"Clownin’ for a smile"

    Hello Nobles and Ladies,

    2014 may be half over but the fast pace at your Shrine Temple continues. As we all take our summer vacations, our hospitals continue the wonderful services that they provide for our chil- dren and the need for our participation continues.

    July 4th is America’s Independence Day but did you know there were some other pretty interesting events that took place on July 4th as well? Of course, none will be as famous as America’s day of independence! According to Wikipedia, July 4th events date back as far back as 362BC. Not all of these events occurred in America but some are interesting none the less. When you have a few minutes to read up on them, you might be surprised.

   July 3rd, take a few minutes to think of your Imperial Representatives as they travel to Minneapolis for Imperial Session. Pray that they not only have safe travels but that they also represent your Temple to the best of their abili- ties.

   July 16th is our Stated Meeting – reminder that Dinner begins at 6:00 PM and the meeting begins at 7:30 PM. Your input is very much needed and appreciated.

   August 6th – 10th is SESA in Jacksonville, Florida. Be sure to join us for this fun and informative session. No Temple meeting on August 6th to allow our membership to attend SESA.

   August 23rd – Klassic Auto & Motorcycle Show. A great time for all.

   September 6th – 12th – Potentate’s trip to Las Vegas. Be sure to contact Ken or Glenda Apaka today to reserve your spot.

   Now through October 18th – SELL, SELL, SELL those Fall Giveaway tickets! $20.00 for 100 chances to win is a great deal. And even greater is the fact that your Club/Unit can get $2.00 for each ticket you sell. Every member was sent three tickets. That doesn’t mean that you have to stop there. Call the office today and say YES I want more to sell.

   Thanks from the bottom of my heart for all that each and every one of you do every day for the Children!

   Nobles, Lady Pam has a game for all to play. It’s “Find the Potentate’s Upside-Down Fez”.

    Potentate James has lost his Fez. It is hiding somewhere in this issue of the Mystic Messenger. Be the first person to email (first choice) or call (second choice) the Temple Office with the correct location and to claim your prize!

God Bless,

James L. Piper

Al Sihah Shriners

     Nobles ALL,
        Were you able to visit the Shriners Hospital for Children's Trailer and Al Sihah's very own David Ragan Race Car displayed at the Central City Park for Cherry Blossom Week? Hundreds visited our location and were amazed as to what Shriner's actually do for the children. Many Nobles gave of their time to assist Billy Ray Phillips, P.P., in manning our displays for ten (10) days. To all these Nobles let us all give them a big "Job Well Done!" Illus Sir Billy Ray Phillips, P.P. will not be stopping here. Illus Sir Billy will be transporting the David Ragan Race Car to numerous events and parades. If you would like to assist, please contact Illus Sir Billy Ray Phillips, P.P. And, remember to bring your Fez.

See YOU there.
