My Fellow Prophets,
Another new year is upon us, and with it, my turn as the leader of our rag-tag group of gentlemen.
First off, let me say how truly honored I am to be the Monarch of the Grotto (may God have mercy on your soul). This organization is truly something special. I honestly would never consider wearing any other fez.
One of the biggest goals I have for this year is to hopefully boost our numbers. This year I am planning on visiting various Lodges to spread the word about our awesome group! If you ever find yourself visiting a different Lodge, let ‘em know about us! If we can get at least 5 new members to join, I’d would think that to be a great success.
Other things to look forward to this year will include our Summer BBQs (and much later in the year, our Christmas visits) with the UCP homes – I am hoping that we have another great turnout this year – and perhaps another trip to the Magic Castle somewhere in the middle? Only if Ralph is going…
I have to say, joining the Grotto was one of the best decisions I have made. The fellowship and amusement of our group never ceases to amaze me. From the special events with the UCP organization to the ever-entertaining meetings, to Chi-Chi’s afterwards and everything in between, I always await that fourth Wednesday of the month with a sense of excitement.
Yours in Fellowship,
Levi Quintana – Monarch of Cinema Grotto (that sounds pretty cool!)
