“LeRoy’s Boys” is a financial giving opportunity named in honor of our Founder LeRoy Fairchild. It was born during the 128th Supreme Council Session in Indianapolis. After hearing the reports of the Grand Treasurer and the Grand Trustees, it is clear that the Supreme Council is relying more and more upon the invested funds to cover the shortfall in our annual budget. Ernest Sparks, the Monarch of Zaman Grotto, donated one hundred dollars to augment the Supreme Council’s invested funds. Other Prophets soon began to do the same. The effort was named “LeRoy’s Boys.” At the conclusion of the weekend, 185 Prophets had donated or pledged to the fund.
The opportunity to contribute is being extended to all who wish to donate. It is open to Prophets, Grottoes, Family, Friends, and other interested parties. The funds collected will be invested by our Grand Trustees and only the earnings will be used to help offset the operating costs of the Supreme Council. In return for your gift of $100 or more, you will receive a certificate of appreciation and your name will be published in the Grotto Magazine.

GM Hosler is a Veteran of Vietnam and a three time recipient of the Purple Heart. The Grottoes of North America and the Supreme Council Office are extremely proud to recognize his service. We look forward to his convention where we can all join together to thank him personally.
Social Media Policy
Social Media and the Grottoes of North America
The presence of Grotto Prophets on various social networking sites is growing exponentially and it is drawing attention to the Enchanted Realm. By participating on these sites we should strive to make that attention as positive as possible. When we represent ourselves as Prophets of the Enchanted Realm, we become someone’s impression of the Grotto. As such, it is important that we act accordingly and subscribe to the lessons we are all taught as Prophets in terms of how we communicate with fellow Prophets and the general public.
Social Media Code of Conduct for the Grottoes of North America:
A Prophet should conduct his Social Media activities in a way that reflects his membership in the Grotto. He should act in a way that presents a positive image of his membership in Grotto to the world.
As a Prophet, he must be aware that his postings are a permanent record; therefore, his conduct may influence the world with a positive or negative opinion about him personally and also about any organizations to which he belongs.
His actions on the various Social Media outlets should reflect the highest standards of morality and integrity he would practice within the Grotto.
The posting of pictures or videos of Grotto events must comply with the Supreme Council Code.
Information about Grotto social activities must comply with the regulations already in place for wording and distribution.
