Greetings nobles and Ladies,
Fall is coming, soon the leaves will fall. Where did the time go? I want to thank Knobby and Doc and the Clowns on Chairing the Family Picnic, El Said Court #28 for face painting, and Jim Greer for the thirty years of train rides. A big thanks to all that helped putting up and tearing down. I hope everyone had a good time, and ate good!
The Imperial Session in Daytona Beach was very informational, all our Officers took a lot home from the Seminars, we even had some time to have some fun. We are now getting ready to go to the GLSA in Grand Rapids, we will have a New Unit unveiled there, watch for it!
The Finance Committee is still working on the finances of our Shrine. We will have an update at the October Business Meeting. The Divan is working on keeping the Doors open for years to come.
We have been working on getting the Shrine Banquet Facility-Saginaw ( Pulaski Hall) as a Banquet Hall. We have a Professional Event Planer working with us to get it up and running, the Future looks promising.
Just a reminder to the Clubs and Units, as you elect your Officers for 2019, forward the results to Betty, so she can get them in the Pocket Calendar.
Our Halloween Party is coming on the October 28th starting at noon at the Shrine Banquet Facility-Saginaw ( Pulaski Hall). Charles and Ruth Hill are the Chairman, I am sure they could use some help. Lets all dress up and come out in costume!!
Dues are now due. We have 51 Nobles that are up for NPD, 2 years in arrears. This is way too many. If you are having difficulties paying your Dues, get with Clarence Meyers, he may be able to help.
Lets not forget about the Fall Ceremonial on November 3rd, get those Petitions in. The future of our Temple depends on it. Last, but not least, get out and go to a Club Meeting...or a Unit Meeting..or a Business Meeting. The Black Camel has taken too many Nobles, we need all the Nobles we can get!!
Yours in Faith,
Ill Sir John C Berry
