As we get into the Fall Season, we should be reflecting on the good
times we have had so far this year and the opportunities we have going
forward. We are blessed to live in a country that affords us the freedom
to peruse whatever dreams we have and the opportunity to make our
dreams a reality. We as Shrine Masons, I believe, have the blessing of
brotherly love, relief and truth. For there is no greater calling than to be
of service to our fellow man and no greater philanthropy than the care of
children who cannot help themselves. We should endeavor to extend this
great calling to everyone we come in contact with and what better time
to do that than now.
We had another successful and fun filled month last month with the
Circus, Golf Tournaments, Clown Auction for our Kids and the Fall
Party. Thanks to all that made these events happen and thanks to all that
I don’t have to tell you that November and December are full of fun
and exciting events and functions. You know this is a great time of year
to be a Shriner so take the opportunity to do something different. I challenge
you to attend an event that you might not normally come to, have
a conversation with someone you might not normally speak with and
encourage someone who has not attended in some time to get out and
This month begins our Parade season and I am looking forward to
seeing all the Units and Clubs participating and having fun. So get your
parade uniforms and equipment ready and we will see you there!
Next month we not only have a busy parade season, but also have
a lot of Unit and Club Christmas Parties. But one our biggest time to
shine and spread the Christmas cheer is with our patients at our Annual
Patient’s Christmas Party on December 17 th . Be sure to mark your calendars
and come join us on this joyous occasion.
Nobles and Ladies thank you for all you do and your support of Al
Menah Shrine and the Shriner’s Hospitals for Children.
Yours in the Faith,

High Priest and Prophet
Dear Fellow Nobles,
The past couple months of this new Imperial
Year have certainly been eventful, and we
have been very busy. As I’m sure all of you
are aware, back-to-back hurricanes – Harvey,
Irma and Maria – recently caused a great deal
of destruction and devastation throughout
Texas, Florida, the Caribbean, Puerto Rico,
and beyond, as have the recent earthquakes in
Mexico City. These disasters affected many
people, and our thoughts and prayers have
been, and remain, with all those whose lives
have been impacted. Shriners International
will continue to provide support however
possible, and we thank all our generous and
compassionate nobles who have stepped up to
help their fellow brothers in the aftermath of
these tragedies. I received a sincere letter of appreciation from the MSANA,
thanking Shriners for their support. You can read the letter here.
On a positive note, our organizations have been making great progress, and our
new programs are off to a fantastic start. I am enjoying the opportunity to meet and
work with many of you, and look forward to the months ahead. I encourage each of
you to keep up the good work – continue supporting our membership efforts, and
the life-changing work of our philanthropy. It’s up to us to build our future by
building our membership. I am committed; are you?
Thank you for all you do to improve the lives of children worldwide.
With best wishes and warm regards,
Gary J. Bergenske
A Message from Your Chairman of the Board of Trustees
Dear Fellow Nobles,
The last couple of months – with their unprecedented number of violent storms and
other natural disasters – have been extremely stressful and even frightening for many
people. I want to commend everyone at headquarters, our hospitals and our temples who
was in the path of these destructive events for their calm professionalism, and for helping
one another. There are programs in place to assist fellow masons and nobles in Texas,
Florida and Puerto Rico at msana.com, and once we have adequate assessments of the
situation in Mexico, we will make a decision about formalizing donor assistance efforts
for this area. Communications with information on assisting hospitals and patients in the
affected areas have also been distributed.
Offering compassion and assistance to those in need is a hallmark trait of the nobles of
our great fraternity. It is also what truly sets Shriners Hospitals for Children® apart from
other pediatric health care systems. The acceptance, the attention, the time and the hope
that our amazing staff and volunteers give our patients are the best, most important gifts
we provide – it is at least as important as the fact that we will provide excellent care and every medical resource we have
to help a patient and family, regardless of the families’ ability to pay.
I sometimes don’t think that we all realize the difference we make in the lives of our
patients and families. A few months ago, I was visiting our Erie health care center during
their 90th anniversary celebration and had the honor of hearing a presentation by a Dr.
Martha Bruce, who was a former patient decades ago. She had polio as a child, and in 1945,
her parents couldn’t find anyone to help their 15-year-old daughter. As Dr. Bruce said, “no
one wanted to take a little black girl.” Someone in the family knew a Shriner, and
consequently our Erie hospital took her and provided care for her. Dr. Bruce grew up,
earned multiple degrees, and became a successful educator. She taught at a college in
Africa, worked for 24 years for the Youngstown City School district and spent six years
teaching inmates at a state correctional institution to read. Would she have had this success
without our help? We can’t know the answer to that for sure. What we do know is the
difference we made in Dr. Bruce’s life was so important and lasting that she wanted to
come back and thank the Erie hospital all these years later. As she spoke, she recalled every
nurse, every meal, and the children that were in the beds to her right and left.
As I said at the Lexington hospital board meeting, where I shared the story of Dr. Bruce, as an organization, and as
members of Shriners International, we, including our ladies, are similar to the power generated by Niagara Falls. That
power is an accumulation of drops of water. No one drop is more important than another. Collectively it’s a team that
creates a lot of energy. As an organization, we generate a lot of power. We use that power to change the lives of
children. While we have great staff and great leaders, the true difference in our organization is in our commitment to
changing lives, and to making those changes through the incorporation of wrap-around care, which offers medical care,
compassion and hope. These help our patients build self-esteem, and begin to believe in their futures, and their dreams.
Some have said that when you hope, you have everything. I don’t know about that, but I do know that when you change
lives, you change the world.
How many times have you heard a story about a Shriners Hospitals patient saying “Thank you. Because of you, I have
a life I didn’t believe was possible?”
Certainly, both Shriners International and Shriners Hospitals for Children face considerable challenges. But if each one
of us is truly committed to the missions of our fraternity and philanthropy, and truly wants to change lives and make the
world a better place, working together, we can overcome any difficulties, accomplish any tasks, and meet any goals.
Thank you for all you do for our patients and for our brotherhood.
Yours in the faith,
Jerry G. Gantt

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.

Championship Pro-Am against top PGA Tour
Jake will participate in a Par 3 Challenge to showcase the
magic of Shriners Hospitals
The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, an official PGA
TOUR event held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada, is not just
another golf tournament. The week highlights not only the
mission and hard work of the Shriners Hospitals health care
system, but also brings patients from throughout North
America into the forefront at various times throughout the
seven-day schedule of events.
“The main goal is to showcase the talents and abilities these patients possess, while providing
the understanding to those in attendance that none of this would have been possible without the
care provided by Shriners Hospitals for Children. Participants will leave with incredible
memories of not only the patients' abilities, but their can-do attitude, positive outlook on life and
ever present smiles throughout the day,” said Adam Sperling, executive director, Shriners
Hospitals for Children Open.
The Championship Pro-Am, which has raised close to $5 million dollars since 2008 for the
system, provides the perfect platform to put some of these amazing success stories on full
display. Throughout years past, current patients have played entire rounds of golf with PGA
TOUR professionals, participated in miniature golf putting competitions, and even closest to the
“Shriners Hospitals for Children patient integration with the Pro-Am has taken on many
forms over the years. The most recent concept of having a patient on each side (one on the front
nine, one on the back nine) continues the tradition of patient integration in the event, but is a
format that will be new to the event,” Sperling said.
This November, Jake from Shriners Hospitals for Children Medical Center — Lexington and
Maleah from Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City will each participate in a Par 3
Challenge against the top PGA TOUR professionals in the field, as well as amateurs from
throughout the country.
During the Par 3 Challenge, both Jake and Maleah will tee off on a hole throughout the day,
with an opportunity to see if
they can hit it closer than their
competitors. They will be
playing for pride, but no matter
who wins, all will walk away
with a better understanding of
the magic that takes place inside
the walls of Shriners Hospitals
for Children facilities every day.
When you support a campaign like Birdies for Charity,
you bring hope and healing to children, regardless of the
families’ ability to pay.
In addition, we have secured a multi-year agreement

TOUR FedEx Cup event in Las Vegas, Nevada and will

broadcast and on-site experience.
While we continue to grow our Standard Bearer Ambassador program which
will see each of your hospitals represented during the 3rd and final round of the
tournament, we are also creating additional programs associated with the
event. Birdies for Charity® provides an opportunity for donors and supporters of

Oh, so many thoughts! So many things
one could say about the troubling times at
hand, not only in the world we live in, but
right here inside the doors of our very own
Shrine Center. OUR Shrine Center where
the focus is supposed to be on helping
our children. It appears that the vision of
some is completely out of focus. We have
those that hate, those that love, those that
simply try to live peacefully and abide by
the vows and the oath of our Fraternity.
We have Leaders (Good leaders!), Wannabe
Leaders (those that can’t think on their
own), “God Father’s” (does that title come
with tenure?) and “Leaders” that will lead
weak people straight to the gallows of Hell.
Then come the followers and those that
hide behind the wrong doings of others.
Spiteful, spineless people!
Have you forgotten your oath and
obligation? Have you forgotten why YOU
became a Shriner? Have you forgotten the
teachings of YOUR Blue Lodge?
As we approach the Holiday season,
I offer this prayer ~ Dear God, Please
remove hate and replace it with LOVE.
Let our Faith be stronger than our Fears.
And let there be Friendship where there is
discord. So Mote It Be….
