Vernon L. Harris, President
July 2017

A wonderful meeting was held at Keizer Elks Lodge. A lunch was enjoyed by all.

We mourn the loss of our brother, Richard D. Lee. He was very active with The Shriners and the Shriner’s Hospital. He was quite a family man and enjoyed fishing trips with family and friends. Please remember his family in prayers for comfort and peace.

We were honored to have Shelby Anderson, Senior Princess of Bethel #43 in Salem and her mother, Debbie. Shelby was full of information related to Job’s Daughter’s regarding its history, the leadership programs, and the leadership positions (Jr. and Sr. Princesses and the Honor Queen). Shelby will be installed as the Honor Queen on June 10th at Scottish Rite at 2 pm. She invited all to attend. This would be a great way for all to show their respect for the work that these young ladies do. It is important for all Masons to be involved in the youth programs of the fraternity, as these young people are the future. They truly enjoy having as many as possible in the side lines to show support.

Dave Simpson, Potentate Rep., encouraged attendance at all affairs and to develop greater friendship of the fraternities. He presented an informational tribute to “The Star Spangled Banner” and how it came about. Very inspirational and showing tribute to our country.

Meeting enjoyed by fellow Shriners with their ladies.

We were honored to have Potentate, Ron Gamble and his Rep, Dave Simpson, enjoy our time of meeting and fellowship.

Potentate Rep, Dave Simpson, updated on the new website that should be completed by the end of May. There is also a new phone system at the Wilsonville Shrine Temple, that allows our fellow Shriner’s that aren’t capable of being at a meeting to call and join in the conversation. There are several parades in the near future and looking forward to participation of as many as possible. Hope to see everyone at the Pickles Game at Walker Stadium on July 22.

Potentate, Ron Gamble, stated that the Salem Shrine Club has been around since 1915 and chartered in 1956. He encouraged involvement in local and statewide happenings.

During the meeting on June 7th, planning a representative from Bethel Job’s Daughters to come and give us information about their program and how we help them become mature young ladies that are an asset to our community

Looking forward to seeing some new faces join the rest of us on the first Wednesday of each month. We meet at 11:30 am at the Keizer Elks club for meeting, lunch and fellowship. Ladies welcome.

It was great to see all that were in attendance at our meeting which is held the first Wednesday of each month at the Keizer Elks Lodge. Enjoyed a time of fellowship and lunch with our ladies.

Louie Samsung, a 70 year Mason. Born in Portland, Arkansas where he became a Mason in 1947. Spoke to us of his life history and some of the fabulous places he went and the things that he did. If you get a chance to talk to him, you will be amazed at the places he has been. He has been to Vietnam, Tunisia, India, Philippines, and Alaska to name a few. Has held many offices in different places.

Potentate Rep, Dave Simpson, reiterated the importance of increasing membership, activities coming up and importance of attendance, website improvement coming in the next 30-60 days to make access easier to navigate.

Looking forward to seeing each one at our next meeting, May 3rd. Come see what we are about and help us celebrate the work of the Shriner’s.
