INTERNATIONAL ORDER OF ALHAMBRA

Welcomes you to the

ALHAMBRA DAY at the SHRINE CIRCUS

Thursday April 12th was “Alhambra Day at the Shrine Circus!”  The Michigan Council of Caravans, consisting of Barcelona, Braga, Denia, Galicia, Manresa, and Sancho Caravans, hosted 2955 developmentally disabled kids and their aides to the Shrine Circus.  Alhambra provided them with admission, cooked food for everyone and assisted unloading busses and escorting clients to their seats.  Our clients were entertained before the Circus by clowns and magicians from our Caravans.  A good time was had by all! Over 100 Alhambra members worked the event.  We worked closely with our Shriner partners in setting up the event.  Many Caravans used the event as a recruiting tool.  Candidates work alongside Alhambra members and experienced our mission first hand.  One of those Alhambra candidates returned for their second circus event and will become a member at the end of this month! We would like to deeply thank the Detroit area Caravan members for all of their help and putting very large smiles on God’s Special Peoples faces!

Sincerely,

Gary DeCarlo-Past Supreme Scribe                        John Vella-Manresa Grand Commander
