Potentate's July/August Message

Summer is here! With temperatures already reaching into the 90s we need to remember to stay cooled and hydrated. Have fun outside, but be careful not to overdo it.

The parade season is upon us and began with the Shrine Bowl Parade in Kearney on June 3. Sesostris was well represented and well received by the spectators. Many parades are coming up and I urge participation by all of our parade units and clowns. A parade isn’t a parade without anyone in it and our small towns rely on Sesostris to bring lots of units.

A shout of thanks to all who supported the Shrine Bowl Football Game and the Shrine Soccer Classic this year.

June 18 was the inaugural FEZWALK held at Holmes Lake Park in Lincoln. Approximately 100 walkers, runners and volunteers made this a success. Net proceeds of about $2,500 will be donated to Camp Achieve in Minnesota. Camp Achieve is a summer camp for Shrine patients with limb deficiencies. This event was a great example of the quote from Helen Keller, "Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much."

We need to thank the sponsors who contributed to the financial success of this venture. They are: Schmidt Sanitation and Trucking, Biggerstaff Plumbing and Heating, Cross Dillon Tire Pros, Triumph Home Medical Supplies, Murphy Motors, Allied Tour and Travel, O Street Carpet, Sesostris Mustangs, Ric and Barb Helms and the Shear Delight/Mane Event shop. Contributing in-kind support were: Grays Keg, for donating the use of his sound equipment for the event; Norland Pure, for donating the bottled water; and, All Care Restoration, for the Gatorade, chocolate milk, fresh fruit and other food items. Please remember these businesses when you have need of their services.

We will be looking to make this event bigger and better next year. Please forward any positive suggestions for improvements to me at kwill14@windstream.net. Again, I want to extend a huge thank you to all who helped and participated this year.

Coming up rapidly is the Imperial Session in Daytona Beach, Florida July 9-13. This will be attended by your Potentate, Chief Rabban, Assistant Rabban and High Priest and Prophet. We will be there representing Sesostris and voting on many items.

Labor Day weekend will see CSSA in Overland Park, Kansas. You need to get your reservations in as soon as possible. See more information elsewhere in this publication.

Before you know it, weather will begin to cool down and football season will be upon us. So, enjoy the summer!

Es Saleem Aleikum

(Peace be upon you)
