Ubar Grotto is an organization for members of the Masonic fraternity. It is a constituent body operating under the Supreme Council of the Mystic Order of the Veiled Prophets of the Enchanted Realm, having been constituted on July 23, 2011. The Grotto is officially located in Elizabethtown, PA, and meets on the fourth Sunday of each month. Meetings start at 6 pm and are held at Funk Brewing (28 S. Market St) in Elizabethtown, PA. From time to time we do switch up a meeting to a different location. Keep an eye out on this page and our Facebook page for meetings or social gathering updates. Questions and comments can be sent using the Contact page.
We hope everyone partied (relaxed) during the summer break. But as all vacations go, back to work. We have a lot of things to do this month.
- Don’t forget the meeting on 9/22 from 5:00 PM to 8:30 PM at Funk’s Brewing. Cut off for the Grotto menu is 9/16. If you miss the registration, you can always order basic food from the bar. Register Here
If you can help at Autumn Day, please let a Grotto bigwig know your availability. What hours can you work? Start time is 8 am, and the end time will be after the race and clean up. Find a time that will suit you.
- Bring bodies to the meeting.
Yuck it up Prophets! We’re back at the Prophet Steffie’s Ubar Land Ranch. Who knows there may be an initiation.
Menu: Brisket, sausage, wings, baked beans, stuffed potato salad, along with chips and pretzels.
Official start time is around 3 PM in the barn. You’ve been there before. Or maybe you are new to the Ranch Reverie. Prophet Dave will be putting on the feed bag again this year.
Following a short meeting, the evening buffet will begin around 6 PM.
Parking is available around the barn. Camping is available (w/your equipment) or other responsible accommodations.
Registration cut-off is Monday, June 17th, 2019, at 6 PM. Don’t put this off. Please adhere to the cut-off, as Prophet Steffie needs to know our numbers for ordering the food. Meal cost is $20.00. BYOB.
So here we are, about to pull the ripcord on National Grotto Day, 2019.
There is still time to get petitions in (right before the meeting starts) on Sunday March 24, once again at Funks Brewing in Elizabethtown. This month will not only be our Ceremonial but Convivial as well. So bring your carnivorous self to the “meating” and have some Prime-Freaking-Rib.
There is a pretty nice savings if your friend gets his petition in before this ceremonial, so kick him in the fez and get that fresh meat ready for the party. Download a Petition so there is no excuse. We know you have friends, bring them out!
