recorder's message - july 2019
Happy summer to all Nobles, Ladies and Friends, it finally arrived. This has been a very active year for Potentate Stanley and the members of Elf Khurafeh Shrine with even more to follow, Temple Family Picnic, GLSA in Grove City, Ohio, Comedy Shows, Ceremonial in November, along with Club and Unit Picnics. Come out and enjoy the fellowship with Shriners and Friends.
LIFE MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE! Our Executive Board in 2018 voted to include the Imperial Per Capita Assessment of $30.00 to all Life Members effective with our 2019 dues. In the past this assessment has been paid from Elf Khurafeh funds and not invoiced to Life Members, but times have changed and your Executive Board feels, for Elf Khurafeh Shrine to continue we need to include this fee of $30.00 to all of our members which will now include the Life Members. This assessment for Life Members of EK Shrine amounts to over $10,000.00 yearly and this charge to Life Members will help pay bills. LIFE MEMBERS PLEASE HELP YOUR Shrine Temple by paying this new charge to you. We’re hoping this won’t cause a hardship and cause you to resign your membership; we just could use a little help paying the Imperial Assessment. Any questions, please call Recorder Clarence for answers and he will try to help you understand our problems. 2020 Dues Notices will be emailed to Nobles having emails listed in August by Shriners International, please respond with your payment when you can. If you’re having trouble contact Recorder Clarence and talk about options. Payments may be made with credit card by calling Betty at the office (810-686-2641 EXT 1). Dues notices to all Members will be mailed in September by Shriners International. Please remember that Dues are due and payable by January 1 st each year.
NOBLES: We need Hospital drivers in a serious way, some of the trips to Chicago Shrine Hospital have been cancelled due to lack of available drivers. This leaves a bad image to the public and to the patients’ parents. We’re not asking you to marry the Drivers Unit, but we only ask for a trip or two now and then when you’re available. Please Nobles, if you can help, call either Noble Thurston at 989-708-0694, Noble Gaffney at 810-516-4677 or Noble Ecklin at 989-954-9464 and offer your help. Remember that the only cost to you is your time. Thank you in advance, Clarence.
