Greetings to all my Noble-Masons and Ladies, June is going to be a very busy month; Shrine Fest June 2, 3 and 4, Drivers Safety Seminar 6-3-2017, Paper sale kick-offs on 1st(Circus Park) and 21st (Charlie Fick’s in Grayling), Arab Patrol Steak Fry 6-8-2017, Oasis Steak Fry 6-15-2017, Stated Meeting on 6-14-2017 at Circus Park and Fathers Day on June 18th.
Nobles, we have 288 members who have not paid dues for 2017, this amounts to over $24,000.00. SIXTY-THREE % of these funds are for Temple operations and THIRTY-THREE % goes to Imperial Shrine. We did not have a very successful profit from the Circus and we need you Nobles to pay your dues. Dues are due on January 1st each year and it’s now June. PLEASE PAY YOUR 2017 DUES NOW! We need these funds for general operation expenses.
Life Members, did you know that the Temple has been paying your Per Capita as a courtesy since you became a Life Member? Imperial Shrine bills Elf Khurafeh Shrine $30.00 Per Capita for each member, each year. Members paying Regular Dues this amount is included in your dues statement. With operation costs continuing to rise, it may be necessary to request all members to pay the yearly Imperial Per Capita Assessment of $30.00.. This courtesy amounted to $10,800.00 in 2017 and over several years could amount to a substantial amount of money which could be used for maintenance and repair of Elf Khurafeh Shrine property. This change would take a vote of the Membership at a specially called meeting. $30.00 dollars a year, should we change the by-laws for this? Think about it. Comments to your Recorder are welcome.
As of this writing we only have 5 candidates listed for the Spring Ceremonial, Nobles, we need your help on new Members. The Fall Ceremonial in November could be the time for lot’s more candidates, Please help us grow and not die in the wind.
Clarence W. Meyer, Jr., P.P., Recorder
