Article (8/1/18)

Greetings Shaddai!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July!!! Even though it was extremely hot, it is always one of the best holidays to celebrate our great country, the freedom we have and those that insure we keep that freedom!  THANK YOU to all of our active and retired military, and especially those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for protecting our freedom!

The Rodeo and Boston Butt Sale were great successes!!  A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped with both events.  We could not have done it without you!!

A lot of things are still going on at Shaddai.  By the time this article gets to everyone, we will have had Imperial Session. Be sure to check your Voice next month for all of the information that we will be bringing back from Session. There is always so much to learn and changes that are made to keep Shriners doing what we do best – taking care of children.

August will bring back our First Friday Dinner. I don’t know about you, but I have missed our dinners together. It is always so good to see everyone and just enjoy each other’s fellowship for a relaxed evening.

The Potentate’s Ball will be coming up quick on August 25.  I don’t know all of the details (the committee won’t tell me), but I know it will be a grand evening for all to enjoy.  If you would like any additional information, please be sure to read the Voice, watch our bulletin board outside on the porch or contact the office. It will be an evening you won’t want to miss!

September will bring another big fund raiser for Shaddai.  We will be doing another “Purses and Pistols Bingo”. If you missed the last one, you missed a treat. I haven’t seen that many people in our Temple in a long time. Everyone had a great time and some even went home with new “treasures”!! This is a great fund raiser for Shaddai. More details will be in the next Voice or contact me if you have any questions or would like to help.

I know this is short but need some time to get packed and ready for Imperial. I do ask for prayers for all of those that will be traveling and attending this year’s Imperial Session. May He keep us all safe so that we return back to our loved ones with renewed energy to keep taking care of our children.

In closing, I ask each and every one of you to keep our hospitals, staff, fellow nobles and their families in your daily prayers.  Most of all, our Shriner Children. They are the reason we do what we do as Shriners!

God Bless You All!
