March is here. Can you believe it? That means Spring is only weeks away.

We are attempting some new things this year to bring the nobility to the Temple. The Valentine’s Dance and the Transportation Fundraiser are just a couple of examples. If you have an idea you think might work bring it to our attention. We may just be able to make something happen.

Our clubs and Units also have wonderful, exciting functions throughout the year. Coming in the very near future are the YOSHI Fun Night and Jumping with the Easter Bunny. Some for the adults and some for the kids and the kids in us. Maybe some of you new, or not-so-new Shriners will find a club or unit you want to get involved in through these activities. Read the Allah Bi carefully to learn about upcoming events.

Membership is still our top priority. As I write we have zero petitions for the Spring ceremonial. That is a concern. I know deep inside that you all know young men who are deserving of being brought to the Blue Lodge and the Shrine. We have agreed to host a Grand Master’s One Day Class in conjunction with our own Ceremonial on April 25th. This will be a great exposure for Mizpah and perhaps an opportunity topick up some additional Shriners. Watch for details and how you might be able to help.

Again, watch your Allah Bi. March 18th Pokagon Shrine Club is going to hold their fourth annual Meet & Greet, an excellent opportunity for potential candidates to learn about the entire Masonic family. We must grow in order to provide what I think are the activities and services you expect and deserve. In my mind spring also means rebirth. Let each of us rededicate ourselves to what Shrine means to us.
