Pote's Notes - May/Jun 2015

Dave Brady Sr., Potentate

The year is flying by and we are having a great time. The Mexican Riviera Cruise was successful and those who went had a great time. Upon our return we hosted the Knights of Columbus, showcasing the Irish Dancers, and what a wonderful evening. At our annual Nile Kids Easter Egg Hunt we hosted over 300 kids. It was followed by an Easter Brunch put on by catering.

The fun continues at Nile. Sunday May 3rd will be our Nile Spring Ceremonial. The program will begin at 8:30 a.m. with a breakfast at the Directors Staff Club House. Then at 10:00 a.m. the First Section will perform and at noon all are invited to the picnic area for a BBQ lunch. Cost for the lunch is $15.00 per person. Following lunch, the second Section will present its program and the ladies are invited to the main building for the program especially prepared for them.
