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!
Check out the Grotto Video!

One last thing before we end this post. This year we saw a momentous event happen. A gentlemen by the name of Geo X Harris received his Fez. This was not really a special occasion for everyone, but at least for him. You can see his eyes watering up.
Prophets! This year the Pennsylvania Grotto Association and the Colonial Grotto Association will be meeting at the same BAT TIME and same BAT PLACE, right here in Central PA. The site will be the historic Eisenhower Hotel in Gettysburg PA.
Plenty of time to sight-see, enjoy the hospitality room and to visit with Prophets from around the Realm.
