Our History

“Original Proclamation”

Know ye all men by these presents that commencing this date February 1st in the year of our Lord 1970 A. D., that six hale and hearty men of good will and mild temperance did conceive and resolve, according to their conscience, the following dictates:

That an organization be formed to fulfill and perpetuate Good Will and Benevolence for all mankind; to annihilate the dragons of Hate, Prejudice and Evil with the swords of Fun, Laughter and Social Enterprise. To kindle in the hearts of men the spark of providence and understanding, to better ourselves through the betterment of man in the spirit of Altruism.
