September is upon us and is a busy month for the nobility.

September 6th is our regular Stated Meeting. Please try to attend as this is your Shrine. We want all Nobles to be part of what’s happening and where we are headed. The dinner is going to be a good one; we’ll be serving ham steak, scalloped potatoes, green beans and pumpkin pie.

The 10th through 13th will be GSLA in Fairview, IL. The parade is Saturday the 13th. We are expecting several units to participate.

The 16th will be the Circus kick off. We are looking forward to seeing the nobility turn out for this evening of information, fellowship and food. Just think we will be hosting the 69th Mizpah Shrine Circus.

September 27th will be Our Mizpah Membership Appreciation Barn Party at Bill & Laura Auer’s barn, located just outside of South Whitley. If last year’s event is any indication this year’s event will be a great time. So bring your ladies and join us for another fun filled evening.

As I write this the day after or Augusts’ Stated Meeting it is with heavy heart I must advise the Nobility of Recorder Ellis Ryan’s announcement to not seek re-election for recorder. He has done a magnificent job this year and I want to thank him for his tireless efforts to keep Mizpah, our clubs and units, fund raising efforts and nobility among those in the top echelon of all Shrine Temples.

For those nobles hearing this news for the first time please consider running for election to the Recorder’s office, or if you know of a fellow noble with sound business and financial experience encourage him to throw his hat into the ring. The future of Mizpah is in your hands.

Elections are December 5th.

As a finale note a special meeting was held August 13th for approval to obtain a finale mortgage on the Memorial Way building. The vote was taken and the motion passed. Thank you to the nobles who attended the special meeting.
