Summer Recess Ends… the Cincinnati Chapter BOM Meetings Resume!

Cincinnati launched the second semester of its BOM Meeting this past Wednesday, 2nd of September at the outdoor picnic pavilion at the Syrian Shrine on Reading Rd.

The turnout was good with four new members being inducted into the Chapter. New member inductions are always a favorite event. New folks joining the fellowship and new opportunities to work with guys passionate about their lineage and heritage! Our new compatriots are: Timothy James Madden, John Andrew Wilson, Brent Neil Walker and Jerry Wayne Anson. Welcome aboard gentlemen–glad to have you with us!
