Potentate’s Message

N

obles I would like to thank each and every Unit and Club, their members and ladies and invited guest that supported the Potentate’s Ball this year. Marsha and I hope everyone enjoyed their Temples Ball. We also wish to thank all of the people who worked behind the scenes. The Ball would not have been possible without them. We talk about membership and say what can one do? Thnk about why you joined the Masonic Lodge. These were men we looked up to and respected. They were leaders in the community, businesses, church and men you could depend on. Great Privileges attained by a small

step. Great advantages came with membership. Wearing the square and compass along with having a Masonic Home to retire to if needed. As a Mason some branched off to become Shriners and they found fun and fellowship in Units and Clubs that allowed them to use their talents in various ways. Time spent & dues paid go toward financing our 22 Hospitals, that are there to make a difference in the life of a child by giving the best possible care. Our Hospitals also give relief to the parents of these children who have the burden, both financial and mental, for the care of the their child. Shriners do Measure Up by

he Temple Rodeo is approaching fast and the Rodeo Committee, working with Noble Randy Murphy and his committees is again trying to make this event a major Temple fundraiser. So Nobles send the Rodeo tickets back with $30.00 or more or keep the tickets and send the money in to make this function grow. Noble don‘t forget your dues. A reminder has been mailed out. We have approximately 208 Nobles who haven’t paid their dues for 2013 and 67 that are in arrears for 2013 & 2012. The temple has to pay the per capita and hospital assessment regardless for Nobles who are on the rolls as of January 1st each year. Also Nobles we have approximately 120 life members who don‘t pay anything. Take a look at your mail and if you haven‘t paid your dues, please do so. Also, remember, we have to have a temple before we can support our charity—the Shriner‘s Hospitals for Children.

Come on out and support your Temple and enjoy the festivities. If you are a new Noble or a Noble who doesn‘t belong to a Unit or Club, come on out and let me (The Recorder) know and I‘ll introduce you to the Nobility. The Divan will make you feel at home and you‘ll want to come back to all the temple functions. If anyone would like to join a Unit or Club, call me (420-4510) and I‘ll break the ice for you plus give you all the details. Nobles your Temple is now accepting credit cards. You can pay your dues, make donations, buy Rodeo tickets. If you have any questions call Bill or Anne at the office 420-4510. To pay your dues, make a donation or buy tickets please go to our website www.khediveshrine.org and click the Payment Center link. In closing don‘t forget the Business Meetings May 23,

he past five months sure have been great! I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting all the Nobles at the Official Visits as well as visiting the individual Units and Clubs. I, along with the other members of the Divan, have attended the Mid-winter SASA meeting in Greensboro, NC as well as the Fall MASA meeting in Herndon, VA. I have also attended the Potentate’s Balls at ACCA, KAZIM and KENA. We are on the go and representing our Shrine Center. Nobles, it is that time of year again, and the Rodeo is fast approaching. We have already had our first planning meeting and are off to a great start. Please mark your calendar for June 14th and 15th. June 14th is Military Appreciation Night. Please come out and show a special “thanks” to the men and women who protect us each and every day and allow us to do the things we do. June 15th is Blue Lodge Night. We invite all Master Masons, who are not currently

Shriners, to come out and see what the Shrine is all about. If you know a Brother that would like to come, please get in touch with Bill Gray in the Shrine Center office. He will assist with getting them their tickets at a reduced price. We need everyone’s support in order to make this a success. The Rodeo Daddy tickets have already been sent out. I ask you to please purchase them and come out and support OUR Shrine Center at the Rodeo. If you are unable to attend, I ask you to please purchase the tickets and send a check, as well as the tickets themselves, to the Shrine Center. We will then distribute these tickets to our patients and their families so that they can come and enjoy themselves. To make this a big success, Noble Joe Ramsey, Noble Kenny Askew and I need support from ALL the Units and Clubs. Last year was one of the best years that we have had with the Rodeo, thanks to your overwhelming support. I hope

RANDY MURPHY this year is just as successful. Once again, PLEASE come out and show your support. If I can assist any of you in any way, please do not hesitate to call. Always remember…“MEASURE UP FOR KIDS”. Yours In The Faith, Randy Murphy - Chief Rabban Home: 757-410-8392 Cell: 757-438-4746 Email: randymurphy@cox.net

irst of all, I need to thank each of you for your calls, cards, thoughts and prayers during my recent round of procedures. Hopefully, all of that is behind me. In March, Pat and I represented Khedive at the Assistant Rabban Seminar in Tampa. In addition to instruction and suggestions of what’s to come as Chief Rabban and Potentate, we were treated to some wonderful, inspirational messages. The Imperial Officers and their Ladies from the education team are enthusiastic and totally committed to promoting the work of the Shrine. The Imperial website – www. shrineinternational.org – is a wealth of information. It is easy to access and navigate. The Shriners Village link is particularly interesting and can be accessed with your specific shrine number found on your dues card. The people in Tampa do a great job keeping the website up to date with happenings at our hospitals and events being planned.

Check it out – you’ll be glad you did! Our membership drive is progressing. We are receiving one or two petitions as we visit our Shrine Clubs and Units. Our first membership meeting was a great success with a lot of participation. Keep up the great work!! The Divan held a tele-conference with Randy Rudge from the membership team in Tampa to help explain the membership tracking system within Shriners Village. Looks like Khedive is moving in the right direction as far as technology! We still have a long way to go! We should all give a big thank you to Anne Harriman in our front office for her outstanding work with our Khedive website. In our travels, we have received so many compliments on our website – it’s easy to navigate – it has so many useful links – it has all the current activities and details on the home page. Thank you, Anne! If you and/or your lady want

ELWOOD PASCHAL to become more involved in the activities at Khedive, or if you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to call me or any Divan member. We welcome your input! We need everyone’s participation to meet our goals and make this a great year. We are Khedive – we can do it!!

reetings Nobles. Well, we are well into the year and it has been very busy, but great fun. Thanks for all of the hospitality extended on our journeys with Ill Sir Rick’s official visits. The St. Patrick’s Day parade was great fun even though just a little wet. Thanks to Ill Sir Bill Kern and Lady Carol for another great pre-parade breakfast. Also, we have attended SASA and MASA Spring meetings. I know the leadership there will make the conventions in September a huge success. In July, the Divan will travel to Indianapolis, Indiana for Imperial

Session. Stay tuned for an update on our trip. Nobles, please remember that “MEMBERSHIP” is our goal this year. If you know of a worthy Master Mason, talk with him about the Shrine. Another reminder is our Rodeo on June 14 & 15. This is a Temple Fund Raiser!!! Please support this and all other Units & Clubs Fund raisers. If I or any member of the Divan can be of assistance to any of you, just remember we are just a phone call away. Stay safe and enjoy this Spring. Yours in the Faith, Woody Brown - High Priest & Prophet

reetings, Nobles. The first four months of 2013 have been very busy and learning the ropes as a member of your Khedive Divan is proving to be a tedious task. After an unexpected personal trip to Maine in January, regular business resumed and I accompanied the Potentate on the remainder of his official visits to the Shrine Clubs. In addition to several other visits to the Clubs and various fundraisers, Lady Val and I attended the Four Temples Meeting in Charlottesville, Khedive, Kazim, Kena and Acca Pote’s Balls, MASA Spring Meeting, and the Oriental Guide Leadership Seminar in Tampa. The latter two deserve some further mention. Most Worshipful Lewis K. Campbell spoke at MASA with a clear message that the Blue Lodges, Scottish Rite, York Rite, Shrine and other Masonic bodies should live in harmony. He stressed that we are Masons first, but everyone has to find their niche in the various Masonic bodies. He further stated that all Masons have to realize that there is no single body that is “right” for everybody, and each of us must learn to respect the work done by the members of each body. At the OG Leadership Seminar we learned that membership is the Shrine’s #1 problem, and that in order to fix our problem, we must first help the Blue Lodges fix the same problem. At the MASA Spring Meeting, Imperial Sir Gary

Bergenske, Imperial Oriental Guide, discussed the same issue. He said that the Fraternal Strategic Planning Committee researched the membership issues in several nonMasonic fraternal organizations, including the Lions, Rotary, Moose, etc., and found that membership is actually growing in those organizations. He stated in essence that we can’t afford to kid ourselves any longer by using the excuse that “every fraternal organization has the same problem” because they don’t. To help reverse the downward spiral in the Shrine, we need a grassroots effort at the Units and Clubs level to increase our presence in the Blue Lodges and to seek out and mentor those who would find their niche in the Shrine. Overall, those two speeches and what we learned in Tampa dovetailed together very well. We need new members in the Shrine and we only have one source – the Blue Lodges. To that end, if we don’t maintain a presence and participate in the Blue Lodges and acknowledge that we are Masons first, the anti-Shrine sentiment that pervades some of those Lodges will continue. SO…. I challenge each Club and each Unit to take stock of what Blue Lodges their members belong to. During the “casual season”, make an effort to visit each of those Lodges as a Unit or Club. Wear your Unit parade uniforms or your Unit/Club polo shirts, let the Worshipful Master

Nobles, If you know any member who hasn't paid his dues for 2013 talk to him about paying now.

JOHN HOWE

We need a grassroots effort at the Units and Clubs level to increase our presence in the Blue Lodges and to seek out and mentor those who would find their niche in the Shrine.

know that you are visiting as a group, and ask him to introduce your Club/ Unit head during introductions. Take the opportunity to say a few words in Lodge about upcoming Shrine events, parades, etc. Show the Lodge that we haven’t forgotten that we are Masons first, and let them in on the fun that we have and the work that we do as Shriners. I’ll look forward to discussing your experience with each of the Club and Unit heads as I make the rounds, and certainly look forward to seeing each of you around the Temple. Yours in the Faith, John Howe - Oriental Guide

ear Nobles, having served as your representative on the Philadelphia Board of Governor’s for three meetings I am pleased to report I have been appointed to the following committees: CREDENTIALS, responsible for reviewing and endorsing all documentation for those being hired and the renewal of current employees; HUMAN RELATIONS, which reviews all matters relative to the use and application of staff personnel; and TEMPLE RELATIONS, charged with on-going relationships with patients and Temples in keeping with HIPPA the

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Also, it is useful for us to be reminded of some general information concerning our hospitals: Shriners Hospitals have been providing care for children for the past 91 years without regard to the family’s ability to pay; 90 cents of every dollar goes directly to pediatric patient care; 100% of all income raised for children’s care goes to that purpose; and today our surgeons are on the “Top Doctors List” for 2013. Last year, the Philadelphia Hospital’s

Hospital Report

Greenville Hospital By Jody R. Dudley

H

ello Nobles and Families. Greetings from Greenville SC. All is well! We just had our annual board meeting and we got to meet a lot of the Temples Divans and families. It was a two day event with trolley tours downtown and a visit to Bob Jones University to see their art collection. It was unbelievable. We had hospitals tours, dinner and hospital check presentations. We have the new EOS x-ray machine covered. We are working under budget and getting crowded with patients (which is good). There is a hint of maybe hiring more staff. Hopefully next year we can get some Nobles and Divan from Khedive there! You folks are missing some

good fellowship and fun! The new patient applications are out. They are a little different but make sense. Also we are a step closer to assisting the Wounded Warrior Project Plus we have worked out a plan with Operation Smile (right here in Norfolk). Some of their children will become Shriners Kids. (thats good news folks). Also Acca Temple (Richmond) has worked with one of their local hospitals to have a clinic to assist with Greenville and Philly patients. For some of the lighter medical needs. Hopefully we can do the same in the near future. Thats about all from Greenville at this time.

Keep those in need in your thoughts and prayers! REMEMBER OUR OBLIGATION OUR CHILDREN! If I can be of any help to you folks, let me know. Thanks for letting me represent you! Jody R Dudley Board Of Governors SHC-GRN (The number one hospital)

hen transporting our children, I expect our drivers to treat the parents and children with a measure of respect. Also, I expect the parents and children to treat our drivers with the same respect. Unfortunately, recently this did not happen. One of our parents lost control during a trip. That parent is now on probation for us to provide transportation. Our job of transporting children to and from their appointments is a privilege, not a right. While the treatment of our children is paramount, I’ll do my best not to allow their parents to take advantage of us. So far this year we have made 26 van trips and 12 self-drive trips. Due to the weather this winter, we’ve had to make more commercial flights to Cincinnati than we normally do. At this writing, we’ve had 6 commercial air trips versus our normal 1 or 2. A new procedure has been

implemented for new patients. They no longer have to fill out a two page form. We give them a phone number to the hospital and everything is done over the phone, including scheduling their first appointment. During their phone interview, they are asked if they want transportation. In order for us to receive any information about that family, they must answer yes to that question. We always tell prospective new patients to always answer yes to that question, whether or not they want to use our transportation or not. We ask them to call us back after their call to the hospital so we can get their information for our records. Otherwise, besides not being able to assist them with transportation, we won’t be able to send them an invitation to any of our special events. Noble Jody Dudley and I met

with representatives from Operation Smile to discuss the possibility of us providing follow-up treatment for their Cleft Lip and Palate patients. They were very enthusiastic about a partnership between our organizations. They have also spoken with a representative from our Cincinnati Burn Unit. Several of our medical personnel have made trips with Operation Smile. Now it is up to our corporate representatives to finalize the deal. The wife of one of our Tidewater Shrine Club Nobles invited a representative from Cincinnati to speak to medical personnel at Riverside Walter Reed Hospital in Gloucester. Ms D. Harrell, RN, from our Cincinnati Burn Unit gave an excellent talk about the services they provide. It gave us the opportunity to show who we are and what we do. Hopefully we’ll pick up a couple of patients from this event. Thank you Tidewater Shrine Club for the support you provided during this presentation. Isn’t it great to be a “Khedive” Shriner!

Khedive Shriners

Annual Oyster Bowl By Chairman Terry Riley

T

he 64th Annual Khedive Shrine Oyster Bowl is 5 months away, the Old Dominion University Monarchs will be playing host to University of Albany Great Danes @ Foreman Field, September 28, 2013. This will be Albany’s first trip to Foreman Field as well as their first appearance in the Oyster Bowl. This year’s game should be just as exciting as last years as ODU is in the last stages of transitioning to Conference USA. We are currently planning this year’s activities surrounding the Oyster Bowl which includes an Oyster Roast on September 12th; once again we will be holding the Oyster Roast from 5-8 pm as a fund raiser to support the Oyster Bowl. Come out and enjoy the fun and fellowship as we will have all you can eat and drink, oysters, fry’s, bake beans, hush puppies, etc. the

Homecoming Parade this year is scheduled for , October 5th, 2:00 PM. I’d like to see all the Units come out once again and participate. After the Parade, we can tailgate, and for those of you who have tickets, we can watch ODU take on the Liberty University Nobles, this year we have 500 tickets available for our Nobilities and friends at the low price of $25. Information will be sent out by August 1 on how to obtain tickets to this historic event. Nobles we still need to sell ad’s… This year as an extra incentive, any Unit , Club or noble that sells a new ad, will receive 10% back, Units and Club’s may want to use this as a fundraiser, so if you know of someone who would like to take an ad out in this year’s souvenir program, sign them up and receive cash back. We still need to get a team together to cook Oyster’s, Game Day inside the stadium like we did last year. So let me know if you can help game day, selling programs, cooking oysters, help setting up the tailgate area and show the many fans what the Shriner’s are all about. Thanks You and May God Bless you and your Family.

Annual Seafood Fest By Chairman Joe Ramsey

Y

es it is true the Khedive Seafood Feast has been rescheduled for October 19th, 2013. Unfortunately we had inadvertently scheduled it for August 29 which is Labor Day weekend. Everyone was crying foul so we changed it. Which only brought on more scheduling problems as far as what date was open. You see with every parade being a Temple function and every other weekend rented to someone outside the Temple then you throw in the Units having their functions it is very hard to find a suitable date. Thankfully the Hillbillies agree to move their Chicken Fest to another weekend, which we really appreciate, and we landed on the 19th. Which I later found out was a special weekend for the “Q”. Sorry guys. A large portion of our workers are members of the “Q” so we will need some guys to step up and fill the voids. There was also an issue with the band so this year “The Janitors” a group from Virginia Beach will be entertaining us. Nobles hopefully this date change proves to be a good thing and with your help we can increase our numbers and profits. I look forward to working with everyone and I will keep you informed on any future news. Also at the time we are looking for a new date for the Family Picnic. Fraternally, Joe Ramsey

Events Khedive Shriners

Annual Golf Classic By Chairman Johnnie Chandler

I

t is time to tee it up for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Golf Classic. Khedive Temple is having its 24th Annual Golf Classic on Thursday, September 26, 2013 at the Suffolk Golf Course. Over the past 24 years, Wilson Widgeon has been the Golf Classic Chairman and now he is stepping down. The Nobles of Khedive want to thank Wilson for his dedication and hard work over the years. The Illustrious Sir, Richard G. Underdown has appointed me as the Golf Classic Chairman. He also appointed Woody Brown as the Secretary/Treasurer and reappointed last year’s committee members. Robert Collins is the Co-Chairman of the Golf Classic. We’ve had two meetings (FEB/ MAR) so far and we have selected a golf course, a caterer, gotten Hoffman Beverage on-board, prepared and given out letters and sponsorship packages for levels of donation. Plus, we want to thank the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority for helping us with the Golf Classic again this year. We have reduced the entry fee to play in this year’s Golf Classic for Single Players to $100 or $400 per Team (4 players); Hole Sponsors are $100 and Official Sponsors are $500 - $5,000. This year we are planning for the maximum 36 Teams. Please register early. The 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children and Khedive’s Transportation Fund are 501 (c) (3) Nonprofit Organizations and relies on the generosity of donors. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent by law. Fiftyone percent (51%) of the money raised goes to support the 22

Shriners Hospitals and (49%) stays here to support Khedive Temple’s Transportation Fund. Last year (2012) Khedive Temple’s Transportation Unit made 137 trips transporting 148 local patients and parents/guardians to and from the Hospitals. This includes ten trips made by our Air-wing or commercial air flights, for a total cost of $138,000.

“Over the past 24 years, Wilson Widgeon has been the Golf Classic Chairman and now he is stepping down. The Nobles of Khedive want to thank Wilson for his dedication and hard work over the years.”

ooking at the calender, it appears we have a very busy quarter. Hope everyone is looking forward to the events coming up. To recap some of the events, in spite of inclement weather we were able to step off on time for the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. This event seems to be getting bigger each year. Many thanks to our Past Potentate, Bill Kerns, for providing a delicious breakfast for the Nobles prior to the Parade. I hope everyone who attended SASA in Greenboro,N.C. and the MASA in Herdon, VA. enjoyed themselves. The Sweetheart Dance and the Potentate’s Ball was enjoyed by all who attended. The Chesapeake Shrine Club Oyster Roast was a big success. It is growing each year. The crowd was busting at the seams. Captain Jack Ryals of the Arab Patrol would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the Patrol who helped serve the food at the Chesapeake Oyster Roast. Speaking of Fund Raisers, the Arab Patrol had a Spaghetti Dinner

obles, we are off to another great start this year. The St Patrick’s Parade was great, the weather was really nice…. after the rain and we had a good turnout of members along with a large crowd on the street. We are looking forward to the upcoming Parades for a chance to get our Cars on the street and help bring attention to our Temple and Shriners Hospitals. Our annual Ladies night was held in March this year at Surf Rider West restaurant in Virginia Beach. A nice time had by all, food was great, along with the service.

reetings Nobles! 2013 is turning out to be another great year for the Khedive Band. We’ve held 2 paper drives at Pembroke Mall already with another 5 scheduled throughout the year. The Concert Band has had some bad luck with the parades but we’re hoping our challenges are behind us and we’ll make the rest of the parades. The Dixieland band has been rehearsing and will be playing at the Spring Open House so be sure to stop by and have a listen. The Khedive Notables played at the Band’s Annual Spring Swing Dinner & Dance Fundraiser and everyone had a wonderful time. The Notables are in demand this year and we’re scheduled to

play at Westminster Canterbury’s Dance on Friday May 24th at 7 pm, the main Stage of the Strawberry Festival on Saturday May 25th at 8:30 am, and also at Ocean View’s Big Bands on the Bay series on Sunday August 4th at 7 pm. If you haven’t heard the Dance Band then come on out to one of our events and see what you’ve been missing. I’ve been told by many that the Dance Band is just plain awesome. Our bands would love to play for any occasion or activity. Just give me a call at 831-1635 or email me at jeffscottdavis@hottmail.com and I’ll strike up the band for you! The band is growing again! Our latest addition to Khedive Notables Dance Band is our new male vocalist, Lee Parilla. Lee is a member of the

Scooter Patrol, but has decided to also share his musical talents with the Dance Band. It’s exciting to see the band growing. We’re coming up on the Khedive Band’s 100th anniversary in 2015 so if you play a musical instrument or have played one in the past, come out out to a rehearsal and join in the fun. We’d love to have you join us. Sincerely, Jeff Davis Director, Khedive Band

ince we unfortunately missed the first quarter HiNoble I have some catching up to do. Congratulations go out to Past Director Ray Gates on a good year in 2012 and best of luck to newly installed Director Ed “Two Dollars” Clifton for 2013. Our first parade of the year was the St Patrick’s Day parade and we had a decent showing of Clowns participating. “BoBo” was unfortunately under the weather so that left the “IYQ” stickers in the capable hands of Ray and myself and we handled the duty with honor and expertise. It was good to see Jerry Bell back on the street with us. Hopefully he will make it a habit. Nobles we are always looking for new faces. So if you want to cast away your inhibitions and join us please stop by our unit room on the third Tuesday of the month around 7:00 or just give one of us a call. We will be glad to have you and ready and willing to teach you the art of applying make-up and dressing out.

H

oly Mackerel Andy. Were you at the Oyster Roast? Well over 3000 people were. This function has to go down as one of the largest Shrine function in history and I am going back all the way to the Circus in Virginia Beach. With the city of Chesapeake promoting it and the extra television time we put in and 97.3 on Facebook we nailed it. All I can say is great job to all the guys and gals who worked their butts off to make it a success. Throw in an excellent steak dinner at the workers party and it was epic. On with the whirlwind tour ten Past Presidents and the current President converged on Nags Head to be a part of and support PP Alan Cannon`s installation as Chief of the SASA Provost Guard. It was a weekend full of food, fun, fellowship and about ten quarts of smooth apple-pie. Congratulations Alan we are here for you. I am not sure if this will be out in time but May is our Ladies Night with Joe Maniscalco and his steel drums entertaining us. I know, I know you wanted to see the guy stick a screwdriver up his nose but he has a head cold and cannot come. Next stop is June where we are doing double duty. It has been designated Units and Clubs night as well as “Bring a friend night”. So we cordially invite all Club Presidents and Unit Heads to come out a let us know what is happening in your neck of the building. Regarding “Bring a friend“ if you know anyone who is interested in becoming a Shriner or a Mason for that matter bring him out and let`s show him around. It may be just the boost he needs to take the plunge. July is Father/Son/Daughter night please round up all

the youngsters and oldsters in you neighborhood and come on out. Jonathan Austin and his bag of tricks will be entertaining the crowds. We are going back to the old days with good food and good entertainment. I hope to see you there. August is our annual Ladies Night and Crab Feast which is always well received. As you can see there is always something happening the Club and I could go on forever but my single digit pecking finger is cramping so I had better close. Remember your Lodge needs Masons and your Temple needs candidates. Chesapeake Shrine Club meets third Monday of the month, hors d`oeuvres Khedive Temple start at 6:00 and the dinner is at 7:00.

Beach Bum Brothers By Captain Richard Rawls

T

he Beach Bum Brothers Unit, the only Peninsula based Unit, are those Nobles seen wearing bright orange tropical shirts, having fun and riding Segways are having a great 2013. Our main goal is to have fun, spread the word about our Shrine Hospitals and to interact with folks along the parade routes. We continue to receive very positive comments from folks that see us riding our Segways in parades and we look forward to more opportunities to be seen as Shriners. As a small unit, the Beach Bum Brothers are doing their part to support the Transportation Fund of the Khedive Shrine Center. We are not big enough to sponsor any big functions as many other units do, but we are working hard for the Shriner children. We contribute as much as we can each year by selling World Famous Candy and Masonic Hats. We also contribute what we can out of our own pockets, which truly makes you feel good as a Shriner that you are able to help those that need our help. The Beach Bum Brothers Unit is still a small unit and we are always looking for new Nobles to be a part of our unit. The first questions we are always asked is: Are Segways hard to ride and how much do they cost? If you have the ability to simply stand, hold your balance and not fall over, you can ride a Segway. The Segway is equipped with a computer which is probably smarter than most riders. It figures you out and helps keep you safe. Of course, accidents can happen, but most times the accident occurs because the rider is attempting to do something that the Segway is not designed to handle. This applies to bicycles, motorcycles and scooters…do something that you shouldn’t do and expect to have an

accident. The Nobles that ride the Segways with the Beach Bum Brothers Unit pride themselves as being safe riders. The second questions deals with how much do the Segways cost. The cost, like most everything else we buy, has gone up over the years. Currently, they cost approximately $7400.00 depending on what accessories you decide you want. One Noble mentioned that this was cheaper than a motorcycle but it is still a costly “toy”. Bottom line for us…we enjoy riding them so much that we feel the cost is well worth it. We also feel that Segways give us and the Khedive Shrine Center another opportunity for Nobles to be part of a unique unit. If you would like more information about the Beach Bum Brothers Unit or about a Segway, please feel free to contact us. Contact Noble Richard Rawls, Captain, at 757630-7774 for more information. A free Segway ride can also be arranged! Having Fun….Helping Children…..being the best Master Masons we can be, that’s us, the Beach Bum Brothers Unit Noble Captain J.

s Temple Director I was just briefed on 18 April 2013 by Illustrious Sir Richard Underdown on his plans and schedules for our Spring Ceremonial, which will be on 1 June 2013 at the Khedive Shrine Center. As per instructions from the Imperial Potentate, it will be a “Non Traditional” Ceremonial, with the Ritualistic Divan providing the ritual for the First and Third Sections, there will not be a Second Section. Now some passing thoughts from a old Director Staff Director on all this “Political Correctness and New Order”. From the Ritual Of The Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of The Mystic Shrine, it states “That the Shrine is a playground for Masons. It is devoted to pure, clean fun-the funnier the better. We never forget, however that we are Masons”. Now is a good time for me to thank the members of Khedives Directors Staff for all of their years of service. Clayton Cartwright 1973, Joe Hagerman 2006, Jim Kiphart 2001, Ray Martin 2001, Robert Miles 1996, Pete Murden 2001, Herb Myers 2010, Doug Norris 2008, Watt Perley 1961, Donald Respess 1989, Al Thereault 1983 and Jim Wagner 2008. I would like to thank these Nobles for their help in 438 Ceremonials in the old traditional way. Moving forward I hope with these 219 years of service each will continue to help in our new way of conducting the Ceremonials.

reeting Nobles, your Khedive Golf Club’s 2013 season officially got underway on March 20th at Red Wing Golf Course in Virginia Beach. President Parker McDaniel, Jr. introduced dignitaries and Club Chaplain Dudley Myers gave the opening prayer. The photo above shows Secretary Woody Brown, Chaplain Dudley Myers, President Parker McDaniel and Team Scheduler Johnnie Chandler. After a brief delay due to the weather, more than 120 avid golfers took to the course. It was a wet chilly start but before we finished the clouds parted and the sun appeared. We hope this season will be enjoyed by all Shrine members and their guests and that it will be a profitable year. Last year we were able to contribute $7,000 to the Transportation Fund to help defray costs for families and children. Ill Sir Rick has adopted the theme “Measure Up For Kids” for this year. Your Golf Club understands the importance of distance and measurements as we strive to hit fairways and calculate the distance to the center of the green. Your Golf Club endeavors to shoot good scores, enjoy fraternal fellowship, and stay active. Nobles, in these unstable economic times we all need to step up to help a needy child and family during their hardship. Check our website at www.khediveshrine.org/home/ golf_shrineclub for our current schedule and join us if you can. We’re growing strong so we can “Measure Up for Kids”. Yours in the Faith, Noble Jerry P. Edwards Vice President

H

ello Fire Brigade! Well, 2013 is moving right along. We hit the ground running with the first big parade of the year, the annual OV St. Patty’s Day Parade and had a great turn out. The rain couldn’t stop us! We also really enjoyed the Shrine Night with the Norfolk Admirals. We need to stay motivated and keep the momentum going. The fire truck is running strong and we have our go-cart personalized! Lot’s going on so get out there! On an inspirational note, I’d like to mention an article named “Editorial Without Words” at http:// khediveshrine.org/home/editorial-without-words/, the history of the photo that became the iconic figure of a Shriner carrying the child and crutch. The moment was spontaneous and the photographer had so many technical problems that he could only snap one picture. Who would have guessed that just one Noble carrying a child would result in a timeless photograph that has inspired millions? To the late Noble Albert Lanier Hartman, thank you for illustrating the true measure of a Noble and reminding us to maintain our compassion and character even when we think no one is watching. Well done Brother. Let us always live by his example.

Nobles, be sure to stay abreast to our events by reading the emails Bob Travis sends you, checking the Khedive web page and our Facebook page. We are always looking for event pictures too so forward those along! Upcoming Shrine events, to name a few. We have… • Pungo Strawberry Festival: Saturday, May 25th • Spring Ceremonial: Saturday, June 1st • Khedive Annual Rodeo: Saturday, June 15th We are always looking to build our ranks. If you

would like to ride with the best unit around, drop by before one of our monthly meetings or give us a call. We meet the second Tuesday of every month at the Khedive Shrine Center (Rm#7) at 7pm. Fellowship and dinner is served promptly at 6:15. If you haven’t checked out our Facebook page, come on over and “friend” us. Search for us as http://www.facebook.com/khedive.firebrigade.

reetings from the shack Nobles. Well, we sure had one heck of a busy winter.After a lot of long hours of working on the Rocky Top 7-11, we were able to change out the engine and transmission. Also, we had some really good work weekends . We moved lots of things around upstairs and cleaned up the shack. The Hillbilly Band played for the Legion of Honor barbecue and from what I understand our very own Noble Duke couldn’t help but get out there and cut a rug! We were happy to welcome Illustrious Sir Rick and the Divan for the official visit in February. It was a wonderful time and the food was delicious. Thanks to Lady Sue and Illustrious Shep for the awesome spaghetti. Noble Joe Thornton P.D. presented Noble Uncle Ed Dowell with a plaque to recognize a donation to the Khedive Transportaion Fund in his son’s memory. Our thoughts and prayers are with our Uncle Ed and Lady Shirley. As usual, the 46th annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in Ocean View was spectacular! The weather was a little shaky, but right before the parade started, the weather broke and it was darn right gorgeous outside! The crowd was large and lively. The Clubhouse was beautifully decorated. Thank you to all the Ladys and Nobles that spent so much time putting together all of the dishes, deserts, and decorations and for setting up the bar. Also, thank you to Illustrious Don Meyer and Noble Chris Jeager for preparing the corned beef and cabbage. A special thanks to Noble David Swoope for his very generous donation of a massive 12 burner propane grilling station at our regular March meeting. Not only did he provide the grill, but he also cooked a very nice meal for all the Nobles. Many Hillbillies were present to help the Chesapeake Shrine Club both as helpers and guests with their 36th annual Oyster Roast. It was an absolutely beautiful day and thousands of people showed up for what was one heck of a good time! It looks like spring has somewhat sprung and we are looking forward to all the upcoming events and parades. Unfortunately, we will not be participating in the Daffodil Parade this year, but will be ready for the NATO parade in downtown Norfolk. See Y’all round the shack.

T

he Drum & Bugle Corps has once again started off the first quarter of 2013 with a Big Bang. The Drum Corps had one of the best showings ever @ this year’s 46th running of the Ocean View’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. All members in attendance had a great time!!!! Easter weekend found the Drum Corps once again @ Sam’s Club for our Annual Paper Drive. What a pleasure it was meeting so many people that the Shriners have touched throughout their lives. Our Annual Fish Fry was a great success once again under the direction of Frank Grice. There was plenty of good food, drinks, entertainment and door prizes. I’d like to send out a special thanks to the Motor Corps for all their help. Heading into May, the Drum Corps will be pulling double duty on May 18th, with the Holland Parade in the morning and working with Festevents for their 11th Annual Beer Festival @ Town Point Park. Last year was so much fun; I look forward to the same this year. If any nobles would like to come out and help us with this event please let Joe Harris out Assistance Director or myself know ASAP so we can put you on the list. Please keep our sick and distressed in your thoughts and prayers and our Shriner Children as well. Also, never forget our military personal serving in harm’s way all over the world. We would like to invite all nobles to come out and join the Drum Corps on Mondays, 7:00 PM. May God bless you and your family during this upcoming year! We are “Beat of Khedive”.

he first quarter is complete under the leadership of Illustrious Rick Underdown and his Divan with great success and look forward to continued success for the remainder of the year. Provost participated in the Saint Patrick Day Parade with all of the glitz and glamour of a local Mardi Gras. A great time was had by all from breakfast to the refreshment tent at the end. The Spring BBQ fund raiser was a great success thanks to all of the Nobility who came out and supported the Provost in this endeavor. French fries by Fry Master Mike Warlikowski were again consumed with enthusiasm as 100 lbs of spuds were fried to perfection. Thanks to the ladies for again providing a fabulous dessert table. Twenty nine Provost Members traveled to Nags Head, N.C. for the spring SASA Provost meeting in support of our own Allan Cannon who was installed as Chief of SASA Provost for 2013. This event was sponsored by Khedive and the Provost Guard of Khedive. The event will go down as the PARTY of the year. Highlighting the distinguished guest was Most Worshipful Kerry Cambell, Grand Master of Virginia. Enhancing the event also present were three current Potentates, Provost Members, they were Illustrious Richard Underdown, Khedive, Illustrious W.L (Billie) Jellie, ACCA, and Illustrious Leonard Rowe, Kazim. The Khedive golfers showed their prowess by winning the top two spots. First place was won by the team of Gary Meyers, Roy McKinney, Rick McClure and Wesley King. Second place went to Ed Owens, in coming Chief Allan Cannon, Jay White and Gwynn Dunbar who also was the winner of the closest to the pin. The Grand Master’s team took third place and consisted of Most Worshipful Kerry Cambell, Illustriou Leonard Rowe, Art Pendelton and Dennis Harris. The spring gathering was concluded with an excellent meal and dance with music provided by TIKI BAR band that could play music from the 50’s thru today. If you missed this event you missed the best. Even our Past Captain Ralph Porterfield (97yrs) attended and graced the dance floor on numerous occasions. We are always looking for a few good men, come join us, we meet the 2nd Wednesday, of each month at the Temple. Social is at 6:30 PM.

reetings Nobles, Ladies, and Air Horn Fan Club Members. The Mini 18-Wheelers kicked off the parade season with a positive showing at Norfolk’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. We rolled down the streets with seven trucks that day and “Blasted” our way through a rowdy crowd of cell phone users. There is nothing better than overriding someone’s conversation with the sweet sound of air horns playing in the background! Also, we welcomed back to the parade team, Noble Wiley Jernigan! Noble Wiley has been out action for a few years with health issues, but we made a few adjustments to his rig and he is now ready to start riding the roads with us again. Welcome Back Wiley!! A few weeks later a few of our unit’s members were on hand for the Gloucester Daffodil Parade and had the pleasure of riding along with the Tidewater Shrine Club. By the time this issue of the Hi-Noble hits the newsstand, our unit’s members would have also participated in the NATO Parade, and together with the Drum & Bugle Corps, taken part in a co-sponsored May golf tournament. Hopefully, the turnout will be strong, and golfers will not be too upset when they hear air horns going off in the midst of their back swing! Our summer schedule is shaping up to be a busy one, with our participation in the Paper Drive, the Khedive Rodeo and the Spring Ceremonial. (Remember to get your petitions turned in!) Also, during this time frame, we will have a few parades thrown in there too! Nobles, we usually meet on the first Monday of each

Sir Rick Underdown accompanied by his Divan, gave a great “ from the heart “ message about why we are Shriners and what our main goals should be in “Measuring up for Kids.” It was a well-attended fun night. We will be holding our next meeting in Newport News on May 30th at : Peking International Buffet, 55 Town Centre Way, Hampton, VA 757-838-2288 . To get there from the Southside, take I-64 or I-664, follow the signs to Hampton/ Newport News/Richmond. Take the Hampton Center Parkway West exit (261-A) off of I-64, stay in the right lane. Just before the first traffic light, turn in toward the AMC-24 Theater. Turn left at the stop sign and the restaurant will be on the left right next to Ruby Tuesday’s. If you’re coming from Williamsburg, it’s the first Hampton Center Parkway exit.

If you miss the right turn into the AMC24 parking lot, turn right at the first light onto Big Bethel Rd., then turn right again at the first light on Big Bethel, then the first right in the parking lot. The restaurant will be on the right. It’s an oriental buffet...but a good one with an excellent variety of good food at a reasonable price. Their buffet includes Appetizers, soups, Chinese cuisine, sushi, country-style American favorites, chicken, steak, seafood, pizza, quesadillas, fried shrimp, fresh fruits and desserts, including ice cream. The restaurant also has a full service bar. They also have a typical Chinese restaurant menu if buffet isn’t your thing. Thank Noble John Howe – Oriental Guide, for setting this up for us. Social starts at 6:00pm with dinner at 7:00pm followed by short meeting Noble Edward Usita has

volunteered to be our Paper Drive Chairman AGAIN for 2013 and is asking for members to help staff the event.

reeting Nobles from the Motor Corps. First I would like to thank our Potentate for a wonderful evening of fun and fellowship at this year’s Potentate’s Ball, it truly was an enjoyable evening. Kevin Dawkins and Gary Emerick again represented the Motor Corps at the Oyster Bowl Chili Cook Off with their secret chili recipe. Their chili is so good that they won best in Units and best overall, they won it all. Congratulations to both Gary and Kevin for a job well done. In March Motor Corps headed to Scope to perform on the ice at The Admirals Shrine Night. This is one of the highlights of the year for us. Joining us this year were the Corvettes and the Scooter Patrol,

who to our amazement, made it all the way around the arena. Many thanks to the Admirals and to all that came out to participate in and to support this fundraiser. Looking forward to next year. The Motor Corps participated in both the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Ocean View and the Daffodil parade in Gloucester. Both parades were a great success and with the large turnout we had, made both a real crowd pleaser. We would like to thank Ill. Sir Bill Kern for a fantastic breakfast before the St. Patrick’s Day parade and we want to thank the Tidewater Shrine Club for their hospitality and lunch after the Daffodil parade, we’ll be back. March 17th Motor Corps

held their second annual bowling competition at Pin Boys on Laskin Rd. I noted last year that none of us would be joining The Pro Bowler Tour any time soon, well nothing changed. But just like last year it was a great afternoon of fun, fellowship and friendly competition. Congratulations to our top bowlers, Steve Smith and Cheryl Emerick, we’ll be gunning for you next year. Before I close we would like to also congratulate The Chesapeake Shrine Club for their record breaking event and to thank them for allowing The Motor Corps to advertise our Shrimp Feast during the Oyster Roast. Well that’s all for now. We look forward to seeing everyone at Langley, and don’t forget about the Motor Corps Famous Shrimp feast May 5th, this is one you don’t want to miss!

Shriners International Awareness Day

By J Richard Rawls, Past President

T

he Peninsula Shrine Club is off and running to a great year in 2013. Our newly elected officers, Noble President Jerry Whitlock and Noble Vice President Page Neale, are working hard to do all they can to encourage the Nobles of the Peninsula Shrine Club to support the Children at our Shrine Hospitals. Thus far this year, we have received the Potentate for his official visit at our February Meeting and have had a special tax and investment program at our March Meeting. We have continued our efforts with the Shrine plaque program and have currently sold 10 plaques. We had a successful Paper Drive in March over the Easter weekend and were pleased to have many Nobles come out and help with this event. Our Annual Ladies Night was held in April and we were pleased to honor the ladies that allow us to do the work we do. Without their help and support, most of us would not be able to as active as we are. In May, we plan to support the Khedive Shrine Night at the Races at the Langley Speedway in Hampton and hold our Annual Onion Sale. Last year, the Peninsula Shrine Club offered a half-day fishing trip to raise funds for the Transportation Fund. Everyone had such a great time that we will doing it again this year. We have scheduled a half-day fishing trip on May 31st at 8:00am out of Sunset Marina in Hampton. For $35.00, you will enjoy a halfday of fishing, all rods & reels are provided and a crew onboard to help you in any way they can. You can also bring a small cooler with food and

Please contact Nobel Jerry Whitlock at 757-851-6775 to reserve your spot. The first 40 people that sign up will have a seat! As we look towards the rest of the year, we plan to have interesting programs at our meetings and we encourage all Nobles to attend each month. Without your participation, we cannot do the work needed to support our Transportation Fund and the Shrine Hospitals. Come out and see what’s happening at the Peninsula Shrine Club.

JUNE 6. 2013

hriners everywhere should mark their calendars and make plans to participate in Shriners International Awareness Day on June 6. The date recognizes the day the Imperial Council was formed – June 6, 1876. On this day every year, Shriners are asked to wear their fez, if appropriate, or hat, shirt, pin or other item with the fraternal logo to help recognize fellow Shriners and increase awareness of Shriners International. We encourage Shriners everywhere to organize events at their temples or in their local communities and to invite the public to participate, in order to increase awareness about the local temple or Shriners International. Other suggestions include posting information about Shriners International Awareness Day on your temple websites and in your temple calendars, publications and electronic communications. Be sure that each and every noble knows about Shriners International Awareness Day and encourage them to participate. The day of recognition is an opportunity for every Shriner to share information about the fraternity, its history and the benefits of becoming part of an organization that is dedicated to fun, fellowship and philanthropic support.

T

he Mid-Atlantic Association of Shrine Yacht Clubs (MAASYC) commodore ball season is in full swing. In February seven nobles and six first mates from our yacht club set off in their land cruisers to Chester, Maryland to attend the Nur Shrine Yacht Club Commodore’s Ball. For the past 26 years the Nur club has hosted this event at the Kent Island Yacht Club located a short distance on the Eastern Shore side of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge (about 15 minutes from Annapolis, MD). The next stop on the land cruise schedule was a return to homeport and our own 2013 commodore’s ball hosted by Commodore Travis Twiford and his first mate Kathy. The Khedive Yacht Club ball coincided with the Ocean View St. Patrick’s Day parade. Shrine yacht club members from Almas, Nur, and Crescent shrine joined us in the parade and their support is most appreciated. We were honored to have Ill. Rick Underdown attend our ball. Current attending association commodores were Ill. Lonnie Ramos and Lady Ann, Commodore, International Association of Shrine Yacht Clubs (IASYC) and Maurice Herbert and Lady Sandy, Commodore of MAASYC). Current commodores also attending included George Jefferson and First Mate Barbara Nur Shrine, Fletcher Johnston and First Mate Marie from Almas Shrine, and Commodore Dan Rose and First Mate Karen from Lulu Shrine. The final all-land event is Kena Yacht Club’s pirates ball on May 4th. This is another fun-filled event where most participants dress as pirates. Boating season is upon us. Our fleet captain Don Super is lining up some great boating rendezvous that begin with our shakedown cruise at Hampton City piers May 7-8th. This is followed by our traditional Memorial Day weekend cruise to Bay Creek Marina on the Eastern Shore. A few years ago Past Commodore Bill Kennedy organized a Memorial Day ceremony at Bay Creek open to the public. Yacht club members don their summer whites and Fez. The ceremony is far more than a public display of Shriners showing their deep love of country. It is deeply moving and reminds us all of the ultimate

sacrifice made by so many to keep our country the great bastion of freedom it is. There are other boating events on the horizon. One of which is the annual MAASYC rendezvous in July. This year it will be held at Spring Cove Marina located on Solomons Island, Maryland. a short distance from where the Patuxent River meets the Chesapeake Bay. There will be more to report on this event in the third quarter issue of Hi Noble. As a closing thought the word “yacht” in the name of our club should not be associated with wealth. We are a boating organization open to all Shriners with an interest on boating and one does not have to own a “yacht” to join.

Tidewater Shrine Club By Noble Scott Traner

reetings Brother Nobles, spring has sprung and we here at the Tidewater Shrine Club waited with breathless anticipation for the Gloucester Daffodil Parade. The day bloomed with sunshine and warmer temps than we have been used to. The parade was a great success and we would especially like to thank noble Paul Beck and all of the units that came and supported us. Noble President Rob Parker diligently performed his duties as chief cook over a hot grill and by all accounts his burgers and dogs were cooked to perfection. As usual we had great participation from the TSC members and all help was greatly appreciated. We had our paper drive on Easter week end at the Gloucester WalMart and garnered over 1900.00. This was an improvement of over 400.00 from last year. We had about 18 Nobles take shifts and some of them were unscheduled so that was great. I have to say the members of the TSC are tops in my book. Thanks to all who helped. We had occasion to supply hospitality for a very eye opening discussion on the workings of the Cincinnati Shriners Hospital. It

was presented at the Walter Reed Hospital. Ms. Debbie Harrell gave the talk to about thirty people in the hospital industry from our area. Many different types of injuries or birth defects were reported on and I have to tell you my brothers that my eyes were opened even further on all the special work being done at our hospitals. I thought I had a good idea of what we do but I was clueless. If you ever have a chance to attend a lecture like this please do so,it will definitely enlighten you and make you even prouder of our fraternity. Special thanks to Nobles Ben Garrett, Terry Putt, David Crockett and Gary Counasse for their assistance. In April we had our ladies night at the Brickwood Grill. The only thing better than the food was the great friendship shared among the Nobles and their ladies. President Rob once again rose to the occasion and you could see that his hard work was not only appreciated but very professional.

reetings, Nobles! A happy and prosperous 2013 to all. I’d like to introduce myself as Steve Combs and I am honored to have been elected and given the responsiblility to serve as the 2013 President of the OVSC in my short time as being a Shriner. In fact, I just crossed the hot sands during last year’s Spring Ceremonial. The rest of the 2013 officers are as follows: Vice President, Alex Martin; Secretary, Alan Brown; Treasurer, Wayne Kelly; and Sergeant at Arms, John Glauner. We meet every first Thursday (excluding December for our annual installation) at Mom and Pop’s Restaurant, 331 East Bayview Boulevard in Norfolk near the intersectoin of Bayview Blvd. and Tidewater Drive. Please plan to join us soon. We’d love to have you visit! February was Illustrious Sir Rick

Underdown’s official visit and it was well received. As most of you know, Bill Coker who was also a member of OVSC and our last Treasurer recently and suddenly went to the Celestial Lodge above in January. A day simply does not go by that I don’t think of him and miss him immensely. Although he is no longer with us, I can always be very happy to have had a chance to be with him, to have known him and to have enjoyed his company and sense of humor every time I got a chance to see him. I am glad to have the opportunity to write this news article for many the chance to read that I must give very special thanks to the Nobles from the Tidewater Shrine Club who very often pay us a visit. Not only do they attend regularly, they travel

quite a distance from the Middle Peninsula/Gloucester area which makes me appreciate their frequent visits even more so! As far as announcements, we are in the planning stages of our Onion Sale which should be taking place in the next few months. Unfortunately, I do not have any more information on this to provide as of this writing but any updates I have will be forwarded as soon as possible to be publicized including being posted on the Khedive Temple website. Even though I consider myself a novice Shriner, if there is any way I can be of any assistance to any Unit or Club please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will do all that I can to help “if within the length of my cable tow.”

obles, On Tuesday April 23, 2013 a Mason Johnny Chappell came to the office along with his mother. Eva Marie Chappell widow of Junior Chappell, a Khedive member who passed away April 1st. They came to give us a substantial donation to the Children’s Hospitals in his memory. While here in the office Marie told us a very interesting story. It seems that when she was a baby, 1 year old (she was born in 1922 by the way) she fell into a fireplace that had hot coals still inside. She suffered extensive burns and was rushed to the Hospital by

her mother. The Doctor treated her but told her mother she probably would not be alive in the morning. She survived the night and with the help of her Church and Doctors was able to get into Duke Hospital where she spent 7 years being treated.

SECOND QUARTER 2013

Clubs Khedive Shriners

Williamsburg Shrine Club By Tom E. Lasher Past President

ADMIRALS NIGHT PHOTOS

t has been a quiet quarter for the Williamsburg Shrine Club, but don’t let that fool you. Under the surface we have been very busy. Our February meeting welcomed the Potentate, Divan and an array of Officers from Khedive. As usual, the Divan and Officers provided entertainment and information, but needless to say, some of it was at the expense of our Oriental Guide, John Howe. But John came through it with flying colors and along with Woody Brown, showed us what a great future we have with these two new officers. Our March meeting was a meeting in which the Club discussed fund raising projects which included our Paper Crusade, our upcoming Golf Tournament, and our two fund raising dinners. As with many of our Clubs and Units, our membership numbers are shrinking, so staffing these events has become more of a challenge, so an additional point of

conversation for our meeting was membership and how to increase it. Many new ideas came forth from which we are already reaping the benefits. In April we had a program presented by Carl Lounsbury, a Senior Architectural Historian for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, who presented an interesting program on the history of Bruton Parish Episcopal Church from 1674 to today. It included its early construction and the several building additions that have been added throughout the years creating what we see today. As always, we hope you will take the opportunity to come over and see us. We meet on the first Wednesday of each month at the Holiday Inn on Bypass Road (US 60) in Williamsburg. The social hour begins at 6:00PM with dinner at 7:00PM. Come enjoy the fun, fellowship and food.

Directions to the Holiday Inn are easy. Take I-64 to Williamsburg. And when you get here, take the “Camp Perry” exit . Turn onto Rt 143 EAST. Pass through the first stop light, then turn right at the next stoplight, and then turn right again at the next stoplight. That is Bypass Rd., or US Rt 60. The hotel is located at the top of the hill, on the right, next to the Knights Inn 1776. Please call Noble Dick Jones (757-566-0506) by the Friday before the meeting to make a dinner reservation.
