Happy summer to all Nobles, Ladies and Friends, it’s finally arrived. This has been a very active year for Potentate Berry and the members of Elf Khurafeh Shrine with more to follow. Loon’s Baseball game, trip to Mackinaw City, Family Picnic, GLSA in Grand Rapids, along with Club and Unit Picnics. Come out and enjoy the fellowship with old and new Shriners and Friends.
LIFE MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE! Our Executive Officers have voted to include the Imperial Per Capita Assessment of $30.00 to all Life Members effective with our 2019 dues. In the past this assessment has been paid by Elf Khurafeh and not carried invoiced Life Members, but times have changed and your Executive Officers feel, for Elf Khurafeh Shrine to continue we need to include this fee of $30.00 to all of our members which will now include the Life Members. This assessment for Life Members of EK Shrine amounts to over $10,000.00 yearly and this help from Life Members will help us pay bills. LIFE MEMBERS PLEASE HELP YOUR Shrine Temple by paying this new charge to you, we don’t want to cause you to resign your membership, we just need some help. Questions, please call Recorder Clarence for answers and he will try to help you understand our problems. 2019 Dues Notices will be mailed to everyone in August by Shriners International, please respond with your payment when you can. If you’re having trouble contact Recorder Clarence and talk about options.
NOBLES: We need Hospital drivers in a bad way, some of the trips to Chicago Shrine Hospital have been cancelled due to lack of available drivers. This leaves a bad image to the public and to the patients’ parents. We’re not asking you to marry the Drivers Unit, but we only ask for a trip or two now and then when you’re available. Please Nobles, if you can help, call either Noble Thurston at 989-835-8110 or Noble Gaffney at 810-516-4677 and offer your help. Thank you in advance, Clarence.
Clarence W. Meyer, Jr., P.P., Recorder
