"Organized for Good Fellowship and the support of
Shriners Hospitals for Children"
On behalf of Cabiri International, I bring Season’s Greetings and Best Wishes to all Illustrious Potentates, Nobles, Ladies and Friends! 2020 has been a challenging year with the lifestyle changes we all have had to make. The pandemic has caused our social fraternity to become a virtual reality, severely limiting our “face-to-face” interactions to Zoom and Dial-In group meetings. Many of us that hesitate to “text” or do not want to “tweet” revert to the earlier forms of communication via telephone calls and mail. I think it’s a pleasant surprise to get something in the mail that isn’t a bill!
With elections taking place this time of year, new positions being filled, programs being introduced, and proposals for improvement being brought forth, it is time to get excited about our future. The final stages for the approval of COVID 19 vaccines give us hope that our lives will get back to a more normal standard in 2021. Of course, we will have to be patient and continue to abide by the edicts of social distancing, wearing masks, washing hands, etc. until the case numbers go down.
In the meantime, we need to get back to communicating with Past Potentates as well as those “soon-to-be” Past Potentates to join the Cabiri and share some memories, which usually result in much laughter. Again, the Secretary of Cabiri International, Illustrious Sir Keel Broom, can assist you with Cabiri membership applications, ordering Cabiri jewelry and other Cabiri related items. There will be more information about the 2021 Imperial Convention in Houston when it becomes available.
As we transition from Thanksgiving to the Holiday season, it is our wish at Cabiri International that we all continue to look for Hope, Peace, Joy and Love; may we be fortunate enough to experience elements of these now and into the coming year!
Yours In The Faith,
Robert (Bob) Lee
C.I.P.P.A. President, 2019-2021
