New Members

The lifeblood of this council is its new members!

T he lifeblood of this council is new members.  Without the passion and energy and ideas of new members, the council would soon become stale and lethargic and lose conviction and purpose.  It is with great pleasure, then, that we welcome these new members into our council and let us all encourage these new men to display their talents and energy for the good of the order.
