** Deceased

Summer is going by fast and we have been busy representing

Al Menah at many functions and events. We have traveled to several

out of town events and had quite a few functions at Al Menah too.

The Ladies Luncheon was outstanding and the guest speaker

and her daughter, one of our patients, gave a great performance.

Thanks to Debbie Parman and Mary Ann Phelps and their committee

for a job well done.

Another thanks goes to Vernon Blackburn, Geoff King, Ronnie

Brown and James Lampley and all those that work hard to make the

Casino Party a success.

Your Divan and several Nobles and Ladies attended the Imperial

Session in Daytona Beach, Florida last month…the weather was hot

and humid, but we managed to get thru it. Thanks to Billy Cullen and

Everett Vanhoosier for driving us to and from the events all week.

Congratulations to Imperial Sir Jim Cain on being elected

Imperial Chief Rabban!! There were lots of meetings and activities

to attend. Our new Imperial Potentate, Gary Bergenske, has set a

membership goal of 12,000 new Shriners in the next 12 months.

Nobles and Ladies, the Front Cover of this month’s Shriner is

Imperial Sir’s statement and logo. In order to achieve this goal,

Al Menah will need to create and/or restore 225 nobles in the next

12 months. Your Divan is committed to this challenge, are you???

Our Fall Ceremonial will be September 23 rd , please do your part to

help us achieve this goal. The initiation fee is $100.00 and all you

need to do is “Ask a Master Mason to be a Shriner”.

The August Stated Meeting is the 15 th . Come out and enjoy

some good fellowship and learn what is on the agenda for the coming

months.

Nobles and Ladies, again thank you for all you do for Al Menah

and our Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Yours in the Faith,

Frank Hester

Potentate

“Pride, Passion & Purpose”

CHIEF RABBAN

Nobles, thank you for what you do!

Please don’t forget to sell your

Circus Ads. The Circus is right

around the corner on October

6th, 7th and 8th. There will be

animals, so bring your children

and grandchildren for a great

show.

The Divan has been very busy…

Hospital Day at Lexington was great.

We have a hospital that we can be proud of. We will

be attending Divan Hospital Days at Lexington and

Cincinnati in the coming weeks. We just got back

from Imperial Session in Daytona Beach, FL. It was

a wonderful time. Please make plans to be there next

year July 15th-July 19th to see your very own Illustrious

Sir Jim Cain be installed as Potentate of Shriners

International. This will be Potentate’s Trip.

Again, thank you for letting me serve on your Divan.

A big thank you to everyone

involved with the Easter Egg

Hunt. It was a great crowd

and everyone had a wonderful

time. May is going to be a

busy month and we hope

to see everyone at some

of the following events:

Paper Sale, Dedication of the new

Lexington Hospital and Fun Fest, just

to name a few.

We are off to a great start for 2017 with our membership

drive. We have over 25 new nobles at this

point. If your Shrine Clubs have some candidates,

then just contact the office or any Divan member to

schedule an initiation. Keep up the great work!

We all got on the stage to

announce the Imperial Session

in Nashville 2019 for Imperial Sir Jim Cain and you

needed sunglasses for all the jewels and bling reflecting

off the fezzes the crowd had on - it was great.

If you have the time next year, you really should

plan to go with us to Daytona for Jim’s installation. It

will be a great party and we can finally determine if

spitting in the ocean really does raise the water level...

that is if we can find the ocean after the party.

Shriners: A History of Fellowship and Philanthropy

Introducing a new book that charts the history of the Shriners International fraternity and its

official philanthropy, Shriners Hospitals for Children, from their beginnings to approximately

June 2017.

The history of Shriners International is the story of individuals who, in 1872, came together

in the spirit of Masonic values, fellowship and fun. These inspired, passionate men formed a

worldwide fraternity of brotherhood and later established a globally recognized pediatric health

care system.

Shriners International became an established part of American culture and ultimately spread

its influence and good works across the world. Along the way, an official philanthropy was

created that has helped more than 1.3 million children enjoy healthier, more productive lives.

Thanks to the unwavering determination, dedication and hard work of millions of Shriners

and supporters over the years, two organizations have left a lasting impact on humanity. And

with the help of new generations who share this passion for enjoying life and helping others,

Shriners International and Shriners Hospitals for Children will continue making a difference for

decades to come.

Paper Sale Donation from Kroger

On Monday, 7/18 Potentate Jeff Head and members of the Williamson

County Shrine Club were with Kroger Management at their Belle

Meade store where they presented a $1,000.00 to us for the Shrine

Hospitals for Children. The Kroger Manager was an acquaintance of

Scotty and Teresa Travis who put this together for the Al Menah Shrine

Hospitals for Children Paper Sale.

This is a portion of a message from Phyllis Berry, wife of this

Kroger Store Manager, Michael Berry.

Let me tell you, our son was a Shrine Hospital patient

and we are forever grateful The experience was an

awakening in humanity. The care was phenomenal. The

friendship my family made. The support from the men in

your fraternity was phenomenal. We thank you for all you

and your members do for children across the country.

Sincerely

Phyllis Berry

Fraternally,

My how time flies, and from dark

to light it’s time to gear back up for

our Shrine Stated meetings. June

and July were busy months with

the Fishing Trip, Casino party, 4th

of July parades, Imperial Sessions,

and the Casino Trip. The memories

made were to last a lifetime.

Now as we move into August

we have the Southeastern Shrine

Association in Warner Robbins

GA on Aug. 23-26. It is sure to be a

great time as we prepare to compete

in the competitions that await

in the peach state.

It’s a privilege to be a Shriner,

but it is a honor to serve our goals

as Shriners.

Legion of Honor

It has been a long hot summer but

seems like it’s going too fast as the

Legion of Honor has been so busy.

We had a successful paper sale in

early May. After that nine of us

went to Fun Fest in Pigeon Forge

and took our van and float for the

parade. It was fantastic, we all enjoyed

it. No trophies but fun and

lots of food and drink. Thanks to

all of you who participated. Onion

sales not as good as in previous

years but not due to lack of participation

or hard work. The onions

were just not as good as usual but

it all went for a good cause.

Several of us went to the new

Lexington Shrine Hospital for the

opening ceremony on 21st of May.

It was great to get to see the new

modern facility which will help

our Shrine patients so much.

On Memorial Day we did the

massing of colors for ceremonies

at two Veterans cemeteries as we

do every year. On Sunday at the

one in Pegram and on Monday at

the one in Madison. We used our

new set of American flags which

looked beautiful and our troops all

looked sharp. Good job guys.

We had a Legion of Honor get

together on 21st of June at Colton’s

Steak House in Dickson. This was

also Noble Gene Hunter’s birthday

which we celebrated at the event

and surprised him. It was great!

On the 26th of June we posted

colors for Teamsters Union #327 at

Embassy Suites and received a nice

donation for the Shrine Hospitals.

We were in the Greenbrier 4th

of July parade and as always it was

great along with the hospitality

which had good BBQ and fixings.

Thanks to the Greenbrier Lodge

and the Robertson County Shrine

Club.

We posted colors for the Tennessee

Labor Management Conference

on 25th July at Lowe’s Vanderbilt

and received another nice

donation for the Shrine Hospitals.

We are all looking forward

to SESA in Warner Robins, GA

on 23rd thru 26th August. We

will have some practice for competition

before that. Watch your

emails for more information.

We have a Ladies Extravaganza

coming up on the 4th of Nov. The

Legion of Honor will be participating

with a booth selling breakfast

foods like donuts, cinnamon rolls,

coffee, etc. Also we will be selling

soft drinks, iced tea, etc. Please

attend and bring your wives. This

is not just for ladies, there’s something

for everybody. So come on

down and enjoy it.

Thanks to all of you who do so

much for the Legion, the Shrine

and the children by helping the

hospitals.

Prayers for our military, first

responders, doctors, nurses and

police officers.

May God Bless,

Provost Guard

The Provost Guard Drill Team,

went to Dixie in Panama City and

represented Al Menah Temple really

well. They knew that Al Menah

was there. The Drill Team won

1st place trophy. The Competion

Team won 1st place. At the drawing

at the banquet. Barry Cassetty

won Half gallon Jack Daniel

Whiskey engraved in Gold lettering

with Dixie engraved on it. Ken

Loftis won M&P 9mm Pistol and

Phillip Waynick won a $600.00

Ladies bracelet, so Al Menah Temple

was well recognized. Looking

forword to going back next year.

The Completion Team is now

practicing for S.E.S.A. in August.

Hope everyone has had a good

couple months in the Dark.

MOTOR CORPS

Well, here we are in midst of the

dog days of Summer.

Although the Temple may have

been dark, we certainly haven’t

been idle. Parades, dinners, Imperial

and upcoming Southeastern.

And there is still lots more to do.

We are still focused on Membership,

having fun! BROTHER-

HOOD: Don’t call me brother unless

you know it’s meaning; Don’t

call me brother unless we ARE

brothers: Those that say you can’t

choose family do not understand

the meaning of BROTHERHOOD.

I choose to call you my Brother for

life, through the bad and through

the good.

I challenge each one of you to

come out to the events planned,

join us at Stated Meeting to see

what is going on in YOUR Shrine

Center, volunteer to help whenever

and wherever you can without

being asked to, visit a Hospital,

encourage new membership.

Worth repeating… Find the

F-U-N in being a Shriner! I did,

although it sadly seems to be missing

from a few.

Announcing Birdies for Charity

We are excited to announce the launch of a brand-new initiative, Birdies for Charity — a fun

and friendly golf-themed fundraising competition.

Now through November 1, 2017, golf fans

nationwide can guess the number of birdies that

will be recorded during the 2017 Shriners

Hospitals for Children Open while supporting

life-changing care for kids.

Supporters who guess the correct, or closest,

number of birdies will automatically be entered

to win an ultimate Las Vegas getaway, which

includes: round trip airfare for two (2) to Las

Vegas, Nevada for the 2018 Shriners Hospitals

for Children Open, three (3) nights hotel

accommodations, VIP experience at the

tournament during the 3rd and 4th rounds, two

(2) tickets to a Las Vegas show, and a meet-andgreet

opportunity with the 2018 tournament

champion.

HOW IT WORKS:

• Supporters visit lovetotherescue.org/birdies-for-charity to guess the number of birdies

that will be made during the 2017 tournament and donate to their favorite hospital.

• The individuals with the correct, or closest, guess will automatically be entered to win a

VIP experience at the 2018 tournament in Las Vegas. Other great prizes include

autographed tournament pin flags and tournament apparel packages that will be

awarded to the next closest guesses.

• The hospital that receives the most monetary donations via the Birdies for Charity

program will be awarded the opportunity to host the 2018 Shriners Hospitals for

Children Open Media Day. The event will include an appearance from the 2017

tournament champion, a patient visit, press conference and meet-and-greet

opportunity for local hospital supporters.

• The tournament covers all administrative costs for the program and turns over 100% of

all monies collected to Shriners Hospitals for Children.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

Spread the word.

Tell your friends, family and anyone else who is interested in helping Shriners Hospitals for

Children that Birdies for Charity is underway!
