From The Potentate – New Membership Directory

Membership DirectoryDear Noble,  I would like to introduce you to a great opportunity for promotion of your business to the rest of our Nobles and their families.  We are putting together a directory exclusive to El Kahir Shriners and we ask that you help support us with an advertisement. Also, if you have friends that have a business please ask them to consider an ad in our directory.

The company we have chosen to do this Guide Book Publishing, a nationwide firm that has been in business for many years publishing church directories in our area.  The representative doing the calling will be David Dunn who is their national account representative.  I am firmly convinced that they have the know-how to provide a quality directory that helps us and also showcases your business.

Fraternally, Douglas J. Strike, Potentate
