Well it looks as if the weather is finally cooperating for the time of year and with that comes parade season. We still only have Three Rivers Parade July 12th and GSLA September 13th on the books. Please contact the Recorder should your summer plans include participation for the Shrine in a local parade.

At the May Stated Meeting we recognized Max Poorman and Dick Munk for their many years serving as the Inner and Outer Guards. When you see them give them a big Thank You for their service to the Nobility and Mizpah Shrine.

We also recognized Ben Kapp for his dedication and endless hours of work during the construction of our new building and the extra efforts he put forth to ensure everything has run smoothly since our move into the new facility.

Noble Mike Coe came to me excited about our new ballroom for which he had an idea to generate enthusiasm, fellowship and an all around good time for our members, ladies and the public. His idea has come to fruition with the Mizpah Summer Dance. The Mizpah Summer Dance has come about through his efforts and will be held Saturday July 26th. He searched and found a band (Press the Glass) who specializes in 60’s and 70’s music. The Divan and myself are looking forward to an enjoyable evening of being with friends and dancing to great music. Please plan on attending this first-time event at the Memorial Way location. Thank you, Mike for your efforts and support to make this event happen.

We will be scheduling the Noble Only Garage Sale at Berry Street soon. As of this writing we have one more Saturday work day to put everything together in one place for easy inspection.

The plan is to have a date to announce during June’s Stated Meeting. Thank you to all who have given us your time (and backs) to help move the vast quantities of items.

This year’s Ball is scheduled for June 14th. Our theme is “Driven for Kids” with a car show atmosphere and the Auburn Based band Choice to provide the entertainment. The Ball Committee has been working hard to make this year’s ball one to be remembered. Please plan on attending.

Fraternally Yours,
