Zaman Volunteers Unit

The next event at Zaman Grotto will be the monthly (Stated) meeting of the Zaman Volunteers unit on Saturday, February 11.

This event will start with an 8am breakfast, followed by the meeting.

As the Volunteers have been “volunteered” to cook at the Grottoes of North America Supreme Council meeting coming up in Orlando, Florida in early July, the members of the Unit have much to discuss.

If you happen to attend the Supreme Council meeting, look for them cooking on Thursday, July 5th.

All members of Zaman Grotto are invited to attend the breakfast & meeting. Dues for this Unit are very low and you will have some great fellowship and fun in it if you participate.
