Well, there seems to be a touch of fall in the air the last few weeks. I have heard some of the snow birds have been thinking of setting their sites on a warmer atmosphere. We wish them the best.

Over the last few months, I have been chatting about some of our members who have been in the band for a number of years. This month, I am going to recognize a Noble who has been a member of Zem Zem Shrine for 47 years. He is a current member of the Valley of New Castle and a member of Sharpsville Blue Lodge #517 for about the same number of years. His name is Rob- ert “Bob” Patterson. He is also a member of the Oriental Band for about the same number of years. Bob played a drum and gave us a lot of support for the horns. He has been married to Maxine for a number of years, probably in the decades. I would like to thank him for his efforts over the years. He has attended a number of functions and Zem Zem Shrine, MASOBA Jamborees, and VA Beach.

By the time this article hits the press, parades will be just about over. Conneaut Lake will be left. The band will be there to sere- nade the crowd. We are always out to please the kids and the young adults. Most of us are considered young.

The “Sportsman’s Spectacular” was a success with some very happy winners. The Christmas party for the band will be held on Sunday, Dec 8th at the Shrine Club. More information to follow.

Dues are $20 and payable to the treasurer at my home address.

Enjoy the fall!

Until next time…

John
