HONOR GUARD Al Aranda Right off from jump street, need to reminder and ask all of our members to keep all these members in your prayers: our Illustrious Past Potentate G.I. Flores as he’s still flying at slow speed, but slowly he’s getting there; Noble John Mauro has to go for seconds as they did not replace all his spare parts. The Inouye’s daughter is also flying low and Noble Jerry Hockman
there; Noble John Mauro has to go for seconds as they did not replace all his spare parts. The Inouye’s daughter is also flying low and Noble Jerry Hockman had a complete wheel replacement, with all of our prayers and the Good Lord, they should be jumping back into full swing. Need to thank the lineups at the stated meeting and the Boerne Parade and as always, we cannot forget the lovely ladies that supported the club at the parade. Also, need to thank all the Nobles that supported the club at the ceremonial. A big atta boy and girl to everybody that supported the club at the Circus. Like always, we had a super time and enjoyed it. All of you members that did not join us at our luncheon, you all missed out on some super food, kool-aid and friendship and lots of fun. May the Good Lord keep us safe and in good health.
THE LAREDO SHRINE CLUB By: Larry Lowe The Laredo Shrine Club has been quiet this summer. August 2nd & 3rd was the beginning of our 7th year of the Shriners Childrens Hospital of Houston Laredo Outreach Clinic. Our 1st Clinic was in August, 2012, and we saw 39 patients. The last 2 clinics we have seen 100+ patients. Our Clinics are a huge success. We want to give a huge “thank you” to Alzafar for allowing us to use vans and drivers from the Hospital Corps. This has become a big part of our success. As always, we cannot thank our volunteers enough. The Laredo Shrine Club has combined efforts with the Nuevo Laredo Shrine Club to aide in getting our patients through customs at the bridge. The Laredo Shrine Club will have hosted a Bowling Tournament on August 30, 2018. The proceeds are to help fund our clinics and support the other Laredo Shrine Club endeavors. The Club is continuing with our bucket restaurant collections, which are still going strong.
