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 non-payment 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 Message

Nobles and ladies, We apologize for not having a “Reporter” for June due to our Recorder and Editor-in-Chief having a medical issue which is all taken care of. Please, we want to wish him well and a quick recovery as we get back on track. Your elected officers attended the July Imperial Session and we had a rather heavy agenda of legislation to decide. We will have a full report for you in the September edition. I’m proud of our Parade Unit’s Marshal, Provost Guards, Legion of Honor, Clowns, Model Ts, Venice Key Stone Kops, North Port Shrine Club, Hillbilly Clan, Hospital Transportation Roadrunners and the Sahib Divan. Sahib won Grand Champion for 2017’s Arcadia Rodeo Parade. Great job! Soon, our Shrine will have to take a hard look at the possibility of reorganizing fundraisers and the restaurant. We have had to overcome a $150,000 deficit from 2016 budget loss and with our membership decreasing and lack of participation in the restaurant, this equates to a further loss of revenue. We must find other outside means to fund our organization to be able to continue to operate. This is a difficult and emotional decision for all of us and is not taken lightly. A committee is forming to look at a lot of options for the future of Sahib Shrine. You will get a budget report at the Stated Meeting in August. We have taken a different approach in the kitchen and it has taken a few months to get it back in order. Noble Sam Chavers has been volunteering to run the kitchen with a couple of cooks and we could use some extra help in the kitchen on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursday’s luncheons and Friday night dinners. If you haven’t noticed, the food has gotten a whole lot better. Our hats go off to all those that have helped - the kitchen, wait staff and bartenders. The Sahib Shrine Gun Raffle is back on again because Mrs. Titus won and chose the $1,000 in cash. Tickets are $20 each. Remember, this is a one-of-a-kind rifle with the Sahib 35th Anniversary logo on the stock of the gun or win $1,000 in cash. See an aide or Divan member for tickets. Let’s work together to build a better, stronger Sahib Shrine in 2017! Remember to support your Shrine and keep a child in your heart! Fraternally Yours, William “Bill” Balkwill Sahib Potentate 2017

xcerpts from: “A Dream That Became a Reality” by Ill. Sir Howard D. Noble, Past Potentate. It began as the Sarasota Shrine Club and it was the largest and most active club under the jurisdiction of Egypt Temple. The membership had grown to over 800. It became difficult to find restaurants to accommodate regular Thursday Luncheons, the Lady’s Day events, and dinner dances. A group of nobles contributed enough money to buy a piece of land out in the “boondocks” of Sarasota for $13,000, hoping to one day have their own facility. The land sat idle for several years because of lack of money to build. Then the effort came to life. We had plans drawn and raised enough money to start through

bonds, but our “Mother Temple – Egypt” opposed the plan and the Imperial Council made us refund the bond money because we would be starting with a large, long term obligation. We started over and obtained a sizable amount through donations. In addition, we raised the rest necessary to start construction through loans from members against notes payable on call. To protect the building from being seized by Egypt at any time, (should we fail), the Shriners Hospitals for Children were made our beneficiary. Many of the nobles eventually donated their notes to the Building Fund. Others were reimbursed and the debt wiped out. My next article I write will be, “How we became a Shrine.” 

T

he Manatee Shrine Club has been dark for the summer, but as of September 1, it is open and ready for an interesting and educational fall season of activities. The following is a brief review of the April and May meetings prior to the summer break. The April meeting, like the meeting in March, was a joint one with twenty-seven men and women enjoying our luncheon activities. Our guest speaker was Wanda Odum, Activities Director, of the Florida Masonic Home located in St. Petersburg, Florida. Her presentation generated many questions and an interest in organizing a future social trip to visit the home. April had two social events. One was a luncheon cruise on the Marina Jack II. Twenty-four members and guests enjoyed the 1.5 hours cruise on beautiful Sarasota Bay and a wonderful buffet lunch. For the second social, the club hosted the April 11th Birthday/Anniversary Dinner Dance at the Shrine. The ladies of the club decorated the tables with spring flowers and Easter candies. The MSC baseball committee of Nobles Ron LeVene, Jim Smith and Connie Jacobi PP informed the members that nearly $20,000 has been earned for our volunteer work at LECOM Park. Some of that money was donated to the Shrine to help improve food service with the purchase of an ice machine and a large storage freezer. Additional funds went to purchase lamp bulbs for the overhead projector. A baseball appreciation dinner is planned for October to recognize the volunteer efforts of our members. The dinner will be for all MSC members who have worked at the park either in the past or the current year. The club members were asked at the April meeting to consider supporting student cadets

at Sarasota Military Academy (SMA) in their trip to Washington, D.C. to participate in the Junior State of America program. This program is a high school student-led organization that strives to teach the youth of our nation about civic duty, community responsibility and patriotism. Individual donations garnered nearly $78 from the members and nearly $200 from board members. Special thanks go to Paul Kline who donated his 50/50 winnings to the SMA program. The May 5th meeting was the last before the summer break (June - August). I was the speaker and my topic was the Presidency of Harry S. Truman and a recognition of Victory over Japan (V-J) Day and the Kissing Sailor mystery. Following the summer break, our monthly meeting is scheduled for Friday, September 1. It will be interesting in that we will meet at Sahib Shriners beginning at 11:00 a.m. for our social and 12:00 noon for lunch. The Board of Directors will meet at 9:30 a.m. We will meet at the Shrine due to the renovations scheduled at the Peridia Country Club, our normal meeting place. Please make your meal reservations with Russell Sexton at drsexton45@gmail.com or (941) 773-7280. Cutoff date is always the Friday before the meeting. Payment and meal tickets will be at the door. No cancellations later than 72 hours before the luncheon. The speaker planned for the September meeting is a member of the Divan who will talk on the health and opportunities ahead for Sahib Shrine. The social planned for September is a visit to the Florida Aquarium in Tampa along with a Dolphin Cruise on Tampa Bay. Reservations for the social will be emailed to all members in August. 

Motor Corps Shrine Club Giles Light (G-man), Secretary, glightfl@yahoo.com

S

eems like it’s been a while since the last edition of “The Reporter.” So hopefully this column will bring you up-to-date on what has been happening in the motorcycle world. First bit of news is on the personnel side. With the resignation of our vice president, the Motor Corps elected a new veep at our April meeting, Dave Mashia (OD). Dave will serve out the remainder of the term for 2017. We also have a new member as of our June meeting. Donnie Kidwell (Chubby) joined the Motor Corps. He rides a black Harley Davidson motorcycle, so look for him when we parade. At our June meeting, we were visited by Illustrious Sir Bill Balkwill. The Potentate brought us up-to-date on numerous issues at Sahib. He also discussed several potential fundraisers for our club in the future. We were happy to have him at our meeting and appreciate it that he came with several libations in hand. Traditionally, the Motor Corps has hosted the August Birthday/Anniversary Dinner Dance (BADD). This year is no exception, but the theme has changed slightly. This August it’s “Summertime Cruzin.” The date is Tuesday, August 8th, but cutoff for reservations is the previous Thursday, August 3rd. We’d like to encourage all readers to mark their calendars. Musical entertainment is by Peter Mueller. And, we have two great choices of meal entrees, Rib Eye Steak or Baked Chicken Marsala, mashed potato, fresh salad, vegetable, rolls, and dessert plus coffee or tea. There’s also something else worthy of note. No coats or ties for this event! Preferred (i.e. suggested) dress for men is Hawaiian or Guayabera shirts and slacks or dressy summer casual; for women, the dress is commensurate attire. (Several Motor Corps members will be wearing black Guayabera shirts.) But, do plan to wear your fez. We will have one of our Shrine white bikes in the lobby to welcome you that evening. So, make your reservations with Marylou. See you there! Our Bikerbilly dinners began on Thursday, July 20th. They will run seven weeks through August 31. Motor Corps members and their ladies give the Hillbilly Shrine Club a summer break. If you haven’t tried our Bikerbilly dinners, you have several more weeks to come out on Thursday

nights. We’re sure you’ll enjoy our famous burgers, onion rings and maybe some battered mushrooms, plus other items on our menu. You can probably preview a menu at the Sahara Bar during Thursday Luncheons. Several of our members will be headed to Cocoa Beach the weekend of August 11-12 for the Florida Association of Shrine Motor Corps (FASMC) MidSummer Get-Together. Our own John Hubbard (Hotrod) is Past President of FASMC. Parade Marshal Ron Enger advises us of the Pioneer Days Parade in Englewood on Monday, September 4th. This annual Labor Day parade is a morning parade, so weather is going to be a factor. Hopefully, the Motor Corps can participate. All the remaining parades in calendar year 2017 are night parades. Bruce Porter (Wizard), who is also Sahib Assistant Rabban, advised the Motor Corps that he had dropped his bike. Because of that, at our June meeting, he was presented with the Monkey necklace and stuffed monkey by the previous recipient, Giles Light (G-man). Bruce advised that he will not likely be riding for several weeks because of soreness in his shoulder and arm from the bike falling on him. For those of you that collect Challenge Coins, the Motor Corps has them for sale. Cost is $10 each. See any Motor Corps member if interested. We have some catching up to do on the birthday/anniversary scene since our last report was back in May. We had three birthdays in June: Lady Juanita Rawlinson on the 5th, Lady Suzy Lucas (Cream Cheese) on the 9th, and Lady Gina Bracken (GS) on the 25th. June anniversary was Wally Lacey (Red Dog) and Lady Connie (Cooter) on the 30th. We had four birthdays in July: Darren Bracken (Schmoozer) on the 5th, John Hubbard (Hotrod) on the 7th, Lady Kathy Galanti on the 14th, and Wally Lacey (Red Dog) on the 28th. July anniversary was Tony Galanti (G) and Lady Kathy on the 31st. Finally, in August we have four birthdays: Lady Sharon Thornsberry on the 7th, George Mitchell (Mitch) on the 11th, Lady Christine Hernandez on the 16th, and Hampton Crimi (Monk) on the 20th. August anniversary is George Mitchell (Mitch) and Lady Peggy Sue on the 3rd. 

HONORING AND REMEMBERING IMPERIAL SIR JACK JONES

IMPERIAL SIR JACK H. JONES

worked tirelessly over the past 37 years to support and serve the fraternity at the national level. He served Shriners International as Imperial Recorder for 36 years, Executive Vice President for five, Imperial Potentate for one, and received countless accolades and honors, including the Imperial Potentate’s Award of Merit, which is the highest honor in the fraternity. Jones was also known as one of the most dedicated and genuine people to work alongside – a reputation he has earned by leading the fraternity with grace and pride. Imperial Sir Jack Jones was initially elected Imperial Recorder in 1979, and served in that position, or as Imperial Potentate, until his death. During much of his time as Imperial Recorder, he also served as Director of Membership Development. Imperial Sir Jack Jones also served as Chairman of the Masonic Relations and DeMolay Committees during the majority of this time. During his time as Imperial Potentate, Imperial Sir Jones focused on bringing people together, developing modern membership solutions and realizing and recognizing the fraternity’s global impact and its potential. Jones’ theme for the year was “Unity Wins.” Imperial Sir Jack Jones did not permit his use of a wheelchair to confine his spirit or his travels. He was a frequent speaker at Masonic events throughout the world and was a well-known and well-respected Masonic leader. While serving Shriners International, Jones also met many high-profile figures, including the Queen of England and President Ronald Reagan, who he had the privilege of personally making an honorary member of the fraternity. While serving as Imperial Potentate, Jones also had the pleasure of meeting the world’s oldest man and 113-year-old Shriner, Walter Breuning. “Imperial Sir Jack Jones has been a fixture on the boards of Shriners International and Shriners Hospitals for Children for decades,” said Imperial Potentate Chris Smith. “With the passing of Jack Jones, all Masons and all Shriners have experienced a great loss. He was a truly great Shriner, an example to all.” Editor’s note: Imperial Sir Jack Jones was a life-long associate member of Sahib Shrine. 

SHRINE UNIT NEWS Clown Corner by Harold “Ding-a-Ling” Bell, scrappysarasota@comcast.net

I

t is hard to believe that August 2017 is here and it once again is National Clown Month. So be it, because for the Sahib Clowns it is different, also, because our unit is busy preparing and doing clown gigs. Our first gig was at Sun & Fun on July 1. We Clowns had fun with the many campers at the resort. The clown participants for the summer are “Ding-a-Ling” Bell, “Boogie” Humphreys, “Flex” Jankowski, “Inky” Holbrook, and “Delby” Rawlinson. Next month the unit hopes to report on more gigs. As I said above, it is different because the unit in the past has been dark during the summer months. We usually start preparing our acts for the Shrine Circus the last week in August. We will have additional time this year for the 2017 Shrine Circus preparation because of the November performance date.

The Clowns wish to say thank you to the many nobles that contributed to the Red Shoe Sneaker Fund. In May, the Clown Unit made a $700 contribution to the fund. Our Potentate Ill. Sir William Balkwill was very kind to the unit and posted a copy of our certificate that we received from International Shrine Clown Association on the front hall bulletin board. I hope that you take time to view it. The association will send the funds directly to our hospitals for the support of Burns Research. As we read this in the August “Reporter” our thoughts will be looking to the September 4th Englewood Pioneer Days Parade. If no rain, the Clowns and the calliope will see you in September. Remember, it is the Shrine children for whom we are working. 

Oriental Band Jim Austin, jau1060866@aol.com

W

ow! Here it is August. Hard to believe! The last time we spoke the Oriental Band had decided to go over to the 2017 Imperial doings in Daytona Beach the second week of July. We had worked out a program, had practiced this group of songs and had discussed our logistics… take the band float, which costume, white Arab, colored Arab, Chinese or sultan? But, somewhere along the line, focus was lost. Some members needed vacations with their families and some illnesses cut down the number of our band to the point where it was clear we could not perform as we desired. To be sure, several our little group went over to investigate this new format and made a full report to the rest of us. Now, next year, we will have a choice again as to which group to join;

the Oriental Band-only get-together in one city or the Imperial in another city. In other matters, we did increase the size of the band by four members this past six months. Welcome Angus, Bob, James and Marty. We ended up losing Marty but, it did help to have the other three learning instruments. All are welcome. Starting in September, this space will feature (as we have in the past) a small article on each of our new members so that you can get to know them. Next parade will be on Labor Day and we will be there! Take care of yourself and try to take care of at least one other. There are many out and about that can use your help. 

beashrinernow.com beashrinernow.com continues to attract quality candidates. To date, more than 1,200 men have inquired about Freemasonry or becoming a Shriner. While the numbers of those interested are impressive, we really need more mentors to ensure candidates receive the attention they need and deserve. Consider joining the more than 1,150 Shriners who are already virtual mentors. As a virtual mentor, you will be paired with a candidate in your area who has similar interests. Communicating by phone, email or in person, you will have the opportunity to share your knowledge and enthusiasm about Masonry and about being a Shriner. You will answer questions or concerns, help find the Lodge best suited to the candidate’s interests, and help him with his journey to become a Shriner. You will also have the opportunity to make a new friend. Learn more and sign up at: https://www.shrinersvillage.com/Membership/VirtualMentor.aspx

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

M

asonic ritual focuses on the development of virtue, good habits and moral conduct as the vehicles for discovering something called “further light” or Truth. The Symbolic Lodge, for example, includes instruction on the four cardinal and three theological virtues, “square dealing,” friendship and brotherly love. The degrees of the Scottish Rite provide further instruction concerning qualities we should inculcate. For example, the 20th Degree, Master of the Symbolic Lodge, provides an instructional diagram of twenty-five virtues or qualities a Master should process and emulate. Care and caution should be taken to ascertain that our degree work does not become a mere recitation of “lists.” Our work is intended to be more than instructional, it is intended to be transforming, life-changing. A useful approach for making personal progress may be to examine the stumbling blocks in our way - the vices we seek to overcome or to avoid all together. The classical list of vices includes Pride, Envy, Wrath or Anger, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony and Lust. Throughout history, philosophers and theologians, in writing about virtue and ethics, have “paired” them with vices for illustrative purposes. The Greek philosopher Aristotle (384322 BCE) and the Roman writer Plutarch (46120 CE) are two examples. Neither dealt with philosophical theory in such pairings; they were promoting character development. Plutarch contrasts envy with friendship. Aristotle contrasts it with goodwill. They describe

envy as a perception or a sorrow that someone whom we consider to be roughly equal to ourselves is indeed more excellent or more successful than we. Envy is a certain irrational resentfulness and has a “chronic, gnawing and bitter quality.” Envy takes delight in the failure of others, it can become “the ulcer of the soul.” Recognizing and avoiding the vice of envy seems to be a good step forward for us to emulate that phrase heard so often in the Entered Apprentice lecture, “… and the heart and the tongue join in promoting each other’s welfare and rejoicing in each other’s prosperity.” Friendship and Goodwill toward all people are virtues Masons espouse. Perhaps our progress in emulating them can be served by avoiding a vice that might stand in the way. Our pursuit of personal transformation continues at the next Scottish Rite Reunion on October 21 and 28. Petitions are available at http://tampascottishrite.org. The Valley of Tampa regularly meets at its Center in Tampa on the 2nd Monday of each month. Dinner is served at 5:45 p.m. and the regular meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. At our August 14th meeting, the 8th Degree, Intendant of the Building, will be conferred at 6:10 p.m., between dinner and the meeting. Casey Fletcher is Past Master of Tuscan Lodge No. 6 in Bartow, Florida. He notes that Plutarch also wrote an essay “On Talkativeness,” a characteristic that can be a vice. Perhaps that is an admonition to keep these articles brief. 

Sar-I Court No. 79 - LOSNA by Carol Hart, High Priestess, hrthrt@verizon.net

M

any of our ladies attended our Grand Council Session (comparable to the men’s Imperial Session) in Sandusky, Ohio and had a wonderful time. Our new Grand High Priestess is Lady Janet Larson from Hawaii and now living in Winter Springs, Florida. GHP Janet has chosen a Rehabilitative Playground for Children Honolulu Hospital as her Grand High Priestess Project for her year. Children with orthopedic issues do not have the luxury of participating in everyday activities such as enjoying a playground. This will be the first known handicap playground in the State of Hawaii and we are excited to be playing a part in changing their lives. Our new Grand Outer Guard is Lady Cindy Rudd who is also from Florida. We send congratulations to each of them and the other Grand Officers and wish them a wonderful year. During our stay there, we certainly found the candy shop to be a great place to greet other ladies while enjoying the sweets. Yummy treats! Locally, Sar-I Court is dark for the summer and will resume in September. Though we are not conducting meetings, our ladies continue to gather for many events. Our sewing group meets on the 4th Thursday of each month, we

attended the Sahib Drag Queen Bingo, learned to line dance at the White Buffalo Saloon, attended McCurdy’s Comedy Club, went bowling, ran the Christmas in July gift collection at Sahib for the children at Shriners Hospitals for Children Tampa and delivered the gifts to them. Wow, we sure are having a busy summer. Starting in September, we will be meeting on the 2nd Friday of the month and will continue with more exciting events. Won’t you come and join us? Contact me at (941) 284-8119 for information on how to join so we may invite you to participate at our October Ceremonial. The unit I will be highlighting this month is our Songbirds. Marian Cox is the directress and has been for many years. They sing at each of our meetings, our ceremonials, our Sunshine Unit Meet, Grand Council, holiday party singa-long, Sahib events when requested, and have the sweetest voices. The Songbirds are one of our largest groups and the first group formed in our court. They rehearse at 10:00 a.m. the first Friday of the month at Sahib and then have lunch there. To quote Lady Marian Cox, “Keep a song in your heart and a smile on your face.” Until next month, do what you can to help a child. 

W

hat a summer this has been weather wise. Hope you all have had some real fun times and look forward to hearing all about it when we start our sessions on September 7, 2017. It was so nice to get together in Parrish to lounge beside the pool, great food and just a good time to socialize. We have more activities scheduled for the coming months. We had our Supreme Session this year in Niagara Falls, New York. All those in attendance had a wonderful time seeing the sights, renewing friendships and making new friends. Congratulations to our new Supreme

Queen Karen Keuther. Her Supreme Majesty was crowned in June and has started her travels to the various temples throughout the United States and Canada, plus visiting and making presentations at all the twenty-two Shriners Hospitals for Children. We at Nyla Temple wish her a wonderful year and we look forward to her visit to our temple in January 2018. Know of someone interested in becoming a member of our temple?

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, 2017, they have collected 113,835 lbs., for a total of $61,166.16 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.

If you’re a noble of the Shrine searching for brotherhood and camaraderie, remember that Sahib Shrine is yours. Find your way and enjoy your membership. Sahib is always in need of assistance with duties, there are many activities to become involved with for your pleasure. Don’t travel alone, bring someone with you to travel the journey crossing

Call:

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!
