Illustrious Sir Joseph M. Hummel
Greetings Nobles All,
Summer is finally upon us and I hope you are all using this special time to spend with family and friends at barbeques, picnics or just enjoying the long days of sunshine. We at Salaam are planning our activities for the fall and continue to work on new improvements on the inside as well as the grounds of our new home in Whippany, New Jersey.
This July brought us the 145th Imperial Session in Nashville, Tennessee and Salaam Shrine was well represented in the activities throughout the week. I would like to thank our Divan Members, Nobles and their Ladies as well as our Imperial Representatives, Illus. Louis O’Neill and Illus. Andrew Kuo, for taking time out of their schedules to travel with us. It was also a great pleasure to have our MW Grand Master Gregory J. Scott and his First Lady Nancy also join us for the event.
We would like to also congratulate Illustrious Sir Andrew A. Kuo for being appointed to the Imperial Standing Committee for Jurisdictional Lines.
Additionally, I would like to give a special thanks to my Lady Veronica, who took the time make sure our Ladies were well cared for. This year we worked in concert to plan activities with Crescent Shrine, our sister Shrine of New Jersey and I believe it was a positive experience for all of us. I would like to see more collaborations between the two Shrines moving forward.
While September may feel like its still a long way away – please don’t forget to save the date and purchase your tickets for the 2019 Potentate’s Ball. This is not going to be a party to honor the Potentate – believe me I don’t take myself that seriously. It will be a celebration of the Shrine and of the fellowship we all enjoy when we get together. Be sure not to miss this memorable evening.
Yours in the Faith,
Joseph M. Hummel
