 AND ONE FINAL NOTE-  PLEASE NOTE:  Due to strict hotel policy at the Hilton Gardens, we will not be able to bring food into the hotel on Friday night for our usual dinner.  We did not want to raise the registration price in order to have a repast served by the Hotel.  Therefore, there will not be a repast on Friday night.  There are several restaurants in the immediate area of the hotel and we will investigate these and perhaps suggest meeting there as a group after our Friday night business session.  Each individual attending this event will be responsible for all fees related to the meal.  Information will be available at the registration desk on Friday afternoon.

 Your presence is urgently needed at this session.  District Grand Masters and District Grand Most Noble Governors, please notify all your brothers and sisters to be in attendance.

 Fraternally yours,

Graham T. Paige, Director

Cathy McGlotten, Co-Director
