I would like to take a minute to thank the Nobility

for what you do for Al Menah and our Hospitals.

Please make plans to attend the September Stated

Meeting. We will be taking in William Lee Golden of

the Oak Ridge Boys, and Imperial Sir Jim Cain will

have the honor of doing it. The attire for the meeting

will be dress casual. Please dress appropriately

because we will take a picture that will go in a

newsletter that goes out all over the country. We

need over 200 Nobles that night, so please make

plans to attend. I will be giving away a gift certificate

to Goodlettsville Gun Shop for $200! We will be

planning a bus ride downtown on the Honky Tonk

Bus. More info to follow.

In closing, make plans to be at the Circus October

5th-7th.

BE HUMBLE, BE KIND, BE NOBLE

HONORS and AWARDS in their Areas.

MOVE… Taking the SESA to Pigeon

Forge Tennessee, and for the next 3 years

also. The SESA was hopping for 300 this

year BUT, had little over 600 to come in

for the event.

What’s next for the Nobles of Al Menah…THE

2018 AL MENAN SHRINE CIRCUS. Are YOU ready – The Lights...

Sounds… Popcorn… Cotton Candy… Animals… 3-Rings… IT’S

SHOW TIME. Remember this is OUR TEMPLE FUNDRAISER

for 2019 Year. Here are 3 way that YOU as a Noble can HELP -

1)Send your money back in on YOUR Tickets 2)Let others about the

GREAT SHOWS that we have 3)Come down and help out in some way

New email: almenahshrine2019@gmail.com If you have an IDEA or

LIKE TO HELP in some way for next year let me know.

Chief Rabban

Randy Williams

ASSISTANT RABBAN

If you didn’t get to attend SESA this year, then

you missed ONE great time! Our attendance

doubled to over 600 nobles… Awesome!

Congratulations to the LOH, Provost

Guard and Clowns for representing Al

Menah with all their wins!!! It looks like

SESA is back on track with growth for

many, many years. We look forward to

ASSISTANT RABBAN

everyone attending next year!

As the outgoing President of SESCA,

I want to give a BIG ThAnKs to all of

the clown ladies, Al Menah Clowns and

Alhambra Clowns for all their hard work and

dedication! We would not have been able to do it without all of

you! Thanks to the fabulous clowns that attended… we had clowns

that traveled from as far away as Mobile, AL and Albany, GA to

compete at SESCA! Congratulations to our new President, Perry

“Doc Rock” Perkins. He will do a great job with the continued

growth of SESCA. We look forward to supporting him!

Lots of fun and important events are coming soon… Fall

Ceremonial, Car Show, Circus and many more events! Kim and

I hope to see everyone at these upcoming events and many more.

Assistant Rabban

Scott Jones

HIGH PRIEST AND PROPHET

I got some really good news this week—I don’t

have to go to membership school in Tampa

this year!! That’s important because the

dates for the school overlap the Circus.

If you haven’t heard, Illustrious Sir

Dennis (the Slug) Belford has been

made the Imperial Chaplain and

that’s important as well, since now

the Clowns have a direct connection to

the Lord Almighty! It’s been reported that

HIGH PRIEST AND PROPHET

the “The Slug” stands in good with the Lord and with His divine

guidance maybe, just maybe, with lots of practice the Clowns might

be able to hit the Oriental Guide with a pie this year. Jingles said he

didn’t have any worries since the Clowns couldn’t hit the broad side

of a barn with a cream pie, and besides he’s a Clown, they wouldn’t

dare. Now me, I wouldn’t be quite that cocky, but he’s got a point. It

comes down to this, the Circus is the first weekend in October and if

you want to see how this turns out, buy your Circus tickets-and come

down to watch the fight.

High Priest and Prophet

Donnie Drayton

ORIENTAL GUIDE

Time moves slowly, but passes quickly.

I’m certain I’m not the only one that

occasionally hears something on the

news, or radio that makes you stop

for a second and realize how fast

time truly passes. Al Menah has had

a very memorable year, and I expect

the last few months of 2018 to be just

as exciting.

You do not want to miss the September

Stated Meeting as Imperial Sir Jim Cain

will be here to install our newest Al Menah Shriner, Mr.

William Lee Golden. This will be yet another memorable

event for Al Menah.

Remind all your Show Car enthusiast friends about the annual

Al Menah Shrine Car Show scheduled for September 29 here

at Al Menah. Come and see all the great cars and show your

ORIENTAL GUIDE

support for Al Menah and the car show community. You never

know where you’ll meet our next Shriner.

The most exciting time of year is upon us. That’s right….

IT’S CIRCUS TIME!!!! The Clowns will be in full force as

always and with that comes thousands of little smiling faces

and uncontrollable laughter filling Municipal Auditorium.

Unfortunately, by mandate of Ill. Sir Horace Perkins III, there

is to be no water or silly clown antics this year. HP&P Don

Drayton was so excited when he heard of this mandate he

giggled like a little schoolgirl. All the comments he’d made

since circus last year about the clowns needing to practice their

aim, all the hype. He knew now would have to go unanswered.

The clowns were ready to unleash all the greatest tricks and

treats they had learned in years past, all in Donnie’s honor.

Surely, the Ill. Sir would have to reconsider his decision. But

then, all of a sudden the mandate was discovered to be null

and void. You see, the Ill. Sir Horace Perkins III did issue

a mandate, but upon further review, it was directed to the L

Menh Clowns not the Al Menah Clowns.

Ill. Sir Horace Perkins III had left out the A.

It’s Circus time Donnie.

News from Cincinnati

Shriners Patient to College Football Player!

Justin was just 11 months old when he

sustained a serious burn on his hand from a

humidifier in the winter of 1998. “I remember

that scream to this day,” his father Ed recalled

emotionally. He and wife Cheryl took Justin to

an Akron, Ohio pediatric hospital, where an

out-of-network specialist was brought in to

treat the boy’s injury. The family had just purchased

a new home, and the $32,000 medical

bill was challenging.

The next summer, the family visited a local fair, where they visited an exhibit

by local Shriners. As they browsed, one of the Shriners said, “Do you

know any children with burns?” Though stunned by the coincidence, they

learned about the Cincinnati hospital specializing in pediatric burn treatment.

Later, Ed said to Cheryl, “I think it’s for people who have no money,”

but decided to visit. Once there, they were convinced that Shriners Hospitals

for Children ® — Cincinnati was exactly where Justin belonged.

Ed and Cheryl were amazed by the superior skill and expertise in pediatric

skin grafting in contrast to their first experience. Justin’s surgery not only

advanced his progress, it vastly improved the results of his initial treatment.

Today, Justin is a student

and football player

at Youngstown State University,

and recently had

his last of five surgeries.

Both he and his family

have become cheerleaders

for Cincinnati Shriners

Hospital, recommending

it to anyone in need of its

superior skill and care. Justin shared a recent

conversation with one of his coaches. “He asked

me why I didn’t have the surgery somewhere

local,” Justin recalled. ”I said, ‘You don’t understand.

Cincinnati Shriners Hospital is the best

burn hospital in the world - period. I’ve been going there since I was one,

and I wouldn’t go anywhere else.’”

Shriners Play a Big Role

in Referrals

When it comes to finding medical

help for children, Shriners are now

more important than ever. Members

of the fraternity have always played

a critical role in helping families in

their communities get connected

with Shriners Hospitals for Children –

Cincinnati, and now it has become even

easier with a website and referral cards.

Website

Shriners Hospitals for Children

– Cincinnati continues to make

referring a patient and obtaining

an appointment for care easier

than ever through the www.

Secretary

Director’s Staff

It is hard to believe that summer is over.

The children are back in school and the

roads are very busy again. We the Director

Staff are very much like the children in that

we have commitments that we must fulfill

like attending our meetings as well as the

Shrine Stated Meetings.

As we look forward to the fall there are

several activities that we need to keep our

agenda’s open for:

The Ceremonial is scheduled for Sept

15th and we do have some new ideas that

we will require help doing.

The Directors Staff Golf Tournament at

Nashboro Golf club on Sept 20.

Al Menah car Show Sept 29

Oct 5 The Shrine Circus

Oct 11 The Scottish Rite Golf Tournament

at the Nashboro Golf Club

The Ray Stevens Charity Golf Classic

Oct 21& 22

Please note these dates, plan to attend, and

help out as needed.

Motor Corps

Wow! Lots was said and lots was shared

in the August Shriner…but here is a little

bit of the r est of the story, as Paul Harvey

would say….What a great time we had at

the Imperial Session in Daytona Beach,

Florida as the Motor Corps welcomed

the Imperial Potentate Jim Cain and First

Lady Patsy! Al Menah Motor Corps was

well represented on stage, including 3 Past

Potentates, Past Captains, members and

their Ladies, as they presented the Imperial

Sir with his very own chrome motorcycle

helmet donned with his Imperial Logo. It

was a good fit! We presented Lady Patsy

with her own bedazzled goggles and bright

red “doo-rag” so she may ride in style along

with him. I, along with my Lady Debbie,

personally had the honor of bringing Imperial

Sir Jim and First Lady Patsy in to the

Imperial Pageant and what a glorious honor

it was to be asked to present them as they

continued down the “country road” in his

custom-made Golf Cart Pickup painted in

shiny red! Next year is sure to be a “Grand

Ole” time in Nashville!

Also, the Ladies of Al Menah’s Extravaganza

Committee presented the First Lady

with a check for over $30,000.00 for her

“POPS” program. Way to go, Ladies!!

As we are winding down the last days

of summertime…and gearing up for the

busy fall and Holiday season with the

circus, toy runs, parades and more, let’s all

remember the reason we are Shriners! No

Man Stands So Tall As When He Stoops To

Help A Child!

Legion of Honor

We had a successful Paper Sale, and we

had our largest turnout of Nobles in recent

times. Noble Rodriguez set up the teams

and times, which all Nobles fulfilled.

The Legion is working on a complete

rewrite of our bylaws, which will be

presented to the Unit Members in August.

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


of SESA’s LOH, we are preparing for our

August meeting in Gatlinburg. It is a great

honor to have two Nobles in the lead position

of the SESA LOH.

All continues well for the LOH, and we

look forward to the fall schedule to continue

our work.!

Provost Guard

The Provost Guard has been busy the past

couple months. Last month we went to

Daytona Beach Fla. to the Shriners International

and escorted our Illustrious Imperial

Sir Mr. Jim Cain and his Lady Patsy up to

the stage.

The Provost Guard drill team won first

place at Dixie in Panama City Fla. Last

week at S.E.S.A 1st place competition drill

and second place obstacle course. 1st place

Provost Guard uniform inspection. Gordon

Macdonald won Provost Guard of the year.

We want to thank our illustrious potentate

Horace Perkins and Chris Johnson and

brother Leo for joining us at the Provost

Guard banquet.

Now the parade season is about to begin

so we be looking forward to that.

We have a little drawing at our meetings

and you do have to be present to win. If we

don’t have a winner, the pot carries over to

the next meeting. For our next meeting we

have a carry-over of $360.00. Come on out

CALENDAR OF EVENTS

AS OF THIS PUBLICATION – SUBJECT TO CHANGE

to the meeting and see if you’re a winner?

attend the WCSC Meeting! Our meetings

are normally on the third Thursday of the

Month at the Brewhouse South in Cool

Springs.

We have been getting some complaints

about the noise level at the Brewhouse. Our

President is looking at two locations where

we might move the meetings. They are The

Sportsman’s Grill and Millers Ale House

(OLD LOGAN’S LOCATION) which

opens on September third. We will be at the

Brewhouse for our September meeting and

will probably vote on a new meeting place

at that time. Watch your e-mail and the

E-Vite for updates on this!

Come on out and let’s have some fun!

Please remember to keep those who

have lost loved ones and our sick list in

your prayers. Remember to thank God

every day for this great Country of ours.

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
