From the Venerable Master – August 2012

Bob McNamara, 32⁰ KCCH Venerable MasterMy Brothers,

I hope that all is well with you and yours and that you are enjoying your summer. Adding to your summer enjoyment will be our Stated Meeting on August 6th featuring and honoring our own Ill. Raymond D. Godeke, 33⁰ IGH, and Personal Representative for our Valley. He is also the Illustrious Grand Master of the Cryptic Masons of California and the Grand Pursuivant of the Grand Lodge of California. I’m not sure how we need to address him with all of his esteemed titles, but hopefully he will fill us in on that. It should be a fun evening so plan to attend.

Continuing the summer enjoyment will be our annual joint picnic with El Bekal Shrine at Kiwanis Land in Garden Grove on August 19th from 11 am to 3 pm. Directions and a map are included on another page. One of this year’s highlights for the picnic will be the Farmer John’s Hot Dog, featuring three different kinds of hot dogs. The El Bekal Steel Band will be part of the entertainment. It will be fun day and you are encouraged to at-tend.

Remember the Feast of Tishri Dinner on Saturday, September 15th, with our SGIG , Ill. William F. Stovall, 33⁰, as the speaker for the evening. And then following that will be our second Super Breakfast of the year on Sunday morning, September 16th at the DeMolay Center in Anaheim from 9 am to 12 pm.

Please support your Valley and attend these fun events!

See you at the Valley,

Bob McNamara, 32⁰ KCCH

Venerable Master
