My fellow prophets,
I can’t believe that it is already October. Where did the last year go?
The fall season, which streams right into the holidays, is usually a time for travel for many Masons. For us in California, this is the time that we gear up to travel to Grand Lodge and attend the Annual Communication. Actually, this event is being held this upcoming weekend (October 4th – 6th) in San Francisco. I know many of my fellow brothers and prophets are attending. And, I wish them all safe passage to and from the event.
Also, the Western Grotto Association is holding their annual event from October 9th through the 13th at Saddlewest Casino in Pahrump, NV. These events are always a blast!
This November and December, our monthly meetings will be held on the 2nd Wednesday of those months, as compared to the 4th Wednesday of the month. My prophets and I voted for this change due to the holiday season. And, why not? We should be spending the holidays with our families and enjoying their company as much as possible (maybe even traveling as well). Please plan for those meetings accordingly.
On a more personal note – a prophet of Cinema Grotto and our current Captain of the Guard, Shane Bailey, is moving to Virginia this month. Shane has always been a real pleasure to be around. North Hollywood Masonic Lodge is throwing him a “Send Off” party on October 12th (Saturday @ 7:30 pm). If you can make it, you’re in for a fun time.
I look forward to seeing everyone at the October meeting – here is the Facebook event page for additional details:
Happy Halloween everyone!
Yours in fellowship,
Monarch Dan Hood
