Potentate's March/April Message

THANK YOU ALL!!! The month of January had it all and has been a great beginning for 2019. January 5 went down as a wonderful Installation. The attendance was great, the reception was a wonderful compliment to the Installation, and lastly, the weather was exceptional. My Lady Nancy and I thank all of the nobility and the ladies involved for making this a great, successful Installation for us and Sesostris.

The rest of January, the weather was not as kind, especially, on most of the weekends. We saw many events cancelled or postponed to a later date. As of this writing, we have been able to have most of the events with the exception being the Iron Nobles and Nile Patrol Pancake Feed, which has been rescheduled for February 10. The Shrimp Feed, was held one week later with a good attendance.

By the time you read this we will have had several other fun events: Valentine parties, the Abate Bike Show and our first Shrine Circus for the year held in Columbus.

March and April promise to be a couple of fun months with the Lincoln Shrine Circus, March 13–17, Outreach Clinic at St. Elizabeth Hospital on March 22, the first annual Easter Egg Hunt on April 20 and the Spring Ceremonial on April 27.

As promised in my first message, I said I would showcase my new or different events/ideas for 2019. They are as follows:

Legacy Corner (more information to follow)


1. There will be a featured parade unit for each parade. That unit will follow the Divan.

2. Participation Awards presented at Recognition Night, as follows;

1 to 5 parades = Bronze Certificate

6 to 10 parades = Silver Certificate

11 to 20 parades = Gold Certificate

21 or more parades = Platinum Certificate

Indoor Ice Finishing Contest November 24

The Nobility Ball is going to be a Fall Ball held on November 9 & 10

Thanks for all you do for Sesostris and let all your days be Shrine days!
