** Deceased

As you know these articles are written a couple of weeks before you read

them, so when you are reading this we will have returned from the SESA

Convention in Warner Robbins, GA. The Clowns, Legion of Honor, Motor Corps

and Provost Guard were all there and did a great job representing Al Menah.

We have one of our biggest and most important events this month, the Fall

Ceremonial on September 23rd. Please encourage all of the newly made 2017

Nobles to attend this event. And if you know of a good Master Mason that would

like to join our Fraternity, get them a petition and have them attend this ceremonial.

We also need our Nobility to come and be a part of this day as well. Nobles we

have obligated over 50 new Nobles at Shrine Club Meetings and at the Temple and

we are expecting a big turnout and hope you will come out and support these new

Nobles. There will be a lady’s program during the morning session, they will join

the men for lunch and the Arch Presentation in the afternoon. The unit rooms will

be open, so Captains get ready to meet and greet the new Nobles and their ladies.

The schedule for the day is listed in this publication.

Another big event this month is our annual Car Show which will be on

September 30th. Our Chairman Keary Fleenor and the committee is working hard

to make this bigger and better every year. There is still time to buy and/or sell a

sponsorship $500, $350, $250 or $100. I hope to see everyone there for a fun filled

day.

Our annual Circus is next month, October 6th thru 8th. Nobles and Ladies this

is our main fund raiser for the year. Circus Ads sales are due September 1st and

Banners Sales are due by September 15th. You should have received your Nobility

tickets in the mail and if not, please call the office. Nobles it is our obligation to

support our Fraternity with our time, talent and means. Please do your part to make

this year’s Circus successful.

Membership continues to be our top priority moving forward. Our goal this

year is 100 new Nobles and 100 Restorations. As of this writing we are almost

half way there and it will take a big push to make this happen. I am very confident

that we can meet this goal and I appreciate all of you that are working diligently

towards making this a success. The initiation fee is $100.00 and all you need to do

is “Ask a Master Mason to be a Shriner”. I AM COMMITTED R U?

Nobles and Ladies thank you for your hard work and your support of Al

Menah Shrine and the Shriner’s hospitals for Children.

Yours in the Faith,

Frank Hester

Potentate

“Pride, Passion & Purpose”


From the desk of...

CHIEF RABBAN

I hope everyone had a great summer!

There was a great crowd at the

August Stated Meeting. Thank

you Nobles for supporting Al

Menah. In September, don’t

forget the Fall Ceremonial and

the Al Menah Car Show.

Sell Circus Ads!! Please turn

them in before September 1st.

The Al Menah Shrine Circus is almost

here… October 6th, 7th and 8th at the Nashville

Municipal Auditorium. Bring your children,

grandchildren and friends. This could be the last time

to see and ride the ELEPHANTS! This will be a great

show, and please Nobles…buy your Circus tickets and

join the Ringmaster Club. I look forward to seeing

each of you, and THANK YOU!

Chief Rabban

Horace Perkins, III

HIGH PRIEST AND PROPHET

Summer may be coming to a

close, but Al Menah is just really

getting started. The Car Show is

upon us, so let’s shine up your

cars and trucks and have some

fun. If you are not entering

one, just spread the word so

it can get bigger and better.

Next up is our yearly fundraiser...

the Circus. We all need to support

this great event so we can raise the funds that allow

us to do what Al Menah does best, that is provide

the world class care for our children. The Circus

allows Al Menah Shriners the best opportunity for us

to tell our story of shrinedom and provide our local

community the best affordable family fun event.

May all your days be Circus days....

Cori slows down progression of scoliosis

Cori, a 12-year-old

patient from Ashland,

Kentucky, received

exciting news on July

11, 2017, during a

routine follow-up

appointment at Shriners

Hospitals for Children

Medical Center —

Lexington.

At the age of 9, Cori

was told by her

pediatrician that her spine presented a curvature. She was referred to a specialist

for further evaluation. The specialist recommended undergoing surgery to correct

the curved spine. Cori has double-sided scoliosis, creating a s-like curve to her

spine, both curves presenting at a 45-degree angle.

Devastated by the news and wanting to be proactive, Cori and her mother,

Janelle started researching and talking with others in their community. Shortly

after finding out that Cori had scoliosis she met Charlie Adkins, Shriner and

member of the Lexington Shriners Medical Center’s Board of Governors. Charlie

lives in the Ashland area and recommended that before Cori precede with the

recommendation of surgery, that she meet with a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon at

the Lexington Shriners Medical Center.

The initial appointment at Shriners Medical Center was three years ago and an

appointment that Cori and her mom, Janelle will never forget. “We had been on

our knees praying for guidance, health and safety upon Cori being diagnosed with

scoliosis. I didn’t want my daughter to have to go through surgery if there was an

alternative,” said Janelle. “Neither of us really knew much of anything about

scoliosis and we were afraid.”

Dear Nobles,

Shriners Hospitals for Children® has

launched a new health and wellness

program to highlight the importance of

regular scoliosis screening and to

position us as a leader in scoliosis care.

The program encourages parents to

make a spine check part of their annual back to school routine and to contact

Shriners Hospitals for Children if their child needs our care.

Under the leadership of Amer Samdani, M.D., chief of surgery for Shriners

Hospitals for Children - Philadelphia, a team of doctors, developers and parents

joined forces to create a new app called SpineScreen to check for possible signs of

scoliosis. This informative and easy to use app allows parents to perform a

preliminary spine check on their child in the comfort of their own home. We

encourage you to download SpineScreen for free on the App Store or Google Play

and try it today.

Please click here for more information.

https://www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org/education/scoliosis

Please help us increase awareness about scoliosis by sharing the SpineScreen app

and encouraging family and friends to tune in tomorrow for the Facebook Live

event. For more information about this new program, please visit

shrinershospitalsforchildren.org/scoliosis.

Yours in the faith,

Gary J. Bergenske

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,

Butch Mayes, WCSC

tablescapes we’ve had in the past; can you imagine

updating your holiday season with a gorgeous new

tree? New this year, our very own Legion of Honor

will be selling some delicious breakfast fare and

coffee for the early patrons. Each year this event

gets bigger and bigger and we hope you will invite

It was good to have PC Ron

Queen, our Finance Officer, back

with us at the August meeting.

He is recovering well from his

surgery. It was good to have PC

M.O. Pilkinton back with us following

his broken hip and surgery.

He seems to be recovering well

also.

We will soon be going to

Warner Robins, GA for the South

Eastern Shrine Association. We

have several members going and

I’m sure we will have a great time

there. Maybe we can bring home a

trophy or two.

The Legion of Honor is always

looking for new members. If

you are a military veteran and a

Mason, come on in and become

a Shriner. Then apply for the

Legion of Honor. You may be accepted

as a member of this patriotic

unit. You will be proud you did.

Please continue your support

for the Shriners Hospitals for

Children. Thanks to all Legion of

Honor members for the support

you have shown so far this year

with the paper sale, onion sales,


and all other events in which you

have participated.

Let’s all keep the hospitals and

patients in our prayers. Also, I

ask for prayers for our men and

women in uniform who are still

serving. Not only the military but

police officers, firefighters and all

first responders who put their lives

on the line everyday to protect us.

Thank you and may God bless!

SHRINE

CLUB

NEWS

Hendersonville Shrine Club

This year is moving fast and we

still have a lot of work to do before

the year ends.

A BIG “THANKS” to all who

attended the Southeastern. A big

time was had by all the units that

competed in competition and participated

in the Saturday morning

parade.

Remember the Shrine Car Show

is coming up Saturday, September

30th at Al Menah Temple. If you

have a show car, or have a friend

who has a show car, tell them to

shine it up and come down and

win a trophy. Pray for a day of

good weather and NO RAIN.

There will be food vendors selling

their specialties…everything from

hamburgers to turkey legs.

Come on out for a good day of

entertainment.

We are looking at the biggest

fundraising event of the year for our

temple…our SHRINE CIRCUS.

There is something every Shriner

can do to make this year’s Circus

our very best ever. Start with

buying the Shrine Circus tickets.

If you can’t come, buy them and

give them to a friend who has kids

that want to come. Shriners are

about helping kids! Second, sell a

circus ad to a client or friend who

has a business and buys advertising.

If you will do only one of the

things suggested, our Circus will

be a success.

Our club meets on the 4th Monday

of each month. Our September

meeting will be on Monday,

September 25th at the Black-

Eyed-Pea at 164 Main Street in

Hendersonville. We will meet at

6:00pm for good food and fellowship

and our meeting will start at

7:00pm. Call a friend and bring

them to our meeting.

Remember our sick and those

suffering from cancer, our kids

in our Hospitals, those who have

lost loved ones, be with our troops

fighting for our freedom. God be

with each one is our prayer.

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.
