All salaam Sir Nobles, Lady Nobles and Sultanas September 2021
GRAND COMMANDERS COMMENTS:
BEN ZIRI CARAVAN IS BACK IN BUSINESS……………… We had our 1st in person meeting on August 19th. It was great to be able to see and be with each other once again, to take care of caravan business and socialize after the meeting.
One item of discussion was the time for future monthly meetings. The consensus was to have the meetings earlier in the day, not at 6:00 pm. So, our next meeting will be on Thursday, September 16th, at 1:00 pm at the usual location, the K of C hall at Mission San Luis Rey. We will have dessert type refreshments and drinks after the meeting. Thanks to Fernando and Ida Acuna for arranging the use of the K of C hall for our earlier meeting’s.
Let’s have a good turnout. September is the month we have to present a slate of officers for next year. Among other discussion items, we have to decide if we want to have a Christmas party in December and if so, where. So mark your calendars for the Sept 16th meeting. Let’s try to have a good turnout. Looking forward to seeing you again…….. Mike Caligiuri, Grand Commander
We are coming up on the anniversary of 9/11/2021. When the planes flew into the towers and the pentagon Theresa and I were touring Italy. Suddenly we went from having the time of our lives to shock, confusion and an all consuming anger. We quickly discovered that there was no way that we could return home immediately so we decided to continue on the tour. When I returned home I shared my thoughts in my monthly newsletter to the members of my Alhambra caravan. Twenty years later after re-reading them I decided to share them with you. I find that my feelings have not changed. I leave the judgment and the meting out of justice to God. Only He has that right. May peace be with you…….. Tony A.
