“Angel Fund” For several years, Sahib Shriners had what was referred to as an “Angel Fund’ to assist nobles who were unable to pay their dues because of health, financial or age related issues. The “Angel Fund” remitted the necessary funds to keep them as current members, and to avoid suspension due to nonpayment of Shrine dues. This fund has been fully exhausted and there is no place in our budget to replenish the fund. This is where you can lend a helping hand to a fellow Shrine Mason, if he is in good standing within his Blue Lodge. For your contribution of $20, you can keep one delinquent member from being removed from our membership rolls for another year pending his status as a Master Mason. You can personally select a member from the current delinquent list, or we will do it for you. Please remember these nobles in need of a helping hand. Stop by the office and be responsible for keeping a fellow Shriner on the active list. 

Potentate’s notes

Here we go again. The toughest part of this job is trying to see into the future! It is really hard to do, but we will give it another try. In the past: Sandy and I missed Pancake Breakfast service for the second time in five years as we were representing Sahib at Mahi Shriners. These several Potentate’s Balls are an integral and necessary part of a Divan member’s training and requirements. It is there that the friendships and information connections are made that will benefit our Sahib for years to come. I point out that Sahib pays only for one-night’s stay for the Potentate and no payments for any other Divan member in attendance. As you may have heard, PP Tom Millaway and Lady Kay were in a horrendous auto accident, but thanks to the Supreme Being, came out with minor but serious damage. To finish this note, they had been responsible for our Sahib Derby. First Lady Sandy stepped up and in twelve days put together a great evening. She reached out to many Shriners and ladies who responded and gave her a great deal of support and manpower, far too many to mention here! Our racers, over a hundred, had a great time. I believe you may see this again next year! When I started this year, I had a number of goals to accomplish for Sahib: Resolve the restaurant disturbances … Done! Catch up on delayed maintenance … Underway Find new sources of income to support Sahib … Underway Start a major cleanup … Underway Improve janitorial services … Done! Have some fun … Still in progress! Enough for now. I know you are getting weary of my ramblings, but you can always have faith in what I say!

Yours in the Faith, Carroll G. Scribner Sahib Potentate 2016

Recorder’s notes by Ed Firquin, sahib3@juno.com

J

une makes half of 2016 history. Many things have occurred at your Shrine with nobles and the members of the community evolved in using the facility. The Divan continues to consider new ideas for social activities of interest for generating income. All nobles are aware that membership is declining and income must continue to be produced. With this in mind, your Divan along with High Priest and Prophet Dell Hyland’s hard work, have booked a music concert for July 2. A tribute show “The Boss Project” the music of “The Boss, Bruce Springsteen” is scheduled. The annual boat races will be in Sarasota and tickets are being sold at Brown Paper Tickets. Go to the website www.brownpapertickets.com to purchase tickets. This will be an electrifying evening of Bruce Springsteen’s brand of rock music.

The Divan will continue to explore new and exciting events to produce income for Sahib and its members. Looking ahead and being discussed are “Vegas” type musicals, Big Band Music concerts and continuing live music events. If you have ideas and think it can provide social interest, cause fun and income, please talk with a Divan member. Sahib will be closed for staff vacations and Imperial Session in Tampa from July 3rd through July 17th. The only activity will be Tuesday Bingo on July 5th and July 12th, so please make note of the dates. There will be no “Reporter” for the month of July to give everyone and my Lady Wanda a break. Remember that child within and I will see you around Sahib. 

Chief Rabban’s notes by Bill Balkwill, balkwill@verizon.net

W

e just experienced another huge success with the 34th Annual Sahib Shrine Golf Tournament. The tournament was held at Bobby Jones Golf Course and there was perfect weather... thank goodness! Lady Gail along with the Golf Committee - Noble John Sholtis, Noble Bob Sanders, Recorder Ed Firquin, Noble Bill Prinkey, Chairman Tom Cunningham and I want to give a personal thank you to all that came and helped. That also includes Lady Norma Cunningham, Lady Donna LaBell, Lady Beatty Shipley, Lady Marylou Ellis, Lady Peggy Cloutier, Assistant Rabban Del Rawlinson and Lady Juanita, Chief Executive Aide Bill Athas and Lady Lucy, Chief Aide Dave Joly, Oriental Guide Bruce Porter, 1st Ceremonial Master Gene Marinelli and Lady Jeannie, 2nd Ceremonial Master Jules Simon and Lady Mindy. In addition, the cooks, Noble David Bruce, Noble Jack Watson, Noble Jim Fahey, Noble Sam Cohen, Noble Hank Nofsker, Noble Jim Koehler, Noble Chuck Sterner, Linda Glendening, all my neighbors who helped put the goody bags together, Manager Noble Ed Shauan, and bartender Melanie Easterling. I hope I didn’t forget any volunteers. It would not have been such a success without all of you! The results of all the efforts of our nobles, ladies, business donations, volunteers, sponsors, hole sponsors and golfers were amazing! For a

one-day event we had a fundraising total of $3,000 and this could not have been achieved without the efforts of many generous people! We want to recognize and thank our major sponsors. This included Gulf Coast Distributors Budweiser (beer donated for luncheon and a golf bag donated). John Saputo continues to be an ongoing supporter of our Shrine. Sarasota Trophy and Awards, Inc. etched all the glassware (Ken Levanti is a continual supporter of Shriners). Ruth Chris Steak House, Longhorn Steak House, Red Lobster and SRQ Pizza (shout out to John Tatum... every golfer was given a certificate for a free small pizza!). This year golfers walked away with 60 prizes, including a rare collection of Bourbon Whiskey canisters from the Shipley’s. Where else can you golf in a fun tournament for $65? In this “Reporter” there are various pictures from the tournament and our winning team photos. Don’t forget to thank Editor Ed Firquin and Lady Wanda for the fine work they do creating “The Reporter.” Gail and I took a break and went to North Carolina and got back in time to attend the Morocco Ball in Jacksonville. The Fireballs were making the walls shake! Good time was had by all. We were sporting our western Fireball shirts that Past Potentate Dale LaBell and Lady Donna gave us. Remember, support the Shrine and keep a child in your heart. 

une edition of “The Reporter” - with no publication in July, your humble secretary gets a breather from preparing this monthly column. But, it also means this month’s column from the Motor Corps will include items of interest for the next two months plus some news on recent Motor Corps activities. The most exciting news to report is that we have a winner of our Booze Wagon. The drawing was held on Sunday, May 1 at the Pancake Breakfast. The winner of this year’s Booze Wagon is Critch from Massachusetts. He is a snowbird and will pick up his winnings in the fall. Thanks to everyone that participated in this year’s raffle. Although the Florida Shrine Association meeting was canceled this year, the Florida Association of Shrine Motor Corps (FASMC) did meet the first weekend in May. Competitions were held in both the two-wheel and three-wheel (trike) categories. A number of our members attended and participated in the competitions. Motor Corps President John Hubbard (Hotrod) is 1st Vice President of FASMC. The Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association’s 4th Annual Charity Concert was held at Sahib Shriners on May 14. The show was “The Long Run” the ultimate Eagles Tribute show. The concert was enjoyed by those who attended and a special thanks to all Motor Corps members, who are also Widows Sons members, that helped out with the event. Proceeds from the concert help support local charities. Our spring trip to Murphy, North Carolina was

held from Thursday - Sunday, May 19-22, 2016. We had a good showing and enjoyed some great rides. The 2016 Shrine Imperial Session is being held in Tampa. There is a parade scheduled during the event and several of our members from the Motor Corps expect to participate. We will have more details in the August “Reporter.” Bikerbilly Thursday night dinners will be available starting July 21. This means we will only be filling in for the Hillbillies for six weeks instead of seven weeks as in previous years. Serving time is from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. Instead of the Hillbilly buffet, the Motor Corps will be serving up their famous burgers, onion rings, and maybe even some battered mushrooms, plus a number of other items on our menu. Come out and join us. We have seven Motor Corps members and their ladies with birthdays in June and July. June birthdays include Juanita Rawlinson on the 5th, Suzy Lucas (Cream Cheese) on the 9th and Gina Bracken (GS) on the 25th. July birthdays include Darren Bracken (Schmoozer) on the 5th, John Hubbard (Hotrod) on the 7th, Kathy Galanti on the 14th and Wally Lacey (Red Dog) on the 28th. We also have two members and their ladies with anniversaries during those same months. June anniversary is Wally Lacey (Red Dog) and Lady Connie (Cooter) on the 30th. July anniversary is Tony Galanti (G) and Lady Kathy on the 31st. 

ll of our sno-nobles are now summering in that never-never land known as “up north” where ever that is? We hope all had a safe journey and we will look forward to your return. Since your scribe is not attending too many club events these days, it is difficult to report with any accuracy on the goings on. Still no volunteers to carry on, hello - anybody out there? April has particular significance for my Lady Kitty’s family as her grandmother and her sister-in-law were traveling on the RMS Titanic from Southampton, England to New York when the ship hit an iceberg and sank. Both ladies survived. May birthday nobles listed in “The Reporter” are Bill Schultz, John (Jock?) Robertson, Dick Hartley, Art Stika. Another year older but hopefully not deeper in debt as Tennessee Ernie sang. Don’t forget your free libation in the temple lounge. The month of May could possibly be called Military Month for the following reasons: May 6 Military Spouses Day, May 8 V-E Day declared, May 15 Women’s Army Corps founded, May 21 Armed Forces Day, May 22 National Maritime Day and May 30 Memorial Day, originally November 11, which used to be Armistice Day to celebrate the end of WWI, the war to end all wars. Must have been the oxymoron of the time. Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veteran’s Day, same day in November. Forgot to mention one of the greatest feats of WWII that took place April 18, 1942 - the Doolittle raid on Tokyo. Did not do much damage, but sure woke

the Japs up to the fact they were vulnerable. Bet you don’t remember this, on April 21, 1918, presumably the day the Red Baron (Manfred Von Richthofen) was shot down and killed, and on June 6, 1944, D-Day, the greatest invasion force ever assembled in the history of the world to once again liberate Europe. We have no WWI veterans in North Port Shrine Club, but we do have veterans from the next big one WWII. Some have entered the unseen Temple: Nobles Joe Harrington crew chief USN, B. John Ross Major USAAF, L. (Doc) Schaeferle MD Major USA. Those remaining: Larry Hedmark USN, Dick Holmes Staff Sergeant USAAF, Lowell McCarty T5 USA, Bill Schultz Captain USAAF and Bill Shipley crew chief USAAF. Hopefully, I have the information correct. The rest of our veterans represent the conflicts in Korea, Vietnam and others.

Says the company CEO, “since heavier passengers use up more fuel there is no doubt in my mind that this is the concept of the future.” Put down that candy bar!

SHRINE UNIT NEWS Oriental Band by Jim Austin, jau1060866@aol.com

N

o question about it, some days our weather gets a little hot. I do not think it has been too bad yet, but sure feels like it might get fairly warm sometime this summer. Did you folks know that the area we live in here, both Manatee and Sarasota Counties were one of the first areas in the state picked by the early Indian tribes for the weather. They thought that this was the safest place to be because the rains were gentle, hurricanes almost non-existent and with almost no tornadoes or high winds. If you think about it, they have been right on almost all counts. My wife, Lady Dixie, and I settled here back in 1971 and we have yet to see anything in the way of weather that was not much worse in the state of our birth, which was Illinois. We are very happy we came, and cannot think of anyplace else we would rather be. We had a summer place on a mountain top in Arizona until last December when we sold it. Winters there (on the mountain) get very cold, but for a summer place, it was great. When we decided to get rid of one of the houses, there was not any doubt expressed about which one we could keep. Enough about weather.

We, the Oriental Band, continue to prepare for the Imperial Session in Tampa over the fourth of July. Before that, the band expressed a desire to play out at Lakewood Ranch the end of May. We believe that at least one more of our units have said they would join us for a short parade. As the folks out that way seem to be energized, it may turn out to be fun. Hope so. On another subject, we have gained another new member. James Austin has joined us and is learning to play the gong. James is my eldest son, and it is a pleasure to have him join us. Believe me, the gong is not simple to play, as we use it to signal the horns’ entrance into our various tunes, as well as an exclamation sound to point out areas we want our audiences to notice. It sometimes takes months to get the instrument where you have complete control over it. James says he is liking it - time will tell. If I understand correctly, there will be no “Reporter” in July, so will talk to you again in August. Please have a great summer and remember that it is just as hot in every state north of here - there is no place to go. 

High Priest & Prophet’s notes by Delbert Hyland, hyland29@msn.com

W

e hope that this finds everyone doing great. As we roll into summer we have many great events coming up to try to help with fundraising and membership. We also hope that the nobility will get behind these events and share them with your friends and family and try to invite someone that would make a good Mason and Shriner and to show them how we have fun. This as you all know is a must for us to continue to evolve and create new programs for younger generations and children. These are all areas that we are focused on and trying to improve. We have a wonderful and devoted membership here at Sahib, but we are not getting any younger and we must start outrunning the Black Camel. The most important part of this challenge is to complete it in time to save the history and knowledge that each of you possess. Try to take a new or young guy under

your wing and share that knowledge with them, this is how we continue our legacy. For all of you that came out to the Sahib Derby, we know you had a great time just as we did. This event shows that there is life in Sahib and we just need to add a few new lights to the group and continue to try new things and ideas. We thank you all again for your support and please check us out on Facebook as we are getting events posted regularly. If you do not know how to use Facebook or Twitter, contact me and we will set you up. It has been a great year so far with many wonderful events, let’s all keep up the great work and we will see you at “The Boss Project” a tribute concert featuring Bruce Springsteen’s music on July 2 at Sahib Shriners. Do not miss it! Tickets are going fast on www.brownpaperbag.com. 

Masonic Digest Scottish Rite by Casey A. Fletcher, KCCH, cfletcher@palletone.com

O

ur Spring Reunion in April was well-attended and we welcomed about twenty brothers into the Rite. A highlight of the Reunion was the conferral of the 31st Degree, Inspector Inquisitor or Initiate of the Egyptian Mysteries. (Many Scottish Rite Degrees have two names. Numbering the degrees simply helps keep track of them and does not necessarily denote any rank or privilege.) The plot of the 31st Degree is derived from the Book of the Dead. Generically, the Book of the Dead refers to multiple ancient papyrus scrolls written in Egypt about 3,500 years ago, from about 1700 BCE to about 1200 BCE. They include discourses about funeral rites, justice, right conduct and the afterlife. Written in hieroglyphics, the scrolls were discovered by Europeans during the Middle Ages in coffins and burial chambers. Some modern scholars suggest a better title for the scrolls should be something like “Coming Forth into the Light.” That translation, “Coming Forth into the Light,” has a Masonic ring to it. It might remind us of a scene at the brow of a small hill. Many of the scrolls include scenes in which a departed soul is examined and ultimately judged by Egyptian deities. The 31st Degree draws upon and adapts several versions of the examination. The degree is quite the contrast with other Masonic Degrees in which our principal allegories are the two Temples of Jerusalem. In one version of the examination, the gods begin by saying to the soul, in effect, “make your case. Convince us that you are pure and noble; fit and worthy.” So, the soul gives it his best shot. He offers positive affirmations of his deeds, character and conduct - a defense and explanation of his life. He has obeyed the laws, lived properly and soberly; not neglected the worship of the gods, honored contracts; paid debts, taxes and tributes;

undertaken only lawful usury, committed no crimes; harmed or oppressed no man; he has contributed to charity; he has followed the rules and performed his prescribed duties. He has been fair in all his dealings. And the response of the gods? In effect, they say, “is that it? You have done your duty - but we cannot help but notice that you merely refrained from doing unlawful activities and that you did absolutely nothing more than is expected of any decent human being.” Ouch! The message of both the degree and the scrolls can send us on a course of self-examination. The Book of the Dead and the degree remind us, indeed admonish us, that adherence to ethical codes, commandments, civil regulations, moral creeds and even Masonic obligations, are just a starting point they are a minimum standard. We should not expect any medals, certificates or jewels for simply doing what is expected of us. Performance of our duty, whatever we perceive it to be, is a minimum standard for life. The Book of the Dead and the 31st Degree therefore raise the bar for our conduct. They challenge us to find the will, strength, and fortitude to be “eager to do more than strict duty requires,” that we might rise up from the brow of that small hill and “Come Forth into the Light of Day.” The Scottish Rite’s Degrees will next be conferred on October 29 and November 5. Petitions are available at http://tampascottishrite.org. The Valley of Tampa regularly meets at its Center in Tampa on the second Monday of each month. Our next meeting is June 13 and celebrates Flag Day. Dinner begins at 6:00 p.m. followed by patriotic and musical programs at 7:00 p.m. The public is welcome to attend. Casey Fletcher is Past Master of Tuscan Lodge No. 6 in Bartow, Florida. A trip to Egypt is on his bucket list; but he is not so sure about it now. 

A

fter a lengthy trip to St. Louis to be with our daughter during her surgery and afterward, at the April meeting I was installed as Queen of Nyla Temple No. 152. To all the officers and ladies of the household, thank you for having faith in me to elect me as your Queen for the ensuing year. A new slate of officers were installed. Congratulations to each and every one and also to all the appointed officers. Two new Princesses were initiated at the same meeting. Congratulations and remember the phrase “the more you put into it, the more you

get out of it.” With Nile, this is certainly true. No one member of an organization can do anything without the help of all the other members. It takes a team to get things done. So, if each one of the members will bring in someone new, this temple will thrive. If you have been a member in the past, we welcome you back. Contact me or our Recorder Donna Duffey. If you are a member of another temple, come join us. We are dark in June, July and August, but come September we will be ready to get to work for Daughters of the Nile and our Shriners Hospitals for Children. 

Shriners Hospitals for Children Collection Boxes What are they? A plastic cube with a slot in the top. What are the boxes for? To help collect donations, money for our Shriners Hospitals for Children to help relieve the pressure from the Hospital Days Fund Drive. Where are the boxes to be? In any store or business, preferably near a cash register. Within eyesight of customers making it easy for them to put their change in the box. When are the boxes to be used? All year round, so our friends can donate small amounts of cash at any time. As most of you know, many businesses have some kind of collection boxes on their counters, so why not one of ours? Call the Sahib Office at 366-4449 if you can arrange a placement.

Pull Tabs for Shriners Hospitals

The Ladies of Sar-I Court started in 1992 collecting and donating aluminum pull-tabs to the “Wheel Chair Repair Fund.” As of January 31, 2016, they have collected 108,960 lbs., for a total of $56,646.36 for the Shriners Hospital for Children in Tampa. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on PULL TABS 1. Why not collect the whole can? Collecting complete cans would require a great deal more storage space. You should go ahead and recycle the rest of the can in the normal way, in the dumpster behind Sahib. 2. How many tabs in a pound? 1,267. 3. How many tabs will a gallon milk jug hold? About 5 pounds worth. 4. How does it work and where does the money go? The tabs are delivered to the Sahib office (or almost any Sahib club/unit location) and then taken to the recycling center. The money netted from recycling goes directly into the “Wheel Chair Repair Fund” at the Tampa Shriners Hospital for Children. Call:

Laura Burgess Marylou Ellis Chickie Johnson Connie Lawson

(941) 758-9196 or (941) 484-0089 or (941) 966-2678 or (941) 758-8274 or

Help us collect TABS! It’s easy and it’s fun! Put out a milk jug at every picnic or party! Change is inevitable, Growth is optional!
