The Eugene/Springfield Shrine Club was honored to have the following Shriners present at their November 9, 2017 dinner at the Eugene Elks club. President Lloyd Henson introduced guests which included IS Ron Gamble and his new bride Lady Pam, IS Don Wetzel and Lady Sue of Hillah Temple, Chief Rabban Art Hermanson and Lady Lynne, and Past President of the Club Captain of the Guard Fred Hardin and Lady Reba. Following the traditional turkey dinner the President made announcements regarding the Donkey Basketball Game and the Springfield Christmas Parade.
Then came the big surprise - the Installation of the 2018 Officers was performed by both Potentates IS Ron Gamble of Al Kader and IS Don Wetzel of Hillah. This hadn’t been done as a joint installation in about 20 years. Installed 2018 Officers were President Bill Jones (Hillah), 1st VP Lloyd Henson (Al Kader), Treasurer Les Spence (Hillah), and Secretary John Rodgers (Al Kader). 2nd VP Ralph Ferree was unable to attend. The additional surprise came when IS Ron installed the new Emerald Patrol President Martin Klos and Noble Mike Richardson of the motorized tricycles. Our installations were made memorable by our visitors and a good time was had by all! Our Club is looking forward to a successful New Year!
