Potentate's January Message
Dear Nobles and Ladies of Orak Shrine,
As we begin 2016, I would like to first thank Illustrious Sir Scott E. Mitchell P.P. and Lady Olivia for their hard work and dedication. Their focus and commitment to helping and entertaining children was truly evident. Best wishes and thank you for a job well done.
I must start by saying that I am truly honored to have been elected Potentate of Orak Shrine for 2016. I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead and also being able to work closely with so many of the dedicated Shriners of Orak Temple. I am trying to have a full calendar which will not only be fun but also meaningful.
Dean Larson and Lady Gail will be coordinating our first Walk for Love. This will take place at Wicker Park in Highland, IN on July 17, 2016. All ages are welcome to participate. Proceeds for this event will benefit our hospitals. The next time you see Noble Dean give him a hearty hand shake. He has been elected to serve as secretary on the board of directors at our Chicago Hospital. Well done, sir!!
Orak’s newly appointed Captain of the Guard, Wayne Hodgetts, will be coordinating a golf outing at Summer Tree Golf Course in Merrillville, IN. Every attempt will be made to make this event affordable while being profitable. Mark you calendar for June 18, 2016. The profits of this event will benefit Orak Temple.
On July 16, 2016, newlyweds Virgil and Brenda Clary will be conducting a poker run. This is open to the public and will benefit Orak Temple.
I understand we all become very busy during the course of the summer; however, try to attend at least one of these events to show your support. Please continue to check our website for additional upcoming events and updates.
On January 31, 2016, Orak is having a Public Installation. All unit officers, trustees, and elected and appointed divan members should be present. It begins at 1:30. Cake and coffee will be served.
Lastly, we are having a Super Bowl party on February 7, 2016. Bring your family and friends. Bring your own drinks and an appetizer to share. Doors open at 4:00.
We are in the process of arranging special seating for all Packer fans. (HINT) You should dress warmly.
Membership and involvement is needed to operate and sustain our Temple. Lets all do what we can.
All circus ticket money needs to be turned in along with your 2016 dues.
Dale T. Morgan
