Potentate’s Appointments<br />

Potentate’s Report<br />

This is my first opportunity to thank<br />

each and every Noble of <strong>Mocha</strong> Temple<br />

for allowing me the opportunity of<br />

serving as your Potentate in <strong>2013</strong>. I<br />

humbly accept this great honour and<br />

promise faithfully to carry out the many<br />

duties and responsibilities associated<br />

with this high office.<br />

My personal thank-you goes out to<br />

Ill. Sir Norm Camp and his team for<br />

a truly outstanding Installation event<br />

on Friday, January 11, <strong>2013</strong>. The attendance and support<br />

expressed by so many Nobles and Ladies and the presence<br />

and encouragement of thirteen Past Potentates was sincerely<br />

appreciated and will be fondly remembered by Lady Deb<br />

and I forever.<br />

An excellent Divan was invested and appointed for the <strong>2013</strong><br />

Shrine year and I look forward to working with each and<br />

every one of them to identify and attain goals that will be in<br />

the best interest for the growth and improvement of <strong>Mocha</strong><br />

Temple and ALL of its Nobility.<br />

Recorder’s Corner<br />

by Bill Butcher<br />

Well Brethren, I cannot believe how<br />

fast the last year has gone, this just<br />

goes to show, that when you are<br />

having fun, time goes by incredibly<br />

fast. In the last year I have learned<br />

a lot in the position that I was put<br />

into and I might add that I am<br />

enjoying what I am doing. I have<br />

had a great deal of help from various<br />

Nobles/people who shall remain<br />

unnamed, they know who they are and they have my<br />

many thanks for the support and help over the last year.<br />

Through working with the Potentate and Directors we<br />

have accomplished quite a bit this past year, our great<br />

new Banquet Hall and the Painting of the Exterior<br />

of our Great Building along with repairs to the lower<br />

bathroom areas, the Signage that has been put up in the<br />

Parking Lot, also the parking lot line painting. Nobles<br />

we have spent some money in the last year, however, this<br />

new look at different areas should make us proud to be a<br />

member of <strong>Mocha</strong> Temple.<br />

Chaplain’s Chat<br />

by Gord Simmons<br />

When I was working on my doctorate I chose as the<br />

title Many Parts One Body, One Body Many Parts. This<br />

was based on Chapter 12 of I Corinthians. The Apostle<br />

Paul was writing to a divided church and reminding<br />

the members that like the human body each member<br />

was important and dependent on the others. They were<br />

interdependent. They needed one another to be strong.<br />

Shrine Temples are like the human body and the clubs<br />

and units cannot exist without being part of the Temple.<br />

The clubs and units are the organs and the limbs of the<br />

Temple. Wherever there is a club, or unit, it is the visible<br />

presence of the Temple to the local area. The reputation<br />

and the wellbeing of our fraternity and our charities<br />

are dependent on the goodwill of our friends and<br />

neighbours which in turn is built upon the local good<br />

works and reputation of the nobles.<br />

The clubs and units depend on nobles being active<br />

and supportive in all aspects of their activities; in<br />

turn the Temple is dependent on these same nobles<br />

for supporting the maintenance and the charities of<br />

the Temple. Each is dependent on the other. A strong<br />

Temple has strong clubs and units working together to<br />

build up the fraternity and when necessary helping the<br />

weaker members to become stronger. As our fraternity<br />

moves into other parts of the world nobles need to be<br />

supportive of new Temples, new clubs and units by<br />

being actively participating, promoting and sharing<br />

their various talents to build up the greatest charity in<br />

the world.<br />

At his recent visit to <strong>Mocha</strong>, Ill. Sir Al Madsen emphasized<br />

the absolute necessity that membership and membership<br />

The new Potentate along with the new Divan will be<br />

growth become the No. 1 priority in all of Shrinedom. With<br />

adding some new ideas to the operation of <strong>Mocha</strong> in<br />

our numbers steadily decreasing and our <strong>Shriners</strong> Hospital<br />

the near future. Ill. Sir Rob Parker has a great Spring<br />

for Children commitments increasing, or just leveling off<br />

Ceremonial planned along with a great many other<br />

at best (third and first party revenue and increased hospital<br />

things on his agenda for the year.<br />

efficiency aside), a point of no return will eventually be<br />

Brethren, I would like to take this opportunity to thank<br />

reached and support will not be sustainable. With this<br />

each and every one of you that have allowed me to stay<br />

priority in mind, I look forward to working with our ever<br />

in as your recorder. As most of you know I enjoy doing<br />

strong Membership Committee and welcome Noble Jeff<br />

<strong>February</strong> <strong>2013</strong><br />


from the<br />


New Year, New Beginnings!<br />

Welcome Nobles and Ladies to <strong>2013</strong>. Let me start<br />

by congratulating Potenate Rob Parker on his new<br />

position. I have known Illustrious Sir for a few<br />

years now and have worked closely with him when<br />

I was Membership Chair. His dedication to the<br />

Shrine is unmovable and I know Illustrious Sir will<br />

continue to work for the organization and give it the<br />

leadership that it needs.<br />

Congrats to all of the other appointments and newly<br />

elected officers.<br />

As the New Year began, I felt it was important to<br />

bring new change to the <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>News</strong>. We have<br />

redesigned the news so that it is easier to read. The<br />

process began by looking at the whole organization<br />

and where it was going, what colours Imperial in<br />

Tampa is using, what style, and what the main<br />

messaging is. As we compared the look and feel of<br />

Imperial communications we felt that we needed a<br />

more modern and clean design. By this I’m referring<br />

to the use of simple fonts and colours that don’t<br />

distract the reader when reading.<br />

What hasn’t changed is our focus on <strong>Mocha</strong>, and<br />

news about what all the clubs and units are doing.<br />

You’ll find an increased emphasis on our activities<br />

and what is happening at our hospitals and the<br />

<strong>Mocha</strong> region. Nobles: keep the pictures and<br />

articles coming.<br />

I welcome your feedback on this edition, and would<br />

ask for your comments on what we did well, and<br />

where we still could improve.<br />

Closing out, I want to congratulate the team that<br />

spearheaded the redesign of the <strong>Mocha</strong> Ballroom.<br />

It is a top notch facility and can surpass any banquet<br />

facility in our area. We should be proud of such a<br />

facility.<br />

<strong>2013</strong> INSTALLATION<br />

On behalf of Noble Harry Hewbank – Chairman,<br />

the Membership Committee congratulates Ill. Sir<br />

Rob Parker and the Divan on their installation.<br />

The Ill. Sir echoed the remarks given by our<br />

Imperial Potentate Alan W. Madsen when he said<br />

that ‘Membership is our Number One Priority’ –<br />

we couldn’t agree more! We have to turn things<br />

around. As of the last information I have available,<br />

<strong>Mocha</strong> has 2733 Nobles. Five years ago<br />

we had 3,302 – a decrease of 17%. We need to<br />

attract new Nobles – especially younger Nobles.<br />

A breakdown by age shows the following:<br />

Age Under 45 6%<br />

45 to 65 25%<br />

Over 65 69%<br />

I know that you attend your lodge and other<br />

Masonic functions (if you are not getting out<br />

to your Lodge – Get Back To Lodge! Support<br />

Craft Masonry!) and as you do, I am very sure<br />

that you know some Masons under the age of<br />

45 who are not yet Nobles. Ask them – Have<br />

you considered joining the Shrine? It is an easy<br />

question. This will open up the discussion and<br />

you can share with them the fun you have as a<br />

Shriner and tell them about the World’s Greatest<br />

Philanthropy! Direct them to the BeAShrinerNow.<br />

com website.<br />

Is it as easy as this to turn our membership<br />

numbers around by asking a simple question?<br />

Yes – it can be! If only 10% of our current Nobility<br />

each brought in one new Noble, this would<br />

bring in 270 new Nobles!! We might have to get<br />

a longer rope for the Ceremonial parade – what<br />

a sight that would be.<br />

Your membership committee will be contacting<br />

as many Lodges as we can over the next few<br />

weeks to invite ourselves to your Lodge meeting<br />

to provide a presentation to the brethren about<br />

what being a Shriner is all about. (You don’t have<br />

to wait for us – give me a call 519-668-7209).<br />

Nobles,<br />

Strathocha Shrine Club thanks the<br />

Nobles who attended the Spring<br />

Ceremonial that was hosted by our<br />

club making it a successful event.<br />

To reward our club members they<br />

were given the summer off to<br />

recuperate except for one Sunday<br />

in August when the club held its<br />

annual Golf Day and steak supper.<br />

The ladies were invited and it was<br />

a great day of exercise (I hear<br />

some of the Nobles spent a good<br />

part of the day in the rough looking<br />

for golf balls), fi ne food and plenty<br />

of fellowship.<br />

We weren’t allowed to sit and<br />

relax for long as the Saturday<br />

after Labour Day is our annual<br />

Lobsterfest which we hold<br />

in conjunction with the local<br />

Rotary Club. Noble Mark Fonger<br />

chaired this successful event<br />

with a sell out of 700 tickets. The<br />

evening started with “ice cold”<br />

refreshments, buckets of mussels<br />

and trays of “jumbo” shrimp”, all<br />

for a price (have you ever met a<br />

Shriner who wasn’t trying to sell<br />

you something). While all this was<br />

going on a live band was playing<br />

“down east” music to get the folks<br />

in the right mood. Noble Lyle Smith<br />

and his “band of cooks” provide<br />

the main course of surf (a whole<br />

lobster) or turf (a steak) or if you<br />

were really hungry, both. This was<br />

followed by a DJ playing dance<br />

music which was enjoyed by all<br />

until past midnight. An event of this<br />

size requires plenty of help and I<br />

am pleased to state that 60% of<br />

our club membership along with a<br />

few volunteers helped.<br />

Being fall time, it was time to hold<br />

our monthly dinner meetings on<br />

the 1st Tuesday of the month,<br />

social at 6:00 pm, and at 7:00 pm<br />

delicious meals prepared by<br />

Noble Rick Collier followed by<br />

interesting guest speakers and our<br />

club business. At our December<br />

meeting the Divan attended, they<br />

installed the executive for <strong>2013</strong>,<br />

they are as follows:<br />

President – Dusty Sutherland,<br />

1st V.P. – Tim Clark, 2nd V.P.<br />

– Stephen Freymond; Past<br />

President – Jim Pedden;<br />

Directors (5) – Brian Payne,<br />

John Nywening, Anthony<br />

Beattie, Bob Hart, and Wade<br />

Milliken; Secretary – Bill Newitt;<br />

Treasurer – Rick Collier.<br />

I hear our executive is planning a<br />

busy year for our club with a trip<br />

and taking part in Shrine events<br />

outside Strathroy. Our club has<br />

been participating in many Santa<br />

Claus parades in our surrounding<br />

area as well as selling Christmas<br />

cakes and our every day sales of<br />

Vidalia Onion relish, regular or hot.<br />

If you need some contact Noble<br />

Rick Collier at 519-245-3625.<br />

Would you like become an active<br />

Shriner in a Club where our<br />

number 1 priority is fellowship<br />

and hosting and participating in<br />

different events that you will want<br />

to take part in. If you answered<br />

“yes”, please contact any<br />

On Christmas Day,for my fi rst<br />

time I went to the London<br />

Children’s Hospital with Nobles<br />

Tim Clark and Tim Eastman from<br />

Strathocha Shrine Club to join<br />

other <strong>Shriners</strong> and Ladies from<br />

the <strong>Mocha</strong> Shrine Centre to help<br />

Santa Clause deliver presents to<br />

brighten the day for the children<br />

that had to spend Christmas day<br />

in the hospital.<br />

Each child received a large<br />

shopping bag full of age<br />

appropriate gifts.<br />

There were a good number of<br />

Nobles in attendance,some<br />

stated that they had been coming<br />

to this event for 30 years,others<br />

thought that the <strong>Shriners</strong> had<br />

been doing the visit for close to<br />

50 years.<br />

The smiles on the faces of the<br />

kids and their parents were worth<br />

the time.<br />

Illustrious Sir Noble Dave Fickling<br />

was said to have been there and<br />

I know I heard his voice but didn’t<br />

see his Potentates Fez or smiling<br />

face.<br />

Santa was guided by Laurie<br />

MOCHANEWS | <strong>February</strong> <strong>2013</strong><br />

Greetings from the<br />


Hope you all had a great Christmas<br />

as we wish you all a wonderful<br />

Happy New Year!<br />

We have had a tremendous 2012<br />

as a club and we are working<br />

hard to make <strong>2013</strong> even bigger<br />

and better. Under the keen eye<br />

of our President, Noble Alex<br />

Cameron, our elected executive<br />

team has guide the Nobles of<br />

the BSC through some heavy<br />

discussions and as a club we<br />

have come out the other end more<br />

determined than ever to work<br />

together in an effort to make the<br />

Bruce Shrine Club the best it can<br />

be. The pictures I’ve attached to<br />

this article show the many good<br />

times we have had at numerous<br />

Christmas Parades that invited our<br />

participation this 2012 Christmas<br />

season. Our fi rst Christmas parade<br />

was in London in early November<br />

and continued to Owen Sound,<br />

Port Elgin, Mildmay, Hanover,<br />

Chesley and fi nally in Neustadt.<br />

Noble Terry Mills added a bubble<br />

machine to his parade unit and<br />

along with this and our new trailer<br />

full of enthusiastic Nobles we<br />

took the prize for best parade<br />

unit in Owen Sound and Chesly’s<br />

Santa Clause Parades. A big<br />

thank you to all the Nobles and<br />

Ladies of the Bruce Shrine Club<br />

who supported us at these many<br />

parades and shared the fellowship<br />

at the wonderful after glows. Our<br />

Rameses Brothers who invite<br />

us to share in the Owen Sound<br />

Christmas Parade with them asked<br />

if we could hand out some small<br />

stuffed toys along the parade route<br />

since our golf carts are manned<br />

by two Nobles. The Nobles who<br />

were left with the hand out task<br />

took great pleasure in the face<br />

to face contact they had with<br />

special children along the parade<br />

route. These Nobles took some<br />

care to try and make hand outs to<br />

children who may be from needy<br />

families and children with obvious<br />

disabilities. The smiles they<br />

received from this small stuffy toy<br />

gesture where heart warming to<br />

say the least. We tried to carry this<br />

into some of our other Christmas<br />

parades as Noble Doug Gould<br />

took the time to purchase a bag<br />

of stuffi es from Goodwill and gave<br />

them to our golf cart crews for<br />

distribution. A small cost for some<br />

great big smiles.<br />

Many of our Nobles were<br />

recognized during their Christmas<br />

Cake sales activities by members<br />

of the public who had seen them<br />

on the televised London and Owen<br />

Sound Christmas parades. This<br />

added a little celebrity and great<br />

publicity for our cause. Noble<br />

Ken Cunningham, BSC Cake<br />

Chairman, was happy to report<br />

a complete sell out of Christmas<br />

products this year as our club<br />

members worked hard selling at<br />

venues in Kincardine, Port Elgin,<br />

Walkerton and Hanover.<br />

Some great news, our 2nd annual<br />

Quilt Draw was very successful<br />

and the three hand made quilts<br />

donated to our club will be in the<br />

hands of the winners of the draw<br />

in time for Christmas. You can see<br />

the pictures from the draw held<br />

at the home of Noble Cannon<br />

Michael Farr and Lady Kathleen @<br />

www.kincardinetimes.com<br />

Ill Sir Grant Fotheringham, Past<br />

Potentate of the <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong>,<br />

drew the winning names for the<br />

three quilts, with help from Noble<br />

Ron MacLennan, chairman of the<br />

quilt draw committee; Kathleen<br />

Farr, president, and Lia Ellyatt,<br />

treasurer of the Northern Nile Club;<br />

and Jim Hudvagner of the quilt<br />

committee, Monday afternoon 17th<br />

December, 2012, in Kincardine.<br />

And the work continues as we<br />

work on events for <strong>2013</strong> such as<br />

the BSC Annual Golf Tournament<br />

Under the direction of Nobles Tom<br />

and Paul Zorzi this grand Golf<br />

event is set for the 22nd of June,<br />

<strong>2013</strong>. This will be kicking off at 12<br />

noon with a shot gun start. The<br />

entry fee is still only $125 per/<br />

player and includes all prizes and<br />

dinner at the Club House. Get your<br />

foursome together and don’t miss<br />

this great time at the Saugeen Golf<br />

Club.<br />

A new event planned for <strong>2013</strong> will<br />

be the 1st annual BSC Motorcycle<br />

Draw being pushed forward by<br />

incoming President Elect Lorne<br />

Attenborough. We will be raffl ing<br />

off a <strong>2013</strong> Harley Davidson Street<br />

Glide with the winning ticket being<br />

drawn on the 21st of October at<br />

a to be planned event in Saugeen<br />

Shores (stay tuned). We are<br />

planning to be at the Western Fair<br />

Grounds in London for the “World<br />

of Motorcycles Expo, <strong>February</strong> 8th<br />

to the 10th, set and ready to move<br />

a large number of tickets on this<br />

great touring motorcycle. If you can<br />

make it down don’t forget to stop<br />

by and say hello! (and purchase a<br />

ticket).<br />

I can’t tell you how great it is to<br />

be a Shriner! All I can say is, “I’m<br />

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

wear the plaid. I’m proud to help<br />

the children, who need our help so<br />

bad!”<br />

All the best wishes to our newly<br />

installed Divan for <strong>2013</strong> and to all of<br />

you for your efforts to make <strong>2013</strong> a<br />

great year for MOCHA Temple and<br />

the many supporting clubs that<br />

Members of Pal-<strong>Mocha</strong> have had<br />

a busy fall attending many fall fair<br />

parades in our area with our fl oat<br />

and Pooky the clown. Plus the<br />

several Santa Clause parades we<br />

travelled to during November and<br />

December.<br />

On November 15 th , Pal-<strong>Mocha</strong><br />

featured our annual Feather Party,<br />

which has been held for many<br />

years. This is our main moneymaker<br />

for the club, which turned out to<br />

be very successful, with some<br />

members of <strong>Mocha</strong> Divine<br />

attending and our loyal members<br />

from the Strathroy Shrine Club. A<br />

total of 115 <strong>Shriners</strong> and community<br />

minded men attended to make the<br />

party one of the best we’ve had<br />

in years, which certainly will help<br />

<strong>Shriners</strong> Hospitals for children.<br />

However, even the NHL hockey lock<br />

out hit our club when we could not<br />

auction off the Maple Leaf hockey<br />

tickets that are given to us by Noble<br />

Al Barlow. Al’s son Tom who is CEO<br />

of Coca-Cola North America gives<br />

us 4 of each, hockey and basketball<br />

Raptor tickets to be auctioned off at<br />

the party.<br />

A tip of the Fez certainly must<br />

be given to Noble John “Duke”<br />

Lemaich and Lady Pat of Mount<br />

Forest. Duke and Pat just recently<br />

celebrated their 65 th Wedding<br />

Anniversary. The couple has had<br />

an illustrious life together. Coming<br />

from Sudbury after their marriage,<br />

they moved to Hamilton, buying<br />

a variety store. Then, the young<br />

couple got into the Hotel business<br />

in Hagersville during the 1950s,<br />

which eventually led them to move<br />

to Mount Forest in 1960. They<br />

operated the Royal for 15 years<br />

during the boom era for small town<br />

hotels in Ontario.<br />

Duke is a Postmaster of St. Albans<br />

Lodge 200 in Mount Forest and<br />

was also a District Deputy Grand<br />

Master in 1972 for Grey District.<br />

After selling the Royal Hotel they<br />

both went into semi retirement.<br />

Duke being an avid golfer<br />

introduced Pat to the game and<br />

they spent their winters at Sarasota,<br />

Florida, for several years, hitting the<br />

golf ball year-round.<br />

Today they live comfortable in their<br />

home in Mount Forest and they<br />

An Extremely Busy Fall<br />

in Pal-<strong>Mocha</strong> Land<br />

enjoy an occasional trip to a Casino<br />

where Pat is luckier than husband<br />

Duke.<br />

When this writer joined St. Albans<br />

Lodge in the mid 1960s, Duke<br />

was my sponsor and mentor. I<br />

learned my 1 st , 2 nd and 3 rd degree<br />

obligations word by word, line by<br />

line, and paragraph by paragraph<br />

from Duke. A far cry from today<br />

when you are given the little black<br />

and told to memorize it.<br />

Duke still manages to get out to<br />

Dodge periodically with his lawyer<br />

son Richard who is also a Past<br />

Master at St. Albans and a past<br />

District Grand Master of Grey<br />

District.<br />

Just rounding out the fi rst weekend<br />

of December 2012 and tallying up<br />

my cake, shortbread and candy<br />

sales and the grand total is going to<br />

round off for a total of $1662 which<br />

is $300 more than last year. Eh<br />

boys, that’s a lot of phone calls and<br />

deliveries around town.<br />

Nobles – with old man winter days<br />

just ahead of us…Let’s not forget<br />

our fellow Nobles and brother<br />

Masons who are shut-ins who<br />

cannot get out and about. Give<br />

them a phone call or better still, buy<br />

some coffee and donuts and pay<br />

them a visit.<br />

God Bless and keep healthy.<br />

The Installation of Offi cers for the<br />

attendance of Potentate Dave<br />

Fickling and his Divan.<br />

The evening included conversations,<br />

refreshments, supper, presentations,<br />

Installation of Offi cers, concluding<br />

with inspiring words spoken by<br />

both Potentate Dave Fickling and<br />

President Noble Lewis MacRae.<br />

Potentate Dave Fickling touched<br />

on the importance of each Shriner<br />

to make ourselves known to<br />

the public, through the means<br />

of advertisements, parades,<br />

community functions, stressing<br />

our never ending work and<br />

commitment towards The <strong>Shriners</strong><br />

Hospitals for Children.<br />

When the public sees our Red Fez<br />

and our presence at a function,<br />

they automatically know we are<br />

there mainly because of our great<br />

philanthropy and dedication<br />

towards our community.<br />

He also mentioned that his visit to<br />

The Lambton Shrine Club was his<br />

last offi cial visit during his tenure of<br />

Potentate.<br />

Background<br />

In December, 2007, the <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong> committed to donating<br />

$1 million to Children’s Health Foundation by 2011 to establish<br />

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

Through commitment, dedication and numerous fundraising<br />

efforts, the <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong> achieved that goal in 2 1/2 years –<br />

an incredible accomplishment!<br />

The network offi cially went ‘live’ in 2010. Based at Children’s<br />

Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre, with audio video<br />

connections to Windsor, Chatham and Kitchener/Waterloo,<br />

telemedicine technology uses specialized video cameras and<br />

monitors to allow doctors at Children’s to assess and monitor<br />

treatments long distance in real time.<br />

The positive impact of the <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong> Paediatric<br />

Orthopaedic Telemedicine Service includes:<br />

• Offering families a welcome alternative to travelling to London,<br />

minimizing time away from work, days missed at school, and<br />

hours spent driving.<br />

• More effective and effi cient use of the doctors’ time because<br />

of less travel needed to the sites in Windsor, Chatham and<br />

Kitchener/Waterloo.<br />

Special Tour for the Imperial Potentate<br />

This past fall, Children’s Health Foundation was pleased to<br />

learn the Imperial Potentate was planning to visit London and<br />

would be interested in knowing more about the <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong><br />

Paediatric Orthopaedic Telemedicine Service (MSPOTS). On the<br />

afternoon of November 19, 2012, we welcomed the Illustrious Sir<br />

Alan Madsen and Lady Jan for a tour of Children’s Hospital and<br />

a Telemedicine demonstration. The Illustrious Sir David Fickling<br />

and Lady Patricia, Noble Rob Parker and Lady Debbie, Noble<br />

Robert Marshall and Lady Vesta, and Emmanuelle Rondeau<br />

(Head, Communications and Marketing, Montreal <strong>Shriners</strong><br />

Hospital) also joined us.<br />

The tour began in the Atrium of the new Children’s Hospital, and<br />

the Imperial Potentate was made aware of the gift from the late<br />

Mrs. Dorothy Palmer in honour of her late husband John Palmer,<br />

a dedicated Shriner, which made possible the garden along the<br />

back wall of the Healing Garden and the waterfall.<br />

Sir Alan was pleased to see that the <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong>’ generosity<br />

to Children’s Hospital has earned them a place in the top<br />

category on the Children’s Health Foundation Donor Wall of<br />

$1,000,000 and more.<br />

Dr. Tim Carey, Orthopaedic Surgeon at Children’s Hospital,<br />

linked us to the John McGivney Centre in Windsor where one of<br />

his young patients joined us via MSPOTS to demonstrate a gait<br />

analysis. Sir Alan’s questions of Dr. Carey demonstrated his deep<br />

knowledge of paediatric orthopaedics.<br />

Sir Alan Madsen and Lady Jan<br />

enjoyed seeing the mural depicting<br />

the generous support of the <strong>Mocha</strong><br />

<strong>Shriners</strong> over the years.<br />

Sir Alan Madsen and<br />

Sir David Fickling at the<br />

Donor Wall in the New<br />

Children’s Hospital in<br />

London.<br />

Our guests were impressed to learn Dr. Carey had done a<br />

Fellowship at the <strong>Shriners</strong> Hospital in Tampa and that he consults<br />

periodically with the <strong>Shriners</strong> Hospital for Children in Montreal.<br />

The tour continued on Level 2 to see the <strong>Shriners</strong> mural in the<br />

Orthopaedics area, also made possible by Mrs. Palmer. The<br />

tree branches depict the many ways in which the <strong>Shriners</strong> have<br />

supported Children’s over the years, including buying hospital<br />

equipment, Christmas morning visits for children in the hospital,<br />

and establishing MSPOTS.<br />

On Level 6 (the Inpatients fl oor), Val Rousom, Director of<br />

Children’s Care, showed the group one of the special playrooms<br />

and features in the patient rooms.<br />

A brief tour of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, where the most<br />

fragile of babies receive lifesaving care, concluded this special<br />

visit. Children’s Health Foundation was honoured to have the<br />

opportunity to meet Sir Alan and Lady Jan and to welcome our<br />

other guests from the <strong>Shriners</strong>.<br />

Other <strong>News</strong> from Children’s Health Foundation<br />

as the new President and CEO of Children’s Health Foundation,<br />

effective January 14, <strong>2013</strong>. Debbie Comuzzi, our former President<br />

MOCHANEWS | <strong>February</strong> <strong>2013</strong><br />


Born: December 15th 2007<br />

Diagnosis: Type 1 Osteogenesis Imperfecta,<br />

better known as Brittle Bone Disease<br />

Logan is a typical boy who wants to jump, play tussle<br />

and do things any ordinary boy would want to do. But<br />

between September 2009 and July 2011, Logan suffered<br />

five broken legs, three of which were major femur<br />

breaks. These required rodding surgery of his right<br />

femur and three hip spica casts. These fractures occurred<br />

simply by tripping and falling from a standing position.<br />

Logan’s parents, John and Nicole, made frequent<br />

trips to the Children’s Hospital at London Health<br />

Sciences Centre. Logan’s future as a physically active<br />

boy was slowly fading away. Many questions remained<br />

unanswered and Logan’s parents began to look for<br />

alternatives for treating their little boy.<br />

On an otherwise ordinary day, John and Nicole’s luck<br />

changed. John was approached by <strong>Mocha</strong> Shriner<br />

Andrew Iwanis regarding Logan’s situation. Noble<br />

Andrew connected John and Nicole to two very<br />

dedicated <strong>Shriners</strong>, Noble George Vanslack and Roger<br />

Rogers. Over the next few weeks, Nicole would explain<br />

little Logan’s condition to the experts at <strong>Shriners</strong><br />

Hospital in Montreal. And as all the stars were aligned,<br />

Logan was admitted to this very special hospital.<br />

The <strong>Shriners</strong> Montreal Hospital specializes in various<br />

aspects of orthopedic care, but more importantly to<br />

Logan, they specialize in Osteogenesis Imperfecta,<br />

Logan’s condition. Dr. François Fassier, a pediatric<br />

orthopedic surgeon at the <strong>Shriners</strong> Hospital, introduced<br />

Logan’s family to the prospect of “Duvall Rods”. The<br />

Fassier-Duval Rod is used to strengthen the long bones<br />

of the legs and arms and grows as the child grows. It is<br />

currently the standard of care and is used in more than<br />

45 countries worldwide.<br />

Through the <strong>Shriners</strong> hospital network, Logan<br />

receives world class care. Since joining the program in<br />

Montreal, Logan has had four treatments which have<br />

proven to be a huge success for the little guy. He has<br />

not suffered a broken bone in well over a year. This is a<br />

miracle to a family who were used to seeing their little<br />

guy constantly in a body cast. The summer of 2012 was<br />

especially great as Logan had now gone three years<br />

without a cast.<br />

Many thanks go out to John, Nicole, and Logan for<br />

sharing their journey, a testament to the great work<br />

of the <strong>Mocha</strong> <strong>Shriners</strong>.<br />

Dear Sir;<br />

This picture was taken on the Island of St. Maarten.<br />

Our Potentate, his first Lady and many of the past tpotentatesand and wives<br />

are in the photo. A total of 52 <strong>Shriners</strong> and wives took part in the excursion.<br />

All enjoyed the trip even though the temperature rose daily to 40 degrees and higher.<br />

The Island of St. Maarten is approximately 17 square miles and is split between the French<br />

and Dutch. The French portion is still controlled by the French Government and keeping<br />

that part as a Province. Casinos are certainly out of question as well the currency is equally<br />

maintained in Euros.<br />

The Dutch part is wide open. One can find in Philipsburg 100 casinos, and up to 150<br />

jewellery stores along the road. The spoken language is English in the whole of the island.<br />

The peculiar part of the island is that the West coast is facing the Atlantic Ocean and the<br />

East is facing the Pacific.<br />

What does a tourist do all day long when it is so hot? Well, the either lay on a lounge, go<br />

into any of the pools, or go into the ocean for a swim. Food and drink was okay and everyone<br />

enjoyed the stay.<br />

January <strong>2013</strong><br />

Dear Fellow Nobles and Ladies,<br />



The December schedule began<br />

on Monday the 4th with a stellar<br />

performance in the beautiful New York Grand Lodge<br />

Auditorium. Donna Kane, whose daughter is a scoliosis<br />

patient at the Philadelphia Hospital, and her friends (all<br />

Broadway performers) entertained us with their favorite<br />

show tunes. Mark the first Monday of December <strong>2013</strong><br />

on your schedule for the next edition of this event.<br />

Broadway Loves Shriner Performer<br />

Attending the <strong>Shriners</strong> home office employee service<br />

awards luncheon confirmed what we already knew…<br />

we have a great group of very loyal employees. Forty<br />

employees with years of service ranging from five to<br />

30 years were honored for their contributions to our<br />

organizations. Combined, their efforts reflect 455 years<br />

of dedication and commitment.<br />

After the awards were presented, everyone celebrated<br />

and had a wonderful time.<br />

Shrine Bowl<br />

While in South<br />

Carolina, we visited<br />

the Greenville Hospital<br />

where our tour was<br />

given by patient<br />

Marina Hooker. A visit<br />

to Santa’s workshop<br />

was a special place for<br />

us and the patients to<br />

visit. Hejaz Potentate<br />

Ron Kennedy and his<br />

lady, Shirley, hosted a<br />

dinner in our honor.<br />

Former <strong>Shriners</strong> Hospitals patients Kristian Champion,<br />

who is the reigning Miss Wheelchair North Carolina,<br />

and Sydney Sill, the current Miss Teen South Carolina<br />

shared their stories with those in attendance. It was a<br />

good evening with lively conversation.<br />

Yours in the Faith,<br />

Rose Parade Madsen<br />

A special thank you to the Awesome Shrine Club of<br />

Al Malaikah <strong>Shriners</strong> for hosting an early New Year’s<br />

Eve at the San Mareno Masonic Lodge for our group.<br />

We observed<br />

New Year’s on<br />

EST because our<br />

transportation left<br />

the hotel the next<br />

morning at 5:30<br />

and 6 a.m.<br />

We also want to<br />

mention that <strong>Shriners</strong> Hospitals for Children came in<br />

first place in the United Airlines 10 Million Charity<br />

Miles campaign. Thank you to everyone who voted<br />

and helped spread the word. This will be a tremendous<br />

benefit to our patients and to our transportation funds.<br />

Our next stop was the Boston hospital for the Board<br />

of Governor’s monthly meeting, chaired by David<br />

McKechnie. We joined hospital employees for their<br />

holiday luncheon in the cafeteria that day. Excitement<br />

was high as winners of the auction baskets were<br />

announced. The themed baskets had been assembled by<br />

various work groups. Bidding was intense.<br />

In <strong>February</strong> the Shrine fraternity will showcase and<br />

emphasize the Legacy program for <strong>Shriners</strong>. My son<br />

and I are proud members and proud of the Shrine<br />

tradition in our family. Please take a moment to learn<br />

more about the program by visiting <strong>Shriners</strong> Village<br />

or contacting the Membership Development office at<br />

membership@shrinenet.org or 813-281-8101.<br />

Efforts are continuing to bring “Peace and Harmony”<br />

between <strong>Shriners</strong> International and the Grand Lodge of<br />

Arkansas and the Grand Lodge of South Carolina. The<br />

door remains open for additional discussions to resolve<br />

these issues with both Grand Masters before they leave<br />

office in <strong>February</strong> and April of <strong>2013</strong>. We will keep<br />

you apprised of any developments! Thank you for your<br />

interest and concern.<br />
