With the summer winding down, we can all look forward to…our August meeting on the 27th! No, we are not dark this month. So, come out and get your Masonic fix! It will mark the return of our secretary, Jim Jarnagin, from his lengthily vacation.
During my time as Monarch, August has really been the most memorable (so far). Because of the generous work and donations from our prophets and their families, we were able to “raise” a canopy for the UCP Dronfield home.
The subsequent BBQ was a blast. The residents really enjoyed themselves too. That is really why we do any of this—for them. To completely establish the canopy, a lantern was signed by all the prophets who helped build the canopy, and placed at the top. Hopefully, the residents and the wonderful nurses that aid them, will enjoy the canopy. There was even talk about building ANOTHER canopy next year to fully enclose the patio!
I would like to make a shout-out of sorts to Jacob Haroutunian. Jacob, who is in the process of becoming a Mason, was invited to the building day by Prophet Billy Campbell and was a great asset. As a result (further down the road), he has expressed a great interest in joining Cinema Grotto. In my opinion, he will be welcomed with open arms. Thank you again, Jacob!
I hope to see y’all at our August meeting – cheerful and ready to make fun of Chief Justice Chad Goertz!
Yours in Fellowship,
Joey Lamberti – Monarch of Cinema Grotto
