2018 Potentate

Illustrious Sir Louis Anthony O’Neill

Monthly Message

Illustrious Sirs, Nobles, Family & Friends,

My heartfelt thanks to those who attended our public installation on January 5th. It was a wonderful day. My special thanks to the Grand Master, M.W. Dieter B. Hees, who traveled considerable distance to join us.

My logo represents my plans for the year. The letters TCB refer to “Taking Care of Business”, an Elvis Presley theme. I’ve adopted this slogan because we are very busy preparing to occupy our new building in Whippany. We are hard at work streamlining the office and planning many events for your enjoyment and to raise funds for our hospitals.

Among our planned events are:

  • Golf Outing at Farmstead Golf Course on Friday, May 4
  • Quad-State Shrine Gala at Crescent Shrine on Sunday, July 22nd
  • Walk for Life in the Fall (TBD)
  • the Potentate’s Ball on Saturday, October 13th

We are pleased to have Alec, the boy who stars in our hospital TV commercials, Imperial Chief Rabban Jim L. Cain, Sr., Jody Carson from the Shrine Concert CD Fundraisers, and the Grand Master of New Jersey as honored guests at the Ball.

After a long hiatus, we are bringing the DeMolay and Rainbow dance to our new facility in Whippany on Friday, November 23rd.  This was an annual event which both groups looked forward to.

Our negotiations with The Valley of Northern NJ are moving forward and we are close to signing a lease. This promises to bring our organizations closer together for our mutual benefit.

I aim to bring the fun back to Salaam and provide many opportunities to enjoy each other’s company.  The sale of our Livingston headquarters had consequences but I am working hard to revitalize the spirit we once enjoyed.

I hope to see y’all at our new home soon.

Thank you.  God Bless!

 

Ill. Sir Louis Anthony “Tunes” O’Neill
