Potes Notes January 31, 2013 (End of Year) Illustrious Sir Gable

Potes’s Notes – Jan. 2014

Zenobia Shrine has been terrific in 2013 due to outstanding support from the Nobles.  Each Noble, his lady, family and friends, who supported any activity held through the Temple, has played a significant role in the success this year of the Zenobia Shriners.  Thank you for whatever part you played in being “prepared to serve”. 

It has been a pleasure to serve the membership of Zenobia on the Divan, and especially this year, as Potentate.  Your Divan has established good long term plans over the past few years and that direction will continue to get better in the coming years.  Continue to support your Board of Directors as they do what is best for Zenobia.  Best wishes to the newly elected officers who are anxious to continue to work for the members.

For all those Nobles and their Ladies who stepped up and served on one of the Potentate’s appointed positions, your help has been appreciated and made 2013 a successful and enjoyable year.  Thank you for all you have done.  Your time and efforts were appreciated and now you are relieved of your 2013 assignments.  Please consider assisting your new Potentate, Keith Tuttle and his Lady Kathy, if asked.

Lady Joan and I have truly enjoyed being able to serve Zenobia in 2013.  We have met many new friends, and became better acquainted with old friends.  We appreciate each of you for your support for us, Zenobia, our fraternity and the ‘world’s greatest philanthropy!”  You have made this year a memory filled with smiles.  We are grateful that you are always “prepared to serve”!  Our best wishes to you for good health and happiness.

Potes Notes December 2013 – Illustrious Sir Gable

Pote’s Notes – December

The Fall Ceremonial gets better each year!  Thanks to all who helped to welcome our newest members, including those from the past 3 years.  What a great job our Nobles do to provide everyone with a good time!  A special ‘Thanks’ goes out to our Dramatic Cast and the Director’s Staff for making the day memorable.  The First Section was marvelous presentation, and  everyone had an entertaining time in the Second Section.  Also, ‘thanks’ to all who attended.  All the units that participated in the tailgate and “showed their stuff” throughout the Ceremonial helped each of us to experience what satisfaction one can have by joining a club or unit.  The new Nobles expressed that it really was FUN!

Zenobia made the Toledo Holiday Parade spectacular by having so many units and clubs participate.  You are impressive.  Thanks to everyone who made the parade.

The Zenobia Kids Holiday Party will be here on Sunday, December 8.  Thank you to all who donated to the party.  If your club/unit has not done so, there is still time to help out.  Stop by and experience the smiling faces.  Thank you to Mike and Pam Ray for chairing this event.

Zenobia will again be hosting a new Worshipful Master’s Dinner, which will be attended by MWGM Mick.  Please contact your lodge and have the WM make reservations and attend with his lady.

This is a busy time of year with many holiday dinners and installations.  I want to extend to all the unit/club officers for 2014, best wishes for a successful year.  My Lady Joan and I have enjoyed attending these events and look forward to the several ahead.

Remember to purchase your tickets for the Zenobia New Year Party which will be held on January 4th (1/4/14!).  This is always a fun time and this year will be no exception.  The activities have changed, so come and enjoy some ‘new’ fun.  You will not be disappointed.

Lady Joan and I have thoroughly enjoyed traveling with nobles and their ladies to New England, Cincinnati Hospital Open House, and DC with the Legion of Honor.  We appreciate all the support from you that has made this year so enjoyable.  Thank you all for your “Prepared to Serve” participation in Zenobia.  There is more to happen, so get out and enjoy Shrinedom.

We also extend to each Noble, Mason and their ladies best wishes for the holiday season.  May your days be blessed and filled with satisfaction.  Happy Holidays to You and Yours, from Lady Joan and me.
