September 2019

Summer has come and gone andwith it most of the fairs and pa-

rades. September brings the mid-Atlantic shrine association meeting

in Virginia Beach. Attendees willenjoy unit competitions, a spectac-

ular parade and a beautiful hospitality room; not to mention dolphin watching from your ocean front room. Thanks to Past Po- tentate Bryan Ferguson for all of his hard work as housing chairman.

September is also the month for our primary fundraising event. This year’s Sportsman’s Spectacular is Saturday, September 21st. Prizes on the main ticket include high-end guns, kayaks, and various amounts of cash. Once again, winners will have a choice of a gun or $400check. The Cub Cadet side by side and alumi- num trailer will also be given away that day. You recently received tickets for both of these raffles. Please purchase or sell these tickets, then remit the stubs along with $50 to the temple as soon as possible. If you are available on Saturday, September 21st, we would appreciate your help in the kitchen or at the gate. Help is also needed on Friday and Sunday for set up and clean up crews. “Many hands make light work.” The Clubs & Units will be raising funds with lots of interesting raffles. Come, enjoy the day andfellowship.

Just a reminder, dues notices have been sent from Tampa. Please address this matter in a timely fashion to avoid notice of suspension. If you have any questions or suggestions for the Temple, please call me anytime. I will do my best to get you an answer. As always, remember your Masonic obligations.

Please contact me if I can assist in any way.

Remember your Blue Lodge Obligations

It’s that time of year to start thinking about year end gifts from the clubs and units. The Divan is requesting that gifts be given to the Building Fund and Nobles In Need Fund.
