Greetings Nobles,
As some of you already know, Ansar is in the process of forming a new “Under 50” Club.

There was an organizational meeting held on March 21 and it was decided to move forward with the new club.

JR Pickett will be President, Jim Robson will serve as Vice President and Erik Manon will serve as Sec./Treas.

Rusty Petty & Jason Cutright will serve as Co-Ambassadors and Terry Petty will serve as Advisor to assist with rules & regulations as we get the new club off the ground.
The first “official” meeting will be held on April 25 at the Main Hanger Restaurant in Decatur. 910 S Airport Rd, Decatur, IL 62521

Social Hour will be at 6 with Dinner at 7 and the meeting following dinner.

If you are planning on attending the meeting please contact JR Pickett via email  mailto:retrac06@yahoo.com or the Ansar Office 525-1771
Some things that will be discussed at the meeting will be creating an official name for the club, as well as dues, by-laws and fundraising events.
Some of our objectives of this club are as follows:

-Aggressive fundraising

– Mentor and guidance to all incoming ceremonial candidates

– Assist clubs and units who need help parading

– Be actively involved in the community outside of the Shrine
Our meetings will be open to members of the Masonic bodies who are working towards their 1st, 2nd or 3rd degree and non members who show interest in becoming shrine masons.
This club will be open to ALL Ansar Nobles, regardless of age. Those Nobles not meeting the age requirement are welcome to join as associate members.
Please get the word out to all your clubs and units!!!  We believe this club will have a MAJOR IMPACT on the Future of Ansar Shrine.
If you have any questions regarding the “Under 50” Club, please feel free to contact us.
