Imperial Session is here! The Resolution that was
agreed to, will be voted on in Nashville in July.
Summer is here and came in BIG! (94 degrees already!)
I hope all of you are safe and you have electricity
We will have special guests at the August stated
meeting, so please try to be there if at all possible….
it will be a very heart warming experience.
Remember to make your plans for the September trip
to our hospital in Shreveport...it will be memorable
for us all, especially each of you who have never
been there and because this is what we are all
about—-”Having fun and Taking Care of our Children
the Shrine Way.”
On this note, I would like to share what happened to
me a few Saturdays ago. A lady came into my business
for work on her vehicle and on seeing my collection
of various Shrine Temple Fezzes, she asked
“Are you a Shriner?” I replied “Yes, Mam, I am.”
She responded with, “Well let me give you a hug!”
She explained that since her son, who since the age
of 9 months had been a patient at the Shreveport
Hospital for treatment of a birth defect; and though
he was no longer living as he was killed in an auto
accident at the age of 17, she would always be grateful
and have a special place in her heart for Shriners
and what they had done for her son. You can only imagine
how proud and emotional this was for me on
hearing that lady’s story. Again, that’s what we are

What we are about
Shriners International is a Fraternity which teaches ethics and morality. We welcome men of every color, creed, religion, sect, and opinion, but each candidate for Shriners International must be willing to profess his belief in a Supreme Being. No atheist can become a Shriner. The essential purpose of Shriners International is the further development of the individual Shriner as an honest, ethical, moral, sincere, caring, and charitable man, learning more about his own potential as a human being and developing his intellectual and spiritual character.
