When it is hot, it is hot! Summer is here in full
swing and I hope everyone is staying cool. If
you have not already heard (I don’t know
how that is possible) Al Menah’s very
own Jim Cain is our Imperial Potentate.
We had a very good showing of support
from Al Menah at the Imperial Session
in Dayton, FL. I want to say thank you
to everyone that traveled to show your
support and love to Jim and Patsy.
We are very excited to showcase Nashville in
2019 to the world of Shriners. It is time to roll up your sleeves
and get onboard with the production of this exciting event. Director
General Parker Toler will need all of us to be ready to serve in
some capacity. If you want to get involved, then contact any Divan
member or PP Parker Toler.
There will be no time to slow down as Al Menah is headed to
SESA in Pigeon Forge on August 16th-19th for fun, fellowship and
of course good ole competition. I know that the units are working
hard to represent AMSC and take home some trophies, Remember
to have some fun too!! Did I mention a parade... We get to parade
right down the middle of Pigeon Forge, and it will be nice to have a
crowd of spectators. Kim and I wish everyone safe travels and hope
to see you soon!
HIGH HIGH PRIEST PRIEST AND PROPHET AND PROPHET
Greetings and Salutations from the land
of OZ. From those of us who went to
see the Wizard in “Daytona” Florida,
we have returned more enlightened,
wise, and worn out than old tennis
shoes. Many thanks to Billy Cullen,
Everette Vanhooser, and Leo &
Claude Claytor who drove the yellow
brick road pulling floats and baggage to
the land of OZ. The tin man, lion, and
scarecrow did a good job on hospitality
and bar, and I will let them sort out which one of them is the
brainless scarecrow. Dorothy finally did get those Ruby Red
Slippers and now is off on a whirlwind tour of OZ with our
New Imperial Potentate Jim Cain. It’s a long hard road to
reach the top job, full of wicked witches and flying monkeys,
congratulations Imperial Sir.
High Priest and Prophet
A big THANK YOU to those who traveled
to Daytona to support Imperial Sir. Jim
Cain & Lady Patsy. Al Menah was
well represented and I’m certain your
efforts were very much appreciated.
I trust each of you enjoyed your
time with family and friends these
past two months. We have several
busy months ahead, and I hope you will
make plans to participate and continue
the great work Al Menah does for Shriners
Hospitals for Children.
Hope to see many of you at S.E.S.A in Pigeon Forge later
this month. Bring the family and let’s enjoy some fun and
fellowship in the Great Smokey Mountains

Dear Fellow Nobles,
The 144th Imperial Session of Shriners International and
Shriners Hospitals for Children® concluded on July 19. I want
to thank everyone who came to Daytona Beach, Florida, to
participate in this annual event, and spend time with their
extended Shriners family.
I especially want to thank the voting representatives for giving
me the opportunity to serve another term as President and
Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Shriners Hospitals for
Children. I am honored by your confidence and trust, and will
continue to work as hard as I can and do my best for our
We also appreciate the representatives’ support for the
efforts and work of the members of the Joint Boards and the
Executive Teams at both headquarters and the hospitals. We are enthused and energized by the
decision to move forward and implement the plans for realigning and restructuring the Boston,
Cincinnati, Spokane and Twin Cities hospitals that we have been discussing (and sharing with
you) over the past several months. We provided details on these initiatives to you just prior to
Imperial Session, but here is a very brief recap:
For Boston, the plan primarily involves consolidating space and sharing our location with MGH
(Massachusetts General Hospital). In Cincinnati, we will be working to determine the right
hospital to share space with – at either their location or ours. Our Spokane hospital has agreed to
significantly reduce expenses and to increase both specific outreach efforts and their sports
medicine program. The Twin Cities location will move to a partner site, where our staff will
provide both inpatient and outpatient services, and will increase outreach to specific target areas.
We plan to have the transitions of the Boston and Cincinnati locations completed by the end of
2020; the changes in Spokane finalized by the end of this year; and the work completed for Twin
Cities within the next year.
We are encouraged by the spirit of trust, cooperation and change that was clearly evident at
Imperial Session. We are very confident in the future of Shriners Hospitals for Children. We are
grateful for this new spirit of realism and responsibility; it will be a significant factor as we
continue to respond to changes in the health care industry and make necessary adaptations
throughout our health care system.
Thank you again for your confidence and trust in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Board of
Directors and Board of Trustees, along with the Home Office Executive Team, and for all you do
for our fraternity and philanthropy.
Yours in the faith,
Jerry G. Gantt
Chairman, Board of Trustees

As we come out of being dark and move
into the last half of a year we have managed
to slip by the summer with several activities
happening and as predicted by our ever so
intelligent team many hot days.
Our picnic was well attended and

during the downpour. Great thanks to Captain
Barry for getting it all organized.

having their poker night in June, Buddy
cancelled ours. Believe it will be rescheduled

The Legion is working on a complete

Based upon the Unit’s approval, we will
present to the Divan in September for their
concurrence and approval.
With Noble Dunn as the Commander
and Noble Silva as the Vice Commander

MRI in early onset scoliosis:
Is universal screening necessary?
A core aspect of Shriners Hospitals for Children’s mission is to conduct innovative
research that will improve the lives of children. Research is an important aspect of
evidenced-based care provided at all 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children locations and the
Lexington facility is no exception. Since the inception of Shriners Hospitals for Children
Medical Center — Lexington’s research program in 1995, over 150 funded research
projects have been conducted. These projects were made possible because of the support
from Shriners Hospitals for Children Research Advisory Board and Kosair Charities,
along with a few other private foundations, totaling $7.5 million. In addition, the
Lexington Shriners Medical Center’s research program has completed almost 150
unfunded research projects. All of these projects combined have resulted in 390 scientific
presentations to national and international conferences and 144 scientific publications to
A recent research project conducted by Shriners Medical Center involved children
less than 5 years of age, diagnosed with early onset scoliosis (a curvature of the spine).
For young children diagnosed with early onset scoliosis, having an MRI is recommended
in order to rule out abnormalities of the spine and central nervous system. However, an
MRI screening, like any medical procedure, has inherent costs and potential risks. The
MRI is done under anesthesia when the child is under the age of 5. Anesthesia helps the
patient to lie perfectly still with little to no movement during the procedure in order to
produce the most accurate results possible. Typically, children with progressive scoliosis
will require multiple exposures to anesthesia. Multiple exposures to anesthesia may result
in adverse effects in children. Limiting the frequency of MRI evaluations, therefore, is of
paramount interest, and is a factor that led to this study.
Our researchers evaluated 53 patients, under the age of 5, with progressive scoliosis.
All 53 patients had undergone the initial MRI screening. First, we grouped the 53 patients
into two groups based upon whether they had a normal or abnormal MRI finding. We
compared the two groups and found that patients with a curve of 30 degrees or higher
were 27 times more likely to have an abnormal MRI finding.
Clinically, what does this mean? For those patients with no unusual findings on
radiographs or physical exams, and have a curve less than 30 degrees, MRI screening
could possibly be delayed until the curve progresses above the 30 degree threshold. These
initial results potentially eliminate the need for unnecessary MRI screenings, in turn
reducing anesthesia risks for the child and financial cost to families and institutions.
Every research project conducted by our staff at Lexington Shriners Medical Center
strives to put the “patient and family first.” No matter the research question, our overall
goal is to contribute general knowledge that will continually improve the health care we
provide. At Lexington Shriners Medical Center, research matters because our patients
and families matter.

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.
