Those folks who study such things will tell you that a group is defined and known by what it does. So, if all a group does is have meetings, you might wonder what’s the point. I know that I have wondered that myself at times.
Until this year, my only involvement with the Grotto was the meetings. So, I never really understood the Grotto.
Now that I have started to help at the rentals and to attend the parties, the dust has cleared, the clouds have parted and it has all become clear:
The Grotto is about HAVING FUN and doing what it takes to have fun.
We have dinner dances every month because they are FUN. We rent the property so other people can have FUN (and provide the funds to help pay our bills). We have meetings to plan the FUN, to discuss the FUN, and to take care of just enough business for the FUN to continue.
Now that I know this, I plan to redo our website from top to bottom to emphasize the FUN.
Already, you can place a reservation for the upcoming dinner dance on our website. Just go to Reservation Form and fill in the boxes and click the Submit button.
Next up on our website (http://zamangrotto.org) will be loads more pictures of the people who have FUN at the Grotto. I have been taking pictures at the dinner dances for the past few months. The best of those will appear on our website. If you have pictures, email them to timgatewood at netscape dot net (spelled out to cut down on spam).
As the current Venerable Prophet, I invite you to join us in the FUN.
Our Early CHRISTMAS PARTY dinner dance on Saturday, November 17th at 7p.m.. Jim Connors (901-283-9684) is host for this event. Cost is $40 per couple, including the steak dinner. Please bring a gift (value of $5 or less) to exchange if you can.
