Stay healthy and much Nile Love – QUEEN PAT KNIFFIN


Hello to all the Ladies of the Household. The beauty of the Winter is with us now and the hope of Spring is just around the corner. I pray for the health and safety of all of you as we go through this time of year.

As a special reminder and a request, I am extending an invitation to the 2016 Installation of Thebes Temple #87 on Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at 7:30 PM, when I will be installed as your new Queen. I look forward to serving our Temple and working for the wonderful children we are pledged to help, and to seeing as many of you as possible in February at the next Stated Session. Mark your calendars for these upcoming events and save the dates.


HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope everyone had a blessed start to the New Year. I am pleased to report that our donations to the hospital have surpassed my expectations. I want to thank every single one of you for your time and donations. Several ladies went above and beyond in their selfless donations to make this a great year. Without your help, our donations would be average, but you have made the extraordinary. I am looking forward to great February and March sewing sessions. Again, thank you for all you do!
