Illustrious, Most Worshipfuls, Nobles, and Ladies,

The Nobility Ball was a great evening to participate in some fun and festivities. The big room at the Shrine was decorated wonderfully, Ranch Catering presented an excellent meal. The Unit’s and Clubs represented and entertained. Visiting Divan Potentates and Divan Members from El Bekhal and El Zaribah were in attendance. Nobles from our clubs in Baja came up to celebrate with us. The Clowns reintroduced this year’s Potentate Mike George and Lady Donna. Led by caricatures and camels, a refreshed clown cart with everyone in red clown noses, it was a fun and festive entrance! Our MC for the night, the incomparable Rick Carlson kept the program moving along ala Rip Taylor-esq quips and props. Despite the harsh weather we had more than 150 fraternal brothers, ladies and friends in attendance! Huge thanks to the many members of the planning committees, The hard work paid off in the execution. We hope you enjoyed the teaser photos at the top.

The March Al BahrOMeter (link at the bottom) is filled with information for the month. However, please keep your eyes peeled for emails; and check the online calendar for the latest and great information from your Shrine.

First event of the month is the St Patrick’s Day Parade followed by the Corned Beef and Cabbage Fundraiser. Saturday 11 March, 11a-2p A mistake was made in costing out the event; and the cost is actually $20 per person. This will make it a true fundraiser and not a fund-loser. Come out enjoy some good food in the spirit of St Patrick’s Day and of course the fellowship that we all joined the Shrine to be a part of.

There is also a special property meeting scheduled for 1PM on Saturday 25 March 2023. This meeting is to share important information that directly impacts the nobility. Please add it to your calendar for your participation!

It’s another great year to  be a Shriner! However, you can’t be part of the fun, if you don’t come out! Keep your eye on the calendar there is plenty of fun and fellowship to be a part of!
