Potentate’s Message for August 2016

robert_york - ClearDear Nobles and Ladies,

ORAK Shrine was busy during July 2016 with various activities and events.

imperial2016The Divan and Nobles attended  Imperial Shrine in Tampa, Florida for four days.  Divan members represented ORAK during the business sessions. We voted on many changes with the main area of significance related to the sale of merchandise and other promotional items.

We participated in the Imperial parade with Imperial  Sir William Bailey in the viewing stand.

Our units participated in various parades during the month, including those celebrating the July 4 holiday.

Several events are scheduled for August 2016:

  • First, the Shrine Night at the RailCats will take place on August 4 with 50 Nobles and guests attending.
  • Next, the Grinders Baseball Game will be held on August 7.
    We will be represented by a team consisting of Nobles and other volunteers that will compete against a team that uses circa late 1800’s rules.
    Proceeds will be donated to Shriners Hospitals for Children.
  • Lastly, the Annual Hog Roast & Car Show will be held at ORAK temple on August 20.
    This is a major fundraiser for ORAK and includes a dinner of pork and several side dishes.
    All Nobles were mailed 5 tickets for the event, please return the stub with your remittance.
    Invite all of your friends and family to attend this event, this benefits Orak and in turn all of us as Nobles.
