Potentate's Message

Nobles and Ladies,
We are off to a great start of fun and fellowship this year! I want to thank everyone who had a part in the Honored Ladies Luncheon. Many of the ladies provided thank you cards that were read at the last stated meet-ing and posted to the bulletin board. These ladies are an essential part of our Shrine family, and it was a privilege to be a part of such a fantastic event.
We continue to “Build Relationships and Provide Oppor-tunities”! The Patient’s Easter Party, the Crawfish Boil and members of the Divan attending AR and OG school are a few of the events during the past month.
Mark your calendars for Saturday June 25, 2022; Golf @ the Rock is coming. It will be at the Country Club of Arkansas, located in Maumelle, AR. We always have a great time and would encourage you to attend. You can contact Ill. Sir Russel Betts at russel@1hfinancial.net or 501-909-1947 for more information on sponsorship or signing up a team to participate.
Also, mark your calendar for Saturday, May 21, 2022; the Hook, Shrine and Sinker Bass Classic on Crowne Lake in Horseshoe Bend. We still have five rooms left if you would like to attend. We always have a lot of fun and encourage you to participate in this great event. Contact Holly Butler at hollybutler1012@gamil.com for additional information. For a list of upcoming events, check out the calendar on the website at https:/www.arkansasshriners.com/calendar.
Imperial session is just around the corner. We are look-ing forward to seeing you there! Imperial Sir Bill Bailey and Lady Debby will celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Shriner Children’s Hospital, July 2-7, 2022, in Minneap-olis, MN. If you still need accommodations, contact Noble Rick Brandon at gatorr36@gmail.com
The weather is warming up, and it is almost parade season, so dust off your parade vehicles and get them parade-ready! If you have a parade that you would like to add to the list, contact our Parade Marshall, David Livingston, at cousineddie00@gmail.com.
Thank you for all your support and for allowing Lady April and me an opportunity to represent your temple, Scimitar Shriners. If you have new and exciting ideas to build our membership, please reach out to me at superd02@aol.com or Ill. Sir John Robinson at rrobinson60@sbcglobal.net. We would love to hear from you!
Fraternally yours,
Ill. Sir David Moore

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.
