potentate's message - december 2019
Well the year is over it feels like it was just yesterday that it was January 1st 2019 and it was the start of my year as your Potentate, Tammy and I would like to thank all the nobles and their ladies for all your support over the year, it was an eventful year from the success of our circuses to the fun we had at the first annual chili cook off to the successful first ever meat raffle.
With that said, they always said the year would be fast and they were not joking. Some asked if I would do it again and would say I think I would but I think Tammy would divorce me, but I would have to say the Nobles of Elf Khurafeh are the best in the Shrine and again thanks for all the support. And for my last reminder is The Election of Officers on December 11, please come and support your officers that are running for their rightful offices for the year 2020, and to all the officers for the 2020 year.
Good luck and keep Elf Khurafeh moving forward.
Your Potentate for 2019,
recorder's message - september 2019
Nobles and Ladies, fall has arrived and the forecast is calling for more rain. The Great Lakes are near record heights. Enjoy the sunshine when it appears from the clouds this fall and attend your Shrine Meetings when possible, many shrine activities are taking place this fall and we hope you will attend some. Ceremonial for new members in Nov. 2 nd at Circus Park, bring your Masonic Brother to join the Shrine. Elf Khurafeh needs a large class to maintain our numbers.
Nobles your 2020 dues notices have been mailed from Tampa and you should have received them. Many Nobles have already paid and we appreciate that very much. If you find your 2020 dues notice to be in error please contact the Recorder at 810-686-2641 ext 4 and we can review it. With the dues mailing we have many Nobles that moved and did not notify Elf Khurafeh with your change of address and this costs your Shrine several hundred dollars in postal fees annually.
ALERT! ALERT! ALERT! We need Hospital Drivers to transport our patients to Chicago Shrine Hospital. We need drivers in all zones of our area. Please contact Clarence at 810-686-2641 ext 4, if you can find time to help with our Driver Transportation Unit. Most trips involve a one night stay in Chicago. Food, gas and Hotel is paid for by the Hospital Transportation Fund, drivers are required to attend one Driver’s Safety Seminar yearly with the next seminar being held October 19 at 9:00AM at Circus Park. Come out and see what it’s all about and then help transport our kids.
