Happy New Year fellow Prophets!
I would like to start by giving all of you my appreciation and gratitude for allowing me to lead this fine group of gentlemen throughout this important year, Cinema Grotto’s 70th Anniversary. I am truly honored. The comradery and fellowship felt among this group is really second to none. Like many of you, I belong to a multitude of Masonic organizations. Each of the appendant groups have their own specific appeal, but it’s hard to top the truly awesome times we have together at Cinema Grotto.
This year, we look forward to our BBQ’s with our friends at the UCP homes, at least one Magic Castle trip, and I will be planning a very nice event to celebrate Cinema’s 70th Anniversary. Let us also not forget the events planned for the Western Grotto Association. Our beloved secretary, Jim Jarnigan, has a very nice event planned in Williams, AZ. Williams is an amazing place, rich in history, and epitomizes the Route 66 experience.
I greatly admire the close-knit group members we have in our Grotto. I always enjoy seeing those same faces that attend meetings, month after month. While growth is key to our survival, I would like to simply target 5 new members for 2015. While recruiting large numbers of candidates is always our goal, if we can get 5 new dedicated prophets, who look forward to every meeting as much as the rest, I think we’ll position ourselves for a strong legacy to come.
Yours in Fellowship,
Chad Goertz, Monarch of Cinema Grotto
