Greetings Nobles,

Members - we need to work on selling ourselves to new members to tell our story.

SELL SELL SELL Membership!

If you have not been to our Shrine facility, I would like to encourage you to stop by and enjoy the excellent food, fellowship, and the joy of being with people who are of like mind. When you are here, you add much to our wonderful family and when you are not here, you are truly missed. Your club is open nightly Monday through Thursday from 4:00pm until ?? So stop by and let us enjoy your smile, your jokes, and your hand of fellowship. And don't forget the Lounge is open every Wednesday for lunch from 11:30am to 2:30pm with new lunch specials every week.

Our Ceremonial is November 8th with a starting time of 9:00am and lunch to follow. Please get your petitions in for November's Stated Meeting. Nobles, the motto of a Shriner is "One to replace and One to grow" - have you done your part? Membership! Ask your brother to come join you and enjoy the Shrine.

As we enter into the Christmas season, think about giving to our Transportation Fund. We need your help to keep our vans running and our patients taken care of.

Many years ago during one of our Ceremonials, Von Hoffman shared this quote with me, "Tomorrow is not promised to the young and old alike; for today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one's tight. So if you are waiting on tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret today that you didn't take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss because you were too busy to grant someone what turned out to be their one last wish." So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear, tell them how much you love them and that you'll always hold them dear. Take the time to say "I'm sorry", "Please forgive me", "Thank you", or It's okay". For if tomorrow never comes, you will have no regrets about today.

Thank you
