Potentate's Message

Unbelievable, here it is June, where did those 6 months go? Hopefully everyone is enjoying this year. I want to thank my wife Cathy, Virgil and Brenda Clary, Jack and Linda Hartlerode, Bob and Caroline Fry, Chuck Horn and Sandy Branham, and Brad Harmon for their work selling CD’s at the Foreigner Concert June 25th, raising monies for Shrine Hospitals.

We have a couple of projects going on around your Shrine Center this summer. We are going to complete the remodel of the pavilion kitchen and sprucing up behind the stage. Anyone interested in helping please contact me, as always, your time and contributions will be greatly appreciated.

Please mark your calendars for June 13th 6:00 pm. We will again have an evening of fun at the Railcats Baseball Stadium. Menu includes bbq pulled pork and chicken, hot dogs, baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad, chips cookies, soda, water and $1.50 beer. All tickets are $25.00 each. We were not given a special children’s price. This is a fun evening of baseball and camaraderie.

It is time to begin thinking about traveling to Imperial Session in Nashville Tenn. We have a block of 20 rooms at the Nashville Airport Double Tree Suites. If you are thinking about attending, please get in touch with me so I can get you the info you will need. I have to give up these rooms on May 31rst, if you do not make a reservation by then, I will not have any rooms available. Ask those that have previously attended sessions, it is a time of fun and fellowship with a little Shrine & Hospital education thrown into the mix.
