NOTE: The December blog post is the final post of Illustrious Sir Charles Frisby's year. January's post will begin Illustrious Sir Dave Karcher's year of blog posts.
It does not seem possible that this is the last message I will be sending you as the Potentate of Elf Khurafeh Shrine. What an honor it has been.
2015 has suddenly slipped by for Lady Dee and I way too fast. We would like to thank all for supporting us this year and welcoming us into to your units, clubs, and into your homes. We have met many new friends, made them our dear friends. We have had the opportunity to travel and visit the Potentates and Divan from other Shrine Centers as well as Imperial officers and tried our best to cement relationships and further the cause of our philanthropy. Not only have we met Shrine members from throughout the U.S. and Canada, but also from Puerto Rico, Mexico, Philippines and Germany, also from our newly chartered Shrine Center, Brazil. What a wonderful year you have provided for Lady Dee and I.
I thank you for your outstanding support in the 2015 projects and activities we sponsored. There is not enough space left in this message to list all the Nobles. units, and clubs which have given their time and finances to make them a success, nor enough space to list all the accolades needed to describe our heartfelt thanks. We will just say THANK YOU ALL for your assistance in your very important part in any success we may have had.
Nobles, many projects were completed for the betterment of our Shrine Center but many are still on the trestle board waiting for completion. As I promise you I will not be an unseen Past Potentate, I will work to see these projects completed.
Nobles, Chief Rabban Dave Karcher has an excellent Divan for you to work with in 2016. Please give them your assistance and support.
Again, thank you so much for allowing me the honor of serving you as Potentate for 2015. As we prepare to say we will see you later rather than good-bye, Lady Dee and I would like to wish you and your family a very MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!
Yours in the Faith.
Chuck Frisby, Potentate, and First Lady Dee
