Potentate’s Notes January 2024

I can’t believe 2023 is gone already. Hope you all had a wonderful and safe holiday season.

Our number one fund-raiser (the Cir­cus) is just around the corner. Can’t wait to see all the clowns, camels, tigers, acro­bats, etc. Please tell all your friends, co­workers and family about it, so we can have a sell out show this year. If you would like to help, please contact the Circus Director and attend meetings, as they have been going on for a few months now.

Tickets are now available for pickup at the office for the Sportsmen’s Extravaganza, which will be held downtown again at the Glass City Center. This is another great fund-raiser for our organization and needs your support to help sell tickets.

Once again, membership is our true key. We are now closer to 900 vs. 1,000 members. As a reminder, if you can’t afford a lump sum payment of your yearly dues, please contact the office or the Potentate to set up monthly payments for as little as $14/month.

I would like to thank Tiffin Shrine Club and Illustrious Sir Jeff Kuhn for hosting Zenobia Shrine’s Christmas Party, as it was a great event and a nice time had by all. All other Christmas parties of units that were attended to by the Divan were very gracious hosts. I would also like to thank Tiffin Shrine Club for sponsoring the hospitality at installation of officers.
Sunday, January 14, at 2:00 p.m., we will be having a long-term planning session to discuss the future of Zenobia. All are welcome, as we want members to be included on a committee head and not just the Divan members.

Coming up on Saturday, February 3, we will have our annual Walleye game event. This is ALWAYS a great event. Invite your family, friends and neighbors – the more the merrier! See the flyer for various price options. Tickets can be purchased on our website for this event.

Last, but not least, if there is anyone or any lodges or advertis­ers that have questions on the Masonic Bulletin, please reach out to me directly so we can finalize any problems that may remain.

Hope you all have a prosperous New Year and thank you for the continuous support of Zenobia Shrine!!
