Hi Prophets and Ladies:

Well it happened!!!

The large cones of ice cream from the fair caused it, plus others. I gained five pounds and more notches on my belt. I hope you all didn't get the same disease.

Did you see it? Kismet now has their own permanent name brick on display, along with others, at the Crawford County Fair Grounds. Thanks to PM Dave Ingalls for suggesting and carrying through with the idea.

We also donated $500.00 to Post #52 Vet-Nam Vets, to help defray the costs of mailing Christmas boxes to our armed service members overseas this year.

The PGA fall meeting is creeping upon us, Oct 17th and 18th, at Erepa Grotto. Friday night will be hospitality, Saturday will be meeting and dinner. This will be a joint meeting with the Empire State Grotto Association. This is a good time to support Kismet Grotto and the PGA.

Hi Prophets and Ladies:

“Can you believe it??”

Its fair time already. Hot sausage sandwiches, garbage fries, ice cream and home made pies galore. I feel that I will go from a 42 inch, to a 44 without any problem, but it tastes good.

At our last meeting, we voted to put our name, Kismet Grotto, at the fair for a good many years. It will be a brick in the floor of the old Sportsman Club building, by the number one home show building. Look for it. We are planning other activities for us to do before the year ends.

Don't forget to support the PGA fall meeting in October, at Erepa Grotto. It will be a joint meeting between the PGA and the EGA from New York State.

JULY 2019

Hi Prophets and Ladies:

“WOW” What a picnic.

With all the confusion we had with the time and place (holding the picnic indoors or outdoors) everything turned out super. The fellowship was superb.

Sorry that PM Gerry Davis and Madelyn, had to return home from their trip to Supreme Council Session, due to the passing of PM Gerry's mother. They both have our utmost sympathy and condolences.

PM Dave Ingalls has found a way that we can get Kismet Grotto's out to the people of Crawford County for years to come.

Kismet Grotto will not be dark for the months of July and August. We will continue to have our luncheons. We will continue to have our luncheon through out the rest of the year.

PM Richard Mulcahy, Acacia Grotto, visited us to discuss the possibilty of merging our two grottos together, in the future. More discussions on the topic will need to be done.

Enjoy your summer and try not to get sunburned.

MARCH 2019

MONARCH:

Hi Prophets and Ladies:

Fellowship is what it is all about.

We had a very good luncheon and meeting last month with twenty-two attending. It made me very happy to see how many were there. I believe we all had a good time and fellowship.

Thank you, Thank you (as Gomer would say) to PM Dave Shapter, PPGA for being our color guard and also to his wife Bev for visiting with us. His information about the upcoming PGA spring meeting, April 12th – 14th, at the Red Loin Inn, Harrisburg, was very informative.

Kismet Grotto is sponsoring the spring meeting for him. He will need some help at the meeting, so if you can attend, he would certainly appreciate it. Call PM Dave Ingalls, 720-1424, or myself for more details. Please make reservations by March 15, 2019.

Remember Kismet Grotto was one of the first grotto's to start the association, with PM E.J.(Cork) Randall as the first president.

PM Dave Ingalls will be Monarch for this meeting, as I am scheduled for a Roto-rooter in Pittsburgh that day. Just think, as I am laying on the table, you will be feeding the top end, while they will be looking at my bottom end. Oh well, the cycle of life goes on. Enjoy yourselves, see you in April.

Lunch at 1:00 PM, Meeting at 2:30 PM.

LUNCH MENU
8 oz sirloin steak / choice of potato / green beans or broccoli
Italian sausage burger / fresh cut fries / pub chips or side salad
shrimp & perch basket / fresh cut fries and cole slaw

Fraternally yours,
Bill Latta, Monarch

FEBRUARY 2019

MONARCH:

Hi Prophets and Ladies:

Brrr-Brrr, Boy it has been cold enough to freeze the _____s off a Brass Monkey, if you know what I mean.

We are entering a new year for Kismet, and it is time to arrange your time, so you can attend meetings and help support Kismet Grotto for the next year. You can't beat the fellowship that we have each month.

Sorry we had to cancel our November Meeting, due to bad weather, with the presentation of “scamming the elderly”, it will be given at a Spring Meeting.

Dr. Dave Shapter, and his lady, will be at our Feb Meeting. I believe he will be talking about his upcoming year as President of the PGA. The spring meeting of the PGA will be on April 13, more details to come later.

Want a job?? The Supreme Council is asking any Past Monarch's who might be interested in being a DDGM, to contact them.

Menu for Feb Meeting looks good. Bundle up and come on out, we need your Happy Smiley faces.

Lunch at 1:00 PM, Meeting at 2:30 PM.

Fraternally yours,
Bill Latta, Monarch
