Julius V. "Mike" Moeykens was the Class Honoree for the Second and Third Degrees exemplified on Jan 4, 2015 in Tucson. Mike is a Past State Deputy from Vermont and has been a Conferring Officer since the early 1980's. He has led about 111 Third Degree exemplifications in his long service to the order. Mike announced his retirement as a Conferring Officer recently but he will continue to serve in other ceremonial roles.
Fellow Conferring Officers Larry Costanzo, Edwin "Skip" Hopler and Ray Obral were on hand to share their admiration for all Mike has done. State Deputy Larry Becker presented Mike with a commemorative plaque and certificate from Supreme honoring Mike for his service.
You can view some photos from the occasion here.

Dear Ray (Obral); Thanks for your submission. We will include your report AND/OR photo in the next online posting of Knights in Action on Nov. 1, 2014. Your report will be viewable there for approximately one month, after which time it will be archived on the K of C website and filed for publication in the magazine at a later date. Due to the volume of reports received weekly and the limited number of pages available to us monthly in the print edition of the magazine, it will likely be several months before it appears in print. Thanks again.
