Dear Fellow Nobles All:
As this article is being written and sent to print, our Easter Party and Circus Appreciation Dinner have already been held. I would like to thank the Committee Chairs Cindy Childs-Polom, Ron Stanley, and Brian Sabin for their outstanding leadership and direction for these successful events. I also want to thank all the Nobles, Ladies, and Children who unselfishly gave countless hours of time and support.
Going forward, we have a lot of great events planned for the upcoming months. Be sure to make your reservations for the Potentate's Ball being held May 21, 2016 and come enjoy the elegant cruise atmosphere and dance to the performance of "The Groove Party Band". We have rooms blocked thru the Comfort Inn of Birch Run ( 989-624-7777 ) under Elf Khurafeh Shriners, deadline for room reservations is 05/13/16. Don't miss out on the fun! Dress code is Cruise Elegant, tuxedos are not required. Also look for upcoming information on the BBQ Competition and Mud Bog at Circus Park, which will surely draw a great crowd and festivities.
Nobles, it is not to early to start looking for candidates for our June Ceremonial, which will be held in Midland at the Holiday Inn. A tentative schedule will be printed in the Arabian Knights and sent to clubs and units. We need to reach out to our prospective Legacy members and Masonic Brothers to join the Shrine. Not only for the purpose of helping Children at Shriner's Hospitals, but to increase our membership and grow our Philanthropy.
In closing, I wish all the Ladies a Happy Mother's day. Prayers to our sick and shut-ins, may you have a swift and speedy recovery.
God Bless our Children and Shriners!
Elf Khurafeh Shrine
