Welcome Ill. Sir Jeff Horton

and First Lady Pam!


As I write this many thoughts

have come to me. My first

thought is to thank Ill. Sir. Roger

Thomas for all the time and effort

he put in to making Sabbar a

better Shrine. The Red Fez

Lounge looks great with new

paint and the addition of the

booths. The big room looks great

with the white walls with black

drapes. Wow! What a difference

a year makes. I also want the

thank Noble Jim Burke for all the

improvements he has made to the

Recorder’s Office, he has been

selfless in his efforts to improve

our Shrine Center.

We have a new Divan this year

with the addition of four who

were not there in January of

2012. Ill. Sir. Larry Bowers will

be a great help as Chief Rabban

and his experience as a Past

Potentate will be invaluable. We

have a new Assistant Rabban

Ponderings of the Potentate Ill. Sir Jeff Horton

Ill. Sir Jeff Horton

Sabbar Potentate 2013

with Allan Morgan stepping in,

I believe he will be of great

service to Sabbar. Abe

Rodriguez brings a lot of

experience with activities at the

Eagles and VFW having

presided over both groups. Abe

also knows how to run a kitchen

and do rentals. I think we are

fortunate to have him as High

Priest and Prophet. Finally, Rod

Wagoner is our new Oriental

Guide. As a new Shriner he has

taken on a huge task with the

Temple Topics and the website.

Welcome all to the 2013 Divan.

I also want to note that three of

the five progressive Divan

members belong to Marion

McDaniel Lodge. For this

reason I am changing the Unit

Head meetings to the last

Monday of each month so that

we can attend our Stated

Meeting.

Those who know me are aware

of my love of Freemasonry

which is the foundation upon

which I approach any

undertaking. My theme this year

is the “Masonic Shriner.” The

ideals of Masonry will always be

my guide as your Potentate.

This year’s pin and bola reflect

my feelings signifying the Light

of Freemasonry shining on the

Shrine resulting in the support

for our Shrine Hospitals for

Children. A new necktie will be

available which the Officers will

wear; it is a tone on tone

Scimitar of burgundy.

There are many events planned

for this year. February brings us

the Sweetheart Dance and the

Rodeo Dance. A gun safety

class on March 2 nd and a dog

show on March 30 th . We’re also

planning a 5 day cruise in July.

I will be inviting all in the

Masonic family to our events so

that they can experience the fun

we have here at Sabbar.

We still need help with Bingo.

Larry Bowers and Gary Miller

have done a great job keeping

bingo going, but we need more

people to step up and help.

These are two Past Potentates

who continue to Support Sabbar.

So what’s your excuse for not

working Bingo? It’s really not

hard work but does take some of

your time. If we could get more

workers then we would all not

have to be there for every bingo

session. We are lucky to have so

many faithful Bingo players who

really want to support us and

even win a little money while

there.

Once again, thank you for the

trust you have given me as your

Potentate for 2013. It is a great

honor and I am humbled by all

the support I have received.

Let’s have fun this year … and if

Sabbar is a better Shrine when

the year is done, then I will feel

that we will have succeeded.

Yours in Faith

I am excited to begin this year as the First Lady of Sabbar. Jeff and I

have many ideas as to how to make Sabbar a fun place for Shriners and

their families. I have two pins this year, one is to support Shriners

Hospitals and the other will be my ladies pin. I hope the ladies of

Sabbar will support me this year as we try our best make some more

improvements at Sabbar. My project for this year is to replace the

carpet in the lobby to make our Shrine more presentable to all who

enter for the first time.

We will have a fun “Dog Show” on March 30 with many events for

you and your pooch to enter. I look forward to meeting all the ladies so

that we can show the guys how to have some real fun at the Shrine. If

you have some ideas of your own please let me know, my cell phone is

(520) 400-1209 or you can call our house phone at (520) 731-8333.

Sincerely,

Pam Horton

Happy New Year, I hope everyone had a great holiday season.

Elections are over and a new year is about to begin. I am looking

A new year and some new ideas for the Topics …

partly the result of suggestions and partly some

independent research into different Shrine

publications to see what would make you want to

pick the Topics up and read it. We’re still working

on that formula, so bear with us and make sure to let

us know your likes, dislikes and ideas.

This month’s Topics is full of listings: Staff, Units,

Clubs and Schedules. The goal is to keep up with

changes that happen through the year. For this to

work, your Unit or Club will need to get changes to

the Topics. We’ll then publish the update in the next

issue.

There’s also a new calendar format that, hopefully,

will be easier to read and even hang on your fridge.

We always need articles and photography. Let us

know what’s happening with your group and if

you’re willing and able to lend a hand.

Noble Allan Morgan

Assistant Rabban 2013

I would like to thank those of you who voted for me, and look forward to

serving the nobility with our new potentate, Rabban, and the other officers of

the Divan.

As I stated at the meeting, I hope I can live up to your expectations as a

person, a Mason, and a Shriner.

I have been the President of the Drum & Bugle Corp for the last five years,

and have seen our D & B membership decline for a variety of reasons, and I

am not unaware that other units are suffering from a decline in participation

as well. My goal is to support the plans of the new Potentate and Rabban and

work towards making the Shrine a place where former members will feel

welcome enough to want to participate, and also making it an entity that

entices new members.

I look forward to serving you and hope to prove worthy of your trust and

support.

Thank You again for your support,

Strong Brotherhood - Divided Union Halsey “Doc” Miller

Confederate Brigadier General Louis

"Lo" Armistead was a graduate (1839) of

West Point who served in the Union

Army in the Mexican War prior to the

Civil War. The conflict erupted while

Armistead was stationed in San Francisco,

at which time he unhappily parted

from his officer friends and their wives

and left to join the confederacy. First as

a major and then a Brigadier General

(April 1862). He took part in several

battles and was mortally wounded during

Pickett's charge at Gettysburg. Two days

later he died.

As he lay dying among the guns of

Cushing's Battery (Union) he asked for

his close friend, General Winfield Scott

Hancock, and was informed the General

was also wounded and could not be

moved. However, General Hancock's

aide Captain Henry H. Bingham was sent

to him, and the two Masons comforted

each other. Brotherhood triumphed over

enmity.

Similar occurrences were not rare during

the conflict. Two days after the City of

Vicksburg was conquered, Masons on

both sides held a joint lodge meeting.

Furthermore Masons from both sides

took part in the burial of the Captain of

The Friend to Friend Masonic Memorial at Gettysburg was crafted by Ron Tunison.

It shows the mortally-wounded Confederate Brigadier Gen­eral Lewis Addison

Armistead being comforted by Union Captain Henry H. Bingham. Both men were

Masons_

one of the Union ironclads that had besieged and helped capture the City. Other stories tell of plantation

owners showing Masonic rings and regalia to Union troops, who then did not loot or burn their property.

Such courteous actions probably were not then and certainly are not uniform today. I need only think some

comments I've heard from visitors to my house, upon seeing the uniform of a Captain of Confederate

Artillery were less than positive. I had relatives on both sides, Rob Finn, Pvt., Pennsylvania Infantry, and

Capt. Elisha Halsey, Halsey's Battery of the Charleston (S.C.) Artillery.

I do believe that we, as Masons, can honor the war dead as well as former foes.

A Message From the Imperial Potentate

Dear Fellow Nobles,

It's hard to believe it's already December, with the holidays fast approaching!

We had another busy month.

Following the fall Joint Boards Meeting in Tampa in November, PIP

Gene Bracewell, who is also chairman of donor development, and I

traveled to the Houston hospital for the presentation of a One Million

Dollar Plaque to Southwest Airlines Inc. The plaque recognizes the

company for assisting our patient transportation efforts by providing

about 2,700 round-trip tickets to our patients and parents/guardians.

The plaque is displayed on the hospital's donor wall.

Several VIPs from Southwest's Dallas headquarters, as well as

members of the Houston media were on hand were on hand for the

presentation, and received a tour of the facilities and lunch. It was a

very inspiring day for everyone

Then we headed north for a three-night stay in Montreal, Canada, hosted

by KARNAK Temple. Our first stop was City Hall, where we met the

acting Mayor and signed the GOLD book. This was followed by a tour of the our Shriners Hospital in Montreal

the next day, along with a visit to the construction site of the future Medical Center complex, which will include

a new Shriners Hospital. Our current hospital in Canada is the oldest in Canada At the start of the construction

site visit, Jan and I, Janet and Imperial Sir Wayne Lachut and Dianne and Illustrious Sir Harry Brisson all had to

put on steel-toed boots, hard hats and orange safety vests.

This was quite an experience. We were climbing up and down six flights of wooden stairs, and looking at

pipes, steel beams and a lot of concrete walls. What an amazing medical center this will be when finished!

Shriners Hospitals for Children will break ground for construction in March of 2013, with completion of the

project expected in the spring of 2015.

Later, Karnak Potentate Harry Brisson and his Lady Dianne hosted a party at the temple for us, which was

attended by more than 150 Nobles and Ladies. The town crier announced our arrival, and the drum and

bugle corps performed as special escorts took us to our seats.

Saturday was the Montreal Santa parade. Imperial Sir Wayne and I rode on the Karnak train (made from

a school bus chassis). An estimated crowd of 700,000 (WOW!) watched the Christmas parade. The parade

route was lined with children! It was quite an amazing sight!

On Sunday we flew from Montreal to London, Ontario, Canada, to visit MOCHA Temple and tour the

Ontario Children's Hospital, where we watched a demonstration of telemedicine. The telemedicine

equipment is funded by Mocha Temple.

Mocha Shriners purchased a three-story brick house built in 1892 to use as their Temple. They added banquet

facilities to the rear of the property and kept the house basically intact. The woodwork is beautiful.

There are coffered ceilings in many rooms, built-in bookcases and fireplaces in each room. A wrap-around

porch has been enclosed to add seating to the dinning room which is open to the public five days per week.

They've done a magnificent job with the building.

Illustrious Sir Dave Fickling and Lady Patricia hosted a banquet Monday night attended by more than 120

Nobles and ladies. Many checks from the clubs, units, and Mocha temple were presented to us for Lady

Jan's Program, which benefits the hospitals' research program.

Our singing patient ambassador, Jeremy Gabriel, and his mother were special guests at the banquet.

Jeremy sang a couple of songs for us and everyone crowded around him at the end of the evening activities,

wanting to get to know him and congratulate him on his many accomplishments.

Next, we traveled back to Charlotte to attend the 8

th Annual Oasis All-Star Classic football game, featuring

players from the North and South Carolina private high schools. Attending the game along with us were

Imperial Sirs Chris Smith, Wayne Lachut, Jim Smith and Imperial Chaplain John Stanley, along with their

Ladies Ethel, Janet, Alice and Rose. North Carolina won the game and the series is tied 4-4!

Next on our busy agenda was a trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico to visit AL RAI'E SALEH Temple to finalize

plans for our spring trip in support of the clinic that will be presented by our Philadelphia and Springfield

hospitals. Illustrious Sir Rafeal and his Lady Margarita hosted a dinner for us, along with the Temple Divan

and Past Potentate J.J. Mulinelli in celebration of the temple's achieving GOLD status in membership. We

also toured the P. R. V.A. hospital to view where hundreds of children will be examined on April 20, 2013,

by the Philadelphia and Springfield hospital staff and doctors.

From Puerto Rico we traveled to Melbourne, Fla., for the AZAN Temple's 31st Abate/AZAN Toy Run and

a visit to the Kennedy Space Center. We were hosted by PP Leo Cornelison and Lady Shirley as well as the

Potentate Robert Headley and Lady Lora. On Friday evening, the North Brevard Shrine Club roasted both

the temple Potentate and me. A FUN time was had by all the Nobles and Ladies of the various clubs. On

Sunday Lady Jan and I led more than 10,000 bikers who were carrying toys to benefit Shriners Hospitals for

Children, as well as other nonprofit organizations.

Following the toy run to benefit the children, we were off to New York City to attend the second annual

"Broadway Loves Shriners Hospitals for Children" Concert benefiting the Philadelphia Hospital. It was

held at the beautiful Grand Lodge of New York on December 3.

Also, we want to remind you that it's fraternity dues-paying time — please don't let it slip your mind during this

extra-busy season of the year. Your fraternity — and equally importantly — your philanthropy,

Shriners Hospitals for Children, depend on your support. Thank you for taking care of this — and for all you do

for out two great organizations.

Our next message will contain information on Shriners International Headquarters' Service

Awards event, the Boston hospital Christmas Party, Springfield hospital visit and Rose Bowl

Parade/Rose Bowl game.

Lady Jan and I wish you and your family a Happy Holiday Season and a very prosperous 2013.

Yours in the Faith,

Alan W. "AL" Madsen

Path of the Oriental Guide Rod Wagoner

Noble Rod Wagoner

Oriental Guide 2013

“Pro-Tem” or not, thank you to those who voted for me in the December

election. Originally, I’d not intended to run, being a brand-new Noble.

But I’ve had success in stepping into positions that were open and where

no one was available, even if the learning curve was steep. What an

opportunity! A colleague, who often takes on (and gets handed) multiple,

challenging tasks….all at the same time, mind you … always says, “Well,

Giddyup!” Just so you know the background when you hear me say that

phrase ….

As mentioned last month, expect to see the formation of a new Unit this

month that will be concerned with Communications and IT infrastructure

at Sabbar, which I’d like to call SABBARCOM. The unit’s charges are

likely to be: Infrastructure (computers, wifi, telephone system),

Communications (Topics, email-blasts, website, social media, mailings)

and Advertising (flyers, promotional pieces, on-line store). This new unit

will help the Divan manage, coordinate, document and train in these areas.

The bottom line: make it work, make it easy, share the knowledge.

A new year with a new Divan and there are lots of ideas being offered up

on how to make Sabbar better and more vibrant in the coming year. This is where YOU, come in. I’ve

heard many ideas while talking with people in the Lounge after meetings. I’ve made note of some, but

there are many more out there. Even if you did it before and it didn’t work, that doesn’t mean it was a bad

idea. How do you think we could get our name back out into the community and raise our visibility? What

would help us raise money more effectively? Expect the Divan to ask for these ideas, but also to ask for

YOUR help in making them happen.

And, expect the Topics to report on those ideas. Please share them openly for the good of Sabbar, not just

this month, but in upcoming months as well.

Regarding the Year of the Masonic Shriner—Let’s not forget to participate in our other Masonic

organizations. Like many of you, I am also a member of York and Scottish Rites and other Masonic

groups. Our entire Masonic family needs Sabbar’s support, just as we need theirs. The Topics will publish

and email blast (as possible) notices of these groups’ activities. Please attend meetings, participate, mentor

a new Brother ... do your best to help, as they are part of our Tucson Masonic Family.

We also have Masters and Wardens. I’ve not yet been either a Master or a Warden, but the group is open to

all Master Masons and I AM an active seeker of more light. This is a real chance to share resources,

experience and knowledge … and find out where to get more of each. From my own experience, I’ve

recently been asked to help mentor a new Entered Apprentice while his coach is on a work assignment.

When I tried to find another EA Degree to take him to, I took quite a bit of time searching because there is

no central website or listing available. Imagine how just that service would help coaches. This is a small

example of what can be done. So, whether or not you are an officer in your Blue Lodge, I ask that you and

your officers participate in SAMWA (Southern Arizona Masters and Wardens Association).

2013 looks like a good year. Well, Giddyup!

Yours in faith, Rod

Drum & Bugle Corps and Band Christmas

The Nobles of the Drum & Bugle Corps and Band celebrated the coming of Christmas this year with a

dinner held in the Dining Room of the Temple.

Members of both units were treated to dinner of Baked Lemon Chicken, mixed vegetables, red potatoes,

salad and rolls. There was a large assortment of appetizers and, of course, some delicious deserts to top off

the evening. The meal was provided by Creative Catering and everyone said the food was very good.

Entertainment for the evening was provided by accordionist and keyboard player, Roxanna Baker. After

dinner, everyone participated in a Christmas Carol sing along and rousing chorus of voices emanated from

the room. The Christmas spirit was evident in the nicely decorated room and the women and men in their

holiday finery.

After presentation of a few “Thank You” gifts, the evening was ended with coffee, tea, and some good

fellowship.

My thanks go out to John & Sharlot Prokop, who took on the task of setting up the dinner and to all those

who participated in setting up and cleaning up the room.

From the Other Side

- Roger Thomas, PP

Fellow Nobles,

Having the honor of serving as Potentate was a

fond experience that will not be forgotten. Truly

nice folks mingle at Sabbar. And for a fun, tonguein-cheek

look at the year — January 1, 2013; it was

like getting the wonderful results of a great dose of

mental Ex-lax. The burden of “Potentate-ship” was

lifted and the resultant spirit of liberty that began

floating in the air was heady, to say the least. Now,

the time has come to join you on “our” side of the

lectern and enjoy a renewed freedom of speech that

we should all cherish. It’s time to come forth with

humor, some truth and expressing ourselves in the

American way.

Malvolio said in Twelfth Night, “Be not afraid of

greatness: some are born great, some achieve

greatness and some have greatness thrust upon

them.” I can now look upon my Past Potentate

counterparts across the country and understand

how some might believe they have become the sum

of those three “some's.” Remember, you can always

tell a Past Potentate .,. you just can’t tell him

much.

Someone said that after this annual incident, a book

might be in order. Ok, so the title might be, The

Invention: On How to Make Up An Answer, On the

Spur of the Moment, to Any Question Anyone May

Ask, and How to Become Quasi Authoritative With

Your Eyes Closed and Your Fingers Crossed.

Once again, back to reality. The pleasure of

working with and for you, at this station in 2012,

consisted of moments which Nancy and I will

reminisce on, with visions that will honestly last

throughout our lives.

Yours in Faith,

Roger Thomas, PP
