Select Month


All salaam Sir Nobles, Lady Nobles and Sultanas                                        October 2021


I think Ben Ziri caravan is heading in the right direction. After 18 months of no activities at all, were back now with our regular monthly meetings, (August and September), in October we will be voting on a slate of officers for the next year, and also select local non- profit organizations to support from the Charity Fund.  The caravan has other business items to work on as time and availability permits.

At the September meeting the subject of having a caravan Christmas celebration this year was discussed.  Everyone agreed we should try to have it.   With that in mind, I have contacted a couple local restaurants for a suitable private room, menu and price.   We will firm up all the details at the October caravan meeting.  Tentatively, the date will be Saturday, December 18th.

Try to attend our monthly caravan meetings, they are on the 3rd Thursday of each month at the Knights of Columbus hall at Mission San Luis Rey at 1:00 pm. Refreshment’s after the meeting.
