Potentate's June Message
It all happens at Orak
It’s Going fast.
Another year of great comradeship and fishing has passed. We were able to get two full days of fishing in while raising awareness and funds for our Shriners Hospitals for Children. Great Lakes Shrine Association and Mizpah Shrine Center did another outstanding job.
The Gala was a Big Top success. Dan Meyer’s performance was impressive and inspiring. Thank You Dan for making it possible. Circus Boy’s performance was fantastic I loved how he incorporated the audience, it was a hoot. Darryl & Pat Hensley displayed their Side Show banners from the 40’s and 50’s along with a two headed cow and turtle plus a snake keeping the history of freak side shows going. It rained but that did not stop the superb fireworks show performed by Mad Bomber Fireworks. Michigan City Dispatch Staff Writer Richard Chambers wrote an article “Tough To Swallow”. This great evening would not have possible if it was not for the Committee who labored long and hard for over a year organizing and decorating the hall to resemble a circus tent. Olivia and I are so thankful for Nelda, Rick, Michelle, Bonita, Robert, Helen and Jorge. The gala pictures will be on the website soon. Please see the article from the Michigan City News-Dispatch here.
Looking ahead to June 7th, Orak will be honoring its member Veterans. A special thank you goes out to Orak Pipe and Drums who generously is assisting in supporting this event. The key note Speaker will be Major General C. Dean Sangalis USMC (Retired). Open to Orak members, families and guest. Please see the flyer on this website and register.
We have an Official Shrine Parade on June 27th in Michigan City. All Units are encouraged to participate. The taste of Houston will be canceled.
As always keep in your prayers the children of Orak and of our Shriners Hospitals. Our Mission “Love to The Rescue”. Our love and prayers go to the families and friends of our nobles who are recovering from an illness or injury or with the Great Architect of the Universe.
Have a Great Summer of Fun.
May all of your days be circus days.
Yours In Faith.
Scotty & Olivia
