Investiture Weekend 2019

The Commandery of the Palm Beaches held their 2019 Investiture, November 9. The service was held in the beautiful St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. We witnessed seven aspirants invested, with Dame Michele Vogel being invested in Cleveland on October 12, 2019. We are looking forward to these new members taking an active role in the Order and our community efforts. Approximately 76 members participated in the Order process and we were blessed to have the Grand Master, Grand Commander, Grand Hospitaller and Grand Conservator in attendance.  Many Commanders and approximately 20 former Commanders attended. 

 

Congratulations to new Palm Beach Commandery members Gail Colvin, Helen Corry, Paul Corry, Mary Jane Cunneen, Mary Alice Gwynn, Melissa Nash, Frankie Stevens, and Michele Vogel.

 

The weekend began with the Aspirant Luncheon on Friday, which was the first opportunity

for our visitors to meet our aspirants.

Friday evening, a Meet & Greet Reception was held at PGA National Resort & Spa attended by our dignitaries and guests to meet each other and make new friends.

The moving Investiture Ceremony was held Saturday at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Palm Beach Gardens.

After the ceremony, all returned to PGA National Resort & Spa for cocktails and the gala dinner.  Everyone enjoyed a wonderful evening of great friendship, wonderful food, wine, and dancing. Sunday morning 38 attendees traveled to Port Everglades for a week-long cruise on the Regal Princess.
