It all happens at Orak

Our Grand Master Daniel J. Barenie of Indiana and a noble of Orak held a one day class at Orak. After the Lodge degrees cold sands was performed by our Ritual Cast who did an outstanding performance designed for 15 new Nobles. Welcome new Nobles and your families.

The First Lady Olivia’s Tea event to raise funds for playground equipment was a super success with 72 attending and being served by the Nobles of Orak. Thank you to the Tea committee who made the food and great deserts. The tables were so elegantly set. Special thanks to our Motor Patrol who sponsored a table. It’s my understanding that this event will be offered again next year.

Our Pipes & Drum unit of Orak, Quarter Auction was also greatly attended and great success. Look for them again next year.

The big events for May, on the 14th to 16th Great Lakes Shrine Association Salmon Derby will take place at Orak sponsored by Mizpah Shrine Center for our Shriners Hospitals for Children. Check out the flyer on this website for information. I plan on winning the derby this year, register and take up the challenge.

The BIG Event of The Year. Potentates Gala on May 30th at Orak Shrine Center. Featuring, Circus Boy, who has performed with many entertainers and then Dan Meyer 35 time world record holder for Sword Swallowing and a Michigan City native who was inspired by our Arab Patrol watching the parades as a child. Also for your enjoyment a fireworks show performed by Mad Bomber Productions will follow Dan Meyer’s performance. Check out the flyer on this website and register soon as you can, so we can make sure fun for all will be had. In keeping with our goal, Olivia and I encourage family participation.  
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.

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.


May all of your days be circus days.

Yours In Faith.

Scotty & Olivia
