Greetings Brother Prophets and Past Monarchs!
I have really been pleased with how our fraternity has been growing and evolving throughout the course of the last eight months. Big things are happening, our bond as brethren has strengthened and we continue to grow our fellowship and fraternity by our activities both inside and outside of the lodge!
First and foremost I would like us to take a moment to absorb the recent terrorist activities that have occurred in the USA and elsewhere in the world, all sparked by the very thing that is meant to tear apart the love we have for one another as a people. I as Monarch of this Grotto condemn such actions and promote Sympathy and Good Fellowship. We as Masons and as Grotto Prophets must lead by example in our daily actions throughout life and hope others will follow. Always remember that we are role models for everyone out there, be in on the road or in the streets!
For the first time in 25 years, Cinema Grotto under my leadership and being spearheaded by our very own Chief Justice Michael Schneider will be putting on the full form ceremonial, on Friday September 29, 2017 at Palm Springs Lodge #693! Our first read through was a lot of fun and I’m certain our upcoming practice on September 2nd (Hosted by WGA President, Dan Hood) will be even better! We still have parts open if anybody is interested!
It looks like we’ve set the next Magic Castle event for Saturday, September 16th. All initiated prophets are invited to attend. Please contact Master of Ceremonies, David Taylor, for more information. It’s always been good fun and I’m really looking forward to it once again! (El Ropo was my favorite!)
North Hollywood 542 (my Blue Lodge) will be holding a first ever Masquerade Ball featuring a silent auction and as a member, I am extending an invitation to my Grotto Family! It will be held October 28th 2017 at North Hollywood Lodge. We will be having a silent auction during the Ball with the sales going directly to charity and I have asked my lodge to feature Cinema Grotto as one of the charities!!
Our UCP BBQ at the Dronfield House occurred this past Saturday, August 19th, and we had an amazing turnout! Kudos to C.J. Schneider for all the hard work organizing the BBQs and the ceremonial!
Hoping to see many of you Prophets at our next meeting on September 15th and for post-meeting fellowship at Toppers restaurant! If anybody needs a ride to the meeting, please do not hesitate to ask your fellow Prophets!
Shirts & Fez!
