Welcome to March, the month of Saint Patrick’s Day, March Madness, Yoshi Monte Carlos and the Director Staff Beer Tasting.

I can almost hear the chips mounting up with the anticipation of big winnings. The chips will be turned in for unique prizes and fun will be had by all. Put on your calendar Saturday March 1st and plan to attend the Yoshi Monte Carlos Night.

If it’s March Madness and exotic brews from several craft breweries you are seeking, then the Director Staff Beer Tasting is the place to be on Friday March 28th. I can hardly wait to experience the new and unusual tastes.

As I am writing this page the first week of February, it is too early to determine how well the Circus turned out financially. We do know the weather played a significant factor in attendance. Those who came were entertained by some of the best acts in the country. A special thanks to Steve Trump and his team for their tireless efforts to make the show a success.

Each and every Noble and Lady, who came out in such bad weather to help, ensured that our Circus worked like a well oiled machine. With the weather as rough as it was, we had a tremendous turn out of help and participation THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Your efforts went above and beyond expectations.

Mizpah’s Spring Ceremonial will be April 19th. We will have a First and Second Session. Plan on attending and bring your candidate. Remember membership is every Noble’s responsibility. Help us make great Masons, great Shriners. We will begin at 10:00 am. Afterwards, there will be light snacks and refreshments.

The Sportsman Raffle Kickoff is scheduled for March 18th. Please plan on attending and pickup your tickets to sell. We hope to outdo last year’s event and to help this happen the list of guns has been improved with better quality fire arms.

I am so honored to be part of Mizpah Shrine Temple. We have a hard working dedicated team of Nobles and Ladies who are able to accomplish so much. Both Lady Kathy and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who have worked so hard to make our Circus a success.
