About Our Shrine

2024 Potentate

POTENTATES MESSAGE

Thank you Nobles for having faith in me and electing me as Potentate.
I will do my best to fulfill your expectations. Congratulations and thank you Ill.
Sir Katzenstein for a great year! We are planning several exciting events for the coming year. These activities will be successful if everyone contributes in some way. I am looking forward to working with everyone to achieve our goals.

On February 1st we had a watch party for the East/West Shrine football
game at the temple. The Nobles, Ladies, family, and friends of the fez enjoyed
games, prizes, giveaways, and of course an evening of fabulous food, fun,
and fellowship!

Future events are being planned for the coming year. Some activities are: a
trip to a professional baseball game, a family picnic, a family and friends
miniature golf tournament, and the Potentate’s Ball on October 12, 2024. The
success of these events hinges on the Nobles’ support and enthusiasm.
If you have any other ideas for a great event please let any Divan member
know. We are open to any suggestions that will bring us to our ultimate goal:
Family and Fun!

Yours in the Faith,

Illustrious Sir Thomas Murphy
