Our December Meeting, will be our annual Christmas Dinner, held at the American Legion. Reservations are a must, as we have to have a head count.

I close this newsletter with a heavy and sad heart. The passing of Jean Bollis, who was a great stalwart of the Grotto and Grottoettes and will be missed by all. My sympathy and condolences go out to Wilbur and his family.

JANUARY 2018


MONARCH:

Hi Prophets and Ladies:

Happy New Year to all.

We hope the new year brings more health and happiness to all in the coming year. We will need your help and participation.

At December's meeting, it was decided to hold January and February meetings at 2:30 PM with a luncheon starting at 1:00 PM, on the third Thursdays.

This change will benefit our members as well as the American Legion. Driving to and from will be much easier and safer. The Grottoettes were also in favor of the decision.

Kismet Grotto's web site has been updated by PM Dale Hill, thanks goes out to Dale for keeping up the web site. Check it out at www.kismetgrotto.com

PM Tony Bongiorno has stepped up as Master of Ceremonies for the upcoming year, thanks Tony.

The meetings are informal and relaxed so you can feel “retired”.

We need speakers or demonstrators to visit the grotto, any suggestions?

It is time to start planning for the Supreme Council Session “Racy to Indy”. Info is in the Grotto Magazine.

Get out of the house and join us for lunch and fellowship, by driving the winter blues away. If you need a ride, please contact me and I will see if we can accommodate you.

I wish you all a Happy New Year. Bundle up and keep warm.

NOVEMBER 2017

MONARCH:

Dear Prophets and Ladies: 

To start with, I wish you prophets and your families, a very happy Thanksgiving Holiday. May you push yourselves away from the table with a full belly and give a thank you to the Lord.

Our October meeting was well attended, thanks to all who attended.

The storage shed clean out should be accomplished soon, before the weather gets too bad. We had 8 prophets and 1 Lady, who volunteered to help. The clean out is scheduled for November 11th, with a rain date of November 18th. Time for both days 10:00 AM.

Thank you to the current officers, who have volunteered to stay in their positions for next year, also we need a few more prophets to step up and help fill positions needed to meet the quota of officers.

The Christmas Party is on for this year, at Venango Valley, on Wednesday December 13th, cost will be $10.00 per person, balance will be paid by Kismet Grotto. This is Kismet's way of wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. The party is open to all prophets and ladies.

Reservations and payment are a must, and must be received by December 1st, we need an accurate number of those attending. Send reservations to Dave Ingalls, 23500 Griffith Rd., Cambridge Springs PA 16403. Reservations can also be made at our next stated meeting on November 16th.
