John F. Kennedy / John P. Holland Division

New London, Connecticut

Welcome. Thank you for all coming. We will begin with the pledge of allegiance to the flag, followed by reading the names of our deceased members.  Please stand.

We would be remiss not to begin our communion breakfast without a special acknowledgment of all the members of our Armed Forces, civilians as well as military personnel, who have given their lives in a sacrifice which enables us to enjoy the freedoms of our great nation. May they rest in Peace. We pray for those who go in harm's way today in service to our country in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other trouble spots around the world. May God protect them and bring them safely home.

We pray for our newly elected government leaders.  May God guide them in direction  to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves, our children, and grandchildren.

We pray at this time for the repose of the souls of the following deceased former members of our Order, their family members, and friends. May they rest in Peace.

As expected, our list of deceased members has increased again in the past year, including men who have been active members for many years.
