All salaam Sir Nobles, Lady Nobles and Sultanas                                       November 2018


I hope everyone had a Creepy Halloween. It is that time of the year for giving thanks to our wonderful lives and celebrating the Lords birth. This is a special time of year for us as most of our family lives close and we get to spend the holidays with them all, parents, siblings, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

I would like to wish everybody a Happy Thanksgiving be safe and God Bless.

We would like to thank all the outgoing Officers for their dedicated work and support to allow Ben Ziri to continue its effort to help the Developmentally Disabled.

On October 18th we elected the new slate of officers for 2019 and had our Installation of Officers Luncheon at the Soup Cook-Off October 27th. PSC Vince Braun proceeded over the swearing in of the new officers.
