It's that time of the year that we are preparing for the Masonic Booth at the San Diego Fair. We are inviting not only Lodges but groups of Masons and affiliated bodies. It would be a nice project for the Pinoy Masons of San Diego to show their support for this endevour. Bring your family too and lets make this a family affair.
By the way we are going to be in need of volunteers during weekdays, so please if you can spare the time. I usually open the booth in the morning, set up the system and train the volunteers and on call too. For information below.

"The 2008 San Diego County Fair is approaching very quickly. The Freemasons of San Diego will be hosting this year’s event. The dates for the San Diego Fair are: June 14 through July 06 (Closed Mondays: June 16, and 23). Please mark your calendar.
We would like to offer your lodge/ group a full or partial day of operating the booth, on a first come, first serve basis. Lodges participating in manning the booth will be given the referrals we develop on a proportional basis and by geographic location. Previous years have proven to be successful, generating up to 75 qualified referrals that added 25 new Brothers to our Fraternity. Many of these Brothers and their Ladies have moved forward into other Masonic Concordant and Affiliated organizations. We also often identify leads for the Ladies and Youth organizations also.
If your group would like to participate, please call or e-mail Tom Vergne at your earliest convenience. All dates are currently open; however, we suggest you provide several date selections, in case another Lodge responds first. Information packets, instruction sheets and tickets will be provided and available after June 07, 2005 at Normal Heights Masonic Lodge No. 632, 3366 Adams Ave. San Diego, CA 92116-1898 (Phone: 619.284-0925 ).
Please contact us as soon as possible to reserve your date. Shifts will be approximately from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM (Morning Shift) and 2:30 PM to 7:30 PM (Evening Shift). At least four (4) per shift are required, so you’ll need at least eight volunteers. Free parking is available and admission tickets will be provided for booth workers
Thank you in advance for your consideration of this endeavor. We hope your Lodge receives lots of referrals and new petitions as a result of your efforts."
Fraternally and Sincerely,
(Via email by Bro Jose Narciso, jnarciso_2000@ yahoo.com).
