Potes Notes November 2013 – Illustrious Sir Gable

It is a pleasure to announce two new members of the Divan, Tom Binder as 1st Ceremonial Master and Rich Schroeder as 2nd Ceremonial Master.  Following much investigation, it was evident that they are “prepared to serve” Zenobia Shrine.  Each of these Shriners is excited about the challenges which lie ahead and are anxious to begin serving Zenobia in their new role.  More detailed information about each can be found elsewhere in the Hadji.  Please welcome Tom and Rich as they begin their new positions with Zenobia.

Membership Day is every day, and today is no different.  We have our next ceremonial on Saturday, November 16, 2013 at Zenobia.  This is in conjunction with the Toledo Holiday Parade.  See other articles for times and activities.  What is needed from you are candidates!  Get those petitions into the office for processing.  If you need some assistance in getting commitments, bring your candidate to the RUSH Night on November 8th at Zenobia.  This informative evening is good for the candidate, his spouse and can be helpful for you and your lady.  Doors open at 6 PM and the program begins at 6:30 PM.  Reservations are preferred, but not required, by contacting Teri at (419) 661-9200, ext. 120.  Let’s make that extra effort NOW and get these candidates involved in the greatest fraternity.

Thank you to everyone and anyone who helped in any way to the success of the Divan Ladies Style Show or the Entertainers Sportsman’s Event on October 5th.  Without your help neither would be possible.  The Ladies Style Show was a huge success!  Thanks for the great attendance, good food and drink, wonderful door prizes and auction items.  A special “Thank you” goes out to Jenny Snetz who provided the biggest draw, the beautiful quilt.  Well done, Lady Joan!

The Sportsman’s Event was a profitable activity for Zenobia.  This was a good beginning to what can be a great event.  Thank you to the Entertainers Group for selecting Zenobia as the recipient of the proceeds.

The Pote’s Fall Foliage trip has returned from New England.  It was a marvelous trip with beautiful scenic views throughout.  The visit to the Philadelphia Masonic Lodge was impressive.  The New England seafood was outstanding.  But the fellowship shared by all on the trip was the most memorable. Thank you to all who attended and made this a great memory.

Remember to do your part and be “prepared to serve” Zenobia.  Sign up some candidates for the Ceremonial, attend one Zenobia event you have not participated in previously, sell Shrinedom to people you know.
