Thank you all, it is a huge honor to be elected to serve as Potentate for Abou Ben Adhem Shriners in 2020!
I think Brenda & I have a lot of fun planned for ABA this year. We're having several Happy Hours for the Temple, the Members Only Field Trip,St. Pats Parade After Party, Pote's Party we're calling the Pig Dance & Barn Roast with the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Derby Day Party and that's just through the first of May!
My biggest goal for 2020 is for our Fraternity to grow by at least 1 member. I'm calling this Plus 1 in 2020! Our Divan and Membership Line will have the Imperial Referral Cards and if you fill one out they'll give you a Plus 1 pin from ABA. Please, get behind this and let's get ABA growing again.
This summer we will be hosing the Central States Shrine Association annual Ceremonial. Our Temple is already booked with events throughout the whole event. We will be having a Club Crawl at the Temple Thursday September 3rd and hope that we will have everyone across ABA involved. There'll be live music, all the Club & Unit rooms will be open and we think this will become a tradition at CSSA after all our CSSA friends get to experience the fun of an ABA event! IMPORTANT!!! Everyone attending, even if you are working is required to be registered for CSSA! More info coming soon.
Thanks again and Keep Livin the Shrine Life!
