POTE’S NOTES

Greeting Nobles,

I hope you are all are enjoying the temperate weather as spring has finally revealed itself and will have the opportunity to spend more time outside as well as participate in recreational functions that Salaam Shrine will try to organize in the coming months.  Please check social media, Constant Contact and the monthly newsletter on a regular basis to find out about our upcoming events and other activities such as fundraisers that will be sponsored by Salaam throughout the year. Ladies, as well as Nobles, are welcome to attend and get involved, in fact, we encourage it.  So do not hesitate to bring a significant other or friend to join in.

Increased membership, as well as significant integration of the Shrine into the Masonic community, is one of the most significant issues on our agenda this year and I believe we have made a concerted effort to move in that direction. In addition to welcoming other concordant bodies to contribute to our newsletter, Salaam Shrine opened its first (at least to my knowledge) Hospitality Suite at New Jersey Grand Lodge in Atlantic City and it was aptly named “The Salaam Sweet Shoppe”, of course, it was Star Wars Themed and was extremely well received.

Our basis on philanthropy, specifically to our beloved Shriners Hospitals for Children is always on the forefront of our planning. I Am pleased to report Our First Lady Veronica Hummel’s “19 in 19” fundraising campaign has been going well and our current Toy Drive for the Mexico City Hospital has been gaining momentum.  In addition, we are in the works to plan a bus trip to The SHC in Philadelphia from the Shrine for The Extended Board Day on June 22nd.  It will give our nobility and friends a chance to gain further awareness of the hospital and its accomplishments for our children.

Yours in the Faith,

Joseph M. Hummel
