Dinner with friends
I am pleased to announce, that after a lot of tallying of information, we have come to a winning day of the week for our version of District 5’s Dine Around. It seems that by far, the most people were leaning toward either Friday or Sunday. We had one Friday evening that only had two people that said they can not make it. Hopefully they will be able to make it sometimes. Our gatherings will be held on the third Friday of each month. Our first one will be May 21st. I am still working on location and time but most likely shooting for 6:30 arrival. If you can’t be there at 6:30 don’t worry, just come when you can make it. We usually hang around for 2 - 3 hours chatting and having a good time. We do NOT expect to just get in, eat, and get out. If someone needs to leave early they are more than welcome. We are there to have FUN not put restrictions on anything. Attire is completely casual so come as you are. Coat and ties are not expected but if you wear one to work and are arriving that way and you are comfortable, feel free to wear whatever you like.
In trying to come up with a name for our function I was thinking way outside the box. I finally found a festival that was held the middle of May every year during the Middle Kingdom period of Egypt. It was called “heb nefer en inet.” It celebrated life and death as a procession crossed the Nile river from East to West. I think that this sounds very Masonic. It also has a fitting name since translated to English it is called Feast of the Valley.
