Officers, Past Commanders and Commanders from PA and all over the United States. It was our pleasure to host the Sir Knights while the ladies of the Social Order Of Beauceant had a meeting of their own. The meeting was followed by a presentation on the Holy Land Pilgrimage given by our own Sir Knight Rev. Christopher D. Rodkey who made the journey to the Holy Land earlier this year. Pictured below is the group of Sir Knights after the Conclave and Sir Knight David Winters, P.C., who was presented with the Illustrious Knight of The Triangle award by Nicholas Vaccarello, REGC, and Jerry J. Hamilton, PGC (not pictured) who actually signed the award during his year as Grand Commander. Also pictured with David are his wife, Barb Winters, and Division Commander SK Mark G.
