All salaam Sir Nobles, Lady Nobles and Sultanas November 2019
GRAND COMMANDERS COMMENTS:
On October 26th Ben Ziri had it’s 5th annual “Soup Cook-off”. It was another successful event and a fun day for those who attended. We had a very good turnout of members and guests, plus 9 different and delicious soups to taste and enjoy. A profound Al Salam to all the cooks and congratulations to the winners.
The annual Soup and Chili cook-off events along with the annual St Patty’s day social are the only ‘fund raisers’ Ben Ziri currently have and I want to thank the members who cannot attend but yet continue to support these events with a check; Thank You, Thank You.
This year in addition to the soup Cook-off and being so close to Halloween, there were 10 or 12 members and guests that dressed up in great looking costumes. The judges had a difficult time selecting the best outfit. The winners were none other than Bruce and Juliana Taber; Bruce was dressed as the Pope and Juliana as a Nun. ( They looked great).
We ended the busy but fun day with the past Supreme Commander ( and now a member of Ben Ziri) Vince Braun presiding over the Installation Ceremony for the incoming officers of Ben Ziri.
Mike Caligiuri, Grand Commander
