As we start the New Year, I truly hope it will be a “Beary” Good Year for the Temple as well as personally for every Noble and their families as well for the Children we help. One of my main goals this year is to try to get our membership to be active and attend as many functions as possible. We are a group of many with a group of few running the show - so to speak. I hope to “spark” people’s interest that we do have a fun time here at Al Bedoo Shrine.
My plea to all our membership for the start of the New Year is to come and come as often as you can to the dinners and Stated Meetings. If you are a new Noble or maybe not so new and feel you don’t know anyone, the best way is to just come and soon Al Bedoo will feel like home; for we truly are one big family.
I want to thank all of you for your support in my journey in becoming Al Bedoo’s Potentate and hope for your continued support through this year. 2016 seemed a long ways out there and behold here it is, with the help of the nobility and the Divan I will strive to fulfill this position the best I can. Lady Fern and I want to wish you all Happy New Year!
