All salaam Sir Nobles, Lady Nobles and Sultanas                                       September 2018


Summer is leaving us and fall is upon us. Ben Ziri has been so fortunate to have active members who volunteer to be chairpersons for our socials that make it possible to fund programs for the mentally disabled. I want to thank LN Juliana and PGC Bruce Taber for once again chairing a social this year. The soup cook-off with the Halloween costume contest will follow the installation of officers.(see the attached proclamation). Prizes will be awarded for the best soup and the best costume.

I wish to thank each member who cannot attend our socials but financially support each one. You are invaluable to Ben Ziri Caravan.   GC Theresa Andreas

Proposed list of Ben Ziri Caravan Officers for 2019

The following list is composed of Sir Nobles and Lady Nobles who have been contacted and agreed to serve, if elected, on the Ben Ziri Officer’s Divan for the coming year. Any other member desiring to run for office should contact the Grand Commander as soon as possible and ask to be added to the list of candidates. The more members that are willing to seek office the better it is for the caravan. The election of officers will be held during the October 18, 2017 caravan meeting. This is a very important meeting for the future of the caravan and all members are urged to attend. Refreshments will be available after the meeting.
