** Deceased<br />

Summer is going by fast and we have been busy representing<br />

Al Menah at many functions and events. We have traveled to several<br />

out of town events and had quite a few functions at Al Menah too.<br />

The Ladies Luncheon was outstanding and the guest speaker<br />

and her daughter, one of our patients, gave a great performance.<br />

Thanks to Debbie Parman and Mary Ann Phelps and their committee<br />

for a job well done.<br />

Another thanks goes to Vernon Blackburn, Geoff King, Ronnie<br />

Brown and James Lampley and all those that work hard to make the<br />

Casino Party a success.<br />

Your Divan and several Nobles and Ladies attended the Imperial<br />

Session in Daytona Beach, Florida last month…the weather was hot<br />

and humid, but we managed to get thru it. Thanks to Billy Cullen and<br />

Everett Vanhoosier for driving us to and from the events all week.<br />

Congratulations to Imperial Sir Jim Cain on being elected<br />

Imperial Chief Rabban!! There were lots of meetings and activities<br />

to attend. Our new Imperial Potentate, Gary Bergenske, has set a<br />

membership goal of 12,000 new Shriners in the next 12 months.<br />

Nobles and Ladies, the Front Cover of this month’s Shriner is<br />

Imperial Sir’s statement and logo. In order to achieve this goal,<br />

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

12 months. Your Divan is committed to this challenge, are you???<br />

Our Fall Ceremonial will be September 23 rd , please do your part to<br />

help us achieve this goal. The initiation fee is $100.00 and all you<br />

need to do is “Ask a Master Mason to be a Shriner”.<br />

The August Stated Meeting is the 15 th . Come out and enjoy<br />

some good fellowship and learn what is on the agenda for the coming<br />

months.<br />

Nobles and Ladies, again thank you for all you do for Al Menah<br />

and our Shriners Hospitals for Children.<br />

Yours in the Faith,<br />

Frank Hester<br />

Potentate<br />

“Pride, Passion & Purpose”

CHIEF RABBAN <br />

Nobles, thank you for what you do!<br />

Please don’t forget to sell your<br />

Circus Ads. The Circus is right<br />

around the corner on October<br />

6th, 7th and 8th. There will be<br />

animals, so bring your children<br />

and grandchildren for a great<br />

show.<br />

The Divan has been very busy…<br />

Hospital Day at Lexington was great.<br />

We have a hospital that we can be proud of. We will<br />

be attending Divan Hospital Days at Lexington and<br />

Cincinnati in the coming weeks. We just got back<br />

from Imperial Session in Daytona Beach, FL. It was<br />

a wonderful time. Please make plans to be there next<br />

year July 15th-July 19th to see your very own Illustrious<br />

Sir Jim Cain be installed as Potentate of Shriners<br />

International. This will be Potentate’s Trip.<br />

Again, thank you for letting me serve on your Divan.<br />

A big thank you to everyone<br />

involved with the Easter Egg<br />

and everyone had a wonderful<br />

time. May is going to be a<br />

busy month and we hope<br />

to see everyone at some<br />

of the following events:<br />

Paper Sale, Dedication of the new<br />

Lexington Hospital and Fun Fest, just<br />

to name a few.<br />

We are off to a great start for <strong>2017</strong> with our membership<br />

drive. We have over 25 new nobles at this<br />

point. If your Shrine Clubs have some candidates,<br />

then just contact the office or any Divan member to<br />

schedule an initiation. Keep up the great work!<br />

We all got on the stage to<br />

announce the Imperial Session<br />

in Nashville 2019 for Imperial Sir Jim Cain and you<br />

needed sunglasses for all the jewels and bling reflecting<br />

off the fezzes the crowd had on - it was great.<br />

If you have the time next year, you really should<br />

plan to go with us to Daytona for Jim’s installation. It<br />

will be a great party and we can finally determine if<br />

spitting in the ocean really does raise the water level...<br />

that is if we can find the ocean after the party.<br />

Shriners: A History of Fellowship and Philanthropy<br />

Introducing a new book that charts the history of the Shriners International fraternity and its<br />

official philanthropy, Shriners Hospitals for Children, from their beginnings to approximately<br />

June <strong>2017</strong>.<br />

The history of Shriners International is the story of individuals who, in 1872, came together<br />

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

worldwide fraternity of brotherhood and later established a globally recognized pediatric health<br />

care system.<br />

Shriners International became an established part of American culture and ultimately spread<br />

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

created that has helped more than 1.3 million children enjoy healthier, more productive lives.<br />

Thanks to the unwavering determination, dedication and hard work of millions of Shriners<br />

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

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

Shriners International and Shriners Hospitals for Children will continue making a difference for<br />

decades to come.<br />

Paper Sale Donation from Kroger<br />

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

County Shrine Club were with Kroger Management at their Belle<br />

Meade store where they presented a $1,000.00 to us for the Shrine<br />

Hospitals for Children. The Kroger Manager was an acquaintance of<br />

Scotty and Teresa Travis who put this together for the Al Menah Shrine<br />

Hospitals for Children Paper Sale.<br />

This is a portion of a message from Phyllis Berry, wife of this<br />

Kroger Store Manager, Michael Berry.<br />

Let me tell you, our son was a Shrine Hospital patient<br />

and we are forever grateful The experience was an<br />

awakening in humanity. The care was phenomenal. The<br />

friendship my family made. The support from the men in<br />

your fraternity was phenomenal. We thank you for all you<br />

and your members do for children across the country.<br />

Sincerely<br />

Phyllis Berry<br />

Fraternally,<br />

My how time flies, and from dark<br />

to light it’s time to gear back up for<br />

our Shrine Stated meetings. June<br />

and July were busy months with<br />

the Fishing Trip, Casino party, 4th<br />

of July parades, Imperial Sessions,<br />

and the Casino Trip. The memories<br />

made were to last a lifetime.<br />

Now as we move into August<br />

we have the Southeastern Shrine<br />

Association in Warner Robbins<br />

GA on Aug. 23-26. It is sure to be a<br />

great time as we prepare to compete<br />

in the competitions that await<br />

in the peach state.<br />

It’s a privilege to be a Shriner,<br />

but it is a honor to serve our goals<br />

as Shriners.<br />

Legion of Honor<br />

It has been a long hot summer but<br />

seems like it’s going too fast as the<br />

Legion of Honor has been so busy.<br />

We had a successful paper sale in<br />

early May. After that nine of us<br />

went to Fun Fest in Pigeon Forge<br />

and took our van and float for the<br />

parade. It was fantastic, we all enjoyed<br />

it. No trophies but fun and<br />

lots of food and drink. Thanks to<br />

all of you who participated. Onion<br />

sales not as good as in previous<br />

years but not due to lack of participation<br />

or hard work. The onions<br />

were just not as good as usual but<br />

it all went for a good cause.<br />

Several of us went to the new<br />

Lexington Shrine Hospital for the<br />

opening ceremony on 21st of May.<br />

It was great to get to see the new<br />

modern facility which will help<br />

our Shrine patients so much.<br />

On Memorial Day we did the<br />

massing of colors for ceremonies<br />

at two Veterans cemeteries as we<br />

do every year. On Sunday at the<br />

one in Pegram and on Monday at<br />

the one in Madison. We used our<br />

new set of American flags which<br />

looked beautiful and our troops all<br />

looked sharp. Good job guys.<br />

We had a Legion of Honor get<br />

together on 21st of June at Colton’s<br />

Steak House in Dickson. This was<br />

also Noble Gene Hunter’s birthday<br />

which we celebrated at the event<br />

and surprised him. It was great!<br />

On the 26th of June we posted<br />

colors for Teamsters Union #327 at<br />

Embassy Suites and received a nice<br />

donation for the Shrine Hospitals.<br />

We were in the Greenbrier 4th<br />

of July parade and as always it was<br />

great along with the hospitality<br />

which had good BBQ and fixings.<br />

Thanks to the Greenbrier Lodge<br />

and the Robertson County Shrine<br />

Club.<br />

We posted colors for the Tennessee<br />

Labor Management Conference<br />

on 25th July at Lowe’s Vanderbilt<br />

and received another nice<br />

donation for the Shrine Hospitals.<br />

We are all looking forward<br />

to SESA in Warner Robins, GA<br />

on 23rd thru 26th August. We<br />

will have some practice for competition<br />

before that. Watch your<br />

emails for more information.<br />

We have a Ladies Extravaganza<br />

coming up on the 4th of Nov. The<br />

Legion of Honor will be participating<br />

with a booth selling breakfast<br />

foods like donuts, cinnamon rolls,<br />

coffee, etc. Also we will be selling<br />

soft drinks, iced tea, etc. Please<br />

attend and bring your wives. This<br />

is not just for ladies, there’s something<br />

for everybody. So come on<br />

down and enjoy it.<br />

Thanks to all of you who do so<br />

much for the Legion, the Shrine<br />

and the children by helping the<br />

hospitals.<br />

Prayers for our military, first<br />

responders, doctors, nurses and<br />

police officers.<br />

May God Bless,<br />

The Provost Guard Drill Team,<br />

went to Dixie in Panama City and<br />

Team won 1st place. At the drawing<br />

at the banquet. Barry Cassetty<br />

Whiskey engraved in Gold lettering<br />

with Dixie engraved on it. Ken<br />

Loftis won M&P 9mm Pistol and<br />

Phillip Waynick won a $600.00<br />

was well recognized. Looking<br />

forword to going back next year.<br />

Well, here we are in midst of the<br />

dog days of Summer.<br />

Although the Temple may have<br />

been dark, we certainly haven’t<br />

been idle. Parades, dinners, Imperial<br />

and upcoming Southeastern.<br />

And there is still lots more to do.<br />

We are still focused on Membership,<br />

having fun! BROTHER-<br />

HOOD: Don’t call me brother unless<br />

you know it’s meaning; Don’t<br />

call me brother unless we ARE<br />

brothers: Those that say you can’t<br />

choose family do not understand<br />

the meaning of BROTHERHOOD.<br />

I choose to call you my Brother for<br />

life, through the bad and through<br />

the good.<br />

I challenge each one of you to<br />

come out to the events planned,<br />

join us at Stated Meeting to see<br />

what is going on in YOUR Shrine<br />

Center, volunteer to help whenever<br />

and wherever you can without<br />

being asked to, visit a Hospital,<br />

encourage new membership.<br />

Worth repeating… Find the<br />

F-U-N in being a Shriner! I did,<br />

although it sadly seems to be missing<br />

from a few.<br />

Williamson County Shrine Club<br />

& Motor Division<br />

This summer we had a very successful<br />

Paper Sale and a fantastic<br />

Franklin Rodeo Parade. A great<br />

big thank you goes out to all the<br />

Nobles and ladies who are helping<br />

to make our club successful.<br />

Our Motor Division now has 23<br />

members now. We have been out<br />

there in the parades looking good<br />

and having fun. We are looking<br />

for new members and you may<br />

already own a vehicle that would<br />

qualify! We have Golf Carts, Dune<br />

Buggies and a third Sub-Division<br />

which consists of Antique<br />

Cars – Sports Cars – Hot Rods &<br />

Convertibles. Take a look in your<br />

garage and see if you see a vehicle<br />

there that you might use!<br />

Let’s keep on selling those<br />

Plaques for a strong finish for the<br />

year. WCSC is doing our part to<br />

support the Shrine Hospitals for<br />

Children! We are having fun at<br />

the same time. That is why we are<br />

Shriners.<br />

All Shriners and their Ladies<br />

are invited to visit WCSC on the<br />

third Thursday of each Month,<br />

6:00 pm at Logan’s Steakhouse.<br />

We think you will like it! We have<br />

great speakers at the meetings and<br />

a good time.<br />

Let’s remember to keep those<br />

who have lost loved ones, our sick<br />

list, police, firefighters and our<br />

military in your prayers. Also, to<br />

thank God, every day for this great<br />

Country of ours and the freedom<br />

we enjoy here.<br />

Announcing Birdies for Charity<br />

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

and friendly golf-themed fundraising competition.<br />

Now through November 1, <strong>2017</strong>, golf fans<br />

nationwide can guess the number of birdies that<br />

will be recorded during the <strong>2017</strong> Shriners<br />

Hospitals for Children Open while supporting<br />

life-changing care for kids.<br />

Supporters who guess the correct, or closest,<br />

number of birdies will automatically be entered<br />

to win an ultimate Las Vegas getaway, which<br />

includes: round trip airfare for two (2) to Las<br />

Vegas, Nevada for the 2018 Shriners Hospitals<br />

for Children Open, three (3) nights hotel<br />

accommodations, VIP experience at the<br />

tournament during the 3rd and 4th rounds, two<br />

(2) tickets to a Las Vegas show, and a meet-andgreet<br />

opportunity with the 2018 tournament<br />

champion.<br />

HOW IT WORKS:<br />

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

that will be made during the <strong>2017</strong> tournament and donate to their favorite hospital.<br />

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

VIP experience at the 2018 tournament in Las Vegas. Other great prizes include<br />

autographed tournament pin flags and tournament apparel packages that will be<br />

awarded to the next closest guesses.<br />

• The hospital that receives the most monetary donations via the Birdies for Charity<br />

program will be awarded the opportunity to host the 2018 Shriners Hospitals for<br />

Children Open Media Day. The event will include an appearance from the <strong>2017</strong><br />

tournament champion, a patient visit, press conference and meet-and-greet<br />

opportunity for local hospital supporters.<br />

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

all monies collected to Shriners Hospitals for Children.<br />

HOW YOU CAN HELP:<br />

Spread the word.<br />

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

Children that Birdies for Charity is underway!<br />
