Shrine Memorial this Sunday 11-20-11

Al Chymia Shrine will host an annual memorial for Shriners who passed away in the past year on Sun 11-20-11 at 2pm.

As some of these deceased Shriners were also Prophets (members) of this Grotto, we are invited to attend and Monarch Charlie Moore authorized us to wear our Grotto fez.

Oliver Louis Conner & Crue Russell, who were long-time very active Zaman Grotto Prophets, were among these deceased Shriners.

We will also be there paying respect for all other Grotto members & their wives & family who passed away this year.
