Nobles & Ladies:
I would like to remind all the nobles of our upcoming paper drive on Saturday April 21, 2018. I have organized the necessary paper work for each of the units and will be distributing them to those who did not pick them up at our last stated meeting. Each package contains an information form to be filled out and returned to the Shaddai office so that we can assure that each unit has the necessary number of papers, plaques or plates. I have also included the plaque/plate order forms and plaque receipts.
Brothers we need to all become more involved in the sale of these plaques, it is the future of the paper sale. Each and every one of us knows someone who owns a business that would be more than happy to contribute to the children’s hospital. Even your doctor, dentist, etc., all you have to do is ask. For those of you who wish not to stand in one of our busy roadways, we will be working the doors at the Front Beach Road Wal Mart from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. I have a sign-up sheet for those who would like to participate. If I can get at least 16 nobles to work this location, each would only have to take up one hour of their time. That is not too much to ask of any shriner, whoever you may be. After all, isn’t that what we are supposed to be doing, helping the children in our hospitals. Our transportation fund depends on the money raised at this paper sale, so let’s all pitch in and make a difference.
Just another reminder of the 2018 Whole Beef Raffle, brother John Wheat is currently distributing tickets to all the units. The drawing for this raffle is not until November, so we have plenty of time to sell these tickets. The tickets practically sell themselves, but you have got to make people aware of it. Our Illustrious Potentate would like to see us double the amount we raised last year. I believe that this goal is definitely attainable. We have started the sale of the tickets well ahead of when we began last year, giving us nearly 10 months to sell them. If we all sold just 20 tickets each that would total up to 12,000 tickets yielding $20,000 for the general fund. So let’s all get busy selling those Whole Beef Raffle tickets!
May God Bless Each & Everyone of You, My Beloved Brethren
