Howdy Nobles and Ladies,
I hope you all have an enjoyable and safe Memorial Day Weekend. A tip of the fez to the Shaddai Clowns! They competed during Dixie Shrine Association last month and did very well.
Doug Bastendorf took first place “in character” category and second place “Auguste” category. James Sovell took first place “Auguste” category, second place in both “Single Balloon” and “Individual Skit” categories and third place ‘Senior Division” category. They jointly won first place in both the “2-man skit and Unit Skit” categories. Well Done!!
Last month we got the sad news that Imperial Sir Gene Bracewell had been taken by the black camel. He was not only an associate member of Shaddai but signed Shaddai’s charter during his year as Imperial Potentate. He was full of life, a jokester and always had time for any Noble. He will be missed! Please keep Lady Katharyn and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
Don’t to forget about the Fall Ceremonial this October. Keep on looking for new Nobles. Remember, we are all on the membership committee, especially the recruitment side! If you have someone you think would make a great Shriner then use the Web fez referral system, https:// webfez.shrinenet.org/referral, to get their journey started.
God Bless the Shrine,
God Bless our Troops
and God Bless America!
