<<< Go Back to Mizpah Shrine News


I don’t know if any of you read the Allah-Bi or what is inside, in April’s issue there are two mistakes. Whoever calls me first, I will buy lunch on Wednesday at noon at Mildred’s Lounge.

March was a full month with lots of activities going on. Beer and Chips had a 120 Nobles and Ladies attending, also the Beer tasting by the Director Staff was well attended. The children really enjoyed the Easter Bunny party put on by the Yoshi.

Mizpah happenings in April are huge! At the Stated Meeting we’re going to serve you fish. It will be the first test for our future Fish Fries. The Hillbillies will be serving. Hope to have about a 100 Nobles try out our new fish dinner. I know a man that did many times.

April 16th is our Spring Ceremonial, beginning at 8:00 am. The ladies will be excused about 10:30 am for their program. Membership Chairman’s Bill Leedy and Bill Bryan would like to see about 21 new Shriners that day.

The membership has to be aware that the Black Camel and those who do not keep their dues current can eventually put Mizpah out of business. We need to head in the right direction. The good or bad direction is all of responsibility. Let’s move forward by getting new members and keeping those we already have.

Upcoming Events:

• Hats off to for the kids. The Ball Committee is working hard for a fun filled evening. Have you made your reservations? It promises to be an evening full of fun and enjoyment. See you there.

• GLSA news about rooms will be talked about by Roger Weaver, PP at the April meeting.

• Did you hear what I heard? Onion sprouts are popping up in Georgia. What a wonderful way to make money in a short time. Ron Harruff, PP needs your orders and your help when onions come in and with some young Nobles to work the Onion trailer at the Temple.

• Sportsman Raffle Chairman Steve Cowan, PP still needs to sell 996 tickets more than last year. He’s a little worried about that, so we need to put a smile on his face by surpassing that amount.

Congratulations to Queen Karen Kippert and her Officers for a wonderful Nile installation.

In closing, “Your Divan is working for you”, your presence is all we ask.

Jerry W Freewalt, Potentate
