The Grotto Degree Team led by our Past Monarch Bill Bussiere were able to help our friends at Oak Forest Lodge Mon May 15th, 2023 to put on a 3rd Degree. We were so overjoyed to be invited and lend a helping hand round out a slate. It was our pleasure to give two Worthy & Well Qualified Fellowcrafts an amazing experience. All in all 8 members of the Grotto Degree team came out and took on multiple roles to help. Our Degree team much like the various Hospitality events we host only exist to enrich Masonry and show our love to the Blue Lodge.

El Jaala Grotto participated in the town of Des Plaines Annual 4th of July parade. What a great time was had by all. Big THANKS to all the Prophets for coming on out & supporting our Grotto. A SPECIAL THANKS to the Daughters of Mokanna Caldron #104 for taking part of such a beautiful day. Thanks to Prophet Damien Hudson & the Trolley Car & Bus Company for providing the Trolley & WB Kurt F Rubin for making sure the troops made it to & from the parade safely.
On June 21st to the 24th the Supreme Grotto Session was help in Perrysburg Ohio. El Jaala was well represented by Past Monarchs Manny Roth & Ivan Lugo along with Prophet Mark Victoria. Attention Prophets & all join us as we reflect & celebrate on El Jaala Grottoes hard work in supporting the Humanitarian Foundation Dental Program. #6 out of 58 Grottoes not bad for a Grotto that meets out of a red bag. El Jaala Grotto would not have been successful without the support we received from our various lodges, other appendant bodies, & all that contributed to this worthy charity, especially our very own Prophets & Daughters of Mokanna.
On June 17th El Jaala Grotto participated for the 2nd time in the Taste Of Des Plaines. We had a great booth manned by Prophets Tim Blythe, Luis Mendez & PM Ivan Lugo. WB Luis Mendez SR was visiting from out of town & was put to work. It was a beautiful day & a great time was had by all. We passed many toothbrushes & Humanitarian Foundation brochures.
