My Fellow Prophets,
Our last meeting was at 7:30 pm on June 16, 2017, Old West Lodge in Newhall, CA followed by Fellowship at our new fixture: Casa Vieja! This was our second time at this restaurant and again we were seated immediately on a Friday night, service was great and the food was delicious!
My Brother Prophets and Past Monarch’s, I understand that it may be inconvenient for us to take time out of our week on a Friday night, once a month to be able to attend Grotto but let’s not fall apart now after all these years of Grotto fellowship and make a valiant effort to attend our July meeting! The past two meetings, I have had to assign attendees to sit in on Grotto Officer seats. Especially if you’re an officer in the line, it is your duty to send me a text at the least and let me know that you are unable to attend the meeting so that I may prepare in advance. It is not fair to those in regular attendance to have to sit around and wait. Please Brethren, make an effort and let’s enjoy our time together for who knows what the future holds.
With that said, summer is here! Full force, heat and all! The meeting went really well, we finally conducted a full read-through of the full form initiation ceremony and with the help of our very talented Prophets, it was quite the spectacle! We laughed, we read, we learned a few things and I believe everyone enjoyed it! I am really looking forward to putting on this ceremony later in the year! With an asset like Prophet Donald Gipson with his awesome acting and reading skills, I am sure it will be a great performance! C.J. Schneider is doing a great job spear-heading the whole thing!
BTW: The UCP BBQ’s are scheduled on July 15 at the Dronfield House and August 19 at the Hubbard House! We always have a great time and the residents and staff really appreciates our attendance! So please make an effort to be at the Dronfield house on the 15th along with me and your fellow Prophets and let’s have another great BBQ!
Hopefully we shall have an update on the Magic Castle Trip during our next meeting, and if we’re be good enough for our PM Roger Puckett to attend!
Cheers Gentlemen! I hope you all had a great 4th of July at the parade and with your loved ones!
As always, Shirts and Fez!
Yours in Fellowship,
