2022 Potentate

POTENTATES MESSAGE

Dear Illustrious Sirs and Nobles,

Illustrious Sirs and Nobles, I hope this message finds you and your families faring well in these uncertain and tumultuous COVID-19 times.

It is a distinct honor which you have bestowed upon me by electing me your Potentate for 2022. The operation and function of Salaam Shriners has continued at a high level and I thank my predecessor Ill. Sir Paul Di Gaetano for his leadership and helping see Salaam through another pandemic induced year. Our Shriners Children are being served and their needs are being met in our customary and exemplary manner.

Our elected and appointed Divan members are looking forward to an exciting year. We have much work to do and so we get started with a the Clown units fundraiser dinner on February 19, 2022. Please try and support this endeavor. Next, join us for the East/West Shrine Bowl watch party on Thursday February 3, 2022 here at the Shrine! Will be holding an on site tailgate with plenty of food and snacks! I look forward to greeting as many of the nobles and their ladies in the new year. Together, we can make Salaam stronger than ever!

Yours In The Faith,

Ill. Sir Robert Welch,

Potentate 2022
