I can’t believe we’re almost halfway through the year. Time flies when you’re Monarch and having…[Past Monarchs will be able to fill in this blank very well].
At our meeting in April, we introduced two brothers to the realm, and they’ve definitely been changed forever by it. Once again, a big Grotto welcome to Prophets Billy D. Campbell and Carl Norman Manabat!
This past Saturday, Cinema Grotto attended a great event at the 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant: Murder Mystery Theater! I was joined by prophets Armen Adzhemyan (with wife Mary), Jim Laage (with wife Carmen), Chris Plucinski, Jim Cunningham (with wife Cynthia) and Richard Landon (with wife Rita). A big thank you to Brother Eric Sharp (soon-to-be prophet?) for the invitation. It was evident by the performances that a lot of time and care is put into the production as a whole. And, because of that, a great time was had by all!
On a more personal level, one of our most admired and beloved prophets, Ralph Morton, has been having some serious health issues. As brothers, it is important that are there for those in sickness and distress. Please think good thoughts for Ralph and his family, and maybe give him a call (or message him on Facebook – he is an avid user). If you know Ralph, he’ll probably be cracking jokes during your entire conversation. If you need any of his contact information, please let me know.
I hope everyone has a lovely May. See you at our next meeting on the 28th.
Word to the wise: DO NOT LISTEN to Kevin Kordes, Anthony Sandino, Roger Puckett or Chad Goertz when it comes to the dates of the meetings. You’ve been warned!
Yours in Fellowship,
Joey Lamberti – Monarch of Cinema Grotto
