Thank you to everyone who attended the New Year’s Eve<br />

Kickoff Party. It was a great time. Close to 100 Nobles<br />

and their Ladies attended with over 50 staying till 12:01am<br />

to see the Divan and myself be installed. We had over 200<br />

people for the Public Installation. As I have said before, I<br />

am very humbled to be your Potentate.<br />

The snow caused us to cancel the Stated Meeting, but the<br />

Divan and myself did not want anybody to get hurt. We will<br />

get caught up at the February Stated Meeting. Remember<br />

the Stated Meeting schedule: Captains Meeting at 5:30,<br />

Unit Meetings at 6:00 and the Stated Meeting at 7:30pm.<br />

There will be a drawing for a .22 Marlin rifle at the next<br />

Stated Meeting at no cost… only your attendance is required<br />

to be eligible to win.<br />

We have a busy schedule ahead…. The Valentines Dinner<br />

is on Feb 10th. Gospel Singing will be at the Springhill<br />

United Methodist Church in Erin, TN on Feb 24th. Don’t<br />

forget to make reservations for my Potentate’s trip and<br />

Imperial Session. July 15th through the 19th will be a great<br />

week of fun.<br />

In closing, remember… BE HUMBLE, BE KIND and<br />

BE NOBLE!<br />

Yours in Faith,<br />

Horace Perkins, III<br />


From the desk of...<br />



We hope everyone has had fun and kept<br />

safe and warm from our recent bout of<br />

cold, ice and snow. I don’t know about<br />

all of you, but I am ready for spring!<br />

We have several events coming up this<br />

month and I hope to see many of you.<br />

Please let us know if you have<br />

any ideas, concerns, or suggestions<br />

to improve our Shrine Center. There is<br />

always room for improvement.<br />

February is noted as being a month of love.<br />

Please take a moment and reflect on the many blessings that we<br />

enjoy and remember those that are in need.<br />

Chief Rabban<br />

Randy Williams<br />


We hope everyone has had a warm and<br />

safe winter so far. The weather so far has<br />

not cooperated, but warmer weather is<br />

hopefully in our future.<br />

We hope everyone can come out<br />


to the Valentine’s Party on the 10th as<br />

the committee has worked very hard<br />

to make sure everyone has a great<br />

time. For tickets, just call the office or<br />

see a Divan member.<br />

We had a great turn out for the Ambassadors<br />

and Drivers Meeting. A big thank you to<br />

everyone for all that you do for our children, hospitals and<br />

fraternity.<br />

We will be traveling to Shrine Clubs, weather permitting, so<br />

I hope to see everyone soon.<br />

Until next time, stay warm.<br />

<br />

This new job is pretty cool. As High Priest,<br />

I’ve had the chance to marry several<br />

couples even though I don’t know<br />

if the guy with the farm animals<br />

is gonna count? Also, you just<br />

wouldn’t believe the things people<br />

will admit to in the presence of a<br />

man of the cloth. I wonder why they<br />

think I care who they’re sleeping with<br />

and why do they get so offended when<br />

you ask for their phone number? You<br />

can see I have lots to learn.... My kids hate<br />

this prophet thing to the bone - I mean how hard is it to predict<br />

your teenager is gonna do something stupid?<br />

Speaking of predictions, I have had a few visions: the<br />

Potentate, BBQ, and Beech - don’t know what that means?<br />

Jingle bells and cool whip - maybe a clown thing? Green<br />

streets and no spandex - No idea! Anyway, we will see what<br />

the future holds.<br />

If you need me, call me.<br />

High Priest and Prophet<br />

Donnie Drayton<br />


Mother Nature has certainly proven<br />

to have a great sense of humor this<br />

past month. Warm enough in the<br />

morning to wear shorts and a t-shirt<br />

and before the sun has time to set<br />


we’re bundled up wondering if the<br />

feeling in our fingers and toes will<br />

ever return. I don’t like to wish<br />

time away, but I for one am ready for<br />

warmer weather.<br />

Speaking of warmer weather, make plans<br />

to be in Daytona on July 18, <strong>2018</strong> and to participate in the<br />

pageant and installation of the Imperial Potentate. This will<br />

surely be a memorable event for all of Al Menah.<br />

If you don’t already have your tickets to the Al Menah<br />

Valentine’s Party, be sure to see any Divan member and get<br />

yours soon. You won’t want to miss this great opportunity<br />

to show your Lady some appreciation, and enjoy some fun<br />

brotherly fellowship.<br />

The Divan will be visiting Shrine Clubs, so please be sure to<br />

update the Office of any changes in meeting times or location.<br />

As always, Thank you for all that you do for Al Menah and<br />

Shriners International. It is your dedication to improving the<br />

lives of children, that defines what it means to be a Shriner.<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 />

Butch Mayes, WCSC<br />


An entire family of patients finds hope and healing at Shriners<br />

Hospitals for Children<br />

Dad, daughter and two sons are all<br />

patients of Shriners Hospitals for<br />

Children<br />

6<br />

Sam was born with Marfan syndrome, a<br />

genetic disorder that affects the body’s<br />

connective tissues. Connective tissue holds all<br />

the body’s cells, organs and tissues together.<br />

It also plays an important role in helping the<br />

body grow and develop properly. Because<br />

connective tissue is found throughout the<br />

body, Marfan syndrome can affect many<br />

different parts of the body as well. Features of<br />

the disorder are most often found in the heart,<br />

blood vessels, bones, joints and eyes.<br />

According to the Marfan Foundation, about one in 5,000 people have Marfan syndrome.<br />

About three out of four people with Marfan syndrome inherit it, meaning they get the genetic<br />

mutation from a parent who has it.<br />

Scoliosis is common in individuals present with Marfan syndrome characteristics. At the age<br />

of 14, Sam had a successful spinal fusion surgery performed at Shriners Hospitals for Children<br />

— Chicago. As Sam continued to grow during his teen and adults years, he developed, remained<br />

healthy and encountered minimal additional effects from Marfan syndrome. He played every<br />

sport available at the small Christian school he attended and achieved all life’s major milestones.<br />

Sam and Carla married in 2000 and were under<br />

the impression that Marfan syndrome skipped a<br />

generation. Due to health issues also present on<br />

Carla’s side they understood that it might be<br />

difficult for them to have children. When the<br />

couple found out that they were pregnant with<br />

their first child, Jadon they were beyond elated.<br />

Shortly after birth they recognized that Jadon<br />

presented with characteristics of Marfan<br />

syndrome.<br />

By order of the Potentate and the Imperial Council A.A.O.N.M.S., the following excerpt from General Order #1 is hereby<br />

published for the information of the Nobility and the Clubs and Units of Al Menah Shrine Center.<br />


It is natural to associate the fez with Shriners Hospitals for Children. Because of this, meticulous attention must be given to all fundraising activities,<br />

including circuses, to make certain that such activities comply with the law of the land and that a contributor is not led to believe that his money wilt be<br />

used for the Hospitals when all or a portion thereof will be used otherwise. The integrity of our charity and of our fraternity must remain above reproach.<br />

Your specific attention is called to the following fraternal and charitable bylaws:<br />

§335.3 USE OF NAME “<strong>SHRINER</strong>S HOSPITALS FOR CHILDREN.” The use of the name “Shriners Hospitals for Children” or reference to the<br />

Hospitals in connection with any fund-raising activity by a temple or Noble without the written consent of the Imperial Potentate and the Chairman<br />

of the Board of Trustees of the Hospitals is prohibited.<br />

§503.10 The use of the name “Shriners Hospitals for Children” or reference to the hospitals in connection with any commercial product or<br />

business enterprise is prohibited unless the written consent of the Board of Directors and Trustees has been first obtained.<br />

Now, therefore, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:<br />

1. Fund Raising for Fraternal Purposes:<br />

(a) No Noble (in his capacity as a Shriner), club, unit, organization of Nobles or affiliated or appendant corporations, shall engage in any fundraising<br />

activity without the express written consent of the potentate of the temple having jurisdiction thereof.<br />

(b) There can be no representation, express or implied, that the proceeds will be for the benefit of Shriners Hospitals for Children. (c) The<br />

temple potentate shall carefully examine all phases of the advertising, promotion and solicitation to determine that it complies with sections<br />

335.3 and 503.10 of the fratemal and charitable bylaws.<br />

(d) The temple potentate must approve the terms and provisions of any contract for a fund-raising activity after receiving the advice of the<br />

temple attorney, and, additionally, as may be required by the temple bylaws.<br />

(e) A copy of the temple potentate’s written consent shall be mailed to the Executive Vice President - Imperial Council. Further, such written<br />

material pertaining to the fund-raising activity, as requested by the Executive Vice President - Imperial Council, shall be promptly mailed to<br />

him.<br />

2. Fund Raising for Charitable Purposes:<br />

(a) No Noble (in his capacity as a Shriner), club, unit, organization of Nobles or affiliated or appendant corporations shall engage in any<br />

charitable fund-raising activity other than for Shriners Hospitals for Children. Permission therefore must be first obtained in writing from<br />

the temple potentate. The temple potentate must then obtain written permission from the Chairman of the Boards of Directors and<br />

Trustees. This request for written permission shall be sent to the Executive Vice President, Imperial Council, P.O. Box 31356, Tampa,<br />

FL33631-3356.<br />

However, a joint charitable lundraising activity with another Section 501 (c)(3) charity may be authorized provided that a minimum of<br />

50% of the net proceeds are for the benefit of Shriners Hospitals for Children, and the chairman of the beards of directors and trustees<br />

determine, on a case by case basis, that it is in the best interest of Shriners Hospitals for Children and they grant their written permission<br />

for the activity.<br />

(b) 100% of net proceeds (as defined in the Charitable Fund Raising - Approval And Reporting provisions of this General Order) from<br />

charitable fund raising must be given to Shriners Hospitals for Children except for such portion thereof as may be retained for the temple<br />

Shrine Hospital Transportation Fund, pursuant to the Special Purpose Funds provisions of this General Order. Provided, however, if the<br />

Chairmen of the Boards of Directors and Trustees determine for good cause shown, that the law of the land requires that a portion of the<br />

net proceeds must be distributed locally, then they may, if they determine it to be in the best interest of Shriners Hospitals for Children,<br />

grant their written permission for such distribution.<br />

(c) The temple shall report the result of each charitable fund raising activity within sixty days of the activity, pursuant to the Charitable<br />

Fund Raising - Approval And Reporting provisions of this General Order<br />

(d) This section shall not apply to activities exempt under section 335.4(b) of the bylaws of The Imperial Council.<br />

(e) Each independent corporation or entity that receives the permission of the Chairmen of the Broads of Directors and Trustees to<br />

raise money for Shriners Hospitals for Children, and which does not have its financial accounts audited pursuant to sections 334.5 & 337.8 of<br />

the bylaws of The Imperial Council, shall have its financial accounts audited by a certified, chartered or licensed public accountant and shall<br />

submit such audit report to The Imperial Council within 120 days of the activity.<br />

3. Statement of Purpose and Disclosure:<br />

(a) Every fund-raising activity must contain factual information on its solicitation material, tickets, programs and documents regarding<br />

the use of the proceeds. Examples:<br />

“Proceeds are for the benefit of (_______ Shriners) (_______ Shrine Club) activities.”<br />

“Proceeds are for the benefit of Shriners Hospitals for Children.”<br />

(b) Every fund-raising activity which is not entirely for the benefit of Shriners Hospitals for Children shalt prominently state on the<br />

solicitation material, tickets and documents that “payments are not deductible as charitable contributions.”<br />

(c) There must be compliance with the Revenue Act of 1987 provision of any existing general order by U.S. Temples.<br />

4. Compliance with Applicable Laws:<br />

It is the responsibility of the temple potentate, after receiving the advice of the temple attorney, to determine that there is compliance with all applicable<br />

laws in its jurisdiction for the temple’s fund-raising activities.<br />

5. Financial Records:<br />

(a) The temple shall maintain detailed financial records pertaining to all fund-raising activities involving Nobles, clubs, units,<br />

organizations of Nobles or affiliated or appendant corporations. Details of all revenues and disbursements shall be maintained in such financial<br />

records.<br />

(b) The temple must retain such detailed financial records for a period of seven (7) years.<br />

(c) There must be compliance with Financial Reporting on Charitable Funds and Activities provision of any existing general order.<br />

6. Notification to Nobility:<br />

A copy of the Fund-Raising Activities provisions of this General Order shall be printed in the temple publication at least once every<br />

calendar year. If there is no temple publication, then a copy shall be mailed to each Noble in the temple not later than the last day in March of<br />

each calendar year.<br />

7. Discipline:<br />

Any officer, Noble or temple which violates a provision of Fund-Raising Activities is subject to discipline pursuant to the bylaws of<br />

The Imperial Council.<br />

2The great blizzards of January are<br />

over and it kept us from “clowning” a<br />

little bit, but February should keep us<br />

busy working on skits getting ready<br />

for competition.<br />

The South East Shrine Clown<br />

Association (SESCA) Mid-Winter<br />

convention and clown competition;<br />

or rather the “<strong>2018</strong> Shrine Clown<br />

Jamboree”, is coming up fast and<br />

will be held March 8th through 10th<br />

in the Great Smokey Mountains,<br />

Gatlinburg Tennessee! It will be a little<br />

different this year where all Shriner<br />

card-carrying clowns will be able to<br />

compete. We are looking forward<br />

to a very exciting competition and<br />

fellowship with brother clowns from<br />

other Shrine temples.<br />

Thank you to all of you for what<br />

you do to support our children’s<br />

hospitals. Please keep those that are<br />

sick and unable to attend our events<br />

in your prayers.<br />

Keep on Clowning!<br />

We look forward to working with<br />

the Divan and all the units during the<br />

upcoming year.<br />

Also, this Shriners Creed is a great<br />

reminder why we all became Shriners:<br />

The Shriners Creed<br />

Shriners believe in God and that He<br />

created man to serve His purposes,<br />

among which is service to others in<br />

His name.<br />

We believe that care for the less<br />

fortunate, especially children who<br />

suffer from burns and crippling<br />

diseases, is our institutional calling.<br />

We are patriots, each willing to serve<br />

his country with fidelity and courage.<br />

We cherish independence under law<br />

and freedom with responsibility.<br />

We honor family. We respect our<br />

parents, wives and children. We<br />

should instill in our children the<br />

tenets of this creed, and the heritage<br />

from which it emanates.<br />

As individuals we pledge ourselves<br />

to integrity, virtue and nobility of<br />

character. Our intentions will be<br />

honorable, our relations will be<br />

trustworthy and our spirits forgiving<br />

of each other.<br />

As brothers we offer each other<br />

fraternal affection and respect.<br />

Together we will support each other<br />

in adherence to this creed, so that<br />

we and our communities will be the<br />

better because of our fraternity and its<br />

principles.<br />

As Shriners we look beyond<br />

ourselves to serve the needs of others,<br />

especially children who cannot help<br />

themselves. We believe Shriners<br />

Hospitals to be the world’s greatest<br />

philanthropy, and we covenant with<br />

each other to support its “temples of<br />

mercy” with spirit, time, talent and<br />

means.<br />

Thank you,<br />
