In addition, we will have a short program with slide show that tells the story of what we do as Shriners and why it is so important.  If you’ve had a chance to see Ed Stolze’s presentation in the past, Ed promises it will be bigger and better this year.
As we get closer to the benefit we will have more detail on our benefit but a couple things that we’re very excited about this year.
