Pote's Notes - June/July 2017

Dear Nobles and Ladies:

This shall be my third message bringing you up-to-date on the activities and happenings at your Nile Shrine Center.

On April 2nd, Lady Jane and I attended the Daughters of the Nile’s (D.O.N.) Installation at the Nile, where I brought greetings from the Nobles of the Nile Shriners and congratulated newly installed Queen Denice Tewalt, and Hatasu Temple No. 1, Daughters of the Nile, on their 104th Annual Installation of Officers and wished the Temple the very best for the ensuing year. We very much enjoyed the Installation and pageantry of the afternoon.

Pote's Notes - April/May 2017

Dear Nobles and Ladies:

By the time you receive this communique in the mail, March will have come and gone. Let me give you a little recap of the happenings around your Nile Shrine Center. In the first weekend of February, the Oriental Band successfully put on an outstanding Crab Feed to a “sold-out” venue with everyone having delicious crab and great fellowship with music performed by the Arlington High School Jazz Band. 

The following Saturday evening, we had the Potentate and First Lady’s Valentine’s Ball with appetizers furnished by the ladies, a fabulous dinner of steak and lobster, which was over the top, thanks to Executive Chef Daniel Green, wine on the table and music to dance and listen to by Mark Stern. Everyone in attendance had an enjoyable time with nothing but positive comments to share.  If you weren’t there, you missed a special evening.
