Hello, Nobles and Ladies.
This shall be my first communique to you for the year 2017.
For those of you who were unable to attend the Nile’s Installation on Saturday, January 7th, 2017, I am attaching my address to those assembled:
Potentate’s Installation Message
Illustrious Sirs, Members of the Divan, Nobles, Ladies and guests. My theme for the year is:
“Inspired by our history, embracing our future”
This year will mark the one hundred and tenth installation since our charter and I am proud of our heritage. I have been inspired by our long history, yet at the same time we must look to the future of the Nile Shrine Center and ensure that it exists for another one hundred and ten years. We have had our ups and downs, and because of two Nobles, Illustrious Sir Jim Hutchins and Noble Steve Kiley, our finances and business plan have been turned around and they are now moving in a positive direction. Also, under the keen eye of Noble Rick Sproul, who has assisted in making those tough decisions. Thank you, Brother Nobles. Your love and concern for our Shrine Center is greatly appreciated.
