Hi Team Antioch! Hope this note finds you well.
 
The momentum at Antioch, even stronger after our Circus, seems to be continuing. Tuesday is a great example. I visited with the Brass Band and they are basking in the glow of the great turnout they had at the Circus. They are also excited about the Fish Fry and upcoming parade season. Next, I met with the Ambassadors. We enjoyed a great discussion about Antioch, their unit and building a plan for the future. It was very positive and informative. Finally, I caught a few minutes with the 4 Wheelers as they were getting ready to leave.  One word:  FUN! We talked about the Circus, Antioch and how much fun they are having. Yay!

CALLING ALL ANTIOCH SHRINERS, THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Friday, March 7, 2014 at 6:00pm Antioch is taking over Hara Arena and building our partnership with the DAYTON DEMONZ professional hockey team.  Our Shrine Night with the Demonz, Sunday, January 26th was fun and rewarding but, the weather interfered with our activities. However, the Demonz were so impressed with Antioch that they asked us to perform for them on Friday, March 7th at 6:00pm!  THEY LOVED THE SHRINERS!

 

So, mark your calendars!  We need YOU.  All of you!  We hope to Post the Colors, entertain with music, clown around, show off our motor corps, race around the ice, play cops and robbers, show off our Colonels and Clan and IMPRESS EVERYONE WITH OUR FAMILY, OUR FRIENDSHIP AND OUR FEZ!

 

Show your Fez for FREE parking AND FREE admission!!!!!  Let's be Antioch Proud!
