2019 Potentate

Illustrious Sir Joseph M. Hummel



Greetings Nobles,

Fall has already begun to show her true colors, but luckily, she held out on bringing chill into the air to ensure we had perfect weather for our 2019 Potentate’s Ball “An Intergalactic Celebration at Sea”.

Lady Veronica and I wanted to do something a little different this year and having the celebration on the yacht Aqua Azul and being joined by the Star Wars cosplayers of the Northeast Remnant of the 501st Legion did not disappoint. We would like to thank all the individuals involved that helped make the evening a success and all our guests who showed us such great support, you have helped make this an unforgettable experience for both of us.

I would also like to express how truly proud I am of everyone involved with our Fall Ceremonial “The MW Gregory J. Scott Class” that took place on Friday October 4th, especially our Divan who did an excellent job with the Ritual and our Oriental Band for the musical accompaniment.

In addition a hearty congratulations is in order for the 1.3 Brothers that crossed the Burning Sands and arrived as Nobles of Salaam Shrine, welcome to one of the world’s largest Philanthropies!
Lastly I would also like to thank the Grand Staff and Nobles of Salaam and Crescent for their support during this special evening, with the hope that we will have many more joint functions to come.

Yours in the Faith,

Joseph M. Hummel
