Due to the increased cases of COVID-19, the Governor and MDHHS restrictions, and the Grand Master of Masons in Michigan’s edicts, we have been forced to postpone our December Business Meeting and Officer Elections until the January 13, 2021 Business Meeting.
The January 13 meeting will be very busy as it is our Annual Meeting, Business meeting, and now Election of Officers, and possible the Installation of Officers. You will need a current Dues Card to attend this meeting so please make every effort to get your 2021 dues paid.
While 2020 has not been the year any of us planned, Elf Khurafeh Shrine is finishing it strong. The Sportsman’s Raffle was held virtually on November 21, and we made a surprisingly good profit. I want to thank Phil Brack, committee chairman, and all the Nobles who worked throughout the year to make it happen. Also, all the Nobles, Clubs and Units, and Friends who sold and / or bought tickets. And lastly a big thank you to Larry Hennesee, who at the last minute stepped in to make our broadcast both professional and successful. We have also had several other favorable financial events in the past month.
Please make every effort to get your dues paid. This is the easiest way to support the Temple. Purchase and sell the 2021 Cash Calendar. This fund raiser is simple and fun!
Finally, I thank the Divan members, Past Potentates, Clubs and Units, and all Nobles and their Ladies, for your support and help throughout 2020. Hopefully, our work and struggles this year will have lasting positive impacts on Elf Khurafeh Shrine and our communities.
God Bless each of you! Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May 2021 be brighter and better for all of us.
