Significant others and Master Masons are welcomed to attend. Seating is limited so register early. For more details visit this link.
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.

Azim Prophet Dave Smelser Having A Grotto Moment
Hey, I have a great idea. Let’s go to New Orleans in late July! Ok, under normal circumstances you’d say “Are you out of your mind? It’s like Eleventy-Billion degrees there that time of year” and well… you’d be right. A delegation of Ubar Prophets were definitely out of their minds and went to New Orleans for the Supreme Council Session.
Representing Ubar was Monarch Pete Ruggieri, Secretary Baby Sheik Jay “Laser”, and Fez-misplacer George Hindson PM. Once we got to New Orleans we met up with our friends from all over the Enchanted Realm.
Lots of great fellowship during the week as we interacted with Prophets from all over North America. New Orleans is an amazing place with great food, live music and tons of history and we took in as much as we could in a week.
The biggest news to come out of Supreme Council was the election of our friend Victor Mann of Azim Grotto to the position of Grand Captain of the Guard. That means that Victor is now 7 heartbeats away from being the boss of all of the Grottoes of North America. Ok, or 8 years away the slow way.
Next year’s Supreme Session is in Beautiful Toledo Ohio. Start planning now!
