Thank you to everyone who came out to the United Cerebral Palsy BBQ on July 21st. We had a great time!
A Big THANK YOU to Prophet Ed Gonzaga for arriving early and helping me set up for the BBQ. It was a huge help! I hope to see more of our officers following his lead and arriving early at the next one to help. You rock, Ed!
Thank you for all of those who helped clean up and put everything away. Many hands make light work!
I enjoyed flippin’ burgers and dogs while our good natured prophets chatted it up with the residents and helped to spread good fellowship!
We have our final United Cerebral Palsy BBQ on Saturday, August 18th at the Dronefield House from 11 am – 2 pm (officers please be there at 10:30 to help set up).
Looking forward to seeing you all there,
What a great Ceremonial we had last month! We got great feedback from our newest Prophets as they engaged in the impish delight of the Grotto and our collective laughter echoed throughout the Enchanted Realm. Good fellowship was had by all!
My favorite part of the day was sharing laughs with our newest members as we hung out in the parking lot and made memories through the ceremonial. We are here to have fun and enjoy spending time with one another. The Ceremonial provided an opportunity for just that!
If you have any ideas for ways that you think we can increase the fun and goodfellowship at Cinema Grotto, email me at email@example.com.
This is your Grotto. Make it awesome!
Spring: a time of rebirth, merriment, flowery things and . . . The SPRING CEREMONIAL!
On Friday, April 20th we will have a shortened stated meeting followed by rehearsal for our Ceremonial. If you have a role (or would like a role) in the Grotto Ceremonial please be there.
Our Ceremonial will take place on April 28th. The plan is for us to rehearse at the stated meeting and on the day of the ceremonial with no additional days, but this can only work if you show up for the rehearsal. Please don’t miss it.
You still have time to find the most fun loving Masons you know and get a petition in their hand so they can enter the Enchanted Realm on April 28th.
Please shoot me an email confirming that you will be at rehearsal so we can plan accordingly.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what makes Cinema Grotto special.
It’s hard to put a finger on what makes our Realm so Enchanted, but there is one thing we offer to our Prophets that is unlike anything else in the Masonic world: our Ceremonial.
As you know, we awoke the Ceremonial from hibernation in October and the Fellowship has been growing ever since! Our last meeting was very well attended and I’m really getting a sense of increased activity in our Grotto. Hooray!
I’d like to get as many Prophets involved in our April Ceremonial as possible. We need actors for both speaking and non-speaking parts, a sound operator and a light operator. If you like having fun and want to be a part of welcoming Prophets into the Enchanted Realm, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no limit to how many Prophets can be involved in our Ceremonial. As always, the more Prophets, the merrier!
If you know a Brother that loves Fun and Fellowship, let him know about Cinema Grotto, give him a petition, and let the good times roll!
Grotto on, Prophets!
Cinema Grotto is a place where we can get together, have a laugh, and remember what it’s like to walk on the sunny side of the street. Often, we’ve spent so long walking in the rain that we forget that there’s another way to travel. That’s where you come in!
Each month we meet in the Enchanted Realm and remind each other what Good Fellowship is all about, but Good Fellowship requires Good Fellows . . . who are Hip. (See what I did there).
Come to our Grotto meetings and help spread the sunshine around. The Enchanted Realm is less enchanted without you so get thee to the Grotto, prophets!
Call or text a Prophet and invite him to ride with you to our monthly meeting. Some good company and a few laughs can also get you access to the carpool lane. Win/Win!
If any Prophet would ever like to ride with me to a meeting, please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com
Grotto on, Prophets!
Donald Gipson – The happiest Prophet in the Realm!
With summer right around the corner, we are one step closer to our first of two summer BBQs for the UCP homes! Yes, we are technically celebrating it one day before summer officially begins, but let’s face it, in Southern California, if it’s not November, December, or January, it’s summer. There is always a good time to be had at a Grotto event as it brings us together in the spirit of fellowship. The amazing thing about these BBQs is that we get to share that same spirit of fellowship with the wonderful residents of the UCP homes, and that really brightens their day. I know I speak for a lot of us when I say that the BBQ events (along with the Christmas events) are really the highlight of our yearly Grotto goings-on. This year, it would be awesome to see a big turnout from our fellow Prophets. It wouldn’t just be appreciated by the Officers of Cinema Grotto, but also appreciated by the residents who really look forward to this every year.
Yours in Fellowship,
Levi Quintana, Chief Justice
