I am writing this while getting ready to go to the Imperial Session. Looks like Elf Khurafeh will be well represented in Daytona this year with 10-12 Nobles and their
Ladies going. ShrineFest is over, lots of work went into putting that on. I want to thank everyone that came out and helped. Some came out for 4 days, some came out just one day, but a lot of people put their sweat and energy into making it a success. There are too many to name them all, but you know who you are. The weather didn't cooperate, with all the rain, but it didn't stop us. The final tally is almost ready and we did make some money!!
Summer is now in full swing. I hope you all can get out and enjoy the season. I see the active Units and Clubs out on the streets in parades. Nothing promotes the Shrine
like Shriners in parades! The Onions Sales are now over, and was a success, thanks to all your hard work and time spent selling them. Lets not forget the Paper Sale is in full swing, if you have not received yours, let me know, as we still have a few left.
Potentate Trip will be to Mackinaw City on August 17th-19th. This will be at the Mackinaw Beach & Bay Inn and Suites. This is right on the water!! Cost will be $229, but this is for a Suite that sleeps 6 people. This is a trip for everyone, bring your kids, grand kids. There is a lot to do, Swimming, shopping, wine tasting, sitting by the pool, or even go to the casino! We can go to Mackinaw Island!! Working on a trip to Leggs Inn for dinner. Call Pat Bell @ 231-818-0468 to reserve your room ask for Elf Khurafeh Shrine.
We will be taking a Trip to the Ark Adventure and Creation Museum. The trip will be
on the 14th, 15th, and 16th of September. This will give us one day at each place, enough time to explore them both. The cost will be $850 per couple or $450 per person. This will include the bus trip to both, include hotel room (two nights), snacks and water, prizes and surprises!! We are working on getting two Pastors to entertain us on the way down and on the way back. Those that went down last year had a great time, and want to go again. 50% will be due on August 15th, total due on September 1st. The bus will fill up fast, we have 15 couples signed up already. Call Betty to reserve your spot @ (810) 686-2641 Ext 1.
Ron Regalado is putting together a Tiger baseball trip on September 9th. Not all the
details are in, but save the date. It will include the bus trip, ticket, snacks and water. We are still working on the price, but stay tuned. (EDIT: Information is now available - click HERE for details - JWD)
If you have not gotten your Dues in...try to get them in. We don’t need more NPD's. If you need help or are having difficulties call Clarence Meyer at (810) 686-2641 Ext 4, there are some programs available to help you.
As always your Shrine legacy is what you make of it. Get active, go out and have some
fun! It will make you feel better and it will help our Shrine also!!
Yours in Faith,
