I hope that everyone enjoyed a happy and blessed holiday season with family and friends. It was wonderful to share the holidays with so many brother Nobles at the various club and unit Christmas parties. What a great time to catch up with old friends and make some new ones.

I would like to congratulate Illustrious Sir Leroy Woods and his Lady Gini on an outstanding year. After years on the Divan you have earned some time off, but don’t be strangers. Zem Zem needs you to stay involved.

The annual meeting is upon us. Election of Officers, representatives and trustees will be Saturday, January 4, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. You must have your 2020 dues card to attend this meeting.

All club and unit secretaries must submit lists of officers and year-end financial reports to the Recorder’s office. If any club or unit has not updated their bylaws in the past three years, this also needs done. Even if no changes are necessary, please make this determination and submit them in the near future.

The clubs and units meeting will be held at Mercer County Shrine Club on Saturday, January 25, 2020. Raffle tickets, calendar books and updates will be available at this time.

Thank you to everyone who has paid his dues. It would be great to not have any suspensions this year, so please make every effort to assist the Divan in this process of collecting unpaid dues.

Be part of “Team Zem Zem”; actively support our Temple and help raise money for Shriner’s Hospital for Children. After all, this is what we are all about.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance.

Remember your Blue Lodge Obligations

Timothy M. Hofius, PP



It’s that time of year to start thinking about year end gifts from the clubs and units. The Divan is requesting that gifts be given to the Building Fund and Nobles In Need Fund.
