All salaam Sir Nobles, Lady Nobles and Sultanas January 2020
GRAND COMMANDERS COMMENTS:
2020 is here and hopefully It will be a Good and Healthy year for all of us. When I meet friends this time of the year, I wish them a Happy New Year and always add “and hope it’s a Healthy year for you”. At my age and the age of many of our members, being and staying healthy seems to be foremost in our minds.
Recently we received a blast e-mail from Theresa Andreas informing us of recent medical issues of a few of our members as well as an update regarding members with recurring medical problems (thank you Theresa for the info). Please continue with your prayers for their recovery and also for the members listed in the Fez Sez each month.
With the new year ahead of us, as an organization, Ben Ziri will continue to be active, keeping in mind we are helping God’s ‘Special People’ and will also continue with the ‘Social’ part of membership in the Order of Alhambra with our events and monthly meetings.
I want to give a special thank you to Bruce Taber , our ‘Editor in chief’( among other jobs that he does) for keeping us all informed of our activities etc. by publishing the monthly ‘Fez Sez’ .
In closing, I want to mention that on December 15th, Ben Ziri had it’s Christmas gala at El Camino County Club. We had close to 30 people there enjoying a wonderful meal, a little bit of Christmas singing and each others company. I want to thank PGC Theresa Andreas for chairing the event, not just this year but for the past 18 years. (Now that’s dedication) Thank you Theresa…………………….
