Khedive Shriners

Annual Oyster Bowl By Chairman Terry Riley


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


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
