As always, thank you for everything you do for Al

Menah and our Shriners Hospitals and children!

A special thank you to all the Veterans for your services

to our great country. I hope everyone had a

great fall season and a Happy Thanksgiving. This

is a season to be thankful for what we have and not

what we want.

Please try to attend our Patient’s Christmas Party.

This is the one time of year we get to spend

time with the patients. I know it will be a great

time as always!

Parade season is in full swing. Make time to support

your unit as we showcase our Temple during

the holidays.

In closing, I thank everyone for giving me the

opportunity to serve on your Divan and as your Potentate

in 2018. But most of all, thank you for your

FRIENDSHIP.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Yours in faith,

Horace Perkins, III

Stay Humble and Kind


From the desk of...

CHIEF RABBAN


MERRY CHRISTMAS...

To you and your Family.

It has been a Fast 12 months for

Lady Beth and I as we get ready

for 2019.We want to think the

Nobles of Al Menah and their

Ladies for the Support, Words

of Wisdom, Stepping Up for the

Events, and MOST OF ALL...

“What can we do to HELP NEXT YEAR”.

And a special THANK YOU.....to our ladies of Al Menah

that worked putting the “LADIES EXTRAVAGANZA

EVENT” together..... right at $6,000.00 raised for the First

Lady Project in 2019. Also to Noble Maurice Smith taking

the time to put our SHRINER together. To our Office

Staff, The Divan and the 2018 Potentate Staff for keeping

Our Shrine moving forward this past year. ...AND... to

Imperial Sir.Jim Cain and Lady Patsy for taking a little of

Al Menah with them with all of their travel.

May the Love of the Season shine bright within Your

Heart Year Round.

Nobles of AlMenah...THANK YOU and MERRY

CHRISTMAS.

ASSISTANT RABBAN

ASSISTANT RABBAN

We are in the middle of Christmas

parades and it is great to see

everyone out on the parade routes

having fun and spreading holiday

cheer. Al Menah representation

at our local parades is one of

the best ways to bring awesome

attention to our fraternity and our

hospitals.

We hope everyone can attend the

Patients’ Christmas Party at Al Menah Shrine Center

on December 9th. This event is a great way to see the

miracles this awesome fraternity has the capability to

perform for our kids. Keep the good work up nobles!

Kim and I plan to attend as many of the unit and

club Christmas Parties as possible; however, there is no

way to make them all. We wish each and every one of

you a Very Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous

New Year!

HIGH PRIEST PRIEST AND PROPHET AND PROPHET


I suspect this will be the last time you

will be dazzled with the wisdom

and charm emanating from the

office of High Priest & No Profit,

especially since a Clown will be

taking over next year! Looking

back at the perilous trail of debris

and garbage I have spread this

year, I find a few pearls of wisdom

have managed to survive and I now

leave you to ponder: I heard it said to never trust a

fart, if you do be sure to bring a change of clothes;

dealing with drama queens is like wrestling with a

pig—you get crap all over you and the pig likes it;

how many women does it take to change a throwback

Shriner from Dickson? just one—his sister, mother-inlaw

and ex-wife; clowns are more annoying than dune

buggies; whipped cream tastes better than shaving

cream, according to Jingles.

These, along with other fond memories of this

year, will soon be circling the drain moving into the

history of our proud fraternity. Remember during the

holidays to say kind things about your family and

friends whether you believe it or not, since it makes

them feel good inside. Be kind to animals and Clowns

since ORIENTAL at least GUIDE the animals

have feelings and love you

unconditionally.

Have a beautiful Christmas and Happy New Year.

High Priest and Prophet

Donnie Drayton

ORIENTAL GUIDE

It’s hard to believe it’s already

December. This is always a busy

month full of Christmas parades,

and traveling to visit family for

the holidays. So please be safe

in your travels and enjoy time

spent with your families.

As always, thank you for what you

do each day for Al Menah and

Shriners Hospitals.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Dear Fellow Nobles,

Over the last few months, your incredible outpouring of support and prayers for your brothers

and their families impacted by the series of hurricanes has been nothing short of inspiring. I am

extremely proud to represent this great brotherhood. Through your generous support of the

ongoing relief efforts of the Masonic Service Association of North America (MSA), each of you

has exemplified the Masonic tenet of brotherly love. Your gifts, compassion and concern for

your brothers is the epitome of our theme, “Together We Can.”

Our call to service must continue.

Although hurricane season is ending, our work is not done. We must now focus our attention

on the West Coast, where wildfires are currently ravaging and destroying communities in both

Northern and Southern California. The Grand Master of California, M. W. Stuart Wright, has

filed a disaster appeal with the MSA in hopes of obtaining help for his Masons who are valiantly

coping with this disastrous situation. We have learned that members of both Al Malaikah

Shriners (Los Angeles) and Ben Ali Shriners (Sacramento) have also been affected. Additionally,

we know that several nobles live in Paradise, a particularly hard hit area, and, so far, all of them

have not been accounted for. At this point, we do not know the full extent of the situation

throughout the area, as the fires continue to burn.

I have spoken to M. W. Wright and offered the full support of Shriners International during

this time of crisis. I also let him know I would bring attention to this appeal. I am once again

asking you to assist our brothers. Your support and assistance is critically important.

The MSA continues to be our best way to provide assistance; the organization implements

separate disaster relief appeals for each geographic area and Masonic Grand Lodge making such

requests, so that the ongoing assistance efforts may continue. All donations received through

these appeals will be transferred directly to the respective Grand Lodge for distribution to those

in need.

How to help masons and nobles affected by the fires:

Make a check payable to “MSA Disaster Relief Fund” and send them to:

Masonic Service Association

3905 National Drive, Suite 280

Burtonsville, MD 20866

Please write on the memo portion of the check, “California Disaster Appeal”

Click here to donate via PayPal or credit card.

Contributions to Masonic Service Association of North America are tax-deductible to the extent

allowed by law.

The leadership of Shriners International remains in contact with the affected Grand Lodges

and the Potentates of the temples impacted by the fires, and asks that you continue to keep your

fellow brothers and nobles in your thoughts and prayers.

I thank and commend everyone who has already contributed to these efforts. The number of

our worthy brothers and their families who are in distress has again increased, and we must

continue to share our concern and compassion and offer every assistance possible to our

brethren.

Please donate today.

Yours in the faith,

Clowns

2018 is drawing to a close and it was a

fantastic, busy year for clowning! The

Fabulous Al Menah Clowns showed

the world how “fabulous” we are with

hundreds of dress outs. We put smiles

on thousands of faces with numerous

parades, hospital trip, State Fair appearances,

paper sale and the Circus.

Veterans Day and Christmas parades

were plentiful in November and December,

and we’re looking forward to a small

break at the beginning of the New Year.

The Al Menah Clowns would like

to give a big “Thank you!” to Frank

“Froggy” Wilson and Lady Valerie for a

wonderful year as Captain and First Lady.

Their leadership, guidance and caring

ensured us a fun, successful year and that

is what continues to keep us focused on

working for our Shrine children and our

hospitals.

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

What an exciting month. Turkeys have

been gobbled up, money donated at the

auction, and the Lady’s extravaganza has

had another great fundraising event.

The Director’s Staff are very proud of

all the hard work our Directorette’s do

in supporting us and cannot

thank them enough.

We are also very proud of

10

Eddie Hill who did a fantastic job of

organizing all the golf hackers for the

Directors Golf Tournament again this

year and was very pleased to present a

check to Potentate Horace Perkins for

$10,406.00

As we move forward, at the October

meeting Brent Stadterman was elected

Secretary again, we really appreciate it

Brent.

We had two nominations for Lieutenant,

Joe Anderson and Mike Villines

Jr. Be sure to attend the November meeting

and vote.

Our last stated meeting for the year will

be in November as the meeting in December

will be our Christmas Dinner.

The Christmas Dinner will commence

with cocktails at 6:00pm and dinner at

7:00pm at the Al Menah Temple.

Please note these dates, plan to attend,

and help out as needed.

Fred Lysak

Legion of Honor

The Legion of Honor had another great

month in November. The LOH participated

in the Hendersonville and

Murfreesboro parades. The Legion was

met with enthusiastic crowds and warm

greetings for being Armed Forces veterans.

The Unit will support Al Menah’s

participation in the remaining Christmas

Parades.

The LOH continues to grow, as we

added two new members, one of whom

was the second Reserve member. Noble

Long is a trumpet player, and he adds a

sense of flair to the LOH presentation of

colors.

The LOH updated our Constitution

and Bylaws for the first time in 46 years.

The current Commander and Past Commander

will present the updated documents

to the Divan in Jan., 2019 for their

final approval.

The perfunctory aspects of approving

a new Budget was done. and the following

officers for 2019 were elected:

Commander - Wayne Steele

Vice Commander - Steve Singleton

Lieutenant Commander - Jason Robinson

Adjutant - Art De Vooght

Finance Officer - Gene Ornes

Acting Past Commander - Roy Lindsey

The Unit will have its XMAS Party

on December 15th at Al Menah, with the

installation of the elected Officers.

Respectfully Submitted

Motor Corps

The Circus has come and gone for another

year. I think everything went well

and Thanksgiving with all the turkey and

trimmings has come and gone and Christmas

Holidays are just around the corner!

With that, we find ourselves once again at

the end of another year ~ a time to reflect

on the good, the bad and the ugly. To

ponder the positives as well as the negatives

and learn from those. I ask myself,

“as a Mason and a Shriner, what can I do

to be a better Noble and what can I help

you do”. I challenge each of you to ask

yourselves the same question.

We look forward to a new year at Al

Menah in 2019, as well as in the Motor

Corps.

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
