Greetings All!! I hope that everyone is doing well and being safe
and healthy. This Coronavirus isn’t seemly going to let up anytime
soon. With that being said there has been very little activity going
on at the temple thru the months of July and August. Lady Debra
and I with a group of Scimitar Shriners attended Sahara’s Potentate’s
Ball on Saturday August 22nd. All enjoyed an evening of the
Roaring 20’s and had a great time.
The Fall Season is just around the corner. Football is about to
start. Halloween is 2 months away. These are events that we can
look forward to participating in or watching.
Septembers Stated Meeting will be on Monday September 14,
2020 at 7 p.m. due to Labor Day being on Monday September 7th.
We will be having the Centennial Club Class of 2020 Induction Ceremony
at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception to follow. The inductees
are Nobles Clay Blackwell, Harry Stringfellow PP and James Rudell.
Congratulations to the Nobles for the milestone they have set.
The Louisiana Degree for August 28th and 29th has been cancelled.
Arkansas Grand Master Most Worshipful David Bradley sends his
apologies as he and Grand Secretary Brad Phillips had worked
hard in setting up this opportunity.
Scimitar’s Potentate’s Ball has been cancelled due to the hotel
not being able to accommodate us completely due to staffing issues
and Covid-19. Debra and I are extremely disappointed in this
development. We were looking forward to seeing everybody and
ending our year as Potentate and First Lady on a good note.
The Golf @ the Rock 2020 Championship Tournament is still
scheduled for October 17, 2020. There have been some adjustments
to how the tournament will be put on due to COVID-19.
Please see the registration form on the website for the changes.
The Bryant Fall Fest Parade that was scheduled for September 26th
has been rescheduled for October 31st. Parade Marshall David Livingston
is checking on the Parades that are scheduled for the Holiday
The Bedouin Murder Mystery Fundraiser scheduled for November
7th has been postponed indefinitely due to the Temple’s restricted
occupancy due to COVID-19. It will be rescheduled for some time
In closing, remember that our #1 goal is helping Shriner’s Hospitals
for Children help Shriners Children and having fun. Until next
time stay safe & healthy.
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.
