Message from Illustrious Sir, Joe Haynes

I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe. It has been a crazy time that no one could have ever seen coming. I just hope it ends soon with everyone appreciating what I have.

I assure you the Divan is still working hard to make the best decisions for Akdar. We had a Divan Meeting tonight to discuss the Vidalia Onions and the Month of May. Your best interest and health being most important, we have decided not to sell onions this year. We have also decided to remain dark meaning having no stated meetings in May. This will hopefully give the virus time to run its course. These were very hard decisions to make and I hope everyone understands. We all want what is best for our Shrine Center and our Members. So lets all check on our neighbors and families and if you need anything please reach out to the Divan.

We are planning a drive by dinner on Thursday May 14th, which would have been our regular business meeting night. We will have to go dinners at the cost of $5.00 each. Please call or text me 918-906-1822 to reserve your dinner by May 13th. You can drive up and receive your dinner, say hi, and be on your way. This will give you a night out and see our smiling faces.

I want to take this opportunity to applaud and thank the first responders and health care workers during this critical time in our Country, especially those in our Shrine family. You are Heroes! Hopefully we will be back to normal in June. We hope to see you soon.

Your in Faith

Potentate Joe Haynes
