Brethren,

I wish to thank all of you who were able to come out to Jackson Lodge the other night for our formal chartering and instillation of Capital City High Twelve.  For those who were unable to make it due to personal reasons, you were in our thoughts and prayers, and we look forward to sitting with you for some fun and fellowship soon.
 
Brothers Neal and the other state officers who came up from as far as Orlando and St. Cloud were incredibly impressed by how many of us came out, and they were excited by our collective youth and enthusiasm.  For example, we already sold 8 of the 10 challenge coins/key chains which they gave us, which looks like it has already knocked out a chunk of the cost for our Club Banner.  I hope that some of us can make it down to Orlando for the State Convention on the weekend of December 5th.  
 
I realize that was a lot to throw at you during the ceremony and after, and I appreciate the faith and trust in each other that you all had to join until we hammer out the details.  I will be in communication with our own executive board officers as well as the state officers to get some clarification to present to you all in terms of clarifying our charitable mission and scheduling future meetings and fun events.  Indeed, Brother Neal and the other state officers admonished us to keep it fun and light, and to make sure to invite the wives and girlfriends to future gatherings.
  
As of now we have 18 Charter members from Tallahassee.  I have no doubt that by this time next month, we could double in number, when factoring in word of mouth to some of our Brothers at Larson, Robert Butler, and Jackson (which I have been told is #1).  
 
I will follow up soon with a tentative schedule and information, but if you have any questions between now and then, do not hesitate to email me or to call me at 412-818-1754.
 
Fraternally,

John Kraniou
