Spring has finally arrived and fundraising activities are taking place throughout the jurisdiction. Steakfries, poker runs, bingo nights not only help our clubs and units raise needed funds, but they are tremendous opportunities to invite brother Masons to join us in Shrinedom.

Spring is also the season to look forward to ZemZem’s Potentate’s party to be held June 1. The Walk for Love will be held earlier in the day at Presque Isle and Community Days will be held at Erie Shriner’s Hospital on Sunday, June 2. Why not plan to make a weekend of it?

Many of our Nobles and their families have never been to our Eriehospital. If Disney is the “happiest place on earth”, then the Erie Shriner’s Hospital for Children is the Disneyworld of medical facilities.

A tour of the motion evaluation lab and the EOS low dose x-ray room will demonstrate the state-of-the-art capabilities of our hospital. How can we explain our philanthropy to people if we haven’t visited the facility ourselves? Please try to visit our Erie hospital on June 2 when staff and a few patients will be available for tours and to answer questions. Lunch will be available at Zem Zem later in the afternoon.

Thanks to all the Nobles who have paid their dues and to all who attended the April Quarterly meeting.

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.
