From the POTE Illustrious Sir Tom Richardson

Well, the month of February went by faster than January. February was a busy one with a great Super Bowl Party get together at the Event Center. The Divan had their first official visit of the year at the Chewelah Golf and Country Club hosted by Northeast Washington Shrine Club. Spangle Lodge had a wonderful chicken dinner. Then, the next morning we, the Divan, made the big drive to Wilsonville, Oregon, for Pacific Northwest Shrine Association winter session. February’s 28 days just flew by. March is even a busier month for the Divan. Our Stated Meeting, March 1st, will have a history lesson of El Katif provided by, the one and only, Ada Adnerson. On March 3rd, Cheryl and I will be heading to Pasco for a 5:00 PM presentation on the Pote’s Trip to Branson, Missouri, October 9th through October 15th, brought to you by AAA. The presentation in Spokane will be at the Shriners Event Center on March 11th at 4:00 PM. March 11th is also our first parade of the year in Spokane, the St. Patty’s Parade. After the Parade let us get together for lunch and show the public who we are! Our Official Visits in March are as follows; 8th Whitman County Shrine Club, 16th South Spokane Shrine Club, 20th Moonshriners, and, last for the month, is North Spokane on the 27th. Don’t forget the Shabby Chic Sale on March 25th and 26th. The sale is the First Divan Ladies fundraiser with net proceeds going toward something special for the Shriners Event Center. The Ladies are accepting donation of antiques, collectables, and quality items but no clothes please. Look for the Shabby Chic advertisements in The Word and other places. Any question please calls Shelly Wood at 509-370-4944. The Freedom Raffle ticket sales are under way and off to a great start. Interested in buying tickets or selling tickets? Contact Chase at the El Katif office by calling 509-624-2762. The top seller will win a Henry .22 rifle, Masonic Edition. Duck Race tickets are also on sale, they’re not off to a good start due to poor weather and low attendance at the Boat Show. I’m confident that as we move forward our sales will pick up. If you sign up to sell Duck Race tickets be sure to show up; if you can’t make it to your scheduled time, please call me! Now getting down to earth, we are two months away from our Spring Ceremonial on April 29th. It would be greatly appreciated if you would get out to your Blue Lodges and work hard on corralling some new candidates for El Katif. Giddy up Go! Takin’ Care of Business. Thank you!

The Recorder’s Ramblings... Ill Sir Jay Smith, PP

Nobles and Ladies, Well, the snow and ice is still present at the El Katif Temple. There are snow piles everywhere. We, as El Katif Nobles, have to be very careful when walking in these conditions. Our poor building has sustained a little damage, also due to the snow and ice on the roof. Our rain gutters have been damaged, and repairs will need to be made to correct the problem this spring. In talking with our insurance company, we are not alone with this problem. Hopefully winter is on the downhill slide. In looking at the calendar, March is going to be a very busy month. We start off with our Stated Meeting on March 1st. Remember that there will be a Club and Units Meeting at 5:30. Dinner is scheduled at 6:00 p.m. and Stated Meeting at 7:00 p.m. For the evening’s entertainment, we will have as a guest speaker our own Ada Anderson from the office. She will be giving a talk on El Katif Shrine history based on her research that she has dug up out of our membership files. Nobles, you will find this very entertaining! On March 3rd Illustrious Sir Tom and Lady Cheryl will be going to the Tri

Cities to give their Branson trip presentation. This will take place at the Columbia Basin Shrine Club at 5:00 p.m. On March 8th Illustrious Sir Tom, the Divan and Ladies will be having an Official Visit with the Whitman County Shrine Club at the Hilltop in Pullman. On March 9-11 our Oriental Guide Roger Nelson will be traveling to Tampa for Oriental Guide School. Then right behind Roger, Jon Lind will go to Tampa for Assistant Rabban School on the 12th – 14th. On March 11th at 12:00 p.m. is the St. Patty’s Day Parade. I really hope that we can get to our parade vehicles at the Airway Heights Barn. The last time that I looked there was 2 ½ to 3 feet of snow all around the building. Well Nobles, this is why we own a tractor. We can solve that problem. This will most likely be a cold parade, so dress warm. On March 16th South Spokane Shrine Club will be hosting their Official Visit at 6:00 p.m. at the Spokane Valley VFW. On March 20th the Moonshriners will be hosting their Official Visit at the Event Center at 6:00 p.m. On March 25 -26 the Divan Ladies will be hosting a “Collectables” sale called “Shabby Chic”. For further information on this event please contact Noble Gary Wood’s Lady Shelly. th


Lastly on the March schedule, North Spokane Shrine Club will be hosting their Official Visit at the Northside Eagles on March 27th at 6:00 p.m. Now that I have gone through the March events, I want to touch base on some very important subjects and events. Nobles, on April 29th El Katif Shrine will be having a Hot Sands Ceremonial at the Event Center. Nobles, do you have a new candidate for this event? Membership should be on all of our minds. April 29th is not that far away. We so far have only read one

petition. Please, let’s get busy and get your petitions turned in. The El Katif membership depends on this. If you do not have a petition, there is one on the inside cover of this issue. Also, there are a lot of gun raffle tickets out there. If you have sold some tickets, please get the ticket stubs turned in to the office for our record keeping. Well Nobles, that is all for now. Stay safe out there. Winter is still upon us.

Doug Warnock Valentine’s Day was the theme of the Blue Mt. Shrine Club’s meeting on February 10. For a number of years the monthly Blue Mt. Shrine Club’s meetings have included both Nobles and their ladies. This has added a lot to the success of the meetings and the ladies have become valuable partners and advocates for the work we do to support the Shriners Hospital for Children in Spokane. Having the Shrine meetings be a couple’s activity has strengthened the club and increased its sustainability. As part of the Valentine’s Day focus for the meeting, local Job’s Daughters Bethel 52 operated a photo booth so each Noble and his Lady could have a picture taken for the special occasion. The photos were enclosed in an attractive card and were available for couples to take home. Nobles made individual donations to the Bethel to bolster its operating

Because the January meeting was cancelled, this was the first Blue Mt. meeting with Noble Dave Campanella and his Lady Brenda as our liaison. Noble Dave reported on El Katif’s planned activities and programs for the spring season. Noble Dave spoke on the Spokane Shriners Hospital receiving a large grant, which will be available to expand the hospital’s physical facilities. He talked about many good things that are happening regarding the hospital.

news about future possibilities and some continuing remodeling of the facility. The new Mantra for the hospital system is: “Lead the Mission”. SHC system goals are to serve more children at more locations and improve our “brand” and image and sustain the mission. The Greeters are proud to help accomplish these goals.

STATED MEETING! March 1, 2017 Club/Units - 5:30 | Dinner - 6:00 Stated - 7:00 Call today to RSVP for Dinner



North East Washington Official Visit



Kurt Kimberling, PP February was a confusing month when it comes to weather; One day cold with freezing rain, another snow, another a balmy 40 degree afternoon, multiple school closures, and flood watches. However, with the MoonShriners you can count on consistency! We meet, we eat, we have fun, we get stuff



and plans made.

The annual Shrine recognition night at Spangle was well attended by Moonies and our Pote Tom closed lodge in proper form. February was Chili! I mean that the family style dinner we have with our monthly meeting featured Chili. Everybody had as much as they could hold, along with all the accoutrements. The recipe was great but the fellowship was even better. Fortunately we don’t meet the day after dinner. Our meeting was held afterward where future events were discussed

The next big function we are involved in is the St Patricks’ Day Parade 11 March, our Annual MoonShriners/Divan Official visit 20 March, and then the real deal the Spring Ceremonial at the Event Center on the 29th of April. We are getting started early. Our President Jim T. has a fun filled calendar slated for us. You know what they say, “The best way to support the Shrine or your club is to participate!” Speaking of parades, hopefully this year

our ’35 mobile still will be up to the challenge of a busy parade season. Word has it there are dedicated MoonShriners who are busily working to ensure that when we hit the streets we do it with flair and banjo music. Don’t miss an opportunity to participate in the Moonie Parade experience. Stay warm and healthy until we meet again.

Ryan Leonard Greetings Nobles, The snow is melting, I’m starting to see grass, and college basketball season is winding down. I think spring is on the way! Were you able to figure what movie last month’s quote came from? “I find your lack of faith disturbing.” The answer is “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (1977).” It’s a scene in which Darth Vader (played by David Prowse with the voice supplied by James Earl Jones) uses the Force to strangle a Death Star officer after that officer questions Vader’s faith in the Force to discover the Death Star plans stolen by the Rebel Alliance. And now, this month’s movie quote.

The Actors are looking forward to putting on the first section of two Hot Sands Ceremonials in 2017, one of them taking place on Saturday, April 29 and the second taking place on either Saturday, November 11 or Saturday, November 18. We look forward to performing for several candidates so get those Petitions coming in! Finally, the Actors can always use more Nobles to add to our ranks! If you like to dress up in costume, perform on stage, or if you would like to help with stage setup and lighting, then we want to hear from you! Please contact our president, Dale Hearn, at (509) 475-7636 or by email at ppelkatif98@

“Heeeeere’s Johnny!” Hint, it’s not Ed McMahon introducing Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show. Do you think you know what movie this quote came from? The answer will be revealed in April.
