  • Potentate's March/April Message

           

    Lady Gina and I are grateful to all those who worked on and attended the Installation on January 9 at the Scottish Rite.  The impressive ceremony exceeded our expectations, which included most of the clowns in a cordon framed by two, eight foot balloon towers and an unforgettable clown skit with a banana pie.  
     
    I am grateful for the leadership of the clubs and units that attended the Orientation in person or by the Zoom platform on January 16.
     
    I am grateful to our Director General Todd Tinnean, Lady Gaylene, Treasurer Henry Schultz, and Lady Cathy who travelled with me to Oklahoma City, January 21-23 to determine which hotel met the nobility’s needs for the CSSA Ceremonial to be held August 19-21.
     
    I am grateful for Lady Gina and the Divan ladies and officers who, along with the ladies of the nobles, recognized last year’s First Lady Becky Johnson at a holiday luncheon rescheduled from December to January 30.  
     
    I am grateful that we hosted Imperial Officer Brad Koehn and Imperial Lady Cheryl at a dinner of the nobility and ladies as well as a Town Hall Meeting conducted by the Imperial Sir on February 10.  
     
    I am grateful to the Iron Nobles for doing a Pancake Breakfast at the Shrine on Valentine’s Day.
     
    I am grateful to Assistant Rabban Merv Moeller for his work in putting together the Indoor Fishing Tournament and Dinner on February 27.
     
    I am grateful to Chief Rabban Dale Brambila and the nobility for their work on the Cornhole Tournaments to raise funds for the Shrine in January and February. 
     
    I am pleased to report that our Circus has not been canceled, only postponed for at least six months to allow us time to have an event with fewer COVID restrictions.  I am also pleased to report that our Mardi Gras Party with the Daughters of the Nile has been rescheduled from February 20 to July 30.  The Valentine’s Day Dinner scheduled for February 12 has been canceled by the Scottish Rite.  
     
    These last few months, I think of the following quote:  “Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass . . . it’s about learning how to dance in the rain!”  This quote from Vivian Greene recognizes we all face adversity in our lives.  However, it is not the adversity, but how we will react to it that will determine the joy and happiness in our lives.  So during tough times, I seek not to spend too much time feeling sorry for myself; but with gratitude, learn how to dance in the rain.  
     
    Sarah Breathnach said it best:  “When we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present . . . we experience heaven on earth.”
     
    I look forward to seeing you at the Shrine Center.  
     
    IT IS TIME TO SHINE AT THE SHRINE!
    Sincerely,
    Jerry Pigsley
