Happy New Year Nobles and Ladies, some new events are scheduled at Circus Park for 2016; February brings a try at Scrap Booking open to the public. June we are having a State Championship Kansas City Barbeque on the grounds along with a Mud Bog in the farm field. We have some neat new ideas coming from some of our new younger members and we need to support them the best we can. A Cigar & Whiskey Shrine Club is being formed and will be sponsored by Oasis Shrine Club.
The Installation of 2016 Officers has taken place and we had a good turnout of Nobles, Family and Friends. Congratulations to our new leadership, we plan on the continued success for Elf Khurafeh Shrine as in the past with added features.
Thank you to the Nobles, Friends, Shrine Clubs and Units for your contributions to the Tele-Medicine Room. Enough funds were raised to purchase the Cart and an Examination Table, but it still leaves us with the operating expenses of the Technicians. We remain open for donations.
We had a visit from Representatives of Shriners International and the Chicago Hospital on Dec. 11th to look at our Tele-Medicine Room seems we are far ahead of Tampa in our planning as they need to set rules and check insurance and other things before we can get started.
Nobles, our membership is down to 1,401 on January 1st, 2016. We all need to look for new members and also try to restore those that were suspended or demitted. Let’s improve our numbers over 2015.
