NOTES FROM

THE POTE

by the Illustrious Sir Jim Burma, Jr.

ell, the year is going really fast for all of us I’m sure. October was a busy month for El Riad as always. We hosted the Shrine Circus and Fund Raising Association (SCAFRA) Convention here in Sioux Falls October 19 – 21 with attendees from all over the country. Imperial Chief Rabban Jim Cain was also in attendance. SCAFRA President Marv Lovro and his entire team put on a great meeting and all were very impressed with our building and the fundraisers we put together. It’s great to get a chance to show off all of our great work! We lost a great friend and Past Potentate Pat “Greeter” Colbert in October. The Funeral and Masonic Service was held at the El Riad Temple on October 5. The turnout was great and it was a nice send off with help of the Oriental Band and Back Forty Boys! Thanks to all that helped and attended, Pat will be missed by all. November will keep us busy again. Some are off to help at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open November 1–5 in Las Vegas. Next up will be our all new Fall Ceremonial on Veterans Day, November 11. Please review the schedule

JIM BURMA, JR, Potentate EL RIAD SHRINE • Sioux Falls, South Dakota

for the changes we are going to try this year. Hopefully, when all get together for our 2 p.m. opening, we will have a packed house. It would be nice to have lots of Nobles and Ladies in attendance to make this more of a special reunion and celebration. After the conclusion, the Culinary Unit will have lots of great stuff for us to eat and snack on. Special thanks to the Ritualistic Unit and Directors Staff for helping us try this and adjust their days a bit to help. On November 22, I would like to personally invite you to my 50th Birthday Party! The fun will start about 5 p.m. with an opening band 6 – 7 p.m. and Sugar Daddy playing from 7 – 10 p.m. Thanks to the Clowns for helping with this fun event. This will be great way to wrap up my year as your Potentate having a party with all my friends and family at the best live music building in town! Please enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday with your friends and family! Thanks to all for everything you all do for El Riad!

BIG BAND

Last Call will return to Grand Falls Casino

by John Bayer, Big Band President

reetings from the Big Band!! We have had a busy summer and have a lot going in into the fall and winter as well. To start our fall, on September 23, our Rock Band, Last Call, had the honor of playing at the wedding dance for Oriental Band member Big Mike and Kristi Petterson, it was a fun night, and it was our pleasure being a part of their big day. On October 14, Last Call also had the opportunity to play for another OB member, Lonnie Perryman at his bar in Beresford, Klassix. Thanks for the opportunity Lonnie, we always have fun playing there.   November is also a busy month for us. On November 10, Last Call plays at the VFW in Sioux Falls from 8–12

p.m., the very next day, November 11, the Big Band will be playing at the shrine Fall Ceremonial as usual, then at 6:30 p.m., the Big Band will be playing a special Veterans Day program at the VFW in Sioux Falls and will follow up with Last Call playing 8–12 p.m. Please stop in and see us, we have a busy weekend planned, I hope the boys are up for the challenge! The Big Band will be ending the year in December playing at various Nursing Homes in the area, as well as a Saturday afternoon at Scheels. On December 26, Last Call will return to Grand Falls Casino on the free stage. We would like as many Shriners there as possible, stop out and see us!

EL RIAD OUTHOUSE UNIT/

his is the story we wish we didn’t have to tell. During this past week we lost a cherished Masonic/Shrine brother. With deepest regrets we lost our friend and fellow bandmate Pat “Greeter” Colbert. Greeter loved life and those around him. I was proud to be a part of his “team” when Pat and Denise led El Riad as Potentate and First Lady in 2011. A special memory from that year—when Pat stopped into the office prior to the 2011 Fall Ceremonial I asked him who he had chosen to be honored as Shriner of the Day so we could include the name in ceremonial preparations (Cactus, programs, etc.) He wrote out the name and handed it to me. To my surprise he had written my name. Many tears, smiles and hugs. And over the ensuring years I had gotten to know him as a very special person, friend and member of the B40Bs. His talents certainly didn’t go unnoticed—banjo, guitar, harmonica, singing and most especially leadership. During our Masonic rituals we are asked “to meet on the level”. Greeter practiced that in life as he made us all feel equal. As a member of the clown unit, I was once asked if clowns cry—yes, they do. To Denise, Jocelyn, Paul and family our love and support. And regarding the thunder/rain we heard this week, I believe it was the roar of laughter from the angels in Heaven after Greeter had shared another story with them. We love you Greeter...

EL RIAD

CLOWNS

he El Riad Clowns have had a very busy summer. We have been in 15 parades and have done several other balloon tying events and benefits in South Dakota, Minnesota, and Nebraska. We have a few more parades and benefits as we begin to wrap up our summer schedule.

Some of the other things we have done this summer is gotten our trailer wrapped so it advertises who we are and matches the van. We had a great showing at MSA and brought back 8 trophies for El Riad. Auguste category: Buckets came first and Wingnut took third

6

In the Character category: Flapjack came in second Rookie of the Year: Buckets Parade Ability: Buckets won first In the One Man Skit: Hank won third The Two Man Skit: Buckets and Wingnut came in first And in the Group Skit: Sticky, Buckets, and Critter took first We are also working on an El Riad Shrine Coloring Book which will include several clowns from years ago and several current El Riad Clowns and will include a little history about the unit. Our monthly meeting is usually the first Thursday of the month at the Shrine with social at 5:00 p.m., dinner at 6:00 p.m., and the meeting at 7:00 p.m. If you are interested in checking us out and seeing how makeup can benefit your face come on down.

EL RIAD

by Scribe Pro Tem

ust when you thought it couldn’t get any better we have an offer for you! Due to the popularity of “Ossifer” Burtis’s MSA 2017 Twin Cities Tour of his childhood to young adult haunts and hangouts you may now buy the same on Blu Ray or DVD. Please contact him directly for price and delivery details. On September 14, the Steel Drum hosted our fall golf outing at The River Ridge Golf Course in Garretson, SD. It was a beautiful day with about 24 golf enthusiasts participating and a couple of gents showing up for dinner. The match was won by Illustrious Sir Charlie Brown, PP and his ringer partner Bill Thompson. This resulted in them winning temporary possession of the trophy and buying a round of drinks for the other participants. This was a wonderful bounce back for Illustrious Sir Brown, PP, after his crushing defeat in the putting contest to Illustrious Sir Ed Anstine, PP, at Illustrious Sir Jim “Big Deal” Burma’s Caddyshack Party. When asked for comment Illustrious Sir Brown declined, which was a first. Also of note there were no injuries to either Brown or Thompson as a result of the round. Unlike one of our last winners whose arm ended up in a sling. We would again like to thank Ron Luke of the Garretson Food Center for a wonderful meal. We would also like to thank Mr. Gordie Eitreim for his generous donation to the Shrine. Gordie has made it a practice to support the good work of the Shrine for quite some time through these donations.

On another golf note we want to give a shout out to Steve “Candy” Cain and Rob “Chip” Angerhofer for winning their flight at the El Riad Shrine Cup. Nice job gentlemen.  We had the pleasure of playing for the Augustana Boosters prior to the annual Shrine Football Game. The weather held and we were able to play without incident. We were joined in our performance by Illustrious Sir Past Potentate Rob Joyce on bass drum and Elmer Karl on congas. At half time of the game our very own Rich “Cranium”/ “Whitenoise” Ericsson was honored as Shriner of the Day. Congratulations Rich. The day ended with a sweet overtime victory by the home team. Coming up next for the Pan Heads is Dakota Days in Vermillion SD. The SCAFRA meeting led by our own President “ Marvelous” Lovro on October 19–21. Also coming up is the Fall Ceremonial on November 11 and last but not least a big deal as Illustrious Sir Jim “Big Deal” Burma looks at 50. We will keep you posted on how all this works out.  We will close on a note of sadness as we remember and mourn the passing of our dear friend, Illustrious Sir Pat “Greeter” Colbert, PP. Those of us who were able to attend the 2017 MSA will have the fond memories of “Greeter” and the rest of the Back 40 Boys playing their songs for us at the Friday night oasis. Some of us even got to sing along. Goodbye dear friend, you will surely be missed.

MOTOR CORPS

t’s getting to be that time of year where the days are getting a little cooler and the leaves are starting to turn colors. The Motor Corps season is winding down. Commander Kickstand has put up the “Gone Fishing” sign leaving me to catch you up with everything Motor Corps. So, let’s see where to start. The month of August we made a trip to Bloomington to MSA. We caught a few sprinkles on the way up but we were able to compete the next day before the rain came back. I am proud to announce the Motor Corps brought home all the hardware this year. We won Overall by 2 points, took first in Competition, Obstacle and Slow Course. Commander Kickstand took first in both obstacle and slow course with Aaron Nieman taking second in obstacle. Congrats Aaron and Jerry and the whole competition team of Jerry Hauff, Aaron Neiman, Ken Ward, Jim Slater, Rob Myer, Alex Mehlhaff, Jeff Landborg and Steve Haase. Well done guys!!! I would like to thank all the Motor Corps Members that came up and helped us get ready in record time. A special shout out to the ladies, thank you, thank you!!! We couldn’t have done it without you. The month of September kept us busy as well. On the September 10, we rode over to Minneota, MN, for our last parade of the year. It was a great day for a ride and parade. I think they just redid their streets with fresh black top just for us. We had a little bit of wind on the way home but Jim Slater took us on a nice tour of the lake on the way to lunch. Thank you to all the members that came out and paraded this year with us on your bikes, including riding the trike and driving the ambulance. We had a great year parading!!

by Steve Haase, Pro Tem Commander/Adjutant

On September, 16, we were asked to bring our inflatables out to the Augustana Shrine Football Game. We were happy to do it and support our Honorary Coach, Alex Mehlhaff. We would like to thank Tom, Rob, Jim, John, Bruce, Steve, Alex and Jerry for coming out to the game. Then, on September 23, we held our Annual High Stakes Poker Run. We had Fresh Horses in Harrisburg as our starting and ending stop. We made the rounds to Waddies in Hudson, Hillbillys in Alcestor, The Wheel in Canton, and the Davis Bar. Even though the weatherman tried his best to rain us out, we still managed to sneak it in before the rain hit. We changed our payouts this year a bit. Instead of paying back the top three, we paid the top 10 places. Congrats to all the winners. Reminder to all the members that signed and rode this year, we will be drawing hands at the next meeting to see who the big winners will be. We would like to give a special shout out to Tom Anderson PP for donating the T-shirts and also to Bruce and Sharon Heitman for sitting at a stop and selling 50/50. Thank you Tom, Bruce and Sharon for putting us over the top. Well like I said starting this article, the leaves are turning and hopefully we can get a couple more rides in before it gets too cold and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Let’s keep the wind at our backs, the sun on our faces and two wheels on the ground otherwise you may just get the pickle. So for Commander Kickstand Jerry Hauff (I hope you caught a lot of fish) Vice Commander Ken Ward, Road Captain Jeff Landborg and Members at Large Alex Mehlhaff, Bruce Heitman and Aaron Neiman, we would like to thank everybody for a great summer!!!

he Blast & Cast have their shotguns cleaned and rifles sighted in. We await the upcoming hunting seasons. However, our fishing poles are always ready to be casted. We had our annual fall fishing trip to Waubay at the end of September, but we ran into high winds and rain. This didn’t stop the fish from biting though. A couple of our newest members, Craig Sletten and David Driver were very successful, as well as the fishin’ magician Travis Oehler. The cooks did an outstanding job, thanks Dean Theisen, Rolland and Kevin. We worked the wedding of the year for the OB’s Big Mike. That was a great time, however the OB did not live up to their reputation, if you know what I mean. We were cleaned up and closed by 12:30 a.m. Our upcoming events include the fall pheasant hunt, and of course the second annual CABIN FEVER, in February. If you liked the Sportsman Classic, the Cabin Fever is something you will want to attend. It may be modeled after the Classic but with more of an intimate

CHANTERS

n Sunday, September 10, our long awaited Miss Vicki’s Grand Finale Concert was a wellattended success. The repertoire was fun, toetapping, and very meaningful which emulated the talented Miss Vicki Streifel, for whom we honored. After the concert at Messiah New Hope Lutheran Church, we moved the party over to The Willows Restaurant patio at Willow Run Golf Course. It was meaningful with admittedly a few tears shed at her farewell concert which recognized her 16 years as our accompanist. We appreciate everyone who came out to hear us, honor Vicki, and to offer goodwill to benefit the Twin Cities Shrine Hospital. Chanters in the above picture are: Jim Gould, Kelly Brown, Gary Smith, Doug Schneider, Dick Schlechter, Todd Smith, Allen Brown, Bob Uecker, Doug Magnus, Dan Jones, Rocky Hayes, Charlie Brown, PP, Dave Bangasser, John Wightman, Bill Anderson, Mark Dunn, David Vrooman, Jack Weibel, PP, Brad Vostad, Nate Headley, Terry Engelland, and Director Del Hubers with Accompanist Vicki Streifel. Then, on October 6, the Sioux Falls Scottish Rite asked the Chanters to sing at their barbecue. At the direction of Del Hubers and our new accompanist, Mary Michaels, we provided 16

several songs as background music to the barbecue diners. Coming up on Veterans Day, November 11, as always the Chanters will be a part of the ritual as new nobles are created. Please also save the date for our annual Voices of the Season Concert located at First Congregational Church in Sioux Falls on November 19 at 4:00 p.m. In closing, we would like to join other brothers in mentioning the unfortunate passing of Illustrious Sir Pat “Greeter” Colbert, PP. Knowing him was certainly an honor and blessing. Those in attendance at his standing room only funeral got to see how many loved ones cherished his legacy and we all joined in the life celebration.

BETHEL #1

ethel #1 has been a busy group this month! The ladies of the Nile were kind enough to allow us a booth at their craft fair. The girls sold Christmas ornaments and snowmen. They did a great job promoting themselves and the Job’s Daughters at the fair. The Nile ladies had a great showing of vendors and we appreciated the invitation to participate.   We also had the opportunity to help at the Scottish Rite BBQ. The girls assisted on Friday night and they kept busy the entire evening! Thank you, Scottish Rite, for the invitation to help at the BBQ. The girls had a great night and greatly enjoyed your food, especially the dessert table!  After the BBQ the girls headed out for a sleepover. We had crafts, movies, tons of food, some karaoke and a little bit of sleep! We also have initiation and a kids Halloween party planned for October. The girls are busy planning for November and December activities.  Parents and Grandparents – the girls are planning a Christmas party for kids (ages 2-11) on December 16, from 5–10 p.m. at the Masonic Center.  More details to come but mark your calendars now for a night out!  Regular meetings are the second and fourth Sundays of the month at 2 p.m. in the Masonic Center, all are welcome!

EL RIAD

CLASSIE AUTOS

Name: Gerard Faini Make/Model: 1968 Ford Mustang Convertible Engine/specs? I went out and looked under the hood, it is huge! Almost fills up the entire compartment! How long have I owned it? 4 years How did I come across it? For years, I have been looking for the right car. I wanted one that fit my personality. It had to be sporty and a convertible. Sassy, cool, fun, the right color, not too big, not too small, and one my wife enjoyed also. A friend of mine whom I have known for 25 plus years posted it on his Facebook page since he wanted to sell his car that is no longer used. I never even knew he had one, so I texted him, SOLD is all I said on the message. The best thing about the Classie? It is topless, if you have a car that you only drive in the summer why not. The car is a chick magnet, guys rule and girls drool. That is why my wife loves it also, she thinks all the guys giving us the thumbs up and yelling “wow, nice ride” is because she is in the car with me. (OK she may be right but don’t tell her.) The worst thing about the car? It is not a car that will do snow, or see the cold, ice, sleet, hail, (been caught in a light rain only once). It has to hibernate over the winter, and you thought only bears did that! First Classie Car? Yes this is my first classic car, I have another convertible but it is not a Classie, yet! What made you decide to join the Classie Autos? When I first joined El Riad Shrine, I visited every group to find a EL RIAD SHRINE • Sioux Falls, South Dakota

by Aaron Zahn, Secretary

good fit for me. I thought it was a car club for only vintage cars. After the first meeting I was visiting with a group of the members while having a soda pop! The group asked me what kind of car I had, I stepped back and said I do not have an old car just a BMW convertible. That’s all you need, a gentleman whom I have never known was in this group, Jim Jorgensen, asked me what is under the hood. I realized there was no bluffing about what I knew about cars, so I told them as it was, “You know, I don’t know how many horses are hidden in their but when I hit the gas it goes like heck, 120 MPH before I hit the interstate and I like to feel the speed”. Right at that moment, Jim threw up his hands and while walking away said “another young kid with no respect for the law!” Shoot, I said to the group, I guess that was not good to say. They all laughed, but don’t worry about Jim, he is an ex-highway patrol officer. Jim and I enjoyed many visits, and while traveling I always passed him going at least 90 just to give him a laugh. It is a good group of guys, everyone one of them. I did not need to have a fancy car, nor know anything about cars other than respect what they are and enjoy them. I must say to this day, no one will let me drive their car in a parade. I still think it goes back to thinking I would spin their tires and race them to the event.  My advise to anyone looking to buy a car, take your time and the right car for you will pop up when you least expect it. 35

$100 MILLION DOLLAR CLUB

The $100 Million Dollar Club is a way for Shriners and non-Shriners alike to provide a gift of hope for a child in need. It’s an excellent opportunity to personally participate in the “World’s Greatest Philanthropy” — Shriners Hospitals for Children. The Shriners operate 22 hospitals in North America dedicated to treating children with orthopedic problems and burn injuries. There are 18 orthopedic hospitals, three burn hospitals and one Shriners Hospital that provides orthopedic, burn care and spinal cord injury care. All care and services provided by Shriners Hospitals are totally without cost to the patient or family. Since the founding of Shriners Hospitals in 1922, about $5.5 billion has been spent to provide quality and compassionate medical care to more than 675,000 children with orthopedic problems, severe burn injuries or spinal cord injuries. Most of these services are paid for by the Shriners Hospitals for Children Endowment Fund. Without this fund, Shriners Hospitals would not be able to ensure optimum and compassionate patient care. In order to meet the needs of thousands of children in need of the expert care Shriners Hospitals provide, the endowment fund must continue to grow during these times of increasing cost of medical care. Since approximately 95 percent of the annual Shriners Hospitals for Children operating budget will be spent in direct support of the 22 hospitals, your gift to its endowment fund is a gift to one of the world’s “purest” philanthropies.

HAPPY VETERANS DAY


Get Ahead of the Scoliosis Curve Scoliosis is a musculoskeletal disorder that causes an abnormal curvature of the spine or backbone, sometimes resembling an “S” or a “C,” rather than a straight line. There are different types of scoliosis, including:

As children near the end of their growth period, the specific indicators for bracing will depend upon how the curve affects their physical appearance, if the curve is getting worse and the size of the curve.

Idiopathic scoliosis–the most common type. The cause is unknown; generally the condition occurs in children after the age of 10. Girls have a greater likelihood to develop idiopathic scoliosis.

Surgical Options There are several surgical options, including fusion and fusionless techniques that use a variety of different implant options.

Juvenile idiopathic scoliosis–affects children between the ages of 3 and 10.

EARLY DETECTION IS KEY

Infantile idiopathic scoliosis–occurs in children younger than age 3.

SYMPTOMS OF SCOLIOSIS Because scoliosis can be hereditary, experts recommend children who have a parent or sibling diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis receive regular checkups for early detection. Children and teens with scoliosis rarely exhibit symptoms and sometimes the condition is not obvious until the curvature of the spine becomes severe. You may notice that your child’s clothes are not fitting correctly or that hems are not hanging evenly. In some cases, your child’s spine may appear crooked or their ribs may protrude. Common indicators to watch for include: •

One shoulder may appear higher than the other.

One shoulder blade may stick out farther than the other.

One hip may appear higher than the other.

The child’s head is not properly centered over their body.

When the child bends from the waist, the ribs on one side are higher.

The waistline may appear flat on one side.

As there is often no known cause for scoliosis, early detection is the best way to prevent curve progression. To help with this, the orthopaedic specialists at Shriners Hospitals for Children developed the new app, SpineScreen. The SpineScreen app allows you to perform a preliminary spine check on your child, in the comfort and privacy of your own home. It detects abnormal curves when the phone is moved along a child’s back, giving parents a quick way to routinely monitor their child’s spine. As this is strictly an initial check, it should be followed up by a doctor’s examination to determine if your child has scoliosis. If your child does have scoliosis, Shriners Hospitals for Children may be able to help. Shriners Hospitals for Children is a trusted leader in scoliosis care, with comprehensive scoliosis treatment options available at 20 of its locations in North America. To learn more about scoliosis, treatment options available and to download the SpineScreen app, please visit

SCOLIOSIS TREATMENTS OFFERED Shriners Hospitals for Children® offers a wide range of treatment options for scoliosis, tailored to the needs of each individual patient, including: Observation If the idiopathic curve is less than 25 degrees, physicians observe patients every four to six months while they are growing. Often, no treatment is needed. Bracing Most physicians recommend a patient be fitted for a brace to prevent a curve from worsening when the patient meets the following criteria: •

The child is still growing and has an idiopathic curve greater than 25 degrees.

The child is expected to have significant growth and has an idiopathic curve between 20 and 40 degrees.

The child is a female and has not had her first menstrual cycle.

The child is still growing and shows an idiopathic curve between 20 and 29 degrees and is not improving.

We have given the Twin Cities Hospital $255,000 so far. The net could exceed last year’s total of $25,000 and that 100% of the net proceeds will be sent to the Twin Cities Hospital. He said he plans on chairing the event for the next few years and that he believes there is great potential to raise additional money in the future years.

FIFE & DRUM

ig baby news to start off this month’s report as our beloved leader “Admiral” Darrell Griggs and his Lady Jessica announce the birth of their third son, Connor Weston in the wee morning hours of September 15. Connor clocked in at hefty 9 lbs., 8 ozs. Lady Jessica, baby Connor, and proud papa Darrell all doing well. There was literally no time to spare as Lady Jessica delivered John and Sherry Acher’s fifth grandchild 30 minutes after arriving at the hospital! Our September was pretty terrific as we opened the month with Mike “Mofo” Fitzgerald and his Lady Lorna hosting their annual Fife family garden party on the September 8. They have such a beautiful back yard and the weather was perfect. That combination provided a great foundation for the food and refreshing beverage consumption that ensued. Was great to see all the younger kids playing in the yard and all the older kids doing what they do best, eating, drinking, and having a fun time. The turnout was awesome and a big thank you to our hosts and officers for a fabulous party! And while the Shrine Game weather was a bit sour, it did not deter our football selling efforts.  Once again, the Archer Clan was primarily responsible for selling all the footballs at $5 each, raising round $2,400 for the Hospital. We owe everyone that helped a big thank you for making this possible.   We ended the month with our Second Annual Rose Cup in honor of our beloved past Brigadier and El Riad Potentate, Keith Rose. Again, perfect weather and a great turnout marked this super fun time. Making it even more special was Ed Anstine celebrating his 77th birthday that day. Way to go Ed! The big story of the tourney was Craig “Roscoe” Ross sinking an 80-foot birdie putt on the final hole to secure a one shot victory for his team, comprised of

Tim Clarke, Roscoe, Greg Kerska, and Bruce Norton. A team selfie accompanies this article showing the happy group. Also thanks to the Ladies that participated with a special shout out to Kay Rose. We celebrated our post tourney time together with a group family supper and refreshing beverages at the Shrine. Also loved sharing the many Keith Rose memories we all have. Among many other things, he was a legendary joke teller and we made sure to recite a few of his favorites. This event along with so many other activities we have is what makes being part of the Fife and Drum so special! We have our big Parade of Bands appearance coming up the first weekend in October with several of our group heading to Las Vegas to help with the Shriner’s Open the first weekend in November. Look forward to reporting on both those events in the next Cactus. As our fearless leader Admiral Darrell Griggs is fond of saying, “fair winds and following seas to all!”
