As the song begins “OH WHAT A NIGHT”.... we had last night with our new members and their ladies. It began with a special Short Form Ceremonial. Congratulations to Tim Haggard and his lady Angela, for joining our great fraternity! Tim had military obligations last Saturday during installation ceremonies, and is being deployed the first part of April! We welcome them both and are very proud of his service to our country!!
The Divan ladies allowed us to join them with their Ladies Orientation program that they typically do when we have ceremonials. However, with last December’s ceremonial at the Masonic Temple, and a few short forms we chose last night to bring them together. We had over 20 new members there and the Divan ladies did a FANTASTIC job of explaining Antioch, the Shrine, and our Hospitals. (We are showing Tampa again we are practicing what we have learned at the Imperial membership seminars)
We had a couple of our new members ready to join units and clubs and they also were buying circus tickets for next week. A wonderful evening! Finally THANK YOU to Rick & Teresa for the meal last night!
