The Potentate’s Message<br />

Es Selamu Aleikum<br />

Nobles,<br />

Greetings<br />

Ladies<br />

Illustrious<br />

and Friends:<br />

Sirs and Nobles all,<br />

The year 2018 is here and what a great time to be a Shriner! Our philanthropy<br />

Shriners Hospitals for Children is on the forefront of an advertising campaign that is<br />

working to making Shriners a household name again, showing our families, friends,<br />

and neighbors the great work that we do and how special our organization truly is.<br />

This year my focus is on supporting our clubs and units, and in that spirit I would<br />

like to challenge each of you to truly enjoy your Shrine. My hope is that you will attend<br />

one club or Units event this year that you have ether never been to, or do not regularly<br />

attend. We have so much to offer our membership through our clubs and units, which<br />

leads to the Fraternal fun and fellowship that our organization was built on. Something that we all should remember is that Shriners<br />

were founded on fun and fellowship 52 years before our first hospital opened its doors.<br />

March 7 through March 11th will be our annual Shrine Circus at the Hamburg Field House, and if you have not been to this in<br />

a few years I encourage you to come and attend. The pride that I feel when I see the stands full of people enjoying themselves is<br />

truly priceless, and the energy in the room is contagious. As we begin the fun and productive year that 2018 is shaping up to be, we<br />

should all be proud to be a Shriner!<br />

Sincerely and Fraternally,<br />

Jared<br />

Congratulations to our outgoing Potentate, Illustrious Sir<br />

David W. Evans, for an outstanding year at the helm of <strong>Rajah</strong><br />

Shrine. Congratulations to our incoming Potentate, Illustrious Sir<br />

Jared R. Kichline. The 2018 officers were installed at the Annual<br />

Meeting on January 10, 2018. We are looking forward to a great<br />

year under the guidance of Illustrious Sir Jared and the elected<br />

and appointed Divan.<br />

The Mass Installation of the Units and Clubs officers was held<br />

on January 13, 2018 at the Leesport Market. This venue is large<br />

Joe Hagan<br />

enough to accommodate our needs for that event. They do go out<br />

of their way to make sure we have everything we need. I can’t give<br />

much of a report today since it hasn’t happened yet, but I’m pretty<br />

sure that things went well and a good time was had by all.<br />

Once again I want to welcome all the new Nobles that were created in 2017. Please get<br />

involved, it makes it so much nicer to be a member when you do. If you need information<br />

on any Club or Unit you will find the names of the officers in the directory included in this<br />

publication. Please remove it and keep it handy. You will also find the names and numbers<br />

of all the officers of <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine, don’t be afraid to contact any of these Nobles.<br />

The 2018 dues cards have been coming out on regular basis. If you sent your dues in<br />

at least a month ago and don’t have your new dues sticker please contact the office. There<br />

are 84 members who have not paid their 2017 dues and 128 that have not paid their 2018<br />

dues. If you are one these now is the time to send them in.<br />

There is a new petition for this year and there are changes. You will find a copy to print<br />

on the web page. Please throw away your old ones - they are not acceptable.<br />

Nobles, if you had an appointment under Ill. Sir Evans it ended when his term ended.<br />

You may, or may not, have been reappointed. You can check this by looking at the directory<br />

or calling me at the office 610-916-9000.<br />

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.<br />


The potentate would like a membership drive to promote <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine and encourage new<br />


candidates. The New Candidate Petitions will be voted on at the April 18, 2018 Stated Meeting<br />

along with restorations and affiliations at that meeting. A Mini Ceremonial will take place at the<br />

Mini-Ceremonials Units & Clubs shall Meeting be at on April the 25, discretion 2018.<br />

Potentate. To schedule, please contact the recorder at<br />

<strong>Rajah</strong> Temple Fraternal Endowment Fund Chairman<br />

retires after 21 years<br />

At the December 6, 2017 Stated Meeting, Noble Don Loos stepped down from the position of Trustee of the <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine<br />

Fraternal Endowment Fund. In that role, he headed a committee that managed the <strong>Rajah</strong> Temple Fraternal Endowment Fund.<br />

The fund was established in 1982 by the late Illustrious Sir Arthur L. Bustard<br />

with the goal of assisting in the preservation, improvement, operation, and<br />

maintenance of the <strong>Rajah</strong> facilities. After thirty-five years, with the help of club<br />

donations and prudent investments, the initial investment of $5,000 has grown<br />

to a value of over one million. A true success story.<br />

Don was elected by the nobility to serve as a trustee of the Fraternal<br />

Endowment Fund in 1995 and at the time said he would do it for three years. He<br />

ended up serving in the position for 21 years! Don remarked “I guess I lasted<br />

that long because nobody else wanted to do the job. I enjoyed serving <strong>Rajah</strong> in<br />

this capacity and hope that I did a good job.”<br />

Howard Haws, PP (1988), who also served as a trustee to the Fraternal<br />

Endowment Fund for nearly that many years, said one of the reasons the group<br />

was so effective is that Don is terrific at keeping records. “He was on top of it!”<br />

Bill Remo, PP (2012) who currently serves as a trustee on the fund noted that<br />

“Don kept the team focused.” And Jon Swartz, newly elected trustee to the fund,<br />

who is replacing Don on the committee said at the Stated Meeting, “Looks like I have pretty big shoes to fill.”<br />

Big shoes indeed, Don Loos is a 33 degree and has been very active in Masonry. He is a Past Commander-in-Chief of the Valley<br />

of Reading, an officer in Q-Club, and a past master of Williamson Lodge. Don earned his 50-year pin in January of 2010.<br />

On December 2, 2015 he was awarded the Grand Master’s Outstanding Service Medal. The medal is presented to honor Masons<br />

who have distinguished themselves through service to their community, Lodge, or Grand Lodge. A fitting accolade to an outstanding<br />

brother and noble. Congratulations Don Loos for your contributions to <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine and to Masonry.<br />

Meeting, Jon replaced Don<br />

Loos as Trustee of the <strong>Rajah</strong><br />

Shrine Fraternal Endowment<br />

Fund. Up until this year, Jon<br />

was the appointed Donor<br />

Relations Chairman. He served<br />

in that position under several<br />

potentates.<br />

Jon is a busy guy!<br />

John Grumbein<br />


Greetings from the Lehigh Valley and the home of the Oriental Band. I hope all had a great<br />

holiday season. The Band has not been very active these past few months. The main goal for<br />

everyone is to stay warm.<br />

The December meeting brought with it the annual election of the new officers of the band. The<br />

new slate includes Donald Heimbecker Sr. as President, Dennis Guignet as Vice President, Wayne<br />

Grumbein as Secretary, Ted Werkheiser Jr. as Treasurer, and John Grumbein as Director. All were<br />

sworn in at the Mass Installation of Officers in January.<br />

The band has been preparing for the annual “Night at the Races” along with their counterparts<br />

from the Motor Corps. Another sellout crowd is expected again this year.<br />

We are also preparing for our annual Ladies Night to be held Saturday, <strong>February</strong> 24, 2018 at<br />

the Inn at Reading. This is always a big event with the group. For information, contact John Grumbein at 610-395-6578<br />

or jkgrumbein@aol.com.<br />

This is all I have to report on at the present. I will have a full rundown in the next <strong>Rajah</strong> <strong>News</strong> of the events. Stay<br />

tuned and stay warm! Remember the kids in our hospitals. They’re number 1!<br />


Greetings from your String Band,<br />

We would like to thank Lois and Butch for hosting the great party after the Myerstown Parade,<br />

with hot soup, sandwiches and all the fixings. What a great way to end our parade season! Thanks,<br />

again, from all the guys and their ladies.<br />

The Christmas Party was another<br />

wonderful event. Thank you to<br />

Brian and Judithanne for the hors<br />

d’oeuvre table. And thanks to Hess<br />

Catering for the fine hot meal.<br />

Larry Christman<br />

Lots of fun was had by all and we<br />

enjoyed sharing stories about the<br />

parades throughout the summer and<br />

getting into the Christmas spirit.<br />

We are starting to fill our schedule and looking forward<br />

to the 2018 Parade Season. Rehearsals for the Circus<br />

performance have begun. Playing the Circus is truly a<br />

highlight for the band. We play Saturday, March 10th @<br />

1:00. Come out and support this great fundraiser.<br />

I would like to thank my Lady Jayne for being my editor<br />

and chief for these articles and for making me look good.<br />

Hope all the snowbirds are having a great winter. As<br />

we write this article, it is 4 degrees with a windchill factor<br />

-25 degrees. Brrrrrrr Remember...there is always an open<br />

invitation for musicians to play in the string band. Rehearsal<br />

is the second Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. at the<br />

Complex.<br />

With the support of our Ladies, our purpose is that we<br />

might play our instruments so that someday a physically<br />

challenged child may walk and play again.<br />

See you at the Circus.<br />

New tradition set with naming of Shriner of the Year<br />

At the December 9 Ceremonial, Illustrious Sir Dave Evans made a<br />

special presentation in naming Carl “Mic” Frey as <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine’s first<br />

Shriner of the Year. When making the presentation the potentate said,<br />

“Mic has been an integral part of the success of the 2017 Bingo. Not only<br />

did he act as Bingo Steward, but he willingly took on any job that needed<br />

doing. Anytime we had any work parties, Mic showed up to help. In fact,<br />

he often had the job done before any others arrived.<br />

He was a true pleasure to have on our team last year. He and his wife,<br />

Beth, did an amazing job heading up the Pote’s Ball committee, as they<br />

have done for many years. They, Mic and Beth, also came out to help<br />

with our Mass Installation setup. As I said, if something needed doing…<br />

Mic was usually the first one there to work on it.” Congratulations Mic<br />

and Beth.<br />

Ill. Sir Earl<br />

Join your fellow Masonic brothers. We are a fun group.<br />

Now that the weather is starting to improve we are starting to think about getting away.<br />

Our snow birds are thinking about coming back from down south. I overheard a couple of Nobles<br />

talking about renting motorhomes so they could join us at one of our campouts.<br />

The Caravaners not only camp at our own campground which we call the OASIS, located on the <strong>Rajah</strong><br />

Shrine Complex, we also travel to other campgrounds around the area, some close and others up to several<br />

hundred miles away.<br />

We try to find activities for all, sightseeing, games, meals, campfires,<br />

puzzles, happy hours, entertainment of all<br />

kinds and fun events.<br />

Our camping season will start in April with a tentative<br />

schedule of April 19 to 22 at our own <strong>Rajah</strong> Oasis; May 17 to<br />

20 at Lickdale KOA in Jonestown, PA; June 21 to 24 back at<br />

<strong>Rajah</strong> Oasis; July 26 to 29 at Mountain Springs, Shartlesville,<br />

PA; August 12 to 16 at Country Acres in Lancaster, PA; August<br />

30 to Sept. 3 at <strong>Rajah</strong> Oasis; Sept. 23 to 27 at Drummer Boy<br />

Campground in Gettysburg, PA; with an unscheduled trip to<br />

Delaware Seashore State Park Sept.8 to 16.<br />

For more information, or if you would like to join us for any<br />

or all of our campouts please contact our Wagon Master Gerald<br />

Berger at 610-395-4866 or gberger401@rocketmail.com or our<br />

President David Newhart at 610-842-3872 dnewhart44@gmail.<br />

com or Secretary Earl Binder 484-357-7294 my3bloodhounds@<br />

gmail.com, or feel free to stop and visit us!<br />

We wonder what the Shrine office would<br />

say if Mike brought his grandarents first<br />

camper to the Shrine Oasis?<br />



Can it be? Can it really be 2018? At least that is what the calendar says. So, it must be true. Besides<br />

that, the Christmas decorations are coming down, and everyone is wishing me a “Happy New Year,” so<br />

it must be true!<br />

And with that, we are off and running for another year…..and it looks like it will be another busy one<br />

with all the activities that we see on the calendar. But, before we bid adios to 2017, we first must thank<br />

our immediate Past Potentate, the Ill. Sir Dave Evans and first lady, Sarah. We owe them a boat load of<br />

Ill. Sir thanks for all they did this past year in representing <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine and the time spent traveling and visiting<br />

all of the Units and Clubs. Thank you and may you always remember the fond times as the leader of <strong>Rajah</strong><br />

Greg Lewis, PP for 2017.<br />

But, the good news is that as of January 10th, we are under new leadership as we welcome the Illustrious Sir Jared Kichline<br />

to the top spot in <strong>Rajah</strong> for 2018 to serve <strong>Rajah</strong> as Potentate. We all know that he and Lady Kim will do their best to represent<br />

us with dignity and honor.<br />

With a new year also comes a change in officers in the Provost Guard. But, not so quick. We are happy to say that Noble<br />

Dennis Loch has consented to stay on another year as our President and a familiar face will fill the First Vice-President’s seat, as<br />

we welcome a past president of Provost, Noble Bob Himes to that position. As we did not have anyone stepping forward to fill<br />

the 2nd V-P slot, that position is open, however Ill. Sir Greg Lewis, PP has agreed to stay on as Secretary and with the retirement<br />

of Terry Boyer, Noble Tarzan Hall is taking over as Treasurer. To fill the position of Unit Director, President Dennis has again<br />

appointed Noble Ryan Kehm.<br />

As in the past and continuing this year, we will still meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. in the All-Purpose<br />

Meeting Room on the <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine Campus and we invite any Shriner in good standing to join us. We are very involved with<br />

many of the activities of <strong>Rajah</strong> including; the <strong>Rajah</strong> Circus, Sportsmen’s Raffle, Pote’s Picnic, and the Pretzel Bowl just to name<br />

a few. And ,of course, there’s our own Spaghetti Feast in October.<br />

Along with these commitments, we still manage to have a lot of fun and invite the ladies to many of our events. If you’re<br />

interested in joining us, stop at the next meeting. We’ll keep a light on for you!!<br />

From the Officers, Board of Directors and Members, we wish you and your families a happy,<br />

healthy and prosperous 2018!<br />

By the time you read this article, Mass Installation will have occurred and we will have a new<br />

Potentate; Illustrious Sir Jared R. Kichline and his Lady Kim. We know our Shrine continues in<br />

good hands and that we will all work with the Pote and his Lady to move forward into the future.<br />

Thank you to Past Potentate Ill. Sir David W. Evans and his Lady Sarah for their busy year and<br />

hard work on our behalf. Both Potentates are members of the Lehigh Shrine Club (shameless<br />

plug for our Club)!<br />

We held our Annual Raffle drawing at our regular dinner meeting on Wednesday, Nov 1. The<br />

Potentate and Lady Sarah, as well as 24 Nobles and Ladies, enjoyed a great pork chop meal. We gave<br />

away $1,200 in 15 drawings. This is a fund raiser for our Club and we are grateful to<br />

everyone who purchased a ticket. Again, as unfortunately is becoming a tradition, none of my tickets were drawn.<br />

I help with the drawings so, at least, if someone thinks I am cheating, they know I am doing a lousy job.<br />

December 20 was our Christmas Party, which was well attended. Each Lady left with a poinsettia plant. A string quartet from<br />

Parkland High School entertained us with traditional Christmas songs. It is always a treat to see young men and women dressed<br />

up and playing such wonderful music. There were also a number of door prizes given out. It really was a nice event so close to<br />

Christmas.<br />

Our first meeting in 2018 was on January 3. Due to some bad weather, there were only 19 Nobles and Ladies present but they<br />

included the Potentate, Chief Rabban, and their Ladies. There was an excellent meal of pot roast and potatoes, followed<br />

by Boston cream pie. We welcomed our new President, Noble Earl Marlett, and presented him with his gavel, which the<br />

Chief Rabban immediately swiped. We also had a memorial service for our four Nobles taken by the Black Camel in 2017.<br />

Many thanks to Noble William A. Remo, Jr., P.P., for filling in as Acting President for 2017. He really stepped in when needed.<br />

Remember to attend and support your Clubs and Units. Without an active membership, we will cease to exist!<br />


The <strong>Rajah</strong> Ladies met at Chef Alan’s Restaurant the<br />

first Monday in December. For their<br />

Christmas celebration they threw<br />

themselves an apron party. Lady<br />

Barbara Maxwell led a discussion of<br />

the history and characteristics of various<br />

styles of aprons. The ladies brought<br />

and modeled examples that illustrated<br />

handwork from friends, relatives, and gifts<br />

from foreign travels. Lady Joy Taglieber<br />

modeled her dad’s painters apron complete<br />

with his tools, and Ill. Sir Larry Bortz, PP modeled the new bib<br />

apron that was the raffle prize of the day. We made merry, but also<br />

designated a gift to the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital for year end.<br />

If you are a <strong>Rajah</strong> widow and would like to join us Monday<br />

March 5, please contact treasurer Lady Judy Yorty at 717 274-2129.<br />

Last but not least we’d like to welcome our new Legion Nobles, Noble Harold “Bud” Kohl, Noble Dennis Little, Noble Dennis<br />

Shaffer and Noble Raymond Kunkel to our Unit. Welcome Nobles.<br />


The installation of the 2018 Divan took place at the January 6 Annual Meeting. Illustrious Sir Ronald Rapp, PP, administered<br />

the officers’ oaths and obligations. The honor of placing the Potentate’s Jewel and Fez on the new potentate, Illustrious Sir Jared<br />

Kichline, fell to Illustrious Sir Edward Engle, PP, because he had originally appointed Noble Jared to the progressive line of <strong>Rajah</strong><br />

Shrine back in 2013.<br />

Please be advised that a stated meeting of the Nobility of the <strong>Rajah</strong><br />

Illustrious Sir Jared R. Kichline, Potentate<br />

Attest: Joseph J. Hagan, Sr., Recorder<br />


The Hospital Service Unit had a great year. Meetings were held by Hospital Ambassador Paul Shaw and<br />

were well attended and productive.<br />

At the end of 2017, 137 hours of television programs from Shriners Hospitals and the <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine<br />

Chapter were seen over RCN Cable Networks in the greater Lehigh Valley area, Allentown (which is the<br />

third largest city in Pennsylvania), Philadelphia, Delaware Valley, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Boston<br />

and New York. Thanks to RCN management: Rick Geho, Station Manager; Dan Mowdy, host of RCN<br />

Community Spotlight; and their excellent crew.<br />

“What It Is To Be A Shriner” was seen on RCN Television for the first time. Past Potentate, David W.<br />

Evans, and Lawrence W. Bortz, 2016 Potentate, presented an overall view, of what it is like to be a Shriner.<br />

Bob Bainbridge Recorder Joseph J. Hagan, Sr., helped in the production.<br />

Congratulations to Stephanie Byrwa, Public Relations Manager; John A. Swartz, Esq., Chairman of the<br />

Board; and Terry Diamond, Product Development; for presenting an overall view of Shriners Hospitals<br />

helping children.<br />

Joy Young, P.R. Specialist from Shriners Hospitals, was invited for<br />

the second time to RCN Studio and was well received. This is the firsttime<br />

scoliosis was presented to RCN viewing audience. Joy presented<br />

the 30-minute program in three segments. Scoliosis is an abnormal<br />

curvature of the spine that can limit mobility and, some of the time,<br />

contributes to more serious health problems. It affects 6-9 million people<br />

in the U.S. and millions more worldwide. It is a progressive condition<br />

diagnosed when children are rapidly growing between the ages of 10-<br />

15 years of age. There is no known cause. It can go undetected, since<br />

not all schools check children’s’ spines. Katheryn Salinas, P.R., Social<br />

Media Specialist, was acknowledged for her detailed outline on what<br />

Shriners Hospitals are doing to help children with scoliosis.<br />

Ambassador Shaw and the Hospital Service Unit are looking forward<br />

to the leadership of incoming Potentate Jared R. Kichline and Lady Kim<br />

to take us into 2018 for another great year.<br />

Happy New Year Nobles,<br />

Congratulations to Illustrious Sir<br />

Jared Kichline, the Divan and to all<br />

appointed and elected officers for<br />

2018. Best wishes for a successful and<br />

productive year, and congratulations to<br />

our club’s new president, Noble Bruce<br />

Johnson. Bruce is a past president and<br />

will do a terrific job in 2018. Thanks<br />

also to outgoing president Henry Faust<br />

Sam Ellis<br />

who did an outstanding job leading the<br />

club in 2016 and 2017<br />

At our Christmas Dinner at the Northampton Community<br />

Center in Northampton, Sam Ellis was named Tin Lizzie of the<br />

Year, proof that you can fool some of the people some of the<br />

time. Noble Ron Barron picked up a special fun award. Ron<br />

was also chairman of this year’s event. Along with Ron and his<br />

Lady Cheryl, many nobles and ladies contributed to the success<br />

of the Christmas party. Thanks to Henry and Patricia Faust, Bruce<br />

and Sally Johnson, Garrett and Katlyn Newhartz, Lee and Joyce<br />

Marsh, and Sam and Kay Ellis. The food was great, and there were<br />

lots of gifts, and good entertainment.<br />

Another highlight of the Christmas dinner was the presentation<br />

of a commemorative slate clock to Illustrious Sir Dave Evans and a<br />

Christmas bouquet to Lady Sarah. It is our way of congratulating them<br />

for a job well done.<br />

The Officers and nobles of the Tin Lizzies are anticipating a busy<br />

year with our Shoofly Pie baking project resuming this month. We<br />

bake and sell an average of 400 to 500 pies every other week until<br />

June and beginning again in the fall. We bake at St. Johns Church in<br />

Farmersville and we’re always looking for volunteers to help. It’s a<br />

fun morning and we even serve lunch. If you’re interested in getting<br />

involved, contact Sam Ellis at 610-390-6188.<br />

On a sad note we lost two valued members in January, Nobles<br />

Myron Hahn and Leroy Kromis. They will be missed<br />

The club presented Illustrious Sir Dave<br />

Evans with a slate clock that featured an<br />

engraving of his Potentate Logo.<br />

Many thanks to Ill. Sir Dave Evans and Lady Sarah for a great year. <strong>Rajah</strong> stays strong because of the<br />

hard work of its leadership. Welcome to Ill. Sir Jared and Lady Kim. 2018 will be a year full of progress<br />

and growth for sure. There had been a rumor that the Divan had been directed to grow beards so the<br />

official family would look like ZZ Top, but the rumor proved to be false.<br />

Lebanon County Shrine Club needs member support to attend its meetings. We are in danger of not<br />

being able to hold meetings because only a handful of members are attending. Come out and support us<br />

on the fourth Monday and bring your Lady. Contact Sec. John Bainbridge Jr. at 717-272-5466 and make<br />

your reservations.<br />

Dennis Royer<br />

We are getting into Circus mode and selling ads. <strong>February</strong> will be our Circus Night meeting at Midway<br />

Diner with the Circus Chairmen from <strong>Rajah</strong> and Zembo in attendance. Maybe some clowns will do some<br />

clown stuff like wreck the place. It is always great to be a Shriner.<br />



Ill. Sir<br />

Greg Lewis, PP<br />


When we look back on 2017, the <strong>Rajah</strong> Chanters can point with pride to several of our accomplishments.<br />

We had a successful 25th Annual Afternoon of Music; we competed at the Shrine Chanters Association<br />

International at the Imperial Sessions in July, placing 2nd; we took top honors in both large group and small<br />

group at the Mid-Atlantic Shrine Association competition in Virginia Beach in Septemper; we entertained<br />

hundreds of music lovers at several performances and participated in a few parades to the delight of<br />

many people lining the streets, but, most of all, we sang for the children we support through the Shriners’<br />

Hospitals for Children.<br />

Yes, in many ways it was a most successful year! But, before we look ahead, we would like to thank our<br />

immediate Past President, Ill. Sir Ed Engle, PP and his lady Ferne for their leadership and guidance in 2017.<br />

As we go forward, we are happy to have a past president of the Chanters stepping up again to lead us<br />

in two ways. Noble Bryan Hartman, who served as President a few years to take over the helm once again.<br />

Bryan is also our lead music conductor. We know that he and Lady Melanie will once again make us proud to have them leading<br />

our group. Melanie will do double duty, too, as on occasion she is our fill-in accompanist when Bruce Rohrbach is busy with work<br />

or other duties.<br />

The First Vice-President is Dave DeTurk, Second VP is Curtis Flitchner, Treasurer is Donald (Punky) Miller and Secretary is<br />

Shel Rissinger. Also doing double duty is Dave DeTurk, serving as the Unit Director, too.<br />

We are also proud to have two of our members serving in leadership capacities outside of <strong>Rajah</strong>. Noble Dan Heffelfinger is the<br />

current President of the Mid-Atlantic Shrine Chanters Association and Ill. Sir Greg Lewis, PP is serving as Second Vice-President<br />

of the Shrine Chanters International Association.<br />

As you peruse your calendar for this year, please mark Sunday, April 15th as a very important day for again two reasons. Yes,<br />

your income tax filing is due AND it will be the <strong>Rajah</strong> Chanters 26th Annual Afternoon of Music at Kutztown H. S. Auditorium<br />

at 2 PM.<br />

Having said all of that, 2018 promises to be a busy year for us and we are seeking new members to join us. If you love music<br />

and have a desire to sing, please accept this as your invitation to join us at one of our rehearsals. We meet every Monday night at 7<br />

at the <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine Complex in the All-Purpose Room - no experience necessary.<br />

MOTOR<br />

Ill. Sir Dave<br />

Evans, PP<br />

Greetings from the<br />

Motor Corps,<br />

The <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine Motor Corps is preparing<br />

for their annual Horse Races on <strong>February</strong> 10th in<br />

combination with the <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine Oriental Band.<br />

Tickets can be procured from either John Grumbein<br />

The Anglers Club completed 2017 with our<br />

annual Christmas party that was well attended<br />

with over 80 people. The entertainment was very<br />

enjoyable. We had several awards presented.<br />

Helmut Wicker received the first Anglers<br />

100-million-dollar club award. We recognized the<br />

ten anglers that accumulated the highest points<br />

for this award. Marv Miller listed four candidates<br />

Ron Szapacs and their qualifications for the Ryan Award. The<br />

audience voted and Nick Smith was overwhelming<br />

selected to receive the prestigous Ryan Award. Ruth Wicker was recognized<br />

for her efforts over the past three years for scheduling anglers to work the<br />

weekly Shrine bingo. Our Potentate, Dave Evans and his Lady Sara were<br />

also recognized and received gifts from the Anglers.<br />

A new event for 2018 - we are planning a fishing derby to be held at a<br />

local lake. This event will be open to all Shriners. Stay tuned for details. The<br />

fish fry will be held in August this year. We need more time to catch fish as<br />

this event always has a great turn out.<br />

The Anglers Club is excited with our new activities planned for 2018. We<br />

wish the best year for our new Potentate Jared Kichline and the Divan. As<br />

always, the Anglers will be available to help with all <strong>Rajah</strong> Shrine events.<br />

We would also like to wish all the units and clubs a successful 2018.<br />

To purchase sauerkraut, contact any Angler - $4.00 for a 2 lb. bag.<br />






MARCH 7TH –11TH, 2018<br />


Nobles,<br />

Welcome to 2018. As with every new year that comes upon us, we find that we<br />

keep improving and getting better at what we do. We expect that this year will be no<br />

different and we are hard at it fine tuning our processes.<br />

Thank you to our outgoing 2017 Potentate David Evans and his wonderful Lady<br />

Sarah. You had an exciting and fast moving year and we really thank you for your<br />

leadership. We look forward to seeing both of you back at the Noble Riders meetings<br />

and our on our rides this season.<br />

We wish a warm welcome to our 2018 Potentate, Jared R. Kichline and his lovely Lady Kim. Jared, of<br />

course, is also a Noble Rider and we look forward to supporting his year. We hope the two of you can make<br />

Richard Jessop some time to attend a few of our upcoming rides this year.<br />

We are already well into our planning cycle for our 3rd Annual Poker Run on August 4, 2018. However<br />

there is still a bit of snow outside the window at the moment. In the meantime, our plans are being secured for our Units 2nd annual<br />

Cabin Fever winter covered dish social get together at our <strong>February</strong> 25 meeting.<br />

This year will be no different for us than other years. It will be a busy one as I already count 37 dates on our calendar of activities.<br />

These range from one- or two-day to weeklong events throughout the year. Whether supporting Shrine events locally or afar, we are<br />

always up to the task of promoting membership and fundraising to support the children.<br />

To all, have a fantastic 2018 and we look forward to seeing you out there.<br />

Please remember, if you know any Nobles or any Brothers who ride, let them know of us as we are always looking for new<br />

members. For any questions or membership applications, please contact Noble President, Thomas V. Conlon Sr. PP - tomtom1959@<br />

aol.com (610.780.4020) or Noble CMO, Richard W. Jessop - richardjessop@hotmail.com (347.410.0177).<br />

Rev. David<br />

Newhart<br />


So here we are in the New Year and all things are now new!<br />

Well, not exactly, but perhaps somewhat different. All things change, and we are part of a continuing<br />

creation and so all things grow. All things must become different with the change in the world today.<br />

I consider what has changed in our midst, like Good Shepherd Home in Allentown. That began as a<br />

home for crippled children and it had forty to fifty permanent residents. I can remember driving by the<br />

home in Allentown when many of those residents were set outside in their wheelchairs to watch the cars<br />

drive by and they waved at those who honked their horns.<br />

Today Good Shepherd has no permanent residents and does far more that tread crippled children. It has<br />

become one of the finest rehabilitation hospitals in Pennsylvania. Good Shepherd had to adapt to the times<br />

in which it was growing.<br />

So, we too must adapt to the times in which we grow. Yet the lesson we have learned, to live with people<br />

and to treat them with great care, is still important. Even though Good Shepherd has changed the style of its ministry, it still deals<br />

with the people who need help.<br />

We, too, are called to adapt to the world around us and still be our brother’s keeper and still help the helpless and those without<br />

the money to care for themselves. So, we as Shriners continue to serve the children who have birth defects of their bodies and need<br />

the medical treatment that we have continued to give so many children for so many years.<br />

We continue to see the need and adapt to the changes in the kinds of diseases that affect the bodies of children and find new and<br />

better ways of treating those problems.<br />

Life Changes<br />

The Shriners hospitals grow, and the number of patients<br />

grow and our ability to serve them must also grow to meet the<br />

continuing costs.<br />

We have the great responsibility to see that children are returned<br />

to a normal life and continue to function in a world always full of<br />

change and new things.<br />

May we continue to be a blessing to all through Shriner’s<br />

Children’s Hospital.<br />

26<br />

Yo<br />

our priorities change,<br />

Your needs change,<br />

Your idea of a perfect home changes.<br />

You don’t have to go it alone… I can help!<br />
