It’s the start of the Holiday Season. Parades are going to be
starting up, so get your rides and floats ready to use. Family
get togethers, meals and presents are a must. Especially this
year with the pandemic having controlled much of what we’ve
wanted to do.
We have had several events over the last 2 months. We
inducted 3 new members into the Centennial Club.
Congratulations to Noble Clay Blackwell, Ill. Sir Harry Stringfellow
PP and Noble James Rudell. Imperial Sir James Smith, Lady
Alice and MW Scott Pedley PGM of Wisconsin visited with us on
September 24th and the Arkansas Grand Lodge. We had dinner
and in keeping with Imperial Sir's theme this year “Getting
Back” to Fun and Fellowship we welcomed them with Hog Hats
and a roaring Hog call!
On October 17th we had the Golf @ the Rock tournament at
the Country Club of Arkansas in Maumelle. It was a beautiful
day for raising money for Shiners Hospital for Children’s
Transportation Fund. I want to say a BIG Thank You to Darrell
and Margie Burton and the volunteers for putting on a superb
tournament. Then was the afterparty at the Temple, which was
very well attended. A Big Thank You to Wayne and Joan
Launius, Ill. Sir Dennis Stevens and Dean and Barbara Riggin
for putting on the party and the good food.
The Patient’s Christmas Party will be on December 12, 2020
form 1 pm to 3 pm at Scimitar Shrine Temple. It will be a drive
thru event. We are asking the Clubs and Units to come out and
show their support to the patients.
In closing, Debra and I would like to say Thank You to everyone
for the support that you have shown us this year. It has
not been the year we had envisioned. I ask that we try and
make the rest of the year as good as possible and let’s have
Please stay safe and healthy and have a Happy Holiday
Yours in Faith,
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.
