POTENTATES MESSAGE

Greetings Nobles, Ladies, Families, and Friends.

It’s mid-July and the Imperial Session is over. Congratulations to our new Imperial Sir Kenny Craven and his lady JJ. We wish them a wonderful year.  Please put Charlotte, NC. on your calendar for next July’s Imperial Session. It looks like it’s going to be a great time and it’s driving distance for us!

Next up for us is our Annual Steak and Lobster Dinner at the Shrine on August 20th,

6 pm to 10 pm. A limited number of Lobsters in, the cash bar, get your reservations into the Recorder ASAP.  This year we’ve brought in a DJ, line dancing anyone?  The following weekend is the Kid Rock concert at the PNC Arts Center, CD sales. Lady Tes and I had a great time at the concert in Philly and we are looking forward to this one also. CDs solo d benefit the Hospitals, come join us at the concert! This is open for Nobles, Ladies, friends, and family members! Shrine shirt and Fez, comfortable shoes. Free entry for those selling CDs, let the Recorder know the names of those attending.

Let’s not forget MASA at Virginia Beach, Sept. 8-11. It’s a six-hour drive but the water is still warm and the hospitality rooms are almost endless! Come meet your Shrine neighbors of the Mid Atlantic Shrine Association!  A great weekend of fun and a spectacular parade on Saturday. A “must-see” for all new Nobles and families!

Our big event this year is our family picnic at the Shrine Center, free for the Nobility and families. Games for kids of all ages, prizes, food, drink, and lots of fun. I understand that Illustrious Sir Joe Hummel has acquired a dunk tank!  Warm up your pitching arm! I’ll invite the Grand Master and Past Potentates to have a seat!

As you can see, a lot is going on in and around your Shrine Center in the next few months. Come join the fun. I would encourage all Nobles to join a Unit or Club (or 2). The Units and Clubs are the backbobackbonesy Shrine organization. If you don’t see a Unit you like, start one!  Virginia Beach is a great place to see what other Shrines are doing.

Communication with Nobility is a high priority. Share this newsletter with your Shrine friends, families, and your Lodges! If you did not receive one in the mail please update your contact information in WebFez or contact the Recorder’s office at 973-992-1111.

Lastly, It is my honor to serve you, the Nobility, as your Potentate.

Illustrious Sir Robert Welch and Lady Tes.
