Pote's Notes - April/May 2017

Dear Nobles and Ladies:

By the time you receive this communique in the mail, March will have come and gone. Let me give you a little recap of the happenings around your Nile Shrine Center. In the first weekend of February, the Oriental Band successfully put on an outstanding Crab Feed to a “sold-out” venue with everyone having delicious crab and great fellowship with music performed by the Arlington High School Jazz Band. 

The following Saturday evening, we had the Potentate and First Lady’s Valentine’s Ball with appetizers furnished by the ladies, a fabulous dinner of steak and lobster, which was over the top, thanks to Executive Chef Daniel Green, wine on the table and music to dance and listen to by Mark Stern. Everyone in attendance had an enjoyable time with nothing but positive comments to share.  If you weren’t there, you missed a special evening.

Another successful year for the Haunted House – Wow they were scary! My thanks go out to Noble Jody Bossert and all the staff. Assistant Rabban Larry Bronner and Lady Annie did a great job of getting all of their gang together to work the booth, parking and security. Director’s staff worked hard in their booth as always and put out some good eats.

Pote's Notes - Oct/Nov 2016

Our Oriental Band took first place at PNSA in Billings, MT! I am so proud of the Oriental Band, they were ready willing and able to WIN. Way to go all of you. We had a great time in Billings, MT for the PNSA 2016. A big thanks to all the Al Bedoo Shriners that worked hard on getting it done. Lady Denise and I sure enjoyed being there with our Divan and Aides. It will be our turn to host PNSA, July 26th-29th. Executive Aide Scott Wells and Lady Ann have done a wonderful job of getting us in the right direction. Please call Scotty and Ann if you want to volunteer to help.
