It is amazing<br />

how quickly<br />

three months<br />

have gone, as<br />

we are now at<br />

mid April. It has<br />

been a long<br />

winter and it is<br />

good to see the<br />

snow finally gone.<br />

Things are alive and well at <strong>Mocha</strong><br />

<strong>Shriners</strong>. At the time of writing,<br />

we have had twelve installations<br />

since January 14, 2011 with more<br />

coming, as well as some official<br />

visits. I am pleased to see some of<br />

the Clubs and Units starting to<br />

consider combining some of these<br />

visits, as per my request and that is<br />

certainly much appreciated.<br />

The busy Spring and Summer<br />

schedule is about to start. We have<br />

the <strong>Mocha</strong> Ball on <strong>May</strong> 7th/11 at<br />

the Best Western Lamplighter Inn at<br />

591 Wellington Road south in<br />

London. It is not too late to get<br />

tickets, if you have not seen the ad<br />

until now. It will be an evening of<br />

great friendship, food and dancing.<br />

The Spring Ceremonial is <strong>May</strong> 27<br />

and 28th, so see if you can convince<br />

some of your fellow Master Masons<br />

to please consider joining our great<br />

Philanthropy. We must increase our<br />

numbers soon, or we are going to<br />

become extinct. That is not a nice<br />

thought, but it is reality. We now<br />

have approximately 35 applications<br />

in, but let’s increase that to 100 and<br />

get that Bruce Shrine commitment<br />

of $1000 per new member for<br />

<strong>Mocha</strong> and the Shrine Hospital<br />

System.<br />

Potentate’s Report<br />

The summer will bring B.B.Q.’s<br />

golf tournaments and other fun<br />

filled events for the Nobility and<br />

their ladies and friends.<br />

Nobles Harry Hewbank and<br />

Chris Bradley are working on<br />

membership-- new members and<br />

restoration of members, who have<br />

taken a demit or been suspended for<br />

some reason.<br />

Noble John Davidson, as Promotions<br />

Co-ordinator is selling business<br />

cards ads. This is a new concept for<br />

ads at $113.00 each for your<br />

business card. This cost will get<br />

your business card into four issues<br />

of <strong>Mocha</strong> News and will assist in<br />

paying for the cost of producing this<br />

great magazine. We have another<br />

committee getting better prices<br />

on publishing the magazine and<br />

returning to our usual good quality.<br />

Nobles Michael Farr and Rick<br />

McLeod are doing great promotions<br />

on Donor Relations. They have a<br />

lofty goal for this project and if<br />

your club or unit has not yet heard<br />

their presentation, you should give<br />

them a call and hear about the<br />

information.<br />

We are starting to make progress on<br />

the plans to redecorate and<br />

refurbish the upper banquet room.<br />

Noble Barry O’Brien is chairing a<br />

committee to move forward with<br />

this project.<br />

Hope to see as many of you as can<br />

attend, the <strong>Mocha</strong> Ball and Spring<br />

Ceremonial.<br />

Yours In The Faith,<br />

Recorder’s Corner<br />

by Jeff Brown<br />

Gosh, here we go charging into a new year<br />

with so many items to deal with. Our new<br />

Potentate, Illustrious Sir Jack Cumming has<br />

his hand firmly on the tiller and is leading<br />

his new Divan through the challenges we<br />

face. One of our issues this year is the<br />

refurbishing of our upper banquet hall at<br />

the Temple. It has been many years since<br />

a major change has taken place in the hall and many are<br />

beginning to realize it looks very “tired”.<br />

Noble Barry O’Brien has stepped up to be the Committee<br />

chairman for reviewing the whole project and will be looking at<br />

all facets of the project from top to bottom. He is getting bids and<br />

estimates and, with his committee, he will be developing a plan<br />

to present to the Board of Directors for consideration. Ultimately<br />

the Board will be bringing the plan to the membership for<br />

approval. However, the costs for such a plan will need the<br />

financial support of the Clubs & Units. More on that later.<br />

Illustrious Sir Bob Henry and his committee on Long Range<br />

Planning from 2010 has presented their report to the Divan late<br />

last year and has now presented a modified version at the recent<br />

Information Day seminar at <strong>Mocha</strong> on April 2nd. The report was<br />

well received and the Divan has been acting prudently on many<br />

concerns brought forward in the context of that report. Gratitude<br />

is extended to Ill. Sir Bob Henry and his committee for their hard<br />

work and diligence.<br />

Speaking about the Information Day on April 2nd, although<br />

numbers of attendees were a little lower than expected, I believe<br />

they found the day to be enlightening. Many speakers and loads<br />

of information were presented and a good interactive session<br />

Chaplain’s Chat<br />

Nobles: We are living in interesting<br />

times. We are living in times of extreme<br />

change. How exciting that can be if we<br />

choose. How debilitating that can be if<br />

we choose to live in the past. It was<br />

reported to me that at this year's<br />

installation our Potentate's grand<br />

daughter said she would like to be a<br />

Shriner like her grandfather and her<br />

uncles. We live in interesting times. As<br />

<strong>Shriners</strong> we profess to be people of faith putting ourselves at<br />

God's disposal to be led into doing the good works that God<br />

would have us do on this earth. We are also just into the second<br />

decade of the 21st Century and it is time to remember that we<br />

are joint citizens of the Kingdom of God(a Spiritual Kingdom)<br />

and of this good land of Canada. It is time to rededicate<br />

ourselves to both of these citizenship's.<br />

As members of the Kingdom of God make sure that your faith<br />

is firmly fixed on God and His will for you, rather than on your<br />

own self-will and determination to have things our way rather<br />

than God's way. As citizens of Canada remember that if you<br />

seemed to highlight the day. Remember that Information Day is<br />

an annual seminar for you, as members of <strong>Mocha</strong> and our Clubs<br />

& Units. Plan on attending every year. We try to vary the<br />

information presented and give you updates on current issues so<br />

it is never a waste of your time to attend.<br />

Membership issues are still haunting us as we suffered a number<br />

of visits from the Black Camel recently and our numbers keep<br />

falling. We need you to refocus on those Masons that you<br />

know would make good <strong>Shriners</strong>. Our Membership Committee,<br />

Nobles Harry Hewbank, Chris Bradley and Shayne Eldridge are<br />

working hard to promote membership, can you support them? Do<br />

you have an application form in your fez case? Do you have one<br />

in your Masonic apron case? Are you talking to those Masons<br />

you know that could be interested in joining us in the “World’s<br />

Greatest Philanthropy”? Look around you, and don’t be hesitant to<br />

mention membership to them.<br />

Our horizon is now set on the upcoming Spring Ceremonial in<br />

Southampton & Port Elgin on <strong>May</strong> 27 & 28. We have a good class<br />

of candidates and are still looking for more! We initiated three<br />

Nobles through a short form Ceremony at the Bruce Shrine Club<br />

Official Visit on April 11th because they will be unable to attend<br />

the Spring Ceremonial so we are off to a good start.<br />

The Imperial Session is in Denver this year and your Divan will be<br />

travelling there to participate in the seminars and business<br />

sessions. Imperial Sir George Mitchell is winding down his year as<br />

Imperial Potentate and we did “Let George Do It” after all. Denver,<br />

of course is the home area for Imperial Sir Michael Severe, Deputy<br />

Imperial Potentate and he will of course be anticipating his<br />

election at that session.<br />

Remember, “UNITY WINS”<br />

and the Potentate’s Slogan;<br />

“LET’S ALL PULL TOGETHER”<br />

are doing God's will, it is likely to be of benefit to your family,<br />

neighbors and the whole country.<br />

We hold joint memberships in <strong>Mocha</strong> (our primary<br />

membership) and in clubs and/or units to which we may<br />

belong. "Mother <strong>Mocha</strong>" requires as much attention as our<br />

clubs and/ units. A strong joint membership will benefit both.<br />

I was reminded of the 'refurbishment committee' (for our<br />

building) recently one Sunday when I attended St. Luke's<br />

Church, Broughdale/London, with my mother. Also in<br />

attendance was Noble Charles Ross who acted as the lawyer<br />

for <strong>Mocha</strong> when the new banquet facility was added. I mention<br />

this as a remembrance of the fact that the banquet facility was<br />

added some time ago and probably needs up-dating. Let us<br />

rededicate ourselves to looking after our present membership<br />

and building for it is in having a strong <strong>Mocha</strong> membership<br />

that others will become interested in joining us for fellowship<br />

and working for Shrine Children.<br />

In these interesting times of rapid change remember that it is<br />

only God who does not change. Yet God requires us to change<br />

as we are continually called to new ministries in God's<br />

service.<br />

To God be the Glory<br />

Nobles<br />

I may be alone in my thoughts here, but I am darn well<br />

ready for the weather to warm up, there is Motorcycle<br />

riding to be done, outside chores, to be considered, and<br />

all kinds of stuff that has nothing to do with cold or wet<br />

weather.<br />

As you will see we have gone back to the glossy format<br />

for the <strong>Mocha</strong> News, which to me has more eye appeal<br />

than the last issue. I don't want to get in to the politics<br />

of it all, and it mainly boils down to costs. I am all for<br />

cutting spending, and am hopeful that through more<br />

advertising, and donations from Clubs and Units we<br />

may be able to keep this format.<br />

In reality there are many Shrine Temples who do have<br />

the same format as our last issue, so I guess we do<br />

what we can do, with what we have at our disposal.<br />

Hopefully you've got a couple of candidates lined up for<br />

the Spring Ceremonial, please come pout and support<br />

the new candidates, and the hard workers of Bruce<br />

Shrine Club, who have put a lot of time and effort into<br />

this Ceremonial.<br />

Happy reading Dennis<br />

SPECIAL<br />

ANNOUNCEMENT<br />

As Directed by the Potentate of <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong>,<br />

Noble Barry O’Brien has been assigned the<br />

Chairman of a Committee to undertake the<br />

preparation of cost estimates for the renovation of<br />

the Upper Banquet Hall at <strong>Mocha</strong> Temple.<br />

As was heard at the Stated Meeting of March 9th,<br />

the membership present felt that it was best to obtain<br />

a total price package and know how much work was<br />

needed to bring the hall up to date instead of doing<br />

it a piece at a time. There was a consensus among<br />

the members that the hall needed a lot of work to<br />

bring it up to date and to redecorate. Ceiling, walls,<br />

lighting, decorating and sound system, including<br />

wireless microphones, etc. are all included in the<br />

project for review.<br />

To this end, Noble Barry O’Brien has taken on<br />

the challenge to oversee that every facet of the<br />

renovation project is examined and that bids and<br />

estimates of the necessary work are obtained, then<br />

presenting a fi nal package to your Board of Directors<br />

at his earliest opportunity. The Board of Directors will<br />

then present the fi ndings to the membership at the next<br />

available scheduled Stated Meeting for consideration by<br />

the membership.<br />

It has been suggested that once the total cost of the<br />

work is known, that the Clubs & Units be canvassed<br />

for support. As you may not know, <strong>Mocha</strong> has no<br />

budget for these types of renovations. <strong>Mocha</strong> also<br />

has no offi cial fund raising projects of its own because<br />

it has always relied on the Clubs & Units of <strong>Mocha</strong><br />

to support its needs. A challenge has been issued by<br />

the Norfolk Shrine Club, which appeared in the last<br />

<strong>Mocha</strong> News, to have every Club & Unit in<br />

<strong>Mocha</strong> match or exceed their donation towards the<br />

renovation project. It is recommended that any Club<br />

or Unit wishing to support this project make your<br />

donations payable to <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong> and mark on<br />

the Re: line “Upper Hall Renovation Project” These<br />

special donations will be kept in escrow expressly for<br />

this project.<br />

No monies will be spent on the renovations until the<br />

membership has been appraised of the details and voted<br />

on accepting the plan at an upcoming Stated Meeting.<br />

Fraternally, <strong>Mocha</strong>’s Board of Directors<br />

MOCHA NEWS


Membership Committee - <strong>Mocha</strong> News<br />

Noble Shayne Eldridge<br />

If you don’t already know that our<br />

membership numbers continue to<br />

decline and that the number of<br />

new members each year is<br />

surpassed by those taken by the<br />

Black Camel, then you need to get<br />

out to more Stated Meetings and read the <strong>Mocha</strong><br />

News.<br />

The fact is, this is what is occurring and we - meaning<br />

you, I and every Noble in <strong>Mocha</strong> need to be<br />

concerned and be an active part in turning this<br />

around. I know it can be done as there are lodges and<br />

other Masonic bodies that regularly bring in a good<br />

number of new members each year. I cannot think of<br />

any reason why we<br />

cannot do so.<br />

Along with bringing in<br />

new members, we also<br />

need to keep the Nobles<br />

we have. There are many<br />

reasons why Nobles lose<br />

interest in their Shrine.<br />

We need to uncover these<br />

reasons and do what we can do to ‘fix’ the problem.<br />

The Shrine has provided me and my wife, with a very<br />

enriching experience. We have had lots of fun and made<br />

many new friends. I know that this is the same for many<br />

of you. We need to ensure that each and every Noble<br />

(new or of long-standing) and his wife/family have the<br />

same experience. By doing so, being a member of<br />

<strong>Mocha</strong> will be something every one will want to be a<br />

part of.<br />

The intent of ‘Membership Corner’ will not be to dwell<br />

on the sad numbers of declining membership - it is what<br />

it is. It will be a positive focus on what we can do about<br />

it. In each <strong>Mocha</strong> News and soon on our website, you<br />

will get an update on what your Membership Committee<br />

is doing and to give you some ideas to help you help<br />

your Shrine.<br />

Yes, your Shrine. <strong>Mocha</strong> belongs to each and<br />

everyone of us and we each bear a duty and<br />

responsibility in ensuring it’s future. Remember who<br />

we do this for - the kids. Let’s keep this future alive.<br />

Progress Report #9 - <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong><br />

April 2011<br />

Background<br />

• In December, 2007, the <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong> committed to donating $1 million to Children’s Health Foundation by 2011 to<br />

establish the <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong> Paediatric Orthopaedic Telemedicine Service.<br />

• Through commitment, dedication and numerous fundraising efforts, the <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong> achieved that goal in 2 ½<br />

years – an incredible accomplishment!<br />

• The network officially went ‘live’ in 2010.<br />

• Based at Children’s Hospital with audio video connections to Windsor, Chatham and Kitchener/Waterloo, telemedicine<br />

technology uses specialized video cameras and monitors to allow doctors at Children’s to assess and monitor<br />

treatments long distance in real time.<br />

• The special London <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong> Paediatric Orthopaedic Telemedicine Centre will be named in their honour and<br />

will move from its temporary location at London Health Sciences Centre into the New Children’s Hospital when it<br />

officially opens in September of 2011.<br />

Project Support Update<br />

• At the end of October last year, Tricia Potter fulfilled her role as the Project Manager for MSPOTS.<br />

Alain and Garrett, from Roommates to Friends<br />

This fall, when 18 year-old Alain<br />

walked into his hospital room, the same<br />

room he has had every stay at Shriner<br />

Hospitals for Children® - Canada since he<br />

was two, he was quite surprised to see a young<br />

boy bunking in his bed. Alain was used to<br />

having the same bed, in the same room, ever<br />

since he could remember. Much to his surprise,<br />

on the morning of October 13th, 10 year-old<br />

Garrett became his roommate.<br />

The two boys thought that they had<br />

little in common; Alain lives in Thetford<br />

Mines (Quebec) and Garrett in Regina<br />

(Saskatchewan), they have very different<br />

tastes in music, not to mention the age<br />

difference. "But then, I got to know him"<br />

says Alain. What broke the ice for the boys<br />

was the the Ilizarov external fixator; Alain<br />

underwent a lengthening with one years<br />

before and noticed Garrett's. They struck up a<br />

conversation and found that they had so many<br />

experiences and stories to share about procedures,<br />

medication and recovery. They came to<br />

realize that they had much more in common than<br />

they initially thought. They found in each other<br />

a friend that they could relate to and so did their<br />

families.<br />

For the first time, Garrett's mother Shara felt<br />

comfortable opening up to another mother who<br />

<strong>Mocha</strong> Love Bugs<br />

Gentlemen, start your engines. How<br />

many times have we heard that phrase?<br />

Nobles of the Love Bugs will be<br />

starting their engines after storing<br />

their bugs for the winter and are now<br />

getting ready for the upcoming parade<br />

season. Parades booked so far for<br />

this year: Woodstock - <strong>May</strong> 23,<br />

Thamesford - <strong>May</strong> 23, Spring<br />

Ceremonial - <strong>May</strong> 28, Thamesville -<br />

June 24, Komoka - July 1, Chatham -<br />

July 1.<br />

had dealt with the same experiences as her family,<br />

Nathalie, Alain's mother, was happy to share<br />

her insight about what to expect in the coming<br />

years and how to anticipate the journey that lies<br />

ahead for their family.<br />

Shara was so grateful for Alain's advice to<br />

her son "Sometimes it can be hard, but in<br />

the end, it's all worth it!" he told Garrett.<br />

"My son finally has someone that he can<br />

relate to and look up to" said Shara; she even<br />

compared their relationship to a "big brother<br />

helping out with his little brother".<br />

The boys will keep in touch by phone<br />

and hope to see each other soon. Their<br />

mothers also plan to do the same.<br />

Nathalie has even offered Shara<br />

"advice or just someone to talk to when<br />

things are tough, advice from one mother<br />

to another" and a place to visit next time<br />

they come to the <strong>Shriners</strong> Hospitals for<br />

Children® - Canada.<br />

Alain was born with a leg length discrepancy. He learned to walk with one foot flat<br />

and the other on his toes. Also, one of his feet is much wider than the other so he<br />

cannot wear regular shoes or ice skates. Now, Alain is finishing high school while<br />

working part-time.<br />

Garrett has arthogryposis; his latest surgery required an entire summer of treatment<br />

as an outpatient at the hospital. The fifth grader has always been quite active;<br />

he plays wheelchair basketball and tennis and is an avid swimmer.<br />

We welcome our newest Love Bug<br />

member - Kenneth Cunningham.<br />

Regular monthly breakfast<br />

meetings are held on the first<br />

Saturday of every month at the New<br />

Legion of Honour<br />

The <strong>Mocha</strong> Legion of Honour will again lead the way<br />

at the Spring Ceremonial in Port Elgin. The members<br />

of the colour party are continuously working on their<br />

conditioning to be able to display the excellence that they<br />

have exhibited in the past. The same illustrious group<br />

will perform at the Potentate’s Ball.<br />

The recent difficulties that resulted from the<br />

Commander’s inability to complete his duties, have been<br />

overcome, Past Commander Harold Phillips has taken<br />

the reins and the unit is once again functioning well. The<br />

2nd Lt. Commander’s position has been filled by the<br />

election and installation of Past Great Lakes Commander<br />

Keith Roden, to that position. The unit extends heartfelt<br />

thanks to both these fine gentlemen for their dedication<br />

and devotion to the unit.<br />

I recently had the opportunity to attend the Shrine Bowl<br />

football game in Orlando, Fl. Commander Mike Pittman<br />

and Past Commander Tracy Coughlin of Bahia Legion of<br />

Honour, met us at the Stadium and we were given passes<br />

that allowed us to go anywhere anytime. We were<br />

introduced to the Potentate, the LOH members and their<br />

ladies and treated to a wonderful lunch. We met some of<br />

the players and went on the field to practice the opening<br />

ceremonies. (I have included a photo with Imperial Sir<br />

George Mitchell, Mike Pittman (white shirt), ROTC<br />

student with Canadian flag and myself with Canadian<br />

flag (back to camera) during the opening ceremonies).<br />

The ceremony included LOH from Florida, Georgia, the<br />

Carolinas and Canada. The members of Bahia LOH<br />

extend an invitation to all to come to their dinner/dance<br />

meetings on the 3rd Fri. of most months at the Orlando<br />

Shrine Centre, 2300 Pembrook Dr., Orlando, FL 32810.<br />

They also invite all to attend next year and hope to fill<br />

the field with LOH flags. The ROTC students held a flag<br />

for each of the States, a large U.S. flag carried by 12<br />

students and the U.S. Marines supplied a drill team. This<br />

is an experience I will always remember.<br />

A group of unit members accompanied the GLSA-LOH<br />

Commander, our own, John (Popeye) Smith to the<br />

International Assoc. Legion of Honour convention in<br />

Branson, Missouri and all attest to having a wonderful<br />

time. The photo attached photo was taken at the Necrology<br />

Service (from the left are GLSA-LOH 2nd Lt Commander<br />

Roy Combs, GLSA-LOH Commander John (Popeye)<br />

Smith, GLSA-LOH 1st Lt Commander Ken Morey and<br />

Phoenix, an eagle from Dickerson Park Zoo).<br />

The annual Frankenmuth, Mich. trip is scheduled for<br />

17-18/Jun/2011; contact any of the executive for details.<br />

We will be in need of all of the finely tuned bodies we<br />

can get for the circus on 23/Jun/2011 at Western Fair<br />

Agriplex (2 shows). I hope you all have a wonderful<br />

summer and are able to give me some interesting<br />

material for the next edition.<br />

If you are a Shriner or know a Shriner with military<br />

experience, regular or reserve, we’ d be happy to meet<br />

you and introduce you to a group of wonderful<br />

comrades.<br />

On a beautiful sunny, snow covered March<br />

day, the “Classic Car Club” met at Fort<br />

A tour of the sugar shack, explanation and<br />

demonstration of how maple syrup is made,<br />

plus a wagon ride to the sugar bush was<br />

exciting.<br />

<strong>Mocha</strong> Arab Patrol must make a heartfelt decision<br />

The <strong>Mocha</strong> Arab Patrol, one of the oldest units in<br />

<strong>Mocha</strong> has a long and proud past. The third floor of<br />

<strong>Mocha</strong> Headquarters is adorned with a number of<br />

pictures showing many proud Shriner's in uniforms and<br />

topped off with Fezzes. The unit conducted precision<br />

marching drills, and carried flags, marching to the<br />

beat of their drummers. The numbers swelled after<br />

each war, with many masons, veterans of the wars, using<br />

a skill they were taught in perilous times.<br />

As the age of the units members grew, less and less of the<br />

Nobles were able to 'hit the street'. Slowly the numbers<br />

have dropped and despite a recent attempt to bolster the<br />

numbers it has become clear that the time has come to<br />

make some decision as to the future of the unit, and to<br />

determine the best course of action for the future. When<br />

it became apparent that a new uniform would cost nearly<br />

a thousand dollars, and that the other street units had<br />

Colin McLachlin (on L) and Jim Welsh (on R)<br />

picked up the slack, the executive have<br />

decided that there should be a meeting at<br />

which a motion will be brought forward.<br />

That motion will entail wrapping up the unit,<br />

disposing of the assets, and discharging the executive<br />

from their responsibilities.<br />

On <strong>May</strong> the 12th, at 7:30 p.m. there will be a meeting<br />

for all who were former members of the Arab Patrol,<br />

to hear a motion, discuss the motion, and to approve<br />

or amend the motion in accordance with the wishes of<br />

those present. It will be held at <strong>Mocha</strong> Shrine Centre<br />

in the Board room.<br />

Fraternally,<br />

Roadrunner Unit<br />

The Roadrunners have just completed their late winter<br />

meeting and they are presently preparing for their spring<br />

parades. Noble Ron McNicol, the unit’s parade<br />

chairman, has presented all Nobles with their dates for<br />

the spring, which includes our trip to Port Elgin in <strong>May</strong><br />

for the Spring Ceremonial weekend. When the weather<br />

improves, our small cars will be cleaned and tuned up<br />

ready for this years’ parade program.<br />

This past February, two Roadrunners, Noble Ron McNicol<br />

and Noble John Parker and their wives had the privilege<br />

to travel with the Moslem Shrine from Detroit on a trip<br />

to Hawaii; the colourful islands of sun and warmth. It<br />

was superbly organized and all the events and feztivites<br />

were excellently planned which included a wonderful<br />

tour conducted by the Aloha Shrine of Honolulu’s Shrine<br />

Hospital. This was a visit all Shrine members would<br />

enjoy and always remember. We would like to thank our<br />

new friends in the Moslem Shrine for a fabulous two<br />

weeks in Hawaii.<br />

Our Roadrunner Unit contains many nobles from<br />

different <strong>Mocha</strong> locations. We have five Nobles who<br />

reside in the Town of St. Marys. One Noble is Ron<br />

McKnight who lives with his wife Karen in St. Marys.<br />

Noble Ron became a Master Mason in 1984 and he is<br />

presently the secretary in St. James Lodge #73. He was<br />

installed as a member of the Shrine in 1991 and by 1999<br />

he was an active member with the Roadrunners. Noble<br />

Ron has shown that he is a model leader which made him<br />

the perfect choice for Hospitality Chairman of the<br />

Roadrunner Unit. He can be observed in our several<br />

parades driving his blue tow truck (see picture). The<br />

Unit has had occasions to employ avoidance tactics<br />

when certain trucks are doing their own manoeuvres.<br />

In the Stratford on Avon Shrine, Noble Ron served as<br />

President in 1991 and he is presently on the committee<br />

for Sick Children.<br />

He and his wife Karen have two children and four<br />

grandchildren. Their daughter, Shannon, lives in St.<br />

Marys with her son and daughter and their son Trevor,<br />

who is an Air Traffic Controller, lives with his wife and<br />

two sons in Yellowknife, NWT.<br />

For 40 years Noble Ron was employed in St. Marys at<br />

Norampac as a General Foreman. While at work Noble<br />

Ron had the nickname of “Durst” and no one seems to<br />

know why. Perhaps when asked he can tell you why. He<br />

remembers that his work and time was taken up, quite<br />

often, by Noble Ron McNicol who needed special<br />

attention to stay on task.<br />

UNIT NEWS<br />

In his spare time Noble Ron likes to golf at least twice a<br />

week and he supports a low handicap. He enjoys<br />

attending our several parades and entertaining the local<br />

supporters. He has always followed hockey and he has<br />

been involved with St. Marys Minor Hockey and he<br />

served ten years as a director with the Intermediate<br />

Stonetown Flyers.<br />

If you have ever visited St. Marys during the Christmas<br />

season a must spectacle to be observed is at the Milt<br />

Dunnell Field, known as the “flats”. In this location<br />

you will see several Christmas light displays in various<br />

shapes as well as trains, dinosaurs, dragons and many<br />

others. These constructions are the work of Noble Ron<br />

McKnight and have been created for the enjoyment of<br />

all visitors to the “flats” during the Christmas Season.<br />

Noble Ron claims that over several years much of his<br />

time has been spent as the “Keeper” for Nobles Leon<br />

Roth and Ron McNicol and it has been a very arduous<br />

task taking care of these two. Ron certainly enjoys his<br />

opportunity to travel and he has visited various locations.<br />

If you have an opportunity to chat with him ask him<br />

about his passport dilemma when he was at the Toronto<br />

Airport on route to Hawaii. This will put a smile on your<br />

face.<br />

Remember that the <strong>Mocha</strong> Roadrunners are always<br />

pleased to discuss our vehicles with you and to<br />

participate in your feztivities. Feel free to call Noble<br />

Ron McNicol, parade chairman, to book our Roadrunner<br />

Unit.<br />

Bruce Shrine Club<br />

The Bruce Shrine Club met for its annual installation<br />

and Ladies night in Chesley.<br />

Although the weather outside was cold, warm fellowship<br />

was the order of the evening at the Installation.<br />

This installation was proven to be an extra special<br />

one for the Bruce Shrine Club, as Potentate Jack<br />

Cumming and the Divan helped to install his son,<br />

Scott Cumming as the new President of the Bruce<br />

Shrine Club.<br />

The event was catered by his son Ian and Jack's wife<br />

Helen, and both Scott's and Ian's wives also attended,<br />

so it was a family affair all around!<br />

Food, Fun and Fellowship, all courtesy of the<br />

Cumming family!<br />

During the evening, we had the honor of installing<br />

three new <strong>Shriners</strong>, Bruce McLean (Ken McLean’s<br />

son), Jack Nancekivell and Clarke Pollock, both of<br />

whom are prominent citizens of Kincardine. These<br />

Nobles could not make the Ceremonial on <strong>May</strong> the<br />

twenty seventh and eighth.<br />

After the executive was installed, Scott took the<br />

microphone as elected President and addressed The<br />

Potentate as Potentate "Dad" and Lady "Mom". We<br />

think this may be a first for <strong>Mocha</strong>, and it was well<br />

received by us all, in the spirit and manner in which<br />

it was intended.<br />

Later in the evening, Past President Kevin MacKay<br />

was presented by Divan and club secretary, Frank<br />

Eagleson with the Bruce Shriner of the Year award.<br />

All in all, a wonderful evening was held by all, in<br />

which many pictures were taken.<br />

We include a few of these for the <strong>Mocha</strong> News, to<br />

show the good time held by all at the Bruce Shrine<br />

Club<br />

I finish by quoting Past president Kevin MacKay's<br />

poem to us all:<br />

I'm proud to be a Shriner,<br />

I'm proud to wear the plaid<br />

(Yes we all know it’s a tartan!)<br />

I'm proud to help the children,<br />

Who need our help so bad!<br />

Norfolk <strong>Shriners</strong><br />

The Small Group With A BIG Heart<br />

Wednesday March 9th, 2011 was the most recent<br />

designated meeting in London.<br />

The Norfolk <strong>Shriners</strong> [That’s Us!!] fielded 6 bodies. We<br />

had to because most of us are Temple Guards. There was<br />

a grand turn out of about 32 Nobles, as a result after<br />

everyone had their “just do” it was nigh on 10pm before<br />

we adjourned.<br />

It was a lively meeting, well handled by our Potentate<br />

Jack Cumming and his staff.<br />

Many items were “cussed” and diss-“cussed” and again<br />

the topic of the state of the Temple was brought up. We<br />

realize that the area encompassed by <strong>Mocha</strong> is very<br />

large, and that nobles from the more distant areas never<br />

have, and perhaps never will, visit the temple. So we put<br />

these letters into the <strong>Mocha</strong> news to let all nobles know<br />

the situation that now exists.<br />

Yep we need new chairs [I like the green one myself] we<br />

also need new tables.<br />

The ceiling is showing its age, as well as several stains<br />

from the days when smoking was allowed. The carpet is<br />

waving farewell, and the walls still have the original<br />

finish. Add to that all the old incandescent spot /<br />

floodlights. Commonly known as “watt suckers”<br />

[careful how you say that!] and it is very clear that we<br />

need to do something.<br />

Jonnie Mitchell once sang “You don’t know what you’ve<br />

got till it’s gone”<br />

Well she could very well have been singing about the<br />

Temple, Once it’s gone, it’s gone.<br />

We are not about to let that happen, to this end the<br />

Norfolk section has launched a challenge to all other<br />

sections to pitch in and help, very shortly we shall be<br />

doing a mail out to each section highlighting the<br />

condition and needs of our Home Headquarters / office /<br />

ETC.<br />

More than that we are digging deep into our rather<br />

shallow pockets to stump up as much as we can, the<br />

GOOD news is that so far about $900 has been<br />

promised. The VERY good news. It would appear that<br />

the “dune buggy” section have been VERY thrifty [read<br />

CHEEEP] and are preparing to make a substantial<br />

donation.<br />

This is we hope a good kick off to get things rolling,<br />

the next step of course is to keep moving ahead. In the<br />

CLUB NEWS<br />

near future we hope to be able to donate funds from our<br />

various activities and cordially invite you to do the<br />

same.<br />

SO, you ask, “are we <strong>Shriners</strong>, dedicated to helping<br />

children? Or, a catering club?“<br />

Well, we are an organization that at present has a<br />

financial drain, we have to subsidize the Temple, and<br />

the bar, God forbid that should ever close! BUT by<br />

updating our facilities.<br />

[I like the green chair myself]. It should be possible for<br />

the Temple to not only become self sustaining, but<br />

[Hopefully] turn a profit and therefore be able to fund<br />

our main activities. Can this be done? You bet!!. But<br />

only if we all pitch in. [I green chair the like myself]. We<br />

are not asking you to forgo any projects you may have<br />

planned, or in progress, but if you should have a “slush”<br />

fund [as we have] or a petty cash Fund [as we do] or a<br />

miscellaneous cash Fund, money put to one side and not<br />

earmarked for any particular use, we ask that you give<br />

consideration to making a donation to the temple<br />

building Fund.<br />

Our temple secretary is prepared to keep a copy of all<br />

donations / donors to keep us all honest, and see that<br />

credit is given where credit is due. So there you have it.<br />

Thank you for your consideration, and give the<br />

matter some thought.<br />

As usual al garmatical, and spilling mis-steaks are dun<br />

on parpose .<br />

Yours in Shrinedom. Noble Barry Mitton<br />

PS. Noble Wayne Brown likes the black chair, but he<br />

didn’t write this note I did!<br />

Noble, Oriental Bandsman, Leroy E. Behrns.<br />

The London <strong>Mocha</strong> Temple Oriental Band has honoured Noble Leroy E.<br />

(Lee) Behrns, a Past President of our proud Band and now we mourn<br />

Lee’s passing. A Noble of the London <strong>Mocha</strong> Shrine, a bright light has<br />

been extinguished but will carry on in spirit. Lees loving wife Marion<br />

was also a great supporter of Lee’s love for the Oriental Band and<br />

attended many of our parades. Our condolences are most sincerely given<br />

to his dear wife Marion and family.<br />

We will cherish his memory in our hearts<br />

Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, the Nobles of the <strong>Mocha</strong><br />

Oriental Band wish to “Talk to you”<br />

As we continue to greet Nobility everywhere.<br />

Noble David Fickling Apologies and once again<br />

Congratulations on being elected Chief Rabban and<br />

NOT the Oriental Guide as mistakenly recorded in the<br />

last issue of the <strong>Mocha</strong> News. Sorry Dave. Noble Bob<br />

Marshall was elected Oriental Guide and the Band<br />

congratulates Bob as well as all other elected and<br />

appointed to serve our Children and as well our Loyal<br />

and Noble needs.<br />

Noble Dale Hern past Director of the Band has suffered<br />

a set back and is really not well but he insists that he will<br />

soon return to the Band. Dale suffered not one but a few<br />

attacks of the heart and we DO wish him a fast recovery,<br />

he is too good to lose.<br />

Welcome Noble Dan Lampman our newest Bandsman<br />

and already learning the Musette, well done Dan, you<br />

did the right thing and we congratulate you and give you<br />

praise for been so sensible for uniting with our ranks.<br />

Things done and yet to be done: -<br />

The Jigs Dinner enjoyed by all attending on March<br />

14th, was a great success as usual, we owe caterer<br />

Dimitri and staff a compliment that would make a<br />

Shriner proud.<br />

This period is our slack time, time for rehearsals but no<br />

parades, however, a busy time soon lies ahead. The<br />

Oriental Band and the Trumpet Band have been<br />

requested by the Potentate to play at the Potentates<br />

Ball on Saturday, <strong>May</strong> 7th. This request therefore<br />

proves that we are worthy of good entertainment with<br />

our several melodious sounds. Take note you new<br />

Nobles, we are looking for you.<br />

To date, we have a few requests for parades: - <strong>May</strong><br />

7th. Potentates Ball; <strong>May</strong> 23rd. Thamesford<br />

Calithumpian Parade; <strong>May</strong> 28th. Spring Ceremonial,<br />

Port Elgin; June 24th. Thamesville; July 30th. Formosa<br />

Centennial Parade; Sept. 24th. Thorndale.<br />

Tentative - Belmont; Parkhill; London Santa Clause<br />

Parade. There are others not yet confirmed. It’s good to<br />

be busy and active for the sake of our Children and our<br />

pride.<br />

The <strong>Mocha</strong> London Oriental Band is forever in need<br />

of new youngish members. If you are 60 but feel like<br />

40, can walk or blow or do both together, don’t belong<br />

to another Unit or would like a change, then you are for<br />

us. There is no need to have a musical background as<br />

we will teach you to play the kind of music we promote.<br />

We have a great deal of fun, travel with our Ladies and<br />

above all, we delight the public with our entertaining<br />

mode. How about it fellows, we are about 60 strong<br />

but many can no longer walk or blow but still enjoy our<br />

company. Call the President NOW Noble Bill Hurn or<br />

his wife Helen at 519-630-5591.<br />

Bruce Shrine Club<br />

As a member of the Bruce Shrine Club, who as you are<br />

all well aware are known for the wearing of “Bruce<br />

County Tartan” blazers, which are the signature of<br />

the Bruce Shrine Club, it was very interesting to see<br />

pictures in the last MOCHA News of our friends in the<br />

Sault Shrine Club wearing their plaid blazers. It’s great<br />

to see other clubs with a colorful history and good taste.<br />

Way to go Nobles!!<br />

We are so proud this year to have our very own Ill. Sir<br />

Jack Cumming and Lady Helen as Potentate and First<br />

Lady of MOCHA for “The CUMMING Year!” I say this<br />

as Ill. Sir Jack will be installing his son, Noble Scott<br />

Cumming into the position of President of the Bruce<br />

Shrine Club on the 11, April, 2011. This will be an<br />

historical event for our club to have a father son team to<br />

work with for this eventful year. It is great to be a<br />

Shriner and we truly are a family. Also coming up<br />

quickly is the Potentates Ball being held <strong>May</strong>, 7th at<br />

the Lamplighter Inn, London, Ontario. Tickets are<br />

philanthropy now more than ever to spread the word<br />

about the great work we do and all the fun and<br />

fellowship we have doing it.<br />

I have an unknown quote that I would like to share with<br />

you titled:<br />

ANYWAY<br />

People are unreasonable, illogical and self<br />

centered. Love them anyway!<br />

If you do good people will accuse you of<br />

selfish ulterior motives.<br />

Do good anyway!<br />

The good you do today will be<br />

forgotten tomorrow.<br />

Do something good everyday, anyway!<br />

Don’t forget to take part and have fun. As we here in<br />

the Bruce say;<br />

I’m Proud to be a Shriner; I’m Proud to wear the plaid,<br />

I’m Proud to help the Children,<br />

Who need our help so bad.<br />

Join Together to Celebrate...<br />

<strong>Shriners</strong> International Awareness Day<br />

Mark your calendars and start making plans!<br />

<strong>Shriners</strong> International Awareness Day is coming up on June 6, and nobles around the world are<br />

encouraged to participate in this exciting opportunity to celebrate the fraternity and recognize the day the<br />

Imperial Council was founded - June 6, 1876. The Imperial Council is the governing body of <strong>Shriners</strong> International.<br />

On June 6, <strong>Shriners</strong> everywhere are asked to wear their fez, if appropriate, or a hat, shirt, lapel pin or other item<br />

with the fraternal logo to help recognize fellow nobles and increase awareness about <strong>Shriners</strong> International. Many<br />

<strong>Shriners</strong> are also organizing special events at their temples and in their communities.<br />

"The goal of <strong>Shriners</strong> International Awareness Day is for each and every noble to join together for one<br />

purpose - to support our great fraternity," said Imperial Membership Committee Chairman George Mitchell.<br />

"<strong>Shriners</strong> International Awareness Day is an opportunity for us to increase awareness about <strong>Shriners</strong> International while<br />

celebrating the fraternity's impressive achievements over the past 137 years. The first Shrine temple opened in New York<br />

City in 1872."<br />

Here are a few ways nobles can participate in <strong>Shriners</strong> International Awareness Day:<br />

• Wear their fez on <strong>Shriners</strong> International Awareness Day when appropriate<br />

(during an official <strong>Shriners</strong> function).<br />

• Show pride in <strong>Shriners</strong> International by wearing a hat, shirt, lapel pin or<br />

other item with the fraternal logo.<br />

• Organize an event at their temple or in their local community. Invite the<br />

public to participate in the event to increase awareness about the local<br />

temple and <strong>Shriners</strong> International.<br />

• Contact the Temple Recorder or Public Relations Chairman<br />

to order copies of the Shriner Primer. Hand out copies to<br />

neighbors, friends, family members and any one else who<br />

may be interested in learning more about <strong>Shriners</strong><br />

International and <strong>Shriners</strong> Hospitals for Children.<br />

• Include information about <strong>Shriners</strong> International Awareness Day on the<br />

temple Web site and in the temple calendar, publications and electronic<br />

communications. Announce the date at temple and club meetings. Be<br />

sure that each and every noble knows about <strong>Shriners</strong> International<br />

Awareness Day and encourage them to participate.<br />

• Contact one of the <strong>Shriners</strong> Hospitals for Children to schedule a tour.<br />

Organize a group tour for local nobles, family members or interested<br />

community members.<br />

This international day of recognition every June 6 will continue to be an opportunity<br />

for <strong>Shriners</strong> to share information about the fraternity, its history and the benefits<br />

of becoming part of an organization dedicated to fun, fellowship and philanthropic<br />

support.<br />

<strong>Shriners</strong> in Action<br />

Eric Collis was born with Club Feet,<br />

they were upside down, and pointed<br />

sideways. Local Doctors began treating<br />

Eric with Magic Shoes, that were held<br />

together with an Aluminum Bar.This<br />

involved putting on his "Magic Shoes"<br />

each night, but since his heels weren't<br />

in the right place they kept falling off,<br />

thus after much crying on Eric's part and<br />

frustration on his Parents, it was decided<br />

that these shoes were not the answer.<br />

Norfolk Shrine Club became aware of<br />

Eric's problem, and decided to sponsor<br />

him as an infant, he was taken to Erie<br />

Hospital, and both feet were operated<br />

on. During the course of the next few years, Eric received<br />

Reconstructive Surgery, on both feet and Norfolk Shrine<br />

Club provided transportation, meals, and accommodations.<br />

After a long recovery period he was able to achieve his dream<br />

of playing Hockey, and at age 5, he was enrolled in the Tykes,<br />

Novices, Atoms, and later Pee Wee, with the Simcoe Warriors.<br />

He also played Baseball in Vittoria, and Soccer in Delhi.<br />

Moving on a few years Eric<br />

graduated from Simcoe<br />

Composite School with Honors,<br />

and is hoping to go to Mohawk<br />

College in Sept.<br />

As Eric grew older it became<br />

apparent that both heels were<br />

extended outward, which caused<br />

poor load bearing, and much pain.<br />

He got a job at Zellers as Stock Boy<br />

but his feet and ankles were not<br />

up to the strain<br />

On Jan. 30/11 He was again admitted to Erie, his left leg<br />

had a steel rod inserted in his heel and ankle, and a cast<br />

applied. He has since had the cast changed twice, and the<br />

rod removed. He is currently in walking cast, and well on his<br />

way to recovery.<br />

The Collis Family are most grateful to the Norfolk Shrine Club,<br />

and Erie Hospital for<br />

making it possible for<br />

him to lead a normal<br />

pain free life.<br />

To all a<br />

very big<br />

THANK YOU.<br />
