Greetings Brother Prophets and Past Monarchs!
Our October meeting is on the 20th at 7:30PM at Old West Lodge in Newhall, CA! PLEASE ARRIVE WEARING A HALLOWEEN COSTUME WITH YOUR FEZ. Looking forward to the best dressed Prophet!
As the meeting is a couple days away, I wanted to remind everyone to keep all those who recently suffered due to the fire, shooting, flood and such in your thoughts and offer assistance if you can. Also, take a minute and appreciate all you have because within seconds, it could be lost at any time.
Our next brunch is going to be on Sunday, November 12th 10AM – location TBD at this coming meeting! I am open to all suggestions and ideas!
I’d also like to take some time to organize another Magic Castle day with our wives to take place in November. We can discuss that during the meeting as well.
I was approached by several people outside of the MOVPER regarding our Ceremonial which means, we have attention which will hopefully lead to increased membership. As always, please be mindful of who you refer to our Grotto and decide if they would be a good fit for our group and the good of the Order instead of just increasing our numbers. Each and every Prophet and Past Monarch must always think about the good of the Grotto and the members before saying or doing something. We are Masons first and must be role models for other Masons and non-Masons in public and within lodge. Each Prophet took an Oath, in a friendly sort of way, to act and contribute toward our Grotto and make it a worthwhile Master Mason’s Playground all in good fun.
Chief Justice and I had a discussion to bring the Ritual back and limit initiations to twice a year. It seems like a great idea as we will eventually become a finally-tuned Ceremonial Machine!
Hoping to see everyone including our newly initiated Prophet’s at this Friday’s meeting! I have been attending regularly for many years now and always enjoy the company of my Brother Prophets, and our new Prophets will see exactly what that means during this coming meeting and ones following that.
North Hollywood Lodge’s Masquerade Ball has been cancelled unfortunately and will resume planning for 2018’s date (TBD).
If you can’t make it to the meeting, we will have our regular 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!
