Greetings Nobles and Ladies, here it is fall and we still have 167 Nobles (12%) who have NOT PAID their 2016 dues. How disappointing for your officers to hear this, we thought you cared about our philanthropy of caring for children and all the healing our Doctors are doing at our Shrine Hospitals. Nobles take a moment and consider well about paying your dues and staying a member of Shriners International and remaining a part of the healing of our Shrine Children. If you are having financial difficulties, maybe the Sunshine Fund can assist you, call the Recorder and talk to him privately. Nobles if you get a chance, visit one of our Shrine Hospitals and see the smiling faces of the Kids. 2017 Dues Notices will be arriving in early October, they are being mailed by Imperial, please send your payment to Elf Khurafeh Shrine in Clio, MI., P.O. Box 1, 48420.
Our Fall Ceremonial will be held on November 5th at Circus Park and will be “HOT SANDS”, Nobles sign up your Masonic Friends to join the World’s Greatest Philanthropy, let them know of the Shrine Clubs and Units and the fun of being a member of a Club or Unit or both.
The Shrine Circus kick-off will be Oct. 19th at Circus Park, 6:00 P.M. with a dinner. We are undertaking a new advertizing plan with major sponsors, event presenters, along with program ads. The Circus Program will be free and distributed in December to stores and businesses for pickup by prospective patrons to take home and read, and maybe get interested in attending the Circus. Ad sales will be cut off on October 20th and all information must be in to the office by then. Nobles, you get a 15% commission on sales of ads. Samples are available at the office.
Just a reminder, the Annual Election of Officers will be held on December 14, 2016 at Pulaski Hall in Saginaw.
