The Potentate’s Message
Es Selamu Aleikum
Is that hot dogs and hamburgers I smell on the grill? Yes it is; summer is here. We
just Nobles, need Ladies the weather and Friends: to co-operate so we are all able to enjoy the season.
The Pote, CR, Asst. Rabban and the HP&P have returned from the Imperial Session
held in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Quite a bit of business was conducted and the Shrine
Parade was very enjoyable, but it did rain a little on the parade towards the end. It is
always a pleasure to get together with Nobles from other Shrine Temples and catch up
with what is going on with them.
The Pote’s Picnic will be held on August 3rd at the Shrine Complex and we look
forward to seeing everyone there. You should bring a lawn chair and a pop-up tent, if
you have one, to relax and have some shaded area. The gates open at 11:00 a.m. The
mini-ceremony for the new Nobles will be at 12:00 noon. We still need to find new
members for the December Ceremonial Class. We will start serving food at 12:00 noon
and clams at 1:00 p.m. The serving of ice cream will also begin at 12:00 noon.
Ask your worthy Master-Mason brothers to come join us at Rajah Shrine.
We will be heading south to Virginia Beach for our fall MASA meeting in September. This is always
a great time. This will be followed by the Sportsmen’s Raffle on September 17th. At this writing, ticket
sales are on par with last year. Please keep selling tickets.
Yours in the Faith,

THE STORY OF A TRADITION, BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE
The History of Shriners Hospitals for Children
Greg Lewis, PP
Editor's Note: As reported in the June/July, 2022 Rajah News, the story of the “History of Rajah
Shrine” is being revised to include the following information: “The large Banquet Hall at the Rajah
Shrine Complex was built in 2005-2006 and was dedicated in August, 2006 by Illustrious Sir Jere Lesher.”
The year of 2022 is very significant in the history of Shriners International, Shriners Children’s Hospitals
and Rajah Shrine. This is the third article in a series to be published this year in an effort to bring you a
history of one of the greatest fraternal organizations that exists today.
In the first article we looked at the history of Shriners International, the second article was the history of
Rajah Shrine, and the third article, presented in 2 parts, is dedicated to the founding of the Shriners Hospitals
for Children. Part 1 appears in this edition of the Rajah News, with Part 2 to be included in the October/
November 2022 edition.
The start of the Shriners Hospitals for Children
The Shriners have a rich history of fellowship and philanthropy. Our organization consists of approximately 300,000 men,
belonging to 200 Shrine Temples, centers or chapters around the world.
First Shrine Hospital, Shreveport, LA,
Opened in 1922
Shriners are known
for their colorful parades,
circuses, and clowns. But
there is also a serious side to
this international fraternity.
A little more than 100
years ago in 1920, a Shriner
from Atlanta’s Yaarab
Temple, Noble Forrest
Adair, made a passionate
plea at the Annual Shriners
Imperial convention to
urge his fellow Shriners
into passing a resolution to
approve the establishment of
a Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children. Under development
for over two years, in 1922 the Shreveport Shriners Hospital
was ready to accept its first patient, and by 1927, 14 more
Shriners Hospitals were in operation scattered around the United States.
The rules for this hospital, and all of the other Shriners Hospitals which
would follow were simple: to be admitted, a child must be from a family unable
to pay for the orthopedic treatment they would receive, be under 14 years of
age (later increased to 18) and be, in the opinion of the Chief of Medical Staff,
someone whose condition could be helped by treatment at the Shriners Hospital
At the Imperial Session meeting in Toronto in 1962, the establishment of
centers dedicated to the treatment of children afflicted with acutely dangerous
burns were established.
The first Shrine Hospitals for Burn treatment was opened in Galveston,
Texas on March 20, 1966; the hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, was opened on
February 19, 1968, and the third facility was opened in Boston on November
2, 1968. As condition and treatment options were updated extensively over the
Noble Forrest Adair
One of the first patients at Shriners new
Burn Hospital in Galveston
years since opening these initial facilities, new facilities were built. The new hospitals in Cincinnati and Galveston were competed
in 1992 and the new facility for a burn hospital in Boston was completed in 1999.
Plus, the addition of a burn treatment center was opened in 1997 at the new Shriners Hospital for Children in Sacramento,
California, in 1997.
Along with Orthopedic and Burn treatment,
Shriners Hospitals added two more treatment
In 1980, Shriners Hospitals responded to
another pediatric need by opening a spinal cord
injury rehabilitation unit at the Philadelphia
This was the first pediatric spinal cord injury
unit in the country.
In 2005, the organization discovered that
facial clefts are one of the most common birth
defects in the U.S. Despite the frequency of its
occurrence, and the severity of the deformities,
complete care and treatment can be difficult
to obtain. As a result, Shriners Hospitals for
Children added a fourth official specialty to its
care disciplines: cleft lip and palate.
In the early 1960s, the health care system
aggressively entered the structured research
field. The innovative research conducted at
Shriners Hospitals for Children increases the total worldwide body of medical knowledge, potentially benefiting people of all ages
around the globe.
Shriners Hospitals for Children is changing lives every day through innovative pediatric
specialty care, world-class research and outstanding medical education. This care is given
to these patients, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Their care and treatment is not
based on one’s ability to pay for any of their treatment, whatsoever.
All services are paid by the Shriners from a hospital fund supplied by the Shriners
Hospitals for Children Endowment Fund, which is supported by the gifts and bequests
of Shriners, their families, and the general public. Additional revenues come from fundraising
events and from an annual hospital assessment paid by each member of the Shrine.
In 2021, Shriners Hospital for Children officially changed its name to better reach
out to all children who may be suffering from a specific physical need and not just those
described by the former name of the philanthropy.
Now, “Shriners Children’s” currently includes hospitals/medical centers, orthopedic
units, several satellite clinics and four burn centers, including the Sacramento Hospital
which treats patients for both burns and orthopedic needs.
So, from that humble beginning of the founding of the first Shriners Hospital in 1927,
a group of specialized hospitals have grown into a health network of 22 specialized
hospitals providing expert medical care to more than 1,500,000 children,
regardless of the patient’s or their family’s ability to pay. These Shrine
supported “Temples of Mercy” have come to be known as the “World’s
Greatest Philanthropy,” operating throughout North America, including
20 facilities in the United States and one each in Mexico and Canada.

In the next edition of the Rajah News, we’ll look at more ways the
Shriners Children’s has helped over one million patients and how the
treatment has expanded and has become even more accessible to more
patients and their families.
Rajah Shriner making
music at Grand Lodge
By Sam Ellis
He has been playing piano and organ since he was eight. Rajah Shriner Robert
Trimble is Grand Organist for Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. And he never thought
he would be doing what he is doing now.
I first became aware of Robert (Bob) Trimble and his unique position at Grand
Lodge while taking pictures at the Ladies Meat Bingo on May 13th. I wanted to get
a shot of the nobles and ladies who were working in the kitchen. While I was lining
up everyone for the shot, Jim Prettyman mentioned that one of the nobles in the
picture plays organ at Grand Lodge. I thought ‘you don’t meet someone like that
every day and this would be a great story for Rajah News.’ So here it is.
Robert said, “I started with piano lessons in grade school. Later on I took lessons
on the organ. So, I’ve been playing pretty much all my life.” He is now age 63. He
came to the position of Grand Organist in 2009 after an interview with then Grand
Master Stephen Gardner. The Grand Master was attending the Grand Matron’s Banquet and heard Robert playing the organ for the
Robert sitting at the
organ at Longwood
“I was told that the Grand Master wanted to see me after the Banquet,” Bob said. “I didn’t
know what to think. Did I do something wrong?” So, he went back into the auditorium after
the event and found the Grand Master sitting on the organ bench. The interview went well and
after some official paperwork down in Philly, the deal was done and Robert has been in the
appointed position of Grand Organist ever since.
He plays for various functions at Grand Lodge as well as functions and events outside of
the lodge such as weddings, funerals, and official ceremonies. “I also enjoy that part of the
position, playing in other locations such as at the Naval Academy,” said Robert. “Meeting new
brethren and having the opportunity to play different and sometimes very old organs is always
and enjoyable experience.”
Robert comes to the position of Grand Organist with an impressive Masonic background.
He has been a member of New London Lodge No. 545 since 1988. He was Worshipful
Master of the lodge in 2002 and served as secretary for 16 years. Bob is a member of the Valley
of Reading and received his 33 degree in 2019. He was Most Wise Master of the Valley in 2021.
Robert also belongs to the Royal Arch No. 264 in Coatesville and Centennial Commandry No.
55 in Coatesville.
Eastern Star has been a part of his Masonic life also. He’s been involved in the Robert
Fulton Chapter No. 446 Order of Eastern Star for the last 21 years. He often plays the organ at meetings, balls, and ceremonies.
This past June, Robert was installed as Associate Grand Patron of the Grand Chapter of PA.
He also holds memberships in the Royal Order of Scotland, Red Cross of Constantine, and Tall Cedars of Lebanon. Oh, and he’s
been a Rajah Shriner for 33 years.
When I asked what keeps him involved with being Grand Organist, he said, “I guess the bottom line is I enjoy making people
Women Impacting Care, chaired by Shriners international’s Frist Lady

Shriners Children’s mission to change and improve lives. This year’s
emphasis is on pediatric sports-related injuries. The World is Your Oyster
is a way of supporting this effort through donations. Donors who would
like to support the program may purchase The World is Your Oyster
products or make donations on-line.

Not much to report from the club as we do not meet for the three summer months. I can report that our
May steak night was great and Ill. Joe Hagan and Lady Joyce left full of steak. I think everyone else did,
too. That is about all I remember. But I do remember the steak part. Oh yeah, and the baked potato.
We had a semi-successful hospital crusade at the Redner’s in Fredericksburg. A special thanks to Les
Keller for again serving as chairman, and for his personal donation. We found that a lot of folks that shop
at this particular Redner’s do not carry cash so that kept our total down. The blowing rain was not much
In case you have not noticed, the pavilion at the complex is getting heavy use again this summer season.
I think we sometimes forget how fortunate we are to have the great facilities at the Rajah Shrine complex.
We should also stop to appreciate the forethought and commitment of the Nobles from years past that created
what we have today. I believe that spirit is still alive and well at Rajah.
I hope to see everyone at the summer events. Do not forget Bingo and selling those Sportsman Raffle tickets.
Our next meeting for Lebanon County Shrine Club is Sept. 26 at 6:30 at Heisey’s Diner, Rt. 72 North of Lebanon. Ladies are
always invited. The dress is casual.
We have interesting programs scheduled for each meeting so please join us for great food and fellowship.
Finally, summer is here and the Potentate’s Picnic, outdoor meetings, and no masks!
It’s great to be a Shriner again!
Our unit would like to recognize Director Barry Reed for his many years serving the unit as our
Director. He was responsible for coordinating our parade schedule, keeping our vehicles running, setting
up the stage and second section for the
ceremonials and attending the S.D.A.
conventions. It was very hard to accept
Barry’s resignation as director for
the unit. His expertise will be missed
We are still waiting for a final
decision from the International Shrine Directors on holding the
second section at the mini ceremonial at the Pote’s Picnic. We
would also like to wish Ike Boyer well. He holds many titles in
the unit but can’t attend meetings due to health issues. The unit
misses you, Ike!
Thanks to Mic, Lee, Barry, Les and Jamie for working the
food stand at the Summer Dance Recital. It was a very successful
mini fund raiser for the unit.
Our parade schedule will not begin until the fall at Topton,
Pine Grove and Hamburg. For now, if any member can help with
cleaning or small repairs on the vehicles, please contact one of
the unit officers.
Our unit will be responsible for small jobs this summer to
help the complex prepare for different events. Please come to a
meeting of the Director’s Staff at the complex, the first Wednesday
of the month at 7 p.m.. to offer your help.
That is all for this issue, Nobles. Remember, help us hold the
rope for those who can’t. Stay safe and we’ll see you on the first

The Pote’s Golf Outing took place on a sunny
day on Friday, June 4 at Rich Maiden Golf Course.
Chairman Joel Franco and the Golf Committee of
Ron Rapp, PP, Terry Hulsizer and Bill Remo, PP did

for “Tin Can Races.” It was a hoot and
just about everyone went away a winner.
Thanks to all who attended and all of those
who helped to make the event a success.
The club participated in three parades
this summer and are looking to do several
around Labor Day and especially the big
parade at MASA in September. Our major
parade season is in October.
We’ll see you at MASA.
Forks of the Delaware Tin Lizzies
The “dog days” of summer are generally considered to be the period between early July to early
September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere. Webster
defines it as “a period of stagnation or inactivity.” But for Rajah and the clubs & units, that couldn’t be
further from the truth. The Pote’s Golf Outing, Cigar Night, Club/Unit picnics and parades are just a
smattering of what takes place in the summer for Rajah Shriners.
Again this year, the club gave a pizza party for the Easton High School Special Needs students who
label the pie boxes for our bakes. The Tin Lizzies have been working with the students for three years now
on this joint project with the Easton School system and these great kids.
By the time you read this, the Tin Lizzies will have had their Annual Clam Bake at Bady’s Grove
in Wind Gap. We
had a great time

towing it home again on the 11th. Unfortunately, Pete won’t be attending MASA this year. He's been our
“go-to” guy each year. and deserves many “Thank You’s”. If you can help, contact our Commander, Fred

– Rajah Shrine 2020 Trip: Music & Rails in West Virginia –
As has happened all too often in the past couple of years, we start this article with the report of the passing
of one of our most dedicated Chanters, Noble Ronald N. Weitzel. Noble Ron was a long-time member of
the Chanters and he contributed mightily to the success of our Unit. Ron served with distinction and honor
as the Mayor of the Borough of Wyomissing, PA and continued serving the people of his hometown by
making sure the annual Fourth of July Parade in the borough included an appearance by many of the Units
of Rajah Shrine, including the Chanters. We were very proud to fulfill his requests as, once again this past
July 4th, we rode our float through the streets waving and singing as we dedicated this year’s appearance
to Noble & Brother Ron Weitzel. Well done, good and faithful servant.
Although we have lost several of our most dedicated members over the past few years, we are still singing
and enjoying the camaraderie of being one of the top Chanter units in Shrinedom. We have weathered some
rough times and have perservered through thick and thin and are moving forward by booking singing engagements for future dates.
President Dwayne Join Miller, Chief in Rabban cooperation Marvin with our and Conductor Lady Marie Bruce Miller Rohrbach on and a 3-night Unit Director trip Dave to DeTurk, are receiving

Our June campout at the Oasis with NCT (National Campers and Travelers) was a great event. We
held our club meeting on Saturday morning as usual. We also held our joint dinner that evening, under the
pavilion, with an added bonus. Noble Barry Voigt had his son, David Howe, come out to prepare a picnic
meal like no other. His entire day was spent over the grill and all were well rewarded by his efforts. To top
it off, he brought his ice cream machine for a do-it-yourself sundae. If that doesn’t entice you to come out

Greetings from your String Band!
We had lots of fun with the crowd at The Parksburg Anniversary In The Park. We handed out kazoos to
the kids along with those that thought they were kids. We were under a tent on the hottest day of the year,
but the crowd was very responsive. All went well, and we had a great time.
We had wonderful weather for the Lititz and Glenside Parades. It was great to be back out on the street
to hear our fans yelling, “We love you Shriners! Keep up the great work!”
Our next gig is MASA Sept 8-11 followed by our fall parade season beginning with Ephrata Fair Parade
on September 21st. Our combination String Band/Concert Band picnic
will be held Sept 26th at the Complex. On Sept 28th is the New Holland
Spectacle of Bands and Roger Truck Show in Lititz is Oct 1st.
Here is continued educational information provided by master musician, Mike Gubish
Major chords are built using intervals of a Major 3rd. Examples: C Major has notes C=1st,
E=3rd, G=5th, F Major F, A, C-G Major G, BD.
To determine notes for a cord, you can make yourself a slide-rule. Use 2 pieces of lined tablet
paper. Write from the top of the page to the bottom, in one vertical (column), on the left edge of
one page, one series of the numbers 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1. Remember to incorporate the
whole and half steps, leave a vertical (column) top of page to bottom, one series of the letters
C D E F G A B C D E F G A B C. Remember this time that E, F, and B, C are a half step apart.
Now align the two pages beside each another. For example, if you align the C on page two, to
the 1 on page one, you have each degree of the C Major scale identified. The C, E, G should
align to 1,3,5. This is a C Major chord and known as a triad. Try another, this time align E flat
to 1. E flat, G, B flat should align to 1,3,5.
Watch for more tips in future articles. Thank you, Mike, for sharing your expertise with us.
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 with your instrument to rehearsal.
With the support of our Ladies, our purpose is that we might play our instruments so that someday a physically challenged child
may walk and play again.
See you at the parades!

rolling cigars for the Bethlehem SC
“Smoke ‘Em if you got ‘Em” Dinner
The Annual Cigar Night took place on June 3rd at the complex. It was the best attended
Cigar Night ever. 'The original Cigar Night was conceived by Tom Conlon, PP and Ed Frack,
both avid cigar smokers. Tom was in attendance this year. For the last two years the event
has been sponsored by the Shiners. The club’s president, Mike Zerbe, PP was the host for the
evening. The Bethlehem Shrine Club was on hand selling their hand rolled cigars. Masonic
Cigar Lodge No. 1 was there also. Entertainment was provided by the Good Ol’ Boys.

The Band has not been overly active the past few months. We did, however, participate in the annual
Hospital Crusade with members of Lehigh Shrine Club at the Redner’s store on Lehigh Street in Allentown.
We had an enjoyable time meeting new people and raised some money for the transportation fund also.
After we finished on Saturday, the group went to Ted Werkheiser’s home for lunch and refreshments.
Thank you and Lisa for your generous hospitality!
We are now preparing to go to the MASA convention in Virginia Beach. On Friday, September 9,
our own Dennis Guignet will be taking the reigns as President of the Mid Atlantic Shrine Oriental Band
Association. Also, Illustrious Sir Jared Kichline will be installed as 2nd Vice President of the Association.
We wish these two Nobles the best for the ensuing year in the respective offices.
On a very somber note, the Band would like to offer their condolences to Noble Paul Lizun and Noble
Bill Trusty on the loss of their Ladies Nancy and Janet. Noble Paul is treasurer of Lehigh Shrine Club.
Noble Bill is Past President of Motor Corps. Bill and Janet were instrumental with the formation of the
annual Night at the Races. Both will be sorely missed.
That seems to be all for now. I’ll have a report on MASA in our next issue. Until then, enjoy your summer, be safe, and most of
all, remember the kids in our hospitals.
I am writing this article today with a sad and heavy heart. Nancy Lizun, the wife of Noble Paul Lizun,
passed away from cancer on July 2. They had celebrated 55 years of marriage this past June 17. Please
keep Paul, Nancy, and their family in your prayers.
The Lehigh Shrine Club had its Annual Ladies Nite Bingo at the Complex on May 20. About 30
Nobles, Ladies and guests were present. We all enjoyed a buffet style meal of fruit cup, salad, baked
chicken, roast beef, ziti, and baked apple or cherry crisp for dessert.
We played a lot of Bingo and made sure everyone won a prize. There was a lot of fun and laughter
throughout the evening. We thank Noble Bryan Stoudt for calling the Bingo numbers. Also, many thanks
to our Noble President (for life) Dennis B. Guignet Sr. and his Lady Karen for all their hard work toward
Roger C. Reis making this a very successful (and fun) evening.
Our June meeting was on the 1st and held at the Paddock Restaurant in Allentown. We had 25 Nobles
and Ladies in attendance, including the Potentate and his Lady Joyce. The dinner was a salad and Chicken Cordon Bleu with
potatoes and vegetables. An ice cream dessert topped off a delicious meal.
The program was a talk by Ill. Sir Joseph J. Hagan Sr. about upcoming events with the Rajah Shrine.
Save the date of Wednesday, October 12, for the 2nd Annual Ron Neimeyer Memorial Golf Outing at the Twin Lakes Golf
Course. It is the old Iron Lakes which changed hands in January. The new owner has put several million dollars into improvements
for the golf course, buildings and landscaping. The Hillbillies had an outing there in May and had very positive remarks about the
Hope to see you all at MASA! Nobles, remember to support and attend your Clubs and Units. Without active membership, we
WILL cease to exist! As always, it’s GREAT to be a Shriner!
LEHIGH SHRINE CLUB
The Rajah Ladies, like all units and clubs, have wobbled and bobbled as we strove to get our meetings
restarted. We moved our luncheon day from Monday to Tuesday, but had to settle ultimately for Wednesday
because our host restaurant decided not to open each week until dinner on Tuesdays.
We have resumed our meetings with our latest two being: an inspiring speaker and program on
iamablefoundation.org and a pin/brooch sharing day to which we brought our favorites. I M Able foundation
provides grants, inclusive equipment and programming, and other resources for adaptive athletes.
If you are the widow of a Shriner and have missed the opportunity to enjoy this group, please contact
Judy Yorty, treasurer, at (717) 274-2129 to arrange for your luncheon. Chef Alan's American Bistro is
located at 525 Penn Ave., West Reading, PA 19611. Rajah Ladies meet monthly from March until January
each normal year, on the first Wednesday of the month at noon.

Rajah Shrine Golf Club continues in its quest to gain increased membership. Any Mason or Shriner is
more than welcome to participate in one or more of our scheduled functions.
Our second Golf outing was held on May 18, 2022, at Lebanon Valley Golf Club. As in previous years,
we were welcomed with open arms and all who participated had an enjoyable day.
The third of our scheduled outings was held at Green Acres Golf Course on June 16, 2022. This event
was held on a Thursday in an effort to increase participation of our members and friends. Once again, a
fun time was had by all.

Treasurer too, is one of our most popular settings. Once again, our pricing is $45.00 per person per round and includes

Here we are with the summer half over with some fun trips already over, but at least there are several yet
to come. By the time you read this, several members will have been to Sodus Bay, and we'll look forward
to their stories.
At our last meeting we were discussing some things we can do to get better attendance at our monthly
meetings. We decided each month to have dinner meetings
at different restaurants and include our Ladies. We can keep
the meetings short and hopefully find speakers that you find
interesting. Nobel Lloyd Roberts will be the guest speaker
at the July meeting and appropriately he will share with us
interesting facts about the flag.
Some of you have received phone calls regarding how to
improve our attendance and Secretary John Pavlik will report
on some of the interesting findings. I look forward to your input and introducing
activities that interest the majority of you.
Don’t forget the Sportsman’s raffle and the fact that we man two gates. It would be
nice to have at least eight people so we can spell each other. Ladies are encouraged
to attend the festivities and help us at the gates.
Once again, the 40 inch or better pike alluded me on the fly-in trip to St. Cyr
Royal. I catch a lot of big walleyes but the big pike plays games with me. I have 38s
and 39s but not 40!!!
The plane you see in the picture is a 1958 Beaver used when four of us headed to
a fishing Paradise. I wish all of you could have the experience just once.
Hope to see you fishing.

THE CHAPLAIN’S STUDY
It’s almost Labor Day weekend again - the time that signals the end of summer. Many of us have one
last time away in the mountains or the shore or just having a cookout in the back yard. It’s a time for
recreation that is recreating ourselves for a while.
There is a sea or lake in the Bible that we are familiar with called Galilee but it was not a recreation
lake; it was a place of work for the men who would become the disciples of Jesus. There were many towns
on that lake and Capernaum was probably the largest and best known.
Fishing, of course, was the main occupation of the people on the lake. Jesus came to them and called
them from their occupation to a brand-new calling, bringing the good news of God to all people.
Jesus spoke to these hard laborers and brought them to a new understanding of the will of God in their lives.
Two types of labor are here, the hard working had labor and white collar. There are those who labor
with their hands and those that labor with their minds. Jesus taught his disciples and also labored to give his
knowledge to them. His labor is no less important than those
fishermen who helped to feed people’s bodies as Jesus labored
to feed people’s spirits and minds.
We need both types of laborers to make the world work
today. No one is better than the other, just different. We need
to know that Jesus labor of love for one another is the best
that we can do. To love and be loved in return is everything in
the world today. Jesus’ labor of love was sharing God’s word
with all those in the pathways that he walked. The disciples
fishing and feeding people’s bodies brought them the work
they needed to accomplish and so they provided their goods
along with Jesus giving his labor.
