From the POTE Illustrious Sir Tom Richardson

Potentate’s Message The Nobility, Divan, Divan Ladies, and I were off and running during the late summer early fall schedule of work now behind us. The smoke finally had lifted, with the blue sky showing, and a few clouds. Hooray, the Public and Shriners got to breathe some fresh air for the first time in weeks. Our membership committee and the members are the driving force to a successful amount of new members. Giddy Up Go! Takin’ Care of Business. In September, the Spokane Interstate Fair was a slow start but the better weather sure changed that mood and helped our attitudes plus made the fair turn out well. The WSU football game was a great one thanks to Jerry Schieche again. On to the Duck Race with the construction confusion at the Riverfront Park was just another hurdle to overcome but with the Nobility working hard together we had a fun time. The EWU football game will be enjoyed by all that attend. October is going to be busy as well. On the 4th is our Ladies 1st Appreciation Night with the famous dinner hosted by their Nobles. Hope you all RSVP the office. It is time we show our Ladies how much we need their help in what we do as Shriners. Remember, the dinner is free for the Ladies but you Gents or Nobles will still have to dig deep into those pockets and pay. The Entertainment will be provided by our own El Katif Band, Chanters, and Actors. Then, the Fall Screening Clinics on the 7th will be held at various locations. Moving on to October 9th -15th, Lady Cheryl and I will be leaving for our Branson, Missouri, and our big trip with some of our Nobles and their Ladies joining us and returning on the 15th. The last Saturday, on the 28th of October, is the Blue Jeans and Bling Auction. Being held at the Mirabeau Hotel in the Spokane Valley. There will be special rates for El Katif Shriners of $90.00 plus taxes to stay Saturday night. November 1st is our Salute to Veterans Tribute with special guests. Do not forget to RSVP the Shriners Office for dinner! Membership Committee and Members please work hard to let us have a great big number of new members for our Fall Ceremonial on the 11th. Part will be held at the Event Center in the morning and early afternoon and the evening will be held at the Mirabeau Hotel with the special El Katif Shriners rate of $90.00 plus taxes to stay that night. You will need to RSVP the office for dinner as well. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Nobles and their Ladies for the help at the events in September. A Big Thanks to Billy and Judi Eberly, George and Chris Rotas, IS Mike Harper, and IS Jerry Schieche. It would not have been such a big success without your help plus the rest of the Nobility and their Ladies as well. Let’s continue to: Giddy Up Go!

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

Nobles and Ladies, I can’t believe how fast September is flying by. We are still working on the results from the fair food booth and Duck sales. The Moonies, as always, had a great elephant ear season. The weather didn’t help any with the steady smoky haze. I certainly want to thank everyone that stepped up to help out. Also, I would like to thank Ill Sir Mike Harper, Billy and Judi Eberly, and George and Chris Rotas, for putting in countless hours. Also, thanks to everyone who helped put on the Duck Race and made it another great success. As we move into the month of October we will start off with Ladies Appreciation Night on October 4th. At 5:30pm, there will be a short meeting only to vote on perspective new candidates. Please remember the voting process has been changed to a paper ballot. This shouldn’t take up much time. Dinner is scheduled for 6:00pm. Nobles, please RSVP for dinner so that we can get an accurate food count. This is very important and we cannot guess. Then around 7:00pm Ill Sir Tom will have a program which will honor our El Katif Shrine Ladies. On October 9-15 Ill Sir Tom and Lady Cheryl will be hosting their Potentate’s trip to Branson, Missouri. This trip sounds like a lot of fun! On October 28, El Katif will be hosting our fall auction “Blue Jeans & Bling” at the Mirabeau Hotel in the Spokane Valley. Jim and Michele always put on a great auction. The doors will open at 4:00pm, so get your table and bring your friends. Tables go for $280 per table, or there is a single price of $35 per person. So act now and come have some fun at “Blue Jeans & Bling”. For those of you that wish to stay the night, Jim has secured a Shrine room rate of $90 for a King or Queen Executive room. For hotel reservations the number to call is 509-924-9000. Our next event is on November 1st at our Shriners Event Center, which is our annual Musical Salute to Veterans. Just like Ladies Appreciation Night, we will follow a similar schedule. At 5:30pm we will open with a short meeting to vote on potential new candidates. This will be done as quickly as possible. Dinner will start at 6:00pm. RSVP is a must. Our Musical Salute to Veterans program will start at 7:00pm. Lastly on the schedule is our Fall Ceremonial slated for November 11th. The details for the day and evening are posted in this month’s issue of The Word, which is very detailed. In order to have a great Fall Ceremonial we need candidates. At the time that I am writing this article we have only voted on two candidates. We only have a little bit of time to get our numbers up. So, come on Nobles, let’s bring them in. Well, that’s all for now, Ill Sir Jay 3

Chaplain’s Corner Tom Felton

Greetings to all Shriners, How many of you Nobles have noticed, as I have, how many of our young Mothers and Fathers know nothing about the Shrine or the Shrine Hospital? I have been taking a small survey among our young people, asking them if they know about the Shrine or the Shriners hospital. Only 1 out of 10 said they know about the hospital, but even they don’t know very much about how it works. It dosen’t take much to explain to a Mother that her baby can be checked out by a Doctor and it won’t cost her a cent. Or to tell a mother with a healthy child that if she sees a child that needs help that she could tell its Mother about the hospital. We all know that word-of-mouth is the best advertisement there is and the best communication there is for anything. So keep it in mind as you speak to young people with babies or young children. It not only gets the word out about the Hospital, but may also get the word around about Shriners and our philanthropy. God Bless You All, and God Bless America.

Hank Cramer, Lt Col, USA (Ret), Guest Performer in our “Musical Salute To Veterans”

The first thing I want to mention, as we go into OCTOBER is to remind everyone to look at the fullpage ad for the 18th Anniversary Production of the “MUSICAL SALUTE TO VETERANS” that you are ALL invited to enjoy on Wednesday, 1 November 2017, at 7:00pm, after the Holiday Turkey dinner preceding at 6:00pm. DON’T MISS IT!!!  Reservations are necessary for the $15.00 Dinner - Call 6242762.  The “SALUTE” is FREE!   September started the Wednesday evening Rehearsals for the El Katif Shrine Band, and the El Katif Shrine Chanters at 7:00pm, at the Shrine Event Center.  ALL Shriners, and their Ladies are urged to come out and practice for the musical salute.  Be a part of a great Show.  You can even invite your fellow Choir Members to join you.  The Dress Rehearsal is 7:00pm on Wednesday, 25 October, for all Performers, LOH Color Guard, Heroes of ‘76 Color Guard, Shrine Band, and Shrine Chanters.  Representatives of the Civil War Reenactors, Jr ROTC Cadets, and Sea Cadets will not be required to take part, or our Guest Soloist.   Let’s not forget our monthly LOH Dinner Meeting on Columbus Day, 9 October, at 5:30 pm at the Eagle’s Hall.  Commander Gene invites ALL El Katif Military Vets and their Ladies to join us.

Bob Valentine Greetings Nobles – As you read this, the month of September is soon history and one of the busiest months is soon coming to a close – many of you have worked at the FAIR in the food booth and/or selling Duck tickets. Thanks for your help. The WSU Shrine game is probably ”in the books” and the Duck Race may be completed. The EWU game is on Sept. 30th. October is coming soon, so get ready for the Ladies Night Stated Meeting on Oct. 4th, and to quote Greeter Herb, “Buy a glass of wine for a Lady!” The Potentate’s Branson Trip is the 9th thru 15th so look out for those Bald Knobbers in the Ozarks. Remember to contact Michele Stewart to donate an item and then deliver your Fall Auction items to the Shrine Office early in the month in preparation for the “Blue Jeans & Bling” event on October 28th. Contact your friends, neighbors and relatives and bring them along to the Mirabeau Park Hotel – this promises to be a great opportunity to find some bargains at the Silent Auction and valuable items to bid on in the Live Auction. Come on out for great Fun and Festivities! At our recent Greeters meeting it was voted that we provide a check to help support the Fall Auction. Thanks Greeters! The Greeters will be busy in November for the Fall Ceremonial on Nov. 11. Greeting the new Candidates and providing the Hospital Tour for the New Nobles and their Ladies are only part of our duties for that event. Get your Petitions submitted and recruit some new Nobles in time to join in our philanthropy and fun this year… CALLING ALL NOBLES --- Your help is needed to BE a Greeter. If you want to be more active at the Spokane Hospital greeting our patients and their parents and providing Tours, we need YOU ! Just one week-day per month is all we need of your time from 7:30am to 2:00pm – It is a very rewarding experience volunteering & interacting with the Kids We Help at the Hospital. Contact any of us to learn more or attend a Greeter’s meeting. *** See you at the next Stated Meeting & remember the Greeters Unit meeting is always the following Thursday @ Noon in the 5th floor auditorium of the Hospital. The 2016 Fact Sheet for Spokane Shriners Hospital is available to view with all the remarkable statistics for last year when YOU visit for a comprehensive look at all the wonderful information about our great Spokane Hospital – there’s a wealth of information there to bring you the latest on what is happening!!! 11

Doug Warnock The September meeting of the Blue Mt. Shrine Club was held on Saturday, September 9 to allow Nobles and Ladies to attend the rally for Walla Walla Wheeling Weekend on Friday, September 8, which is our normal meeting night. Hundreds of car enthusiasts were in Walla Walla for the weekend to exhibit their vintage cars of all makes and models. Noble President Gerald Taylor and Lady Carri Ann were celebrating their 47th wedding anniversary. Forty seven roses were made into bouquets for the dining tables and given to the Ladies to take home after the meeting. Five special guests shared the prime rib dinner with our Nobles and Ladies. On October 13, Blue Mt. Shrine Club Nobles, along with area Masons, will gather at Cordiner Hall on the campus of Whitman College during Whitman’s home coming to help our community celebrate the life of Noble and Brother Bob Thomsen. He passed away in late August at the age of 103. He was an active Mason in Walla Walla Lodge #7 and the Blue Mt. Shrine Club for many years. Noble Bob was a legendary coach at Whitman College, having coached most all sports at one time or another. He was very active and well respected throughout the community and was a fine example of what Masonry is all about. He was a caring, kind and thoughtful person who helped many people in time of need. Noble Bob left a legacy of community involvement and service to others. On October 13, Blue Mt. Shrine Club will resume meeting on the second Friday. Noble President Taylor urges Nobles to invite guests to the October meeting.

A warm Hello from Columbia Basin Shrine Club! We have had a fun and busy summer supporting the Shriner’s Hospital for Children and area parades! CBSC took 1st place in the Ritzville parade on September 2nd and 2nd place in the Prosser “States Day” parade on September 4th. We also had a strong showing for the Benton Franklin County Fair parade on August 26th, which was highlighted by our beloved clown “Jolly” being featured on the front page of the Tri-City Herald! A very special thanks to Noble Robert Morrow and Lady Lisa Morrow for their hard work keeping the parade equipment in tip-top shape! Noble Jim Hay worked hard through the summer on our screening clinics and transportation activities. Noble Ray Schulz continues to set the example for our club’s raffle sales and by leading our hospital fund collection activities. At our Stated Meeting on September 8th, CBSC 1st Vice President Bob Brockman and Noble Ray Schulz presented Lisa Smith from Shriner’s Hospital Spokane with a check for $9000.00 for the Radiology Suite #1! On September 23rd our club is traveling by chartered bus to Pullman to watch the WSU Cougars play the “Wolf Pack” of University of Nevada, Reno. As the summer winds-down, our club is looking forward to our Screening Clinic on October 21st and of course, the Fall Ceremonial on November 11th. Until next month, Warmest Regards from the Nobles and Ladies of the Columbia Basin Shrine Club!

John Robertson, PP

The days are shorter and Fall is here. The weather is changing quickly and it is time to return to Labors of Lodge meetings and planning for the parades of next year. We haven’t been able to get our Red Caddie out much the last couple of years as we need more Nobles to join in the fun. If you would like to join us for discussion of what we can do in order to get her out to some events next year please meet up for hospitality at our next Stated Shrine meeting. It sure would be great to discuss the possibilities of getting her to another East West Game in Montana. We had a great 25yr Tradition of going to this event in Montana and it would be great to revitalize the Tradition. The Original Members of the Mobile Unit would be pleased with our efforts if we can make this happen. Speaking of the East West Game – If you are interested in doing a little research on how we might be able to get one restarted here in Washington please reach out to John @ 509-590-5441. The members of the Mobile Unit are always active in various aspects of our functions and our meetings are generally quick so look for Doug Baker, Jim Heebink or myself for more details. ‘The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched-they must be felt with the heart.” Helen Keller


Kurt Kimberling, PP The Annual Interstate Fair is over and done!! Thank you to all the club members, family, friends and volunteers that supported our Club. Thank you again to everyone who came in and filled a valuable position/ task in our Elephant Ear Booth Team. This annual event takes quite a bit of organization and team work to be successful. Some of the tasks are: getting the booth ready prior to the fair, ordering material necessary for the daily activities, staffing the huge amount of slots necessary to run a shift, training on the various tasks to serve our customers such as: making dough, cutting into biscuits, sheeting, throwing, cooking, buttering, sugaring, stacking, presenting to the window, filling soda requests, dealing with our customers and handling the inevitable snafus that seem to occur at the most in-opportune times, along with mixing the sugar, washing the aprons, etc. There are more, but the idea is that each task must be done to provide the income stream we rely on to support our mission and have fun. We did it again and we were very successful! If there are any suggestions to improve our operation please let our president know so that we can evaluate and implement them if possible. Our last warm weather, so to speak, parade was the Valley Fest Parade out in the Valley. It seems as if everybody truly enjoys our performance. I guess we appeal to a tremendous range of ages. A good turnout by our members demonstrates to the community that Shriners, especially MoonShriners enjoy a good time and this in turn provides great public relations and hopefully results in membership gains. Don’t forget that the October Shrine Stated meeting is designed to honor our Ladies and the terrific support they provide to our Clubs/Units/endeavors. Bring your Ladies! Ladies eat free, men have to pay for their own dinner and the entertainment will be amazing. Please RSVP to the office so that they know how much food to order. November’s Stated meeting will be our annual Tribute to Veterans. Our Fall Ceremonial will be on the 12th of November (Actual Veterans Day). Someone mentioned, “Wouldn’t it be cool if our Vets wore their uniforms for that evening’s dinner”. Something to think about. . . How many of us still have a uniform that fits, especially after eating all those left over Ears at the end of the shift!

Donna Fisher John Robertson, PP Here we are with Fall in the air and the changes in daylight are bringing color to the trees. Mowing and yard work are starting to slow down which creates more time for us to socialize in the evenings. With that being said we meet at the VFW 1439 on S. David St every third Thursday of the month and you are all welcome to join us in friendship and hospitality. Our President Jeff Duty has kept us busy this past month with working at the fair selling Duck Race Tickets, ‘What a great way to confirm why you are a Shriner.” You get to hear “Thank You.” from so many past patients and family members. You don’t realize how much we contribute to making the world a better place by helping kids until you sell tickets a couple times a year. Make plans to help out next year. We had the float to several parades as well as down to the Riverfront Park for the Duce Race itself. She sure looks good with the updated signs and carpet. If you are ever interested in getting out to parades just let us know as we are always looking for more Nobles to enjoy spreading the word of our Fraternity and Philanthropy. We are headed into October and we will have our annual Octoberfest meeting and Dinner. Call for more details. November is around the corner and we need more Candidates so make sure you visit your Lodges and stay involved. Call Denny Hogan @ 509-217-3607, John @ 509-590-5441 or Rod @ 509-990-4028.

A fun time was had by our members in working the El Katif fair booth. What a big job setting this up and long hours. Thank you for including all the groups. The Clownery face painted Sept 23/24th at Valley Fest and are looking forward to Christmas. We went to Western Area in September to Scotsdale,Az, consisting of nine western states. The courts did Indian dancing, fan dancing, and we did HOT TODDY with pixies and IT’S A SMALL WORLD featuring the children of the Shrine. There was a Grand Canyon tour along with others. Ask those that went about the fun. Don’t forget May 2018 is Hawaii. Save your money. We have movie night with popcorn once a month. MEETINGS – 1st Tuesday of each month at Concordia Lodge in Millwood. 7:00. WEAR THE WHITE FEZ.. Dues are $35. HAPPY HALLOWEEN It’s the Songs you sing and the Smiles you wear that make the Sunshine everywhere.
