Message from the Most Wise Sovereign
Sovereign Princes, as Christmas fast approaches so does the end of my journey in this term of Office. Sadly, this will be my final message as Most Wise Sovereign of the Hamilton Sovereign Chapter of Rose Croix. People often say that a well-run organization is a sign of good leadership, however I believe that it is a sign of an excellent team effort. Even the best leader will have difficulty without the right team behind them. I would like to thank the officers and all the members of the Hamilton Sovereign Chapter of Rose Croix who donated their time and effort in making my two years as Most Wise Sovereign and our reunions and Easter Ceremonies a success.
I wish the Incoming M.W.S. much success, as he will have one of the best slate of officers one could ask for. I will provide him with as much assistance and guidance as possible and encourage each and every member to afford him the same support as you blessed me with. Please attend our installation ceremony, if at all possible, and show your support and encouragement to the line officers and the new Most Wise Sovereign. This ceremony is open to all members of the Chapter and yet seen by only a small portion of our membership. It is unique to other installations you may have witnessed and we hope to see you there.
Thanks again to each and every one of our officers and members. I hope everyone has a pleasant Holiday Season and wish you all much success and joy for 2018.
Pax Vobiscum Glenn V. McLeod Most Wise Sovereigne.
