also be recognized for being a 50 year member of ShrinersInternational. You will need your 2019 dues card foradmittance.

Also, at the meeting, the Nobility will vote on the use of earnings from the Life Membership Fund.

A reminder to all Units and Clubs. The year end financial reports will arrive soon and must be completed in a timely manner and returned to the Recorder’s office. If you receive the reports and you are not currently serving as your Unit or Club Treasurer, please forward the report to the newTreasurer.

2019 looks like it will be an exciting year. Leroy Woods, Chief Rabban, has put together a calendar of events and parades that will offer several activities for the membership. Now it’s time that you get involved and support these activities andparades.

Congratulations to Ill Sir Randy Burr and his Lady Agnes for serving as Potentate and First Lady in 2018.

Thank you to the Nobles that have paid their membership dues for 2019. The dues, per Shriners International bylaws are actually due 12-31-2018, so if you still owe dues for 2019 the Divan would appreciate getting them paid. Dues can be paid by cash, check or credit card. The 2019 Zem Zem budget is based on dues income.

Units and Clubs. 2019 is an opportunity to update your membership list with the Recorders office and a great time to review your Unit and Club Bylaws. Need information regarding Shrine Bylaws, Protocol or Shrinedom in general, please give me a call.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to serve the Nobility of Zem Zem Shriners in 2018. I look forward to serving you in the future.

Until next time.....

Jeffrey B. Stephenson, PP


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.
