bahia fez watercolorThe Summer ceremonial is next weekend, June 6, 7 and 8. There is quite a bit going on and we want to make a good first impression on the incoming members. The agenda and more info is below.

If you are planning on attending the Banquet on Saturday Night, PLEASE RSVP today! Cut off for RSVP's is midnight Thursday (Stated Meeting) so that we can have an accurate head count for the caterer. CLICK HERE TO RSVP

The Friday night event is simply a "welcome to the shrine" party and is a chance for new candidates to meet some of the members and learn some info about our many clubs and units. Come on out and enjoy some refreshments and fellowship. If you are attending, please bring a dish to share. This will also be a showcase of units/clubs. So, please make sure you have a representative (or two) on hand to talk about your unit or club.

Saturday is when the "fun" happens. Candidates arrive at 9am so we can start promptly at 10. Wear your shrine or unit/club uniform. Your lady is invited to attend the ladies luncheon where she will learn about what it means to be a shriners lady and enjoy a great lunch. Tickets Available HERE.

After all the fun and learning, you will be invited to attend the Moslem Feast (burgers and brats) on the patio. The Ladies will join us around 1pm.

When the you've had as much fellowship as you can stand, you are dismissed to go home and get ready for the banquet at 6pm.

If you have any questions or concerns please let me know. I'll be happy to help.
