We are in need of units, clubs or BSCs to do dinner for the stated meetings for 2020. If you want to make some cash for your treasury, please send a message to emsexton@yahoo.com and let me know what month you want. The only unit that has selected a month in Keystone Cops for February. 
We are lacking in sales on these tickets for the Golden Camel. Nobles, this is a great fundraiser for Bahia Shrine that goes directly to our general fund. We do not want to raise dues, bump up drink prices and in general pick the pocket of the Nobility for every event or thing we do at Bahia. But we have to raise money.
I would encourage you to buy some tickets or offer them to neighbors or coworkers. You do not have to be a Shriner to win and the prizes can be converted into cash. 
Drawing will be at the Stated meeting in February.
Please join us on Sunday, 5 January as the 2020 Divan celebrates the public installation for family and friends. We have several interesting items on the program including a guest speaker who is a recent Shrine patient and we will be presenting the 1st Annual Humanitarian of the Year Award. 
We will also be having our normal Parade of Units and we will be installing all club, unit and BSC Presidents and officers following the installation of the Divan. We look forward to seeing you there.
We are extremely close to having our patio project completed. Every day moves us to starting on our Out Door Kitchen.The Shutters are installed and are wired up. The 3 new 72″ TVs are installed and working great. The exhaust fan is wired in and our new tables will be ready for your beverage tonight. We will be getting the decals for them in a couple of weeks.
We installed the lights on the front this week as well a getting a light for our flag.
With the help of the OG elect, Mark Charlton, we leveled the back area and moved the picnic tables to the rear of the property. 
How many of you remember BCGs? Did you wear them in basic? Still have some? How about just a fun or funky pair of glasses to make someone laugh?
