Most Eminent Grand Commander Message

Welcome

Making a difference

An old
man walked up a shore littered
with thousands of
starfish, beached and dying
after a storm. A young man was picking
them up and
flinging
them back into the ocean. "Why do you
bother?" the old
man scoffed.
"You're not saving enough
to make a difference." The young man
picked up another starfish
and
sent it spinning back to the water.
"M
ade a difference to that one," he said.

You make a difference every day.

Yours in Knightly Courtesy,
Sir
Knight Ronald W. Barber
