At the February meeting of the Portland Shrine Club, Potentate Everett Kaherl is presented with his PS dues card by Ryan Goldammer, President. Potentate Kaherl also installs the officers for 2013.
Our September meeting was our Potentate’s Reception for Ill John Knox and his Lady Becky. We gathered at Bayley’s Campground for a Lobster/Steak Feast prepared by the outstanding staff at Bayley’s. This was a time for us to meet new friends (Picture 1 is Ill John with Lady Becky and new noble Bob Maxfield and his lady Mary) and connect with old friends (Picture 2 is Bill Crane and his lady Ruth with new noble Shane Ross and his lady Joely hiding behind the Cranes). We all spent a splendid afternoon enjoying our lobsters and steaks. (Pictures 3, 4, and 5) It was really great to have David Smart and his lady Linda join us for awhile (Picture 6) Illustrious John told us how “it is” (Picture 7) His comments were well received by some ruffians (Picture 8.) As always it was wonderful to have our ladies there! (Picture 9)
Tom Bayley, fellow noble, took the opportunity to present a check for $3,300 to the Kora transportation fund. This money came from the revenue from recycling bottles and cans. Bayley’s displays signs and includes announcements in their publications to let their patrons know that the revenue from all recycled bottles and cans goes to support the Shrine Hospital Activities Thank you Tom
The project of sanding the floors at the temple was completed in time for the fall ceremonial. Many thanks to the fine people at Custom Design Flooring for their fine work and great service. The members of Portland Shrine Club who contributed the funds through the years can be proud of a very worthwhile project. The club house was never built but we were able to provide the temple with some freshly refinished floors that can be easily maintained for years to come. Thank you gentlemen. Pictures of the project are also shown on this web page
In December, we will be entertained with seasonal music by the North Deering Congregational Church Choir. Everyone is asked to bring a wrapped gift of less than $5 value to be distributed by some special person. Be Creative, Be humorous or Be just practical.
