Greetings Prophets, Ladies and friends across the Realm from your

2017 President Dan Hood


We are still in the planning stages for our upcoming Convention in Palm Desert, California.  The link for room reservations at the Residence Inn Pal Desert is on this page.  Other information such as events and meals are still in the works.  When I have the full picture, I will be sending out a flyer.  President Dan Hood is still working with the hotel and his Committee,  Hopefully, everything will be ready soon.

When I know more, I will post it on this website, mail information to the Grottoes Secretary and send emails to you.

Thank you for your patience.

Important Notices


It's with a sad heart that I must inform you that out dear Prophet Jim Cunningham, PM has passed away on Thursday, May 11, 2017.  He served our Association as Jurisprudence and Laws Chairman for many years doing an excellent job with professional skills.  His pleasant manner and smile will surely be missed at all of our events.  No arrangements are known at this time.

In Good Fellowship

Charles Bidinger, Secretary
