VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! First Friday Friars needs YOUR help! We are currently recruiting for folks to join the Board and also to help out with Advertising & Marketing for our organization! As our ranks have grown smaller over the years, we need help to get the word out about our group and its benefits. We need to find ways to keep our organization alive and relevant in this new decade. If you have great ideas, or professional experience in this area First Friday Friars would love to hear from you! Please drop me an email to express your interest!
FREE ANNUAL DUES OPPORTUNITIES: A reminder and update for all and especially newer Friars. We have a drawing at the end of the Friar year for both raffle gifts donated and sponsoring new members. For each raffle gift or new member you sponsor you will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to receive a free year of membership. We will have two winners, one for raffle gifts and one for new members sponsors. So please bring those raffle prizes and new members for a chance to save $150.00.
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE FEBRUARY LUNCHEON: Any Friar who brings a guest as a potential new Friar, the guest’s luncheon will be FREE! This would be a great time to spread the word about First Friday Friars and invite friends and associates to experience our Catholic brotherhood.
Sincerely in Christ,
