Let me start by saying, thank you for the honor to serve

you as your Potentate 2018. Lady Tammy and I will do our

very best to work hard for the Nobility, and most of all the

hospitals that care for our children! I would like to thank

Illustrious Sir Frank Hester and Lady Tracy for a great year.

I would also like to thank the 2017 Divan and ladies for all

their hard work, and I look forward to working with each of

you in 2018.

There are some changes coming in 2018. First, the Stated

Meeting will be at 7:30pm, Captains Meeting at 5:30pm,

Unit Meetings to follow the Captains Meeting. NO MEAL

WILL BE SERVED ON THE FLOOR. NOBLES ONLY.

There will be a drawing at the Stated Meetings each month

(firearms, TV’s, refreshments, etc). No cost…only your

attendance to be eligible to win (great prize for January!).

Please come and support your unit and temple. Do not

forget to call the office (April) for my Potentate’s Trip in

Daytona Beach, FL to support Imperial Sir Jim Cain as he is

sworn in as Imperial Potentate.

In closing, I would like to welcome Oriental Guide

Vernon Blackburn and his Lady Trish to our Divan. Al

Menah will have a great year in 2018 with your support.

Remember… Stay Humble and Kind!!

Yours in Faith,

Horace Perkins, III

Potentate


From the desk of...

CHIEF RABBAN

CHIEF RABBAN

We had a busy and productive last month

of 2017. We cannot extend enough

thanks to the cadets of the TN Law

Enforcement Academy for their

most generous gift of toys, cash, and

their time at the Patient’s Christmas

Party. It was an honor to be at your

graduation and our prayers are with

you as you begin your careers in law

enforcement.

I wish to extend my thanks for electing me

to this office for the best Temple in all of Shrinedom. I pledge to

you all to do my best in the fulfillment of my duties. Remember,

the stronger our temple the more we can help our hospitals and

our precious patients.

I hope all of you make a part of your New Year’s Resolution to

become more active in club and/or temple activities. The Shrine

is a unique organization where we can enjoy fun and fellowship

while assisting others.

Chief Rabban

Randy Williams

ASSISTANT RABBAN

Kim and I hope everyone had a Merry

Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Where did the year go to?

ASSISTANT RABBAN

Congratulations to PP Frank Hester

for a great year in 2017 and looking

forward to our 2018 Potentate Horace

Perkins’ year.

I want to say thank you to all the

nobles for allowing myself to serve you

in this capacity... I will do my best. If

we continue to work together, then there is

nothing we cannot accomplish.

Also, I would like to welcome our new Oriental Guide

Vernon Blackburn to the Divan. He will be a great asset to the

Divan and Al Menah.

Assistant Rabban

Scott Jones

HIGH HIGH PRIEST PRIEST AND PROPHET AND PROPHET


There’s no other way to start this letter other

than to thank you all for your support in

electing me to be your High Priest and

Prophet but fellows, have you thought

this out? Even as I write this I have

been compelled to travel to the east

(Gatlinburg) by some overwhelming

force (my wife) in search of the

mystic Crystal balls so that I might

prophesy. I have found several so far,

black balls with 8’s on them, snowballs,

meatballs, but finally a genuine crystal ball!

Having secured this sacred artifact, I just couldn’t wait to see

into the future. So on a bleak and windy mountain top in the

dead of night (hotel balcony about 8:30) I asked for a sign: in

the fog and haze a giant black form with a long neck appeared,

only for a moment, and then disappeared back into the fog.

I asked the sacred ball for an answer - it came - at Dawn. I

beheld the truth - the black enigma was a giant black skillet

marked “pancakes and coffee $2.99 all you can eat” across the

street... this crystal ball thing is great - I’m gonna like this job.

ORIENTAL GUIDE

I want to start by thanking each of you

for your hard work this past year and

for making it a successful year for all

ORIENTAL GUIDE

of Al Menah. Lady Trisha and I wish

you and your families a very happy

New Year.

If you’ve ever seen the joy and

excitement that more than 700

wrapped Christmas presents bring to

a child’s face then you were most likely

at the Al Menah Shrine Patients Christmas

party held here at Al Menah in December. Thank you to the

Tennessee Law Enforcement Cadet Class for their help and

support with this very special event.

I am honored to serve as your Oriental Guide this year and

thank you for your confidence and support. I hope to see each

of you at the January Stated Meeting as we kick off a new and

exciting year for Al Menah. With your help we CAN make a

difference in the lives of children. I know you are committed to

doing so, and I thank you for all that you do to help Al Menah

continue to lead by example.

The Author Vern McLellan once wrote “What the new year

brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the

New Year.”

Dear Fellow Nobles,

We are pleased to have this opportunity to wish you

Happy Holidays, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New

Year. The holiday season is a time to celebrate and

treasure family and friends, and to look at the world with

a fresh perspective – one full of hope, wonder and joy.

We are honored and proud to count you each of you as

a member of our huge, extended global family and to

share this special time of year with you. We are also

proud to be part of organizations that, in a way, celebrate

this special season every day. We say that because every

day, our patients and families find, hope, wonder and joy.

This happens because of the ongoing efforts, dedication

and commitment of our staff, nobles and volunteers – at

every one of our locations. It is because of you that

children are able to take their first steps, learn to hold a

pencil, or speak and be understood.

Our philanthropy and fraternity have several thousand employees and volunteers, and you may think your

role isn’t noticed or particularly important. But, it is the combined individual effort and commitment of every

single one of you that has made our health care system and our fraternity respected worldwide. Together, we

truly do improve lives and make the world a better place.

During the holiday season, many of you participate in a wide variety of initiatives – from toy drives to

motorcycle runs to raffles – to ensure that children and families will have happy holidays – replete with toys,

food and all the festive trappings of the season. We thank you for those efforts, as well.

As 2017 winds down, and we look forward to the New Year, we wish you and your families a great year, full

of hope, promise, peace, prosperity and good health. We also ask that you spend some time reflecting on your

fraternity and philanthropy, and re-commit to being as involved and active as possible, and to genuinely

supporting local, national and international efforts and initiatives. It truly does take the combined effort and

energy of each of us to impact the world around us. If you’re not sure how you can take a more active role,

speak with your temple leadership. There are always ways to participate.

We look forward to continuing to work with you to strengthen both Shriners International and Shriners

Hospitals for Children® and to continuing to make a difference in the lives of children.

Finally, together with our ladies, Anne and Lisa, we thank you for all that you do and wish you holidays full

of memorable times with family and friends, and a New Year of joy, wonder, hope and peace. Enjoy every

moment and every memory the season brings.

Yours in the faith,


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

A FRATERNAL NEWSLETTER December 2017

A Message From Your Public Relations Chairman

Dear Fellow Nobles,

I’m glad to have this opportunity to wish everyone

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas, and to express my

appreciation for all your hard work, efforts and dedication

to the missions of Shriners International and Shriners

Hospitals for Children ® . During this joyous time of year,

we hope you’ll take time to enjoy the season, and to be

with family and friends, sharing special memories and

creating new ones.

Some call this the “Season of Hope.” Hope is one of

the most important gifts we can give, and is something

many of our patients and families discover while at

Shriners Hospitals. What a little hope and confidence can

accomplish can be seen in our new DRTV ad (hopefully

you will see it sometime over the holidays). In the

spot, titled “The 12 Days of Christmas,” patients with

prosthetics are performing ballet and a patient missing a

hand is playing the piano. These children are learning that

challenges can be overcome, and dreams are possible.

Every one of us should be incredibly proud of what

our health care system helps make possible. Shriners

Hospitals for Children – your philanthropy – truly does

improve lives and make the world a better place. In case

you miss it, here’s a link for a YouTube version: youtube.

com/watch?v=tbavHGnKh7w.

Just as our patients can overcome challenges and achieve

their goals, we – as Shriners – can, with significant effort,

determination and confidence, meet the challenges we

face – especially increasing our membership numbers.

If you think it can’t be done, and there is no use in

expending the energy to raise interest in the fraternity,

remember the effort of our patients and what they

accomplish in the face of far more daunting obstacles. All

each one of us needs to do is try – every day.

That would be a great New Year’s resolution for us: To

do something each day to strengthen our membership

numbers, which, in turn will strengthen our philanthropy.

6

As you prepare for the New Year, remember to watch

for our float, Caring for Kids Around the World, when

you tune in to America’s iconic Rose Parade on New

Year’s Day. Participating in this popular event provides

tremendous media exposure for us, and the opportunity

for countless people to learn more about or discover

Shriners Hospitals.

Also, remember the East-West Shrine Game on Jan.

20 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. We look

forward to seeing as many nobles and their families

at the game. It’s a great time, and an important event

for our organizations. So, please come on down and

support it. If you can’t make it in person, watch it on NFL

Network, or, better yet, get together with your fellow

nobles, host a watch party and invite the community.

The East-West Shrine Game office has materials to

help you hold a successful event. Contact the staff at

EastWestShrineGame@shrinenet.org for

more information.

Again, we wish you Happy Holidays and a Merry

Christmas, and a healthy and Happy New Year!

Thank you for your continued commitment and dedication

to your fraternity and philanthropy.

Yours in the faith,

Jim L. Cain Sr.

Imperial Chief Rabban

Public Relations Chairman


Dear Nobles,

We are very excited to announce

that Hall of Fame quarterback and

East-West Shrine Game® alumnus,

Brett Favre, will be lending his

support of the 2018 East-West

Shrine Game. We wanted you to be

the first to see a special message

from Brett and Shriners Hospitals

for Children patient Alec.

Go to https://t.e2ma.net/click/oodb7/4wyhmrb/0958kl to view video of Brett &

Alec

The 93rd East-West Shrine Game will be held January 20, 2018 in St.

Petersburg, Florida. Visit www.shrinegame.com/tickets to purchase your tickets

today. If you can’t make it to the game, you can watch it live on NFL Network at 3

p.m. EST. We hope to see you there!

Yours in faith,

Gary J. Bergenske

Clowns

2017 was a fantastic year for

clowning! The Fabulous Al Menah

Clowns definitely earned their title

with dress outs. We put smiles on

thousands of faces with parades, State

Fair skits, paper sales and the Circus.

Christmas parades were plentiful in

December, with as many as five events

in a single day! The Patient’s Party was

a great success with help from local

law enforcement.

The Clowns also had their Clown

Officer Election December 5th. The

results are as follows:

Captain: Frank “Froggy” Wilson,

Lieutenant: James “Puzzles”

Chambers, Secretary: James “Snips”

Lee, Treasurer: John “Sweet Pea”

Waynick. Our newly elected Officers

were installed at the Clown Christmas

/Awards Party held December 16th.

Congratulations goes out to Charlie

“Hot Rod” Jackson as Clown of the

Year and Clay “Flat Top” Hedgepath

as Rookie of the Year!

The Al Menah Clowns would like

to give a big “Thank you!” to Vernon

“Jingles” Blackburn and Lady Trisha

for a fantastic year as Captain and

First Lady. Their leadership, guidance

and truly caring is what continues to

keep us focused on working for our

Shrine children and our hospitals.

We would also like to congratulate

our newly elected Divan for 2018! We

are looking forward to good things

this new year!

Please keep our brothers, whose

health and circumstances keep them

from being with us, in our prayers.

Happy New Year!

Jim “Snips” Lee

Secretary

Legion of Honor

The Legion of Honor had a very active

December with numerous Christmas

parades. We enjoyed them all and

had good turn-outs. The crowds were

very supportive and welcomed us

with loud cheers and applause. The

weather was very reasonable except

for the Hartsville and Gallatin parades

which were very cold with some

snow flurries. But the hospitality in

Gallatin at KFC afterwards warmed

both our bodies and our stomachs!

Thanks to the Sumner County Shrine

Club for that.

For 2018, the LOH elected Art

DeVooght - Commander, Wayne

Steele - Vice Commander, and Steve

Singleton - Lt. Commander. These

Nobles were installed on Dec. 15th

during our LOH Christmas Party at

AL Menah along with Ron Queen as

Finance Officer and Gene Ornes as

Adjutant.

In support of our Past Potentate

Jim Cain being installed as Imperial

Potentate in Daytona Beach in July

2018, a Drill Team is being formed

under the leadership of Nobles Steele

and Singleton.

The LOH presented colors at the

Al Menah Patients Christmas Party.

Attendance was strong with many

patients and their families, as well as

the graduating class of the Tennessee

Law Enforcement Training Academy

who passed out gifts which had been

donated to them for the children.

The graduates were in uniform and

came from various towns and cities

all across Tennessee. Santa Clause

was also there and passed out gifts.

The children all left there with many

presents, treats, toys, smiles on their

faces and full tummy’s.

The LOH had a great year under

the leadership of Commander Roy

Lindsey, and the Nobles hope to

continue the momentum into 2018 in

support of our new Potentate, Horace

Perkins and expanded activities under

the leadership of our past commander

Harry Dunn as Legion of Honor

SESA Commander.

Respectfully submitted,

Art De Vooght

Commander

From the

Editor

As the new year starts, it seems that

our units communications are a

little slow to get going. As you can

see, only two units/clubs provided

submissions for the January Shriner.

With exception of the two units

you see on this page, the list below

contains all other units & clubs

that have submitted articles to the

Shriner in the past.

• Al Menah Band

• Director’s Staff

• Greeters

• Horse Patrol

• D & B Mountaineers

• Provost Guard

• Motor Corps

SHRINE CLUBS

• Hendersonville Shrine Club

• Sumner County

• Shrine Past Masters Association

• Williamson County Shrine Club

• Wilson County Shrine Club

• Hillbilly Clan #151

These units / clubs are the backbone

of the nobility and the Shriner is

a means to educate the nobility

at large of their functions and

contributions to our organization.

Captains / club Presidents, use the

Shriner as an outlet to increase

membership in your unit / club.

Please notify editor of the person,

including their email address,

who will/should provide the

communications to the Shriner by

sending an email to editor.amsc@

gmail.com. Every effort, baring

space, will be made to include your

communications in the Shriner if

submitted on time. The deadline for

submissions is printed on the back

page of the Shriner each month.

Thank you,

Editor
