From the Apartment of the Commander: 

Sir Knight Raymon W. Bacchus, Eminent Commander 2017-2018


Greetings my dear Sir Knights,


Thank you all for the honor of electing me your Commander and for the opportunity to serve our Commandery. I sincerely appreciate your confidence. Your 2017-2018 Leadership Team has large shoes to fill but we have the luxury of being able to leverage the work of our predecessors. We are looking forward to our Piedmont family having a great year.


I would certainly be remiss if I didn’t extend special thanks to our installing team. Sir Knight Jeffrey G. Burcham as Installing Officer, Sir Knight Anthony J. LaCava as Installing Marshal and Sir Knight Michael J. Kastle as Installing Prelate each did an outstanding job and certainly took the evening to the next level.


Thank you so very much again Sir Knights! Let’s enjoy our Commandery and share in the rewarding experience of being a Sir Knight together.


Sincerely and fraternally yours in friendship and service,


Ray Bacchus

Eminent Commander Piedmont Commandery No. 26
