Nobles and Shrine Temple Recorders,

As has been quoted before, time stands still for no one. As we just prepare to tackle 2018 it’s hard to believe that we will soon gather in New Bern, North Carolina for the 2018 SASA Spring Festival. Plans are still under way to ensure that you and your Lady have an enjoyable time as we gather to celebrate, learn, and conduct the business of the South Atlantic Shrine Association.

If you have never visited New Bern you are in for a treat. New Bern is a picturesque town situated at the confluence of the Trent and Neuse Rivers in Eastern North Carolina. New Bern is rich in history being the original capital of NC, the birthplace of Pepsi-Cola, current home of Nicholas Sparks and setting for some of his novels, and is a wonderful place to visit.

Attached to this notification is a registration form for you and your representatives. Please fill this form out for each registrant and send the completed forms along with payment to the address on the bottom of the form. We ask that you register as soon as possible so that adequate plans can be made.

The meeting and all of the activities including accommodations will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton New Bern - Riverfront located at 100 Middle Street, New Bern, NC 28560. Accommodations can be made at:

Please book your room early for the best selections.

Please refer to the SASA homepage as we near the event for a more detailed schedule of events.
