Michael George Hosler, Grand Monarch
Dear Prophets and Ladies,
It has been a great pleasure in being your Grand Monarch so far this year. Jan and I have traveled the Realm meeting old friends an making new ones.
We have been to all the Associations from Oregon, to Massachusetts, to Florida, to Texas, to New York, to Chicago, to the Midwest and to Ohio and a few places in between.
All of you have filled our hearts with happiness, food and fellowship! My love for the Grotto goes as deep as my love for each of you. Visiting these Associations renews my enthusiasm for the growth and future of the Grottoes. I wish I could take all of you with me on these trips and show you the bright side of Grottoing. I believe the Grotto will be stronger in the near future.
All of our District Deputies will be getting $150.00 if you attend the National Convention and the seminar for training. I am so proud of you who do this on your own dime. Keep up the great work and don’t forget to send your reports to the office.
For all of you Veterans, thank you again for your service. You know you will always have a special place in my heart.
Thanksgiving and Christmas is coming fast and so is my convention in Louisville, Kentucky. I hope all of you will come and enjoy this occasion with Jan and I to have a great and joyous week together.
Don’t forget the Foundation and the work they do and don’t forget to call the office and wish the girls and Skip Merry Christmas!
Your Grand Monarch,
