This coming Wednesday at our November meeting, we will be holding elections for the “lucky six” that will be taking the reigns of our Grotto in the coming year. These positions are as follows:
Master of Ceremonies
For the prophets voting for the first time, this may be helpful to know! It is of great importance that we, as a group, decide the future of our grotto.
Firstly, a nominating committee is assigned. Because our Grotto is a progressive line—apart from the secretary and treasurer positions—the next in line is normally scheduled to move up. If you feel someone else will be better suited in any of the six elected positions, you have the right to stand up and nominate him. Any prophet in good standing may elect another, and also vote. Should someone else be nominated, we will hold a closed or open (depends) vote for the position. The votes are tallied, and the gentleman with the most votes is elected.
Because Cinema Grotto is a group that really prides itself on fellowship, we should happily applaud whoever is voted in. Cinema Grotto has been around for almost 70-years because good men have led the charge. Frankly, I think that the prophets were asleep when they made me Monarch. But, hey, I got lucky!
I hope to see a good crowd this Wednesday. Don’t forget: your vote matters!
Yours in Fellowship,
Joey Lamberti – Monarch of Cinema Grotto
