My Fellow Prophets!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!
I hope everybody had a great Christmas / Holiday season and is looking forward to a great 2017!
Our first meeting of the New Year is at 7:30 pm on January 20, 2017, at Old West Lodge in Newhall. I would like to thank Past Monarch Levi Quintana for leading us through another successful year, steadily growing in numbers and of course our internationally known fellowship at Chi Chi’s where Prophet Tim Lahr recruits Farmer’s Only Members and we have a steady stream of onions from Prophet Ralph Morton! Always a great time with you all there! I encourage everyone to bring families as well if possible!
We shall be graced by our amazing Past Monarch, Joey Lamberti as Supreme Council District Deputy in his official visit and PM Dan Hood, NEW President of the Western Grotto Association! I smell a bourbon/grape juice tasting coming very soon at his lovely home! (With or without his permission! )
The Grotto has always been great, really it is such a great Grotto, ask anybody that knows about it and they’ll tell you how great it really is but I’m going to make the Grotto Great-er again! New Prophets already in line to join, a steady stream of events lined up, our BBQ’s, charity dental events, family events, a fund raiser and hopefully a trip out of state!! I would also like to resume going to Blue Lodges again to raise awareness about our organization and increase in numbers!
This shouldn’t be a shock but I am requiring ALL members to come in their Fez and Grotto shirt (Thank you to brother Gonzaga for assisting with the orders!) for every single meeting and event or prepare to receive a $5 penalty each time, no exceptions. In the month of November, I will be utilizing the total penalties accumulated and put towards a surprise Grotto shirt/red-tie event!
I hope to see everyone at our first meeting of the year prepared for a great time and year ahead! As a reminder, please pay your hefty Grotto dues to remain in good standing and get On the Line (online) to CinemaGrotto.com for regular updates!
Yours in Fellowship,
Monarch of Cinema Grotto
