Another busy month at Al Menah, visiting Shrine Clubs,

Imperial meetings and parades. It was a great Al Menah

turnout at the Erin Parade, and the crowd was great.

There were thousands of people in green. Tammy

and myself are looking forward to the Ball. We hope

everyone can attend. Thank you for all you do to make

Al Menah great.

BE HUMBLE, BE KIND, BE NOBLE

From the desk of...

CHIEF RABBAN


Welcome to Spring! One of our most

important events of the year is coming

up-our annual Shrine Paper Sale the

first weekend of May. This event is

an excellent way to not only raise

money for our hospitals but also get

the word out about our awesome

fraternity and potentially create interest

in qualified men to become Shriners.

It is not too early to be making plans

for our annual Circus October 6-8. This is THE fundraiser of

the year for our Temple so we will need everyone’s help to

make it a success. It is always a good time to see the smiles of

children and adults as they enjoy all the circus activities. Let

me know what you can do to help!

In addition, our Ringmaster Club has begun! The giftsgarment

bags, soft shell Fez case, and reserved circus tickets

are a must for every Shriner and his Lady. Contact me or Kenny

Loftis to help fund our children’s matinee for the circus.

The next few months promise to be busy ones! Help us help

others and have fun in the process!

Chief Rabban

Randy Williams

ASSISTANT RABBAN

First, I would like to thank Harry Dunn and the

LOH for a great time in Gatlinburg. Also,

ASSISTANT RABBAN

I


want to give a BIG round of applause to

the Al Menah Clowns and Clownettes

for all the hard work in producing the

Inaugural Shrine Clown Jamboree

hosted by SESCA in Gatlinburg, TN.

We had over 50 clowns in attendance

and 36 competed; the competition

and stakes were high, but the Al Menah

Clowns, led by Captain Froggy Wilson,

represented Al Menah proudly. They took home numerous

awards and First Place for their unit skit. Great job!

The star of the show was our very own James “Pokie”

Buchanan. He took home 1st place in Senior at the very young

age of 90! He is an inspiration to us all. Just a few days earlier,

he was traveling home from a clown meeting and was involved

in a automobile accident. By the grace of God, he was able

to walk away and compete just four days later. He knows the

reason why Shriners do what we do, it is for the kids and that

never gets old!

We want to say thank you to the Potentate Ball Committee

for all their hard work and planning. It was a great time by all

and the place looked fabulous as always.

Hope to see everyone soon as we travel the Middle Tennessee

area.

Assistant Rabban

Scott Jones

HIGH PRIEST PRIEST AND PROPHET AND PROPHET


From the land of High Priesting

and worthless Profiting comes the

following report: I traveled the

lonely and dangerous road past

the unit rooms and found a bunch

of nobles I haven’t seen at the

temple much over the last 2 years.

Greeters had a big crowd; Flying

Fezz had 9 pilots in the same room;

even the Director’s Staff had 10 guys

on hand and they don’t even meet that

night. Matter of fact, I got nothing but praise from those

guys for the temple going back to the current format. I

guess we have to put that decision in the win column for the

possumtate. I hate the idea of that throwback being right

about something but I guess there’s a first for everything.

Come see for yourself--it’s a miracle!! Happy tax day,

High Priest and Prophet

Donnie Drayton

ORIENTAL GUIDE

What an exciting month full of fun and

fellowship. Al Menah participated in

the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade

in Erin, TN and just when you

thought the crowds couldnt get any

larger, they managed to squeeze a

ORIENTAL GUIDE

few more in.

The Potentate’s Ball provided just

as much excitement. Shriners and

friends filled our auditorium and unit

rooms, and all in attendance had a great time. Thank

you to all those who gave of their time to ensure this

event was a success.

I trust you have made plans to work our annual Paper

Sale the first weekend of May. The great thing about the

Paper Sale being the first weekend of May every single

year is it helps us all remember to keep our schedules

clear of any distractions for this one weekend so that we

may give our all to supporting our hospitals. The Paper

Sale Caravan will be traveling soon and visiting with the

Ambassadors and Nobles as we prepare for this annual

event. Hope to see you out there fulfilling your obligation.

As always, thank you for all you do for Al Menah,

Shriners International, and Shriners Hospitals for

Children.

It’s an honor to be a Shriner, especially an Al Menah

Shriner. Let us remind ourselves daily that we are each

working towards the same goal. We may be successful

individually, but we will be Triumphant as a team!

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

fierce, Al Menah prevailed, and we got

a chance to meet quite a few new clown

brothers.

As always, thank you to all of

you for what you do to support

our children’s hospitals. Please

keep

those that are sick and unable to attend our

events in your prayers.

Jim “Snips” Lee

Secretary

Director’s Staff

The first quarter of the year has been

one filled with enthusiasm and excitement.

Our stated meeting numbers are growing

with the attendance hitting close to a 50%

increase in member turnout. Keep in mind

that our stated meetings are the 4 th Tuesday

of every month with the social hour beginning

at 5:30.

Yes there have been a few surprises with

the cancellation of the onion sales and the

opportunity to attend either the Fun Fest

or the Dixie Association Convention in

March. Those members that have worked

for the Director Staff raising funds, helping

at the circus etc. will receive their allowance

towards helping with their rooms at

one of the events.

All those that signed up for the Potentates

Ball at the end of the month, March 23 and

24 enjoyed some very exciting evenings

full of friendship, with the Hospitality

Room at the Maxwell House both days.

We were very proud of our decorated unit

room, thank you Directorettes.

There are several dates to keep in mind:

May 3-6 - paper sale

June 23 -John Dudley Fishing Tournament

on Old Hickory Lake

July 15- 19The Imperial Session in

Daytona Beach, FL.

Sept 20 -The Director’s staff Golf

Tournament, place to be determined

As you can imagine with the cancellation

of the onion sales we will need to strive to

obtain fund raising. Any new ideas would

be greatly appreciated.

Please note these dates, plan to attend,

and help out as needed.

Once a patient, now a nurse

Medical journey at Shriners Hospitals for Children shapes employees career choice

At age 11, Kandace Stratton was diagnosed by her pediatrician with

adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and referred to Shriners Hospitals for

Children Medical Center — Lexington for treatment. The pediatric

orthopaedic surgeon recommended that Kandace be fitted by the

orthotics and prosthetics department for a thoracolumbrosacral orthosis

(TLSO) brace. A TLSO is the most common type of brace worn for

scoliosis. The brace is made of plastic and is contoured to conform to the

body. This close-fitting brace is almost invisible under clothes, as it fits

under the arms and around the rib cage, lower back and hips. Kandace

wore the TLSO brace for 23 hours a day for two years. At the end of the

two years, Kandace underwent two major spinal fusion surgeries within

four months.

Kandace spent a great deal of her teenage years as a Shriners Hospitals for Children patient. At the

time, she didn’t realize how her medical journey would one day shape her career choice. Kandace and

her family were very thankful and impressed by the level of care that she received, which led to

Kandace choosing to pursue nursing school. “I have always loved children and felt as though I could

relate to patients since I was one!” said Kandace. Kandace received her nursing assistant certificate in

May 2009, and was hired at the then Lexington Shriners Hospital, working on the inpatient unit while

she continued to work on obtaining her nursing degree. For the next few years, she worked at a job

she loved preparing for the career she would love. In May 2012, Kandace graduated from nursing

school. As a registered nurse, she worked the same shift as she had for three years as an aide.

“God’s plan for my life was to be a voice to these amazing children I am privileged to care for. I

try and use my experience as a patient to help these children and teens through their recovery,” said

Kandace. “At 14, I was too young to realize it, but I now know why my medical journey led me

here. Shriners Hospital is a special place and I hold it dear. I am blessed that God brought me back

where my heart will always belong.” Lexington Shriners Hospital transitioned to a new model of care

in April 2017, and was renamed Shriners Hospitals for Children Medical Center. The facility now

operates as a 100 percent outpatient pediatric orthopaedic medical center. The move provided

Kandace with an opportunity to shift from an RN on the inpatient unit to PACU. In addition to caring

for children as an RN, she contacts all patients scheduled for surgery at the ambulatory surgery center

several days prior, to provide specific details and answer any questions. Kandace was recently filmed

by Lexington Shriners Medical Center as the host of the pre-operative surgery video that will be

made available to all patients and families preparing for surgery.

“We have such a wonderful history of countless success stories, of brave and brilliant children who

come to us with a variety of medical needs. They move on to have successful and healthy lives of

their own. Sometimes, such as with Kandace, we are lucky to have them return and give back their

professionalism and love to the very organization that cured them,” said Elizabeth Martin, RN,

manager of surgical services and infection preventionist at Lexington Shriners Medical Center. “We

are blessed to have Kandace a part of the Shriners Hospitals for Children organization.”
