Potentate’s Notes February 2023

Greetings Nobles,

I can’t believe it has been six years Lady Melissa and I have been in the Divan line, and am now serving as Zenobia’s 2023 Potentate. It truly is an honor to serve Zenobia and help with our children’s needs.

We had a great New Year party; thank you to Nathan and Kailee Weiker for a great new event. Many of us learned how to play Roulette, Black Jack and Craps, without spending any addi­tional money of our own. It was a fun experience, without blow­ing it at the casino. There were many new faces at this event and we hope to continue to see them at the many other upcoming events.

Lady Melissa and I would like to thank our Chief Aide, Barry and Hallie VanHoozen, and all A-team members for ensuring that those who attended installation were well taken care of by tending bar, serving food, disbursing calendars/pins and helping with setup and tear down. THANK YOU again, it was a wonderful event!!

As we move into 2023, do not forget to buy your Walleye tick­ets and make this another great event. We will be honoring one of our own Nobles as the Hometown Hero, participate in the puck drop and some will get to enjoy a ride on the Fanboni. If you have not been to this event before, you must check it out as it is AL­WAYS a great time!

We will be hosting a luncheon on Wednesday, February 15, at the Shrine, with start time at noon. A light lunch will be provided and Mark Harris will be the guest speaker. This event is open to any Masonic brother. We hope many of you can make it for this gathering of fellowship, and hoping to do this monthly, depending on attendance.

If you know anyone who has interest in cleaning and setting up the temple for events or who may be interested in secretarial/bookkeeping tasks, please reach out to the office for further information. We also will be looking for a new treasurer, as Dave Coy intends to retire from this position in July. Lots of changes coming to Zenobia and we would like to make a smooth transition with all, if able.
