Nobles and Ladies,
We had a great turnout for the first Annual East-West Shrine Game watch party and chili cook off. This was a partnership between Akdar and LOS. Thank you to all that helped and participated in the event, we hope to see it grow every year. Thank you to Valarie Byrd for taking the lead and organizing the event.

By the time you read this the 74th Annual Akdar Shrine Circus will be under way. Thank you to all the Nobles and Ladies for all your hard work to make this a success. It takes many months of planning and dedication to pull this off. This is our biggest fund raiser of the year and allows us to continue our mission of helping children. When we all work together, we can make a difference. Come and join us for fun and fellowship as we celebrate a successful Circus on April 12th.

March 12th is IHOP National Pancake Day. All the money donated goes to the Shriners Hospitals for Children.Thank you to all the Nobles for working the multiple IHOP locations greeting people, tying balloons and thanking them for their support. Without you this would not be possible.
