Helping Our Patients Discover Their

Potential and Believe in Their Dreams

Shriners Hospitals for Children ® is committed to

providing what we call wrap-around care. It means we

maintain a family-centered approach and are concerned

with our patients’ overall health and well-being.

This can mean different things for different patients. It

can include finding ways to help them play with their

friends, enhance their education, enjoy a hobby and

live more independently. The staff of Shriners Hospitals

for Children is known for taking the time to listen

to our patients and families, learning of both their

medical needs, as well as their hopes and dreams.

First Lady Alice Smith believes that giving our

patients every possible advantage and opportunity to

achieve helps them to become Rising Stars, and she

is dedicated to strengthening their incredible spirits

and abilities, helping them to have full, satisfying and

productive lives.

TREATING UNIQUE NEEDS

To help each child who comes to Shriners Hospitals

for Children become as independent as possible,

we often introduce and provide assistive devices,

especially through our various therapy programs. We

provide our patients with physical,

occupational, speech and

recreational therapy.

Assistive devices can range from

items to help learn or regain the

ability to walk, to computer-driven

augmentations for those with speech

difficulties, to items that help children

learn to feed or dress themselves. Assistive

devices also include mobility aids, such

as crutches, walkers and wheelchairs.

We can also customize the devices to fit

the specific needs of individual patients.

The Rising Stars fundraising program will

support these efforts.

INTEGRATING TECHNOLOGY

We also use assistive technology in our therapy

programs, through the availability of various systems

such as body weight supported gait training and

functional electrical stimulation bikes. We are also

concerned with our patients’ quality of life, and work

to provide, or make them aware of, adaptive recreation

opportunities and items to provide additional kidfriendly

mobility, such as adaptive toy cars or bikes.

“We all want our children to be happy and

successful,” said Lady Alice. “I want to help

our patients move from the Shriners Hospitals

system to successful, independent adult lives.”

Lady Alice invites you to join her in supporting Shriners

Hospitals for Children’s efforts to provide our patients

with appropriate assistive devices as well as skills

they can use for a lifetime. Donors may purchase a

unique necktie or bow tie, a beautiful bracelet bead

or an elegant necklace featuring a beautiful star,

or they may make donations online. Thank you for

your compassion, generosity and support of Shriners

Hospitals for Children.

To us, all of our patients, and their families, are

Rising Stars. We are proud to support the availability

of adaptive and assistive technology that helps them

achieve their goals and become as independent and

self-sufficient as possible.

The Potentate’s Message

Es Selamu Aleikum

Nobles, Dear Fellow Ladies and Nobles; Friends:

Who would have ever imagined that this great country of ours would ever experience

a pandemic? The COVID-19 pandemic has caused much turmoil, making the past

seven months of 2020 difficult to deal with. None of us were prepared for something

like this. Just trying to deal with the daily challenges that we face has put us all under

great stress.

Due to the pandemic here are some events Rajah was unable to have: Good Friday’s

Breakfast, Hospital Crusade, Shrine Night at the Phillies, Pote’s Picnic, Ladies Basket

Bingo, Pretzel Bowl, Sportsmen’s Raffle, Pote’s Cruise and our Weekly Bingo.

Despite these trying times we must make plans to move forward in our personal

lives and at Rajah Shrine. We can no longer look at what was done in the past and

the reasons it can’t be done now. We need to think of ways it can be done during this

pandemic while complying with the existing recommendations. Your Divan has not

been idle. You can rest assured that they have been working toward the goal of keeping

our Nobles and their familes safe. They are busy considering various options on how

to get Rajah moving forward. We are trying to get us back to the original purpose of the Shrine “having

fun while helping kids.”

I pray that this message finds you and your family well. May God bless you and keep you safe.

Yours in the Faith,

Illustrious Sir Marvin J. Miller

MASONS GIVING

BACK TO THE

COMMUNITY

DURING PANDEMIC

(Excerpts from Freemason magazine)

Lehighton Lodge No. 621 sponsored a free, to-go spaghetti dinner for the community

north of Allentown. Brother Robert Neff, D.D.G.M-45 and Rajah Shriner, said “I

thought of giving something back to the community. They have always supported us

in our fund drives, and with these difficult times, we felt like we should help out.” The

brothers at our Lehighton lodge were all for the project.

It was a total team effort, Robert said. “We placed a sandwich board advertising the

dinner at two different locations and put an ad in the local newspaper.” The brothers set up a large tent in the lodge parking lot,

where participants could drive up and pick up their meal of spaghetti with meat sauce and salad with a choice of dressing. The

event ran for three hours. “We wanted to be safe, so the meals were boxed up to go.” Robert said. “The effort was successful with

205 meals served.” Lodge members also raised $450 in donations, which they donated to the Trinity Lutheran Church Food Pantry

in Lehighton. It was a free meal, but people showed their appreciation by donating money.

More than 15 lodge members, many of them Shriners, helped prepare the food ahead of time, wearing masks and gloves. The

lodge spent about $300 in groceries for the dinner. Typically, the lodge sponsors several events a year, including two fish fries and

two sit-down spaghetti dinners, but they were all canceled due to COVID-19. They raise around $1,000 to $1,200 at each event.

Walter Lamm,

Secretary

CARAVANERS

Robert Neff, DDGM-45

Robert is thankful that the lodge was able to do something for

the community, despite the circumstances. He has been a Mason

for 44 years and is active in the Shrine. Last year he brought in 10

new members thru the Hillbillies. He is also a Tin Lizzie. He says

he appreciates the fellowship aspect of brotherhood and “doing good

things for other people.”

Camping is fun, even if you have to distance yourself from friends. That is what the Rajah Caravaners

have been up to. We have enjoyed several outings together (within proper distancing guidelines) over the

summer, with several more to go.

RVing, and camping, have become more popular of late, due to the health scare situation we are in.

This is evidenced by the uptick in RV and camper sales. It allows us to travel a little more freely than

many people are willing or able to do. As you can rest easy overnight, without concern about where you

rest your head.

Caravaners are looking into some enhancements to the Oasis Campground to make our overnight

stays more enjoyable and secure. Some supplemental area lighting is being investigated, as well as a few

grounds maintenance tools and storage space for them. We have added a permanent picnic table to the

facility.

With all this in mind, there has not been a better time to go camping. Come and join us for some fresh

air and fellowship.

John Grumbein

It is my sad duty to report that for the first time in a long time your Chanters have experienced the

loss of two Nobles recently. As reported in the last issue of Rajah News, we marked the passing of Noble

Donald G. (Punky) Miller and this issue we sorrowfully inform you of the passing of Noble Nevin C.

Miller. Although not related to each other by family, they were related by their devotion as Nobles of

Rajah Shrine and a love of music.

Both Nobles sang in the tenor section of the Chanters and each had a very distinctive voice and style

of singing. Noble Nevin joined the heavenly chorus on July 20, 2020 and was praised for his kindness to

others, his devotion to family and friends and for his love of music. The Rajah Chanters sang a farewell

tribute at his Memorial Service and although his voice was still, we are sure he could hear the harmony of our

voices in sweet accord in tribute to a true man of faith. In his over 50 years of service to his fellow Nobles,

Nevin served as President and held several other offices in the Rajah Chanters as he was always proud to uphold the dignity and

honor of singing alongside his fellow Masonic Brethren.

“WELL DONE GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT. “

Well, another couple of months have passed and we are still rehearsing and getting ready for, what we hope will be, a busy fall

and Christmas season. Our President, Dwayne Miller, is working diligently to see that, when the time is right, we will be able to go

out and participate in a few concerts and parades. Our conductor and accompanist, Bruce Rohrbach, has been leading us through

rehearsals and we have even broken out a few Christmas Songs.

Otherwise, due to the recent circumstances, President Dwayne has appointed Noble Dennis Snoke to the position of Treasurer

and long-time Secretary Shel Rissinger has stepped down from that position and Dave DeTurk has been appointed to fill that role,

in addition to his duties as our Unit Director. Additionally, as the MASA convention was cancelled in Virginia Beach, the MASA-

Chanters decided to hold over the same officers until September 2021, thus Dave will stay as First VP for another year.

And as has been reported earlier, we are slowly getting back to normal at the Rajah Complex. Some of the activities and planned

events that have been cancelled or moved may take place in the future. But, for now, please stay safe and be careful.

In the meantime, please be safe and keep a song in your heart. And if singing is in your blood, please let us know; we’ll be glad

to supply you with a folder full of fun and entertaining music to sing with us.

I stated in my last article that I would

have more to report in this article. Well,

I guess that went out the window.

We went from being able to have

50% capacity at the time of that writing

to getting the rug pulled out from in

under us and going back to 25% a few

weeks later. I’ll never begin to figure it

out.

Our August meeting was a wash or

should I say washout. September was much better with having a

good number of members at the meeting including Illustrious Sir

Marv Miller and his Lady Marie. The Illustrious Sir brought with

him members of the Divan past and present. We all had a great

time.

On a sad note, we lost another one of our long-time members,

Frank Frutchey, to the Black Camel. Frank was a good horn player

and a lot of fun. Frank is survived by his wife of 64 years Janet,

two daughters, Sue and Judy, and a son, Tom.

I hope to have more for my next article. Always remember to

keep supporting the children in our Hospitals.

ANGLERS

I guess we can read this letter with some hope of change but it remains an uphill battle of uncertainty.

Being an aide for the Potentate has given me an opportunity to visit other clubs and get a feel of what they

are trying to do in dealing with the regulations as they are at this time. As Vice President dealing with all the

issues can be quite frustrating, I'll be more than happy to turn back the reins to President Mike when things

for him settle down.

To some degree of normalcy, we’re returning to making sauerkraut next Friday. Two-hundred heads of

cabbage will be processed for our fall/winter sale. If you need some, we still have some remaining from our

last batch which quite a few though it was the best batch we ever made.

Beyond the sauerkraut there are some fishing trips remaining and we hope to hear of a few comedies of

errors to qualify for the prestigious Ryan Award given at our Christmas dinner. In addition, we are working

hard to put together a dinner meeting in October with our Ladies and we are hoping for a guest speaker who

earned his stripes fishing on the pro bass tour several years ago.

With regulations changing this month, we hope to be able to have a Ladies Night and Christmas Party at our December meeting.

Maybe some of the other clubs could join us since the percent of people participating goes to 50%. Stay tuned for further info.

No matter what we plan has no chance for success unless the members participate. I know people have concerns about being in

public, but I assure you we are doing all we can to create safe environments. Be part of the solution and not just a nay sayer. In all

the meetings I have been with the Potentate Marv, he has encouraged people not to say, “We can’t,” but encouraged them to find a

way to get the job done. The rest is up to us!!!

One last item that I would like to share is that the Pote is one of our own and a great turnout for the testimonial {roast} would

be great. It’s been a tough year so let’s have some FUN!!!

AN EAGLE FLIES

OVER RAJAH

AN ASPIRING EAGLE SCOUT

PARTNERS WITH SHRINERS

By Sam Ellis

Dylan Confer has been in scouting since grade school. He is now a senior at

Parkland H.S. He is a member of Troop 1600, Jordan UCC, Allentown.

During his last year in school, Dylan is working towards the highest rank a scout

can achieve, that of an Eagle Scout. Becoming an Eagle Scout takes perseverance

and work. Boy Scouts must earn all the ranks in order. Among the seven steps in

attaining the Eagle Scout badge, Dylan has earned the required 21 merit badges,

and he has served in leadership positions for at least 6 months, having managed

Cub Scout Dens as an example. One of the most difficult requirements is to

propose, plan, and carry out an Eagle Service project. The project must benefit

the organization that it is done for.

That service project was how Dylan came to be involved with Rajah Shrine.

Dylan was aware of the Shriners and the work they do supporting the Children’s Hospitals. He also is friends with Wayne Grumbein’s

son Jarrett Nguyen, so he was aware of a lot of Shrine activities that Jarrett’s dad was involved in.

8

Life Scout Dylan Confer

Dylan decided that he would like to do his service project for the Shriners.

“I thought it would be a neat thing to help out,” he said, “since they do

so much for children and it’s all on a volunteer basis.” Eventually the

relationship with the Grumbein’s led to John Grumbein, Wayne’s father,

helping make the connection with Rajah.

A meeting was held at the complex where Dylan, his mother April,

and father Douglas met with the Board of Directors. Dylan explained that

one of the requirements of attaining his Eagle Scout rank was managing

a volunteer service project. His request was met with knowing smiles as

several Rajah Shriners are Eagles Scouts and have gone through the long

process in attaining their Eagle Scout badges themselves.

The outcome of the meeting was a plan that included refurbishing one

of the buildings at the complex. Les worked with Dylan on the details and,

within a few days, the project came to life.

Dylan managed a team of up to 9 scouts, his scout master, his younger

brother, and a few Shriners such as Bruce Denlinger and Les Werley. They

did power washing and painting of the residence building.

Les Werley commented that “Dylan did an admiralable job in managing this diverse group

of workers and, in doing so, he gained valuable experience.” The experience will stand him

well in his journey to becoming at Eagle Scout.

The requirements are difficult and only about 6.5% of all eligible Boy Scouts earn their

Eagle rank.

Since it takes so much work, why do boys do it? Some are mature enough to understand

the impact that having the award will have on their lives. Others are encouraged by their

Scoutmasters and by their parents. Dylan’s parents are involved in his scouting. His mother

April is on committee with Troop 1600, Minsi Trail Council, North Valley District.

Scouting and Masonry share common values. And well they should because The Boy Scouts

of America was founded in 1910 by Masonic Brothers Daniel Carter Beard, William D. Boyce,

and James E. West, along with Mr. Ernest Seton. These founding fathers succeeded in creating one


of America’s finest youth organizations by introducing the values of Freemasonry. And

Masons have stayed involved in scouting.

The Daniel Carter Beard Masonic Scouter Award is a Boy Scout Community

Organization Award, used by community organizations to honor their volunteers for

their involvement in Scouting. Grand Lodge awards an Eagle Scout Commendation

Certificate for Scouts in Pennsylvania.

We wish Dylan success in his quest. We understand that he is just a few months away

from attaining his goal and becoming an Eagle Scout. He will be in good company, as

many successful people in business, politics, sports, and even NASA are Eagle Scouts.

Among them is one of this writer’s personal heroes: Neil Armstrong, the first man on

the moon was an Eagle Scout, as was President Gerald Ford, and movie director Steven

Spielberg. The most successful Eagle Scout (by net worth) is Sam Walton, founder of

Wal-Mart.

Upon graduation, Dylan hopes to enter college and study engineering. In our opinion

he is on his way to a successful life and career. The Boy Scouts of America produce

many fine young men, including Eagle Scouts, who may become members and leaders

in our great Fraternity. Maybe someday we will see Dylan as a leader in Rajah Shrine.

Jere Lesher,

PP

LEGION OF HONOR

Don’t hold your breath, but things are gradually coming back to normal. So far, it’s been one step

forward, then half a step back. Hang in there and keep your fingers crossed.

On the plus side, our Commander’s Ball was a big success. We had 62 people in attendance and I

didn't hear a single complaint. Doubletree Hotel did a fabulous job. Accommodations were very good,

food was very good, and the entire staff couldn’t have been better. I understand that Doubletree also did

an excellent job for the Potentate’s Ball.

The entertainment was also very good. No stage play, but a very excellent magician who walked

around from table to table and did his thing. We’ve all seen magicians, but this guy was outstanding.

Here’s another reminder for that trip we have planned to the International Tattoo in Norfolk, Virginia.

It is scheduled for April 16 & 17, 2021. A flyer will be sent as soon as we have all the information. Those

who had scheduled for the 2020 trip that got

cancelled get first dibs. There will be a limited

number of reservations, probably around 50, so

get yours in early. This trip is restricted to adults

only. If you’ve never attended this event, give it serious thought. I have

yet to hear a negative comment from those who have attended in years

past. Everyone thought it was great.

Our next Legion event (hopefully) is the Past Commander’s Night

on October 13. Keep your fingers crossed. Unfortunately, cancellations

this year have been the name of the game. This is our annual pork &

sauerkraut, hot dogs, and dessert dinner. This year, all our Ladies are

invited. Cost to all attendees (except Past Commanders) is $5.00.

LEHIGH SHRINE CLUB

Fellow Nobles,

What a few months we have had! The only things we can count on are surprises and the complete

alterations of any plans. I should have written this article over the Labor Day weekend because we

normally leave for MASA the day after Labor Day. Hopefully next year?

It has been decided by the Officers of our Club that all current Officers will serve in their current office

throughout 2021. We are all grateful for the willingness of our Nobles to serve another term for the benefit

of our Club.

We are still intending to have our Annual Golf Outing on Wednesday, October 14th at the Iron Lakes

Country Club. A flyer was e-mailed on September 10th with the necessary information.

Our Annual Ladies Night is scheduled for Saturday, November 21, at the Shepherd Hills Golf Club. It is

the same location we used in 2019. Their restaurant, The Foundation, did an excellent job and we received many positive comments.

All Shriners and their Ladies are welcome. We will have live music by The Exes.

The Lehigh Shrine Club Christmas Party will be held at the Brass Rail on Friday, December 4. All Shriners’ and their Ladies

are invited to attend. More information

will be available at a later date. We will

be e-mailing flyers about these events in

the near future.

As for now, stay well and be safe.

Remember to support and attend your

Club and Units. Without member

participation, we WILL cease to exist.

As always, it's GREAT to be a

Shriner!

The Potentate’s Ball

The event was held on August 8th at the Doubletree Hotel in Reading.

Seventy nobles and ladies were in attendance. Assistant Rabban Joe Hagan

Sr. was master of ceremonies. After the official introductions a delicious

dinner was served. Illustrious Sir Marvin Miller was introduced by Joe as our

Pandemic Potentate.

Ill. Sir took the comment in stride as the audience appreciated the humor.

Ill. Sir Marvin spoke to the assemblage about the year so far and his hope that

things will get back to some semblance of order in the near future.

There were two special guests in attendance, and Ill. Sir introduced first

Keith McKnight, PP Zembo and Past President of MASA. Keith spoke briefly

then handed Ill. Sir a donation to the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia.

The second guest, Ronald Gardner, Potentate of Crescent Temple, came up

to the podium next. The two potentates then passed Honorary memberships

certificates between them. The evening was

capped by dance music. All in all, it was a

great event thanks to the hard work of Chief

Aide Gregory Miller and Lady Sharon who

created the theme and designed much of

the decor, Mic Frey and Lady Beth who

always do a great job with decorations,

Donald Loos who handled reservation and,

as always, the aides supported the event.

Now that the lodges

have opened, the club

is back to holding our

meetings at Whitfield

Lodge in Tatamy. It gives

us a reassuring feeling

during the crisis to be back

at our regular meeting

place. Solid turf so to

speak.

As I’m writing this

report, I am reminded how

much attending MASA has become a part of our

yearly Shriner routine and how Lady Kay and I look forward to attending each

year. Hopefully, the convention will be up and running again in 2021. I certainly

hope so.

On a brighter note, the Tin Lizzies held their annual clam bake on September

19th at Bady’s Grove in Wind Gap. We had seventy plus nobles and ladies in

attendance including Ills. Sir Marvin Miller and

Lady Marie. There was lots of sunshine, food, and music. Everyone had a great

time.

Thanks to committee members Ron

their hard work. And kudos to Ray

Barron for calling the bingo.

Wishing Well brings in $1,700.

In this time of shutdowns, and laid

off workers, I found it almost a miracle

that one of our collection boxes at a retail establishment in Easton brought in over

$1,700 In the just three months. We call them Wishing Wells and the one at Millers

Hardware in West Easton, consistently brings in large sums but the August total just

blew us away. Bob Miller said he admires the Shriners and the work our Children’s

Hospitals do. He says any tips, etc. he receives go into the box as well as customer

donations. The club has presented Mr. Miller with a Certificate of Appreciation for

his contributions over of the years. But this contribution is one for the record. All

proceeds from our Wishing Wells go directly to the hospital fund.

As always, it’s great to be a Shriner!

The year had been a slow start for transporting patients to Shrine Hospital; at least it was after the

Pandemic stuck us. But we are beginning to pick up the pace again.

Unfortunately, we have suffered a setback in fund raising to pay for the transport vehicle rentals, etc.

Our fund-raising raffle was canceled primarily due to cancelation of MASA, where we made the majority

of our income. Moreover, donations have dwindled as well. If that sounds like a plea for help, it is!

Our President, Noble Eric Kissinger, is planning on holding our November 19 meeting as scheduled.

We will hold elections for next year’s officers.

Legion of Honor Commander’s Ball

Honoring Commander Clinton J, Starkey and Lady Betty

This year’s ball was held at the Doubletree by Hilton in Reading on August 29. Commander Clinton Starkey and Lady Betty

presided over an elegant affair. The evening was hosted by Joseph Hagan.

Guests included the Commander of MASA Shrine

Legions of Honor, Commander Frederick Roland

with his lady Judy. After dinner, 2019 Commander

Mike Quinn gave a toast to the Legion and all who

served.

When it was his turn at the podium, Commander

Starkey began by thanking all of those nobles who

have supported him throughout the year. He gave a

special thanks to Past Commander Bill Remo, PP,

who he credited with encouraging him to get in line to

be Commander. Commander Starkey’s talk included

a heartfelt recounting of his time in the service, no

doubt causing many in the room to recount their own

experiences. Commander Starkey closed by thanking

Jim Cocuzza and his committee for a fine job.

Gift presentations were made by Commander

Fredrick Rolland, Leon Collins, PC, Mike Quinn,

PC, and Robert McCormack, PC.

The evening was capped by magician Matty

Whipple.

He is the official magician for the Philadelphia

Phillies. Matty had many of us shaking our heads and

asking, “how did he do that?” It was a memorable

evening made the more so by the fact that it has been

a long summer with only the recent Pote’s Ball to

bring Rajah Shriners together to socialize with our

ladies and fellow nobles.

Larry Christman

Greetings from your String Band,

Hope everyone is safe and healthy. We’re going to miss the trip to Virginia Beach, playing in the

Hospitality Room and the parade. Looking forward to next year for a bigger and better parade.

A shout out to our secretary, Tom Dietrich. He has done a great job keeping us informed. As I have

always heard it said in Blue Lodge and during my time as Master of Barger Lodge, the secretary is the

backbone of the Lodge and makes the Master look good. Tom makes us look good by making sure we

have enough musicians on the float, by scheduling all the events, and by making sure we are at the right

place at the right time. Thanks for all your dedication, Tom. He sent out an agenda about two weeks prior

to our August 12th meeting. You could attend the meeting in person or reply by email to the various

matters of business.

Business at hand:

- Thank you, Chris, for handling this year’s float inspection.

- Our annual September picnic was cancelled.

- As we have done in prior years, we will again be donating to the Ladies Basket Bingo in October.

- Our annual donation to the Children’s Hospital was discussed. Considering the situation, having had no income this year since

all parades were cancelled, we will still make a donation which will be taken out of our treasury.

- All were in agreement to cancel the annual joint Christmas Party with Concert Band.

Officer elections:

All officers elected or appointed have agreed to remain in their positions for 2021: PresidentMike Gubich, 1st VP Larry

Christman, 2nd VP Mike Shannon, Secretary Tom Dietrich and Treasurer Joe Aulenbach.

Next meeting is tentatively scheduled for October 14. Details will follow. A 2021 activity schedule was sent by email of our

meeting dates and tentative parades.

As always, there is an open-door invitation for musicians to play in the String Band. If you play an instrument, come out to

a rehearsal on the second Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Complex. If you need to brush up, we’ll help you get started. Just come to

rehearsal with your instrument.

With the support of our Ladies, our purpose is that we might play our instruments so that some day a physically challenged child

may walk and play again.

Stay safe.

LEBANON SHRINE CLUB

It is with a heavy heart that the Lebanon Co. Shrine Club is announcing the passing of our Club

President, Past Potentate Eugene Heiges, Zembo Shrine Potentate in 2011. Gene loved being a Shriner

and will be remembered for his willingness to do what needed to be done and for his kind and gentle

manner. He will be missed. First Vice President Jim Foultz has taken over the club leadership.

The club has not met since February, but we are up and running again the 4th Monday September 28

at 6:30 p.m. with ladies always invited. We will be meeting at Governor Wolf's favorite Lebanon County

restaurant, Heisey’s Diner, Rt. 72 North of Lebanon. Dress is casual.

At this point it is hard to plan activities with any type of certainty, but we must all give it our best shot.

Our Potentate set the example and overcame huge obstacles to have his ball/dinner/gathering, whatever it

was required to be named. We cannot just say we cannot do something, get discouraged and give up. In this

tough time, we need to reach out to our brothers, work together and get it done, somehow.

Restrictions are not an excuse, just cause for a little more thought.

Our Shrine has great facilities and some of the strongest and best people anywhere. Let us take this opportunity and utilize them

both and move forward. Heed the advice from Illustrious Marv, follow his example, and make Rajah Shrine better than ever.

Rev Newhart as Pontius Pilate

REV. DAVID NEWHART REACHING

PEOPLE IN THE CRISIS THROUGH

VIDEO SERMONS

By Sam Ellis

It started in March with a need to reach his parishioners at the Zion Lehigh

Evangelical Lutheran Church in Alburtis when the pandemic hit. At first,

Reverend Newhart started curbside sermons. But, along with the inconvenience,

it was dependent on the weather. A friend of a member of the church, who owns

a video production company, Scott Stonebeck, suggested that Rev. Newhart

could videotape the sermons and air them online via YouTube. The first

sermon they taped was the Easter Sunday sermon. The results and feedback

were encouraging. David said, “Access to the videos addressed the feelings

of anxiety that was being experienced by our older members who have been

attending this church every Sunday for years.”

Soon after the first taping aired, David asked Ill. Sir Marvin Miller about

the possibility of adding the video sermons to Rajah’s website to share them

with the membership. Ill. Sir Marvin liked the idea and a link was added to the

rajahshrine.org that connects directly to the sermons on YouTube.

The ability to videotape his sermons in the church has allowed Rev. Newhart

to expand the content of the sermons adding depth and detail. In fact, he often

portrays characters from the stories within the sermons. He has played several biblical and historical figures such as the Apostle

Paul, Pontius Pilate, and Martin Luther in some of the videos. He says he has played a lot of interesting characters over the years at

different churches and different events.

The acting comes easily to David, as he has a background in theatre. He appeared in plays while attending Susquehanna

University. In fact, he has an interesting history that relates back to his days in New York City when he was an intern at St Peters

Church at 54th Street and Lexington Avenue. He ran an “Off Off-Broadway” theatre in the basement. The church had several

famous Broadway actors as members and many that frequented it. And some of these actors would stage lunch hour mini plays in

the church basement. Celebrities Rev. Newhart met that frequented the theatre were F. Murry Abrams, Dustin Hoffman, Donald

Pleasence and James Earl Jones, to name a few. They also had jazz sessions at the church

on Sunday nights where he met Dizzy Gilespie, Thelonious Monk, and Duke Ellington and

many others. He wished he could have stayed but it was only a one-year internship. David

says he enjoyed that time in New York and the relationships and experience contributed to

his education in the ministry.

Over the years David has acted in dinner theatres in Reading and has appeared in several

plays in community theatres in the area. He has done several degrees in Consistory over

the years, for which he received the Masonic Service Award. David says he is a frustrated

actor at heart.

The video sermons have been a success but David’s participation will soon be coming

to an end.

After 50 years in the ministry, he

is in semi-retirement and moving to

the Masonic Village in Elizabethtown.

The taped sermons will remain on

YouTube for a while. You can view

Reverend Newhart’s sermons by

going to rajahshrine.org. The video

is displayed on the opening page as

Sunday Message. Or you can go online

to YouTube and enter Zion Lehigh

Lutheran Church.

Greg Lewis, PP

THE CHAPLAIN’S STUDY

Paul entreats the community in Corinth “…do not accept the grace of God in vain” and quotes Isaiah

“At the acceptable time I have listened to you, and helped you on the day of Salvation.”

Paul is trying to get the Corinthians out of a common happening with us, that is becoming set in

our ways and comfortable with the status quo. If you accept God’s grace, then take it to its fulfillment,

and make it active in your world. Don’t just receive God’s grace you must pass it on. God’s grace is

meaningless until you give it away to others. When you understand the nature of this God we love, then

you will see why that is necessary.

Jesus quotes Isaiah 61: 1-2 “ The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to

bring good tidings to the afflicted; he has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to

the captives and opening of the prison to those who are bound…” These are the basics of what Jesus did in

his lifetime as the Son of God. Yet when he read these lines from Isaiah in the synagogue in his home town

Nazareth, the people became angry and put him out of the city and tried to throw him of a cliff. Jesus just

disappeared in their midst. It is through Jesus that we received God’s grace which brings us salvation.

PROVOST GUARD

Since our last report, a couple of months ago, little has changed with your Provost Guard, except to say

that we are sorely disappointed that we had to cancel our annual All You Care to Eat Spaghetti Dinner on

Saturday, October 10 due to the current Covid-19 situation. BUT take heart, we promise that one way or

another we WILL have two dinners in 2021. The dates will be confirmed soon, and we will report them to

you in the next edition of the Rajah News.

In the meantime, I can report that, although it has been rough going at times, we managed to hold a

couple of meetings and are making plans to continue, as we look forward to a great 2021.

Since most of the events scheduled for this year have been cancelled, we are really looking for a

wonderful and busy time in the future. As none of the major activities will be held, we will continue to meet.

Just in case something does happen, we’ll be ready for it.

As you know the MASA convention in Virginia Beach had been cancelled, but thanks to the advances

in modern communications, the MASA-Provost Guard will be holding a virtual meeting later in September,

presided over by Colonel Dennis Loch, of Rajah Provost, who will relinquish the reigns to the next in line,

Noble Joseph A. Orlando of Crescent Temple. Also moving up will be Ill. Sir Jared R. Kichline, PP, Rajah Shrine, to the position

of First Lieutenant.

We are also sending best wishes to our President Bob Himes who is recovering from a fall in which he broke his arm. Get well

soon, Bob, and we look forward to seeing you real soon.

With just a few months left in this year, it will be great to turn the calendar and welcome a new year, one hopefully filled with

more activities than 2020. And on that note,

we know it has been a disappointing year for

our Illustrious Sir Marv Miller and his lady,

Marie, but take heart that, under some rather

extremely difficult circumstances, you did a

great job in keeping the Nobility informed of

what activities were taking place and making

sure that everyone stayed safe and did have

an enjoyable time when we were together.

Although this has been a rather unusual

year, should you be a member of Rajah

Shrine and are looking to belong to a hard

working Unit, please consider this your

invitation to join us on the third Tuesday of

the month at 7 p.m. in the All-Purpose room

on the Rajah Shrine Campus for a look-see

into what we are doing.
