See You There!
Vacation destinations are something we never really take the time to research. Ararat Guides Segway Parade unit is doing just that. We are searching for destinations of interest that maybe you have never even heard of or considered visiting and offering you a chance to visit these unique places on our dime.

We sell chances worth a maximum value of $500.00 to visit a unique destination for $20.00 each. Only 100 tickets are sold. This event is for any “TREEHOUSE” you might want to explore. Just google “Arkansas Treehouse” or “Missouri Treehouse” to see examples of the destinations you have to choose from.

The money goes to replenish the money we spent buying new batteries and hopefully buying new batteries. Each unit takes 2 batteries that cost $850.00 each. That is $1700.00 per unit!

With the persistant help of the guides members, we have managed to get 5 units running and hope to get another one up soon.

Also, the Guides are involved in many facets of freemasonry as are most of you. Sometimes we do not have enough members to fill all 5 units. So if you want to ride with us, let us know! We can have you up and riding in a few minutes. We are always searching for new younger members. There are no dues. Just pay and contribute as you go and participate. Participation helps us grow! Become a member! Assistance is a merging of two words, Assist and Stance. Assist us in taking a stance to help the temple by being an ARARAT GUIDES SEGWAY UNIT member today.

The drawing will be during the July Temple Meeting so get yours soon! President of the Ararat Guides,
Noble Bob Fasl
