First of all, a big congrats goes out to Kenny “Sparky”

Loftis on winning the 22 rifle at the Stated Meeting, and

remember at the May Stated Meeting I will be giving

away a 20 GAUGE SINGLE SHOT SHOTGUN!

Thanks to everyone for showing up to the Stated

Meetings. We have been having great crowds.

The Potentate’s Ball was great! Tammy and myself

will always be indebted to each of you. A HUGE thanks

to Jimmy Hedgepath (Rene), Jeff Head (Kim) and Past

Potentate Dennis Belford (Paula) and the committee for

the beautiful job, and the bar was unbelievable!

fter the Ball, it only got busier… Grand Lodge

started, Maundy Thursday, and the Patient’s Easter Egg

Party. It was a great time watching our children laughing

and having fun. Thanks to the committee and clowns!

And then the Paper Sale Caravan started and it was

another busy week.

Don’t forget the Dixie Convention in Panama City,

Imperial Session in Daytona Beach and the Southeastern

Convention in Pigeon Forge. April has the information in

the office.

Don’t forget to start selling circus ads.

BE HUMBLE, BE KIND, BE NOBLE

From the desk of...

CHIEF RABBAN


I encourage everyone to visit the web site at the

end of my article for information about our

Al Menah Shrine Circus. Many of you may

not know the history of this annual event

or that it has been held at the old Sulphur

Dell Baseball Park (now rebuilt and the

new home of our Nashville Sounds!), the

Tennessee State Fairgrounds Coliseum, and

it’s present home the Nashville Municipal

Auditorium.

Some of us will never forget the 1998 circus,

which managed to continue despite the tornado that hit downtown

Nashville on the first day of the circus! This event gives everyone an

opportunity for good old fashioned and clean family entertainment

and since the closure of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and

Bailey Circus in 2017 we are literally the only show like it in town!

I hope that everyone is making plans for October 5-7 for this year’s

big show! We will need all Nobles to make this circus a success.

Be sure and join our 2018 Ringmaster Club where for $130 you

will be given 4 reserved circus tickets, a men’s soft side travel FEZ

case and a men’s travel garment bag. For only $40, the ladies can

have their own travel garment bag. We will need everyone to sell ads

for our program and purchase your Nobility tickets.

Most of all, we need all Nobles to attend with their families. Be

sure and let me know what part you would like to play in making

this major fundraiser for our Temple one of the best ever!

Our annual paper sale is underway, and I hope

everyone is having great weather. Remember...

you can raise paper sale money all year

through plaque sales, auctions, road blocks

and many other ways, just to name a few.

Al Menah has always done a great job

raising funds for our hospitals!

On Sunday, May 20, 2018, our Shriners

Hospitals for Children Medical Center in

Lexington, KY is having an annual open

house. If you have never had the opportunity

to attend, this would be a great time to do so. We

all work so hard to provide the funding for our healthcare system, so

if you have the chance, then go and see the miracles that happen every

day at our facilities.

Just a reminder... May 15th is our next stated meeting before we

go dark in June and July. Hope to see everyone at the next meeting.

Always remember as we go around visiting the Blue Lodges to

promote our philanthropy “Shriners Hospitals for Children” and our

fraternity. Our brothers can also promote our cause and refer children

to the hospitals. There will always be a child that we can help.

HIGH PRIEST PRIEST AND PROPHET AND PROPHET


Looks like I will have to admit one of my

predictions was wrong. As a Prophet,

that’s hard to do, but the truth is the

Clowns won the room contest at

the Potentate’s Ball. I should say

the “Clown ladies” won the contest

since the Clowns themselves have

a hard time finding the room, much

less decorating the thing.... Speaking

of Clowns - if you have time, ask PP

Dennis Belford about his special title,

bestowed on his person by the Nobles of the

Clarksville Shrine Club. I’ll give you a hint: small, pink, round,

slimy and it has antlers... He can tell you the whole story.

Remember fellows, the paper sale is a time when the world

sees Shriners for what we really are or not. Take some time and

collect some money for the children. It will be good for your

heart and soul to work a couple of days for the less fortunate.

Come see us in May, last meeting before we go dark for the

summer.

High Priest and Prophet

ORIENTAL GUIDE

It’s Paper Sale time in Tennessee! I trust

each of you have made plans with your

unit or club to work the upcoming Paper

Sale May 03-06.

The month of May holds many

ORIENTAL GUIDE

opportunities for you to get involved

and enjoy some fun and fellowship

with your fellow Nobles. A few of

the upcoming events are Fun Fest in

Gatlinburg, Dixie Shrine Association

Convention in Panama City, and the Al

Menah Clowns road trip to the Greenville Hospital for a tour of

this great facility.

If you haven’t yet made plans to be in Daytona for Imperial

Session you should do so soon as time is running out. This is a

great opportunity for all of Al Menah to show their support of

Imperial Sir Jim Cain.

Thank you for all that you do in support of our great fraternity

and the life changing medical care Shriners provide.

If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care

of itself. - Henry Ford

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

Clowns

It looks like spring is finally here and the

Fabulous Al Menah Clowns had a busy

April and looks like May will keep us busy

also.

We started off April with our Annual

Easter Egg hunt on the 1st. It was a great

success, open to the patients and their families.

We took pictures, made balloons and

put on several skits to entertain everyone.

On April 7th we entertained for a Downs

Syndrome event held at the Shrine Center

doing what we do best, take pictures, make

balloons and made friends with some of the

sweetest kids you’ll ever meet. It was just

an honor to be a part of this great event.

May will be busy with the Paper Sale,

the most important event that Shriners take

part in. We also look forward to our annual

Clown Hospital Trip, May 18th through the

20th, to Greenville, SC.

One of our favorite upcoming events

to look forward to is the Annual Clown

Golf tournament to be held May 21st. Put

together a team and have a good time for a

worthwhile cause.

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.

Keep on Clowning!!

Jim “Snips” Lee

Secretary

Director’s Staff

After having celebrated the resurrection

of Jesus and being full of Easter Candy

we now turn our thoughts towards May

Flowers.

Our Unit continues to bring in new

members and we are constantly

looking forward to our regular

8

members coming out to the festive board

and our meetings.

We have several new ideas being presented

and would appreciate everyone contributing

their thoughts and ideas.

One of the main concerns is with the

cancellation of the Onion Sales we need

ways to generate operating capitol. Please

put your thinking caps on, all ideas are

appreciated.

We are also starting to work towards the

fall ceremony with repairing our stunts and

adding some new ones to make the second

section as memorable as possible for not

only the new candidates but also the sponsors

of the same.

A couple events that have taken place and

were enjoyed by those that could make it

were;

1. April 7 the Mule Day Parade at Columbia

2. April 22 The Old fashion Southern

Gospel at the Temple

3. May 3-6 the Paper Sale

Several dates to keep in mind:

• May 12 there are two parades one

in Portland (Strawberry) and one in

Franklin (Rodeo)

• June 2 parade in Old Hickory (Centennial)

• June 23 The John Dudley Fishing

Tournament Old Hickory Lake

• July 4 parade in Greenbrier

• July 15-19 Imperial Session Daytona

Beach FL.

• Sept 20 the Directors Staff Golf Tournament

First weekend in Oct The Circus is

coming and the Ringmaster packages are

available.

Please note these dates, plan to attend,

and help out as needed.

Legion of Honor

While a small unit, the LOH has been very

busy with the presentation of Colors. The

Legion presented at the Potentate’s Ball,

and the Potentate’s Easter Patients’ Easter

Egg Hunt. The presentations were well

received by both groups.

Coupled with this, the Legion also

presented Colors at Columbia’s Mule Days.

The weather was cold and the wind strong,

but the Legion carried on!

Again the crowd was very receptive, and

cheered on the Legionaires.

The Legion continues to receive a large

number of presentation requests due to the

fact that it is one of the few units available

for public presentations. As all of Al Menah

is excited about the raising of Imperial

Sir Jim Cain to be Imperial Potentate, the

Legion is preparing for

a formal International Standards presentation

in Daytona. Nobles Singleton and

Steele are taking the unit through its paces.

As Memorial Day approaches, requests

are coming in, and the Legion will be very

active on that week end. Also, assignments

are being made

to sell Papers on Paper Sale week end, the

first week end in May.

Significant internal changes are occurring

within the Legion, and more information

will be available shortly. Any Honorably

Discharged Shriner can be a member

of the Legion - check into it!!!!

A Noble and Patient View

Hello Nobles

I would like to apologize for my leaving the stated

meeting on 2/20/18. I tend to get emotional when

the hospital system comes up for debate or in general

conversation within the temple.

Some of you know my history within the Shriners.

See I am a former Patient of Shriners Hospital Lexington

for 12 or 13 years. Given my history I have a unique perspective

on the Hospital system. Every Shriner knows

and understands the life changing effect of the care the

hospitals give to our kids and their families. But I want

to let you know that if it wasn’t for Lexington Shriners

hospital I would not be the man I am today. I wouldn’t

be able to Work, Drive, or even Walk.

More About the

Ladies Extravaganza

Get ready everyone! After six fantastic years, we are

anxiously planning our 7th Annual Ladies Extravaganza

to benefit our Shrine Center. It will be held at Al

Menah Shrine Center on Saturday, November 3, 2018

and doors open from 9 am to 2 pm.

Our goal is to fill the floor space with vendors offering

beautiful crafts, jewelry, handbags, lotions etc.

as well as our absolutely gorgeous tablescapes and

treescapes. This year we hope to add centerpieces and

wreaths as well. Breakfast is provided by the Legion of

Honor and lunch is provided by the Rainbow Girls.

I wouldn’t be a Freemason let alone be a Shriner.

My life and the life of my family was forever changed

due to a Nameless Noble almost 30 years ago sponsored

a toddler.

When I was 7 years old I saw a portrait of a I.P. in

the hospital. With an Apron adorning his suit. That’s

when I decided to become a Mason when I came of

age and was able.

I guess you could call this an explanation article or

a feel good article, both I believe would be correct. To

each his own.

In closing I will leave you with a phase I’m pretty

sure I heard somewhere “Every Shriner should wear

the Fez with equal pleasure to himself and Honor to

the Order”

Joe Atchley

We will also have a tasty bake sale. Parking and admission

is both free and this event is open to the public.

We will also have entertainment and lot of door

prize.

We are very excited as the committee is hard at

work to plan this year’s event. We want to get the word

out to as man people as possible in hopes of having an

“over the top” event. We need everyone to help spread

the word!!!

If you are interested in sponsoring a tablescape, Christmas

tree, donating, becoming a vendor, or volunteering

please contact Renee Bolden at (615) 713-7311 or

Beth Williams at (615) 336-2236.

SAVE the DATE : JULY 18, 2018

Patsy and I would like to personally invite each of you to attend

and participate in the pageant and installation of the

Imperial Potentate on July 18, 2018 in Daytona Beach, FL.

We are so proud to represent our Al Menah family and

would be honored by your presence.
