All salaam Sir Nobles, Lady Nobles and Sultanas July 2019
GRAND COMMANDERS COMMENTS:
I would like to thank Tony Andreas for writing the GC comments for the June Fez Sez. I agree 100 % with Tony’s comments regarding some of the older members of Ben Ziri who are unable to attend our events; that we should keep in touch with them, give them a call, find out how they are, let them know we care. Tony’s correct, I know I always feel better when I contact someone I have not seen or talked to for some time.
I would also like to thank Bruce and Juliana Taber for once again chairing our annual ‘Chili Cook Off’ that we had this past Saturday; and, a thank you as well to the 5 members that brought Chili in for the fund raising event. Juliana took 1st place, Fe Castro 2nd and Hsiah Scheer 3rd. All 5 Chili’s were good.
Each month in the Fez Sez, our Editor, Bruce Taber list the names of members and family members who are sick or in distress and ask you to keep them in your prayers. We all know that prayers DO help. As we hear of members who are in hospital or sick Theresa Andreas does a great job of notifying the membership by sending a blast email, thank you Theresa for continuing to do that. Finally, I want to say that it was great to see Father Mike at our last meeting, he has gone through a very serious medical problem over the past month, however, he is back in the hospital for another operative procedure, so keep Father Mike in your prayers as well as everyone in Theresa’s last email and all other members listed in the Fez Sez.
