Dear Brethren and Friends:

Good Morning and Great Tuesday everyone!
Did you know that this coming Friday is the DEADLINE for your dinner reservation for next Friday's Annual Meeting? It is.
If you've been following along and gosh I hope you have, it's not easy to eat breakfast, have a cup of coffee and type at the same time, like I do every morning for you. So a little cooperation on your part isn't too much to ask is it? Well anyway, as I said if you've been following along, you know our Annual Meeting is the MOST important meeting of our Valley's year, yet, it is the LEAST attended! What's up with that?
That's the meeting that we elect, appoint and install those Officers that will be YOUR Valley's leaders over the coming year. It's also the meeting that we approve the budget that will GOVERN YOUR Valley over the coming year. It's the BIG night for our 50+ year Brethren. Don't YOU think they'd love to have YOU there as part of their BIG moment?
If you haven't made up your mind about coming to our Annual Meeting, give it some thought. But, make up your mind by Friday!
I won't name him because I'm not in the 'embarrass a Brother' business, but I asked one of our Brethren if he was coming to the Annual and he replied, "No." When I asked why he said it was because he only comes out to see the Degrees. Which isn't a bad thing, don't get me wrong. But when I asked him if he attended only the Stated, or the Extra Meetings of his Blue Lodge, he replied, "Stateds only." Hmm. See what I mean?
If you haven't called in to 215-563-1814, emailed to phila.aasr@juno.com or to our Valley Facebook group members, clicked "Going" yet, lets get it done soon!
Have a great day everyone!
