Michael George Hosler, Grand Monarch
My Dear Prophets and Ladies,
I cannot say “Thank You” enough, or loud enough, to show you all how much Jan and I have enjoyed visiting each Grotto and Association over the past 8 years. ALL of you have extended more hospitality, and have went above and beyond what was needed to make us feel welcomed everywhere we went. The hotels and food have been really great as well. Our travels have taken us across this Great Country of ours to visit old friends and to make new ones.
My convention is coming upon us way too fast and we have a very good time planned for all of you. From the Mary M. Miller Riverboat Cruise, to Churchill Downs, the Red Tassel Party and even a fantastic military opening with the USO Show. Please come and share our fun, and don’t forget the two important meetings on Thursday and Friday. Also, remember to visit the caucus rooms to vote on the new Captain of the Guard.
Don’t forget the “Training Program” at the Convention on Friday. This year not only is it open to the District Deputies and the Secretaries, but ALL PROPHETS are encouraged to attend. Please bring with you all your ideas, suggestions, recommendations, etc. to make this training session beneficial to ALL.
Our deepest thanks to Jim and Linda Bainter for their great help putting this convention together. Don’t forget your military outfits for the Grand Opening ( I can’t even get a leg into my fatigues!).
Your Grand Monarch
Michael G. Hosler
