Ubar Grotto’s June meeting is always reserved as our second Ceremonial of the year and Ubar was glad to indoctrinate 10 brothers into the world that we all know and love. Heck, we even have proof for Supreme, as our Supreme Council District Deputy, Honorary Ubarian, and all around nice guy Pro. Victor Mann, PM, was willing to make the trip from New York to partake in the special Ubar shenanigans.
Prior to the meeting’s start, we had quite a delicious meal prepared by the team at Commonwealth Caterers. Chicken Cordon Bleu and baked ziti with meatballs were the main dishes; word has it that there weren’t any leftovers. The team even concocted a special beverage that the Prophets well enjoyed.
Before conducting business, Pro. and Shiek Jay “Laser” handed out even more Enchanted Lanterns, as the Prophets feel that we haven’t given enough to the Fairchild Society. Thanks to Pro. Dave Steffie we were able to auction off even more items for the benefit of getting kids with disabilities some dental work. All said and done, a total of more than $150 was raised. Well done, Prophets!
Ubar’s business portion was a quick meeting, and the only officer missing was our Chaplain, due to a family vacation (we at Ubar strive to the ideals that family is first, and wish to convey that to every member of the Fraternity). In his stead, Pro. Dan Loughin had to step in (seriously, who keeps giving that guy jobs?) After a quick meeting, we moved to the Ceremonial, where even more hipsters were brought into the fold (editors note: we at Ubar have nothing against hipsters. We welcome all into our group, so long as you enjoy our shenanigans.) Afterwards, pipes and papers where unofficially smoked.
We are off for the summer, with some possible updates coming over the next two months, so please stay tuned. Otherwise, we will see you all at our September meeting on the 27th! Grotto on, Prophets!
