The Potentate’s Message
As another month is drawing to a close we can look back and see what was accomplished
and what still needs to be accomplished. The repairs on the building are progressing well
and when this is completed a large headache will be put to rest. The Task Force, to replace
our tenant in A La Carte, is progressing well and the light at the end of the tunnel is shining
brighter. By working together WE can accomplish great things and move our beloved
Fraternity forward.
As WE look forward lets enjoy the upcoming events and functions on our agenda. The Easter
Bunny will be hop, hop, hopping around Hooper’s Hollow shortly and the little people will be
grabbing up the eggs in record time. The Military, Police and Fire Appreciation Day honoring
our First Responders and Military and this year a car show to go along with it will be a highlight of the month. Anyone
who has a car they would like to display, contact the Oriental Guide, Denny Hardy or Illustrious Sir Tom Robinson and
they will give you the “how to do it” information. And last but not least, IT’S CIRCUS TIME! Anyone that can come out
and help with the set up and tear down, of the area, your efforts will be greatly appreciated. The dates and times for
these, work times, are in the calendar book, or you can check the calendar of events in the front of this publication. Also
come out and enjoy the Circus with us.
Parade Season is in full swing, with a couple under our belts and more to come. This is a GREAT way to showcase our
beloved fraternity and let the public know what we do and why we do it: “All About Kids.”
To look back for a moment, another big THANK YOU to all the Nobles and Ladies who had a part in putting on the
Potentate’s Ball. What an elegant evening. My Lady and I thank you, as do our family members, who were in attendance,
and my, 93 years young, Mother had a great time seeing and talking with friends she had not seen in years. That made
the whole evening worthwhile.
Remember you only get out of anything what you put into
it. Come out and get involved and have a GOOD TIME with
us.
Yours in The Faith,
Luther

5 for 5 Membership Program Guidelines
‘The Noble’ is the top-line signer (T.L.S.) for FIVE New
Candidates who become EGYPT Shriners and each
of whom remains current in their payment of dues for a
period of FIVE years.
The TLS must have remained current in paying HIS own
dues for that same period and not have been suspended
during that same period for non-payment of dues.
Egypt Shriners
LEGION OF HONOR
Meets the 1st Thursday of the
month at 7:30 PM in LOH Unit
Room at the R.S. “Stu” Lang
Activities Building
A ‘new noble’ must remain Egypt Shriners for at least one
year prior to transferring membership to another Shrine
Center to qualify under the program.
Should any of the ‘new Nobles’ resign their membership or
be suspended for non-payment of dues, that ‘new noble’
will no longer be included in this incentive program. The
TLS must nominate a new candidate and that replacement
candidate must remain a Noble as described above for 5
years, as well as the TLS’s other candidates.
When the TLS has nominated five Shriners who remain
current in the payment of their dues for five years, he will
receive a Life Membership at a stated meeting.
This program will commence January 1, 2015. It is NOT
retroactive!

Hospital Tour
Guide News
By Noble Frank Harmon, Chief Tour Guide
The Shriners Hospitals for Children in Tampa
specializes in pediatric orthopedics and because of
that, Radiology has a critical role in the patient care
and treatment plan. Since the Hospital specializes
in care for children, we strive to have a “kid friendly”
environment in order to help to reduce any anxieties
the children may have. Happier children have less
stressed parents and when everybody is relaxed it
is good for all.
in height and has a floating tabletop making it
easier to transfer wheelchair dependent patients
as well as aiding in positioning them quickly. The
table is situated so parents or the techs have full
access around the patient as needed. After taking
the x-rays the images are available for the medical
staff to review on any hospital computer.
We also have x-ray systems used in the operating
rooms similar to these in the pictures. These
systems are used to assist the surgeon during
the patients operation ensuring the best possible
surgical outcome.
Let’s take a look at one of our typical exam/
treatment rooms.
The X-ray technologists work together to create a
warm friendly atmosphere for the children. They
are well trained to accommodate a wide variety of
patients who range from infants to young adults,
patients with physical disabilities and those who
have never had an X-ray who are here for treatment
of their first broken bone. The technologists ease
these fears by singing songs, using an I pad or
by simply lowering their voices which relaxes the
patient. The goal of the department is to obtain
quality images for the physicians, and to create an
enjoyable experience for each child and parent.
The waiting room has framed x-rays of many types
of animals and items for the patient and families to
look at and try to guess their identity. The patients
can watch the Disney channel on the TV or take a
few minutes to color while waiting to be called into
the exam room.
We have two x-ray rooms, both of which can be
used in many different applications. Our most
colorful of the two rooms is decorated with Winnie
the Pooh and all his friends. This can often distract
the child in a positive way, while making the entire
x-ray taking procedure easier to perform. This
room is equipped with an overhead lift track system
which is used if necessary to lift a child to the table
top.
Our other room has the very latest technology.
“Digital x-ray image capture” which means the
image is available for the technologist to see within
seconds of taking. The room also has a state of the
art table and generator. The table is fully adjustable

Brandon Shrine
Club

G ti
Greetings
Nobles,
N bl
February
F b
was a very good
d
month for the Brandon Shrine Club Shriners. We
had a successful spaghetti & meatballs fund raiser
dinner at our clubhouse. It was well attended and
all the delicious dinners were sold. Thanks to Noble
Sherman Hendry for preparing the meals with the
assistance of Noble Steve Landers Jr. and Lady
Carolyn Tedder. The club also held a social with
our Ladies which was very enjoyable. Our new club
President Miguel Viruet cooked a wonderful dinner
with the assistance of Noble Joshua Vargo and Lady
Carolyn Tedder.
Nobles, are invited to attend the Brandon Shrine
Club which meets the last Monday of the month: 6:00
p. m. cocktails, 7:00 p. m. dinner. The club is located
at 125 Skywood Drive in Seffner, 33584. On even
numbered months a social is held with our Ladies.
On the odd numbered months a business meeting is
held. Nobles only.
Citrus Shrine Club
By Noble Robert “Slim” Owen 33°
Since our last meeting, Noble President Jim Furtado
was in a “Fender-Bender”. He is doing OK, but not
quite up-to-par as yet. Say a little prayer for him.
While in that mood, say one for Noble Chuck Bradley’s
Lady Betty who is in rehab recovering from a fall she
took last month.
Lou & Barbara Irizarry were among the notables.
Our Club Director, Lt. Colonel Wayne Reedy, who
was just named “Mason of the Month” by his Blue
Lodge, and his Lady Barbara were on hand as were
President Jim Furtado and his Lady Charlotte.
With warmer weather coming, we will be utilizing our
outdoor pavilion more as it gives us more room to
spread out, what with the sun setting later every day
and the popularity of our socials growing, we can use
it.
We received notification that we are now the proud
owners of a “Brick” in the “Pathway of Honor” and we
are also Boosters for the Sands. Next time I go down
to Tampa, I’ll get a “pic O’ the Brick” for the website.
Citrus Shrine Club plans to make a donation in April
to the Transportation Fund from our recycling efforts.
Aluminum Cans and old newspapers do add up to
cash. We have been quite successful over more
years than I can count and as time goes by, our
methods change and revenue increases, enabling
us to help EST in their efforts to help those who need
it more than we do.
District No. 19 had their annual Out-Door-Degree
on March 14 in which many Shriners participated,
among the notables were MW James Ford, RW
Mike McCool, RW Rick Hoover, RW Gene Hagan, W
Don Cowart along with several local Shriners, total
attendance 94 Masons, including our two candidates,
Brothers Sam Strom and Ghasan Hasan who are
possible candidates for the next Shrine Ceremonial,
June 6 is just around the corner.
Hernando Shrine
Club
By Noble Artie Lent
Our March Social, thank goodness, did not have
Corned Beef and Cabbage. I like Corned Beef and
Cabbage, but not seven nights in a row, if you know
what I mean. Good old Chicken and Dumplings, yeah;
and the desserts, and the finger-food – magnifique!
Once again, Ill. Sir Rich Leger and Lady Toby with

On March 3rd we had our Board and General meeting
with an excellent meal prepared by Larry Spaulding.
Everyone seems to really enjoy these dinners prior to
the General Meeting. Thank you Larry!
George Knauer is continuing to replace the ceiling
tiles in the hall which is greatly improving the
appearance for rentals. Thank you Larry!
The paper days have been successful. Thank you to
the volunteers.
The MARCH social was a St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
Everyone was Irish that day! Tony was playing some
Irish music along with his regular dance tunes. We
served Corn Beef and Cabbage as our meal to keep
with the tradition.
We welcome back Sally and Roy at the next social in
April. They always put on a great show.
Highlands Shrine
Club
By Noble Jerry Higginbotham
Greetings from the Ridge. Wow! March was a busy
month for the club with our St. Patrick’s social. Many
Nobles, ladies & guest displayed their green for the
occasion and needless to say a good time was had
by all. Also, we had our annual Spaghetti Dinner
fundraiser which was again very successful. Thanks
to Noble Jim Keaveny who chaired the project and all
the nobles and ladies that worked to make this event
a success.
We are very appreciative of all our northern nobles
and friends who continue to support our weekly
activities of Saturday Morning $5.00 Breakfasts,
flea markets, and shrine stores operations, Tuesday
Cards, Wednesday morning coffees, Friday Darts
and Bunco the 4th Tuesday of the month.
access, let us know and the newsletter will be mailed.
Many organizations have started to use the internet
for their newsletters as the internet is the best way to
get information to members promptly.
Also, Nobles and Masons don’t forget if you are
traveling to or thru Highlands County with a motor
home or RV, please keep the Shrine Club in mind
for an overnight stay or longer if you prefer. We have
4 spaces with electricity and water located on our
grounds in shaded areas. These accommodations
are reserved for Nobles and Masons only, at a very
nominal donation. So nobles and brothers, set your
GPS in our direction. We are located at 2604 State
Road 17, Avon Park, and Fl. For more information,
call our club at 863 382-2208, leave your name &
telephone number and we will get back to you shortly.
In closing, we urge all of our Nobles and Ladies to
plan to support your club more in 2015 by helping
with activities and attending the socials, business
meeting, special activities, etc. These activities are
planned for you but your support is needed to have a
successful year. Remember, this is your club. Isn’t it
great to be a Shriner! Until next month, Happy Easter
and God Bless.
Humidor Club
By Noble Joseph A. Sipos PP
Our April Social will be on Saturday, April 11th. Check
the newsletter for the theme for April. One thing
for sure, it will be a really fun night so make your
reservations right away if you have not already done
so. Call the Shrine office and leave your reservation
on the answering machine at 863 382-2208.
As any adult cigar aficionado can attest, there is
nothing worse than having one’s perfectly good
cigars get dried-out and become un-smokeable.
First, knowing a precious cigar was potentially
ruined because of forgetful negligence is a hard pill
to swallow. Secondly, actually holding a dry cigar is
depressing. However, depending on how long the
cigar has been dried, all hope is not lost. Take a
look at your dried-out cigar. If the wrapper remains
intact and there is no cracking or peeling, the cigar
is salvageable. If it has begun to unravel, just throw
it away, as the smoke will be altogether unpleasant.
Also, in an effort to cut cost, the newsletter is now on
the internet. If you have not been on our website, go
to www.highlandsshrine.com. This will get you on the
club website and then click on the HSC newsletter
and select the month. If you do not have internet
The most important thing to have when rescuing
dry cigars is patience. Most techniques take several
weeks to work, so remind yourself – this process
takes some time. Place the cigars in a humidor
that hasn’t been recharged lately and let the cigars
Sands Magazine - April 2015 • 13
absorb what is left of the humidity (a hygrometer is
particularly handy here). After a few days, recharge
the humidifier and reintroduce the cigar to a full
humid environment, ideally 70% humidity. The slow
moisture absorption is key here. Putting a dried-out
cigar in a freshly charged humidor causes moisture
to be absorbed too quickly. This can cause the dry
leaves to split open and ruin the cigar. After about four
to six weeks, the cigar may be ready to be smoked.
The formerly dried-out cigar may taste a little more
bitter than it usually would and burns quite hot, but
it’s perfectly smokeable and enjoyable.
Lakeland Shrine
Club
By Noble Roy “Woody” Woodside
The Lakeland Shrine Club continues to stay busy
with 26 trips to the Shrine Hospital in February. All
of those that transport the Shrine Children to their
appointments express the joy they experience as
they witness the transformation’s being made to
these children by the great work the hospital does.
To watch a child go from a wheelchair, to crutches,
to eventually walk without help is truly a blessing
in disguise. We invite you to come join us and
experience firsthand the work we all help to support.
I would like to thank Anthony Gordon at Jarrett Gordon
Ford in Davenport for making a donation to Shriner
Children by helping us obtain a 2014 Ford Van to
replace our old one. Because he was so generous
we were able to upgrade our van so we now don’t
have to worry about the safety of our Shrine Children
during transport.
Some of our members helped out with the Sam
Swope Memorial Charity Ride that took place at Bahia
Shrine on March 8th. This ride has raised close to 1
and ½ million dollars in the last 6 years that was all
donated to the Tampa Shrine Hospital. Sam Swope,
a very generous philanthropic man who donated a
large portion of the money raised, passed away in
December. This year’s ride was dedicated to him and
was a great success. We look forward to presenting
the hospital another large check on April 27th.
We had another well attended meeting in February
and welcomed two new members. We meet at
14 • Sands Magazine - April 2015
the Golden Corral on 98 N in Lakeland on the 4th
Thursday of the month. Everyone is welcome to join
us. Bring your ladies for a meal at 6:30 and stay for
the meeting at 7:30. We would love to see some new
faces.
New Port Richey
Shrine Club
By Noble Ron Bart
The origin of St. Valentine’s Day as a celebration of
love is lost in history. In fact, the origin of St. Valentine
is also lost. Valentine was a very popular name in
Roman times and three priests qualify as the “real”
St Valentine. On February twelfth in New Port Richey
there was very little concern about who the real St
Valentine might be. As the first meeting in our new
facility, the concern was for the quality of the food
and the skill of the bartenders. Fifty Shriners and
their ladies, which included six couples from Canada,
showed up for the event, so the pressure was on the
club to provide a party worthy of the occasion. The
meal choices were roast turkey breast or fried fish
and both were judged to have been excellent. In
honor of the day all of the ladies were presented with
a rose and a box of candy. The consensus was that
the party was a great success however there was a
request that the ladies be presented roses and candy
at every meeting. Our decision to change meeting
places was proven correct, in that our previous
meeting room would not have been big enough or as
comfortable for the number of people attending this
event.
Our speaker on that day was Carol Sue Roberts (last
name is not really necessary) and her main topic
was the Ladies of the Oriental Shrine. As usual her
presentation was very informative and well done.
Many of the guests were surprised at the interaction
of the LOS with the Shriners hospitals not just in
terms of money raised but also knit goods, etc. Carol
also gave descriptions of the Daughters of the Nile
and other organizations that included active roles for
women.
Make sure that your chaser is not a trooper. Here’s

Pinellas Shrine
Club
By Noble Doane N. Wright
This is our first contribution of news for our club
even though we have been organized for over a
year. Our officers for 2015 are Noble Jay Dingman,
President; Noble Trace Meek, Vice President; Noble
Chas Jordan, PP, Secretary; Noble Bill Sundquist,
Treasurer.
By forming this new club this group of younger
Shriners have breathed new life into Pinellas Shriners
who have seen several of the older Pinellas clubs go
away because of lack of interest. We must say they
are doing a fine job
Our club is the fastest growing shrine club connected
to Egypt Shrine. Six new members were voted in at
the February Meeting
Noble Dingman just happens to own the Barley
Mow Brewing Company of Largo FL. He recently
purchased a commercial property to expand his
brewing operation and has graciously given us space
in the building for a new Club Room. Nobles Ray
Jordan, Mel Roberts and Ray Terepka along with
other volunteers have generously donated furniture,
memorabilia, a new club banner, carpentry and
painting expertise to complete the renovation of the
space. As of this writing renovations to this space are
taking place and the writer is sure that this facility will
be the envy of every Egypt Shriner.
Past activities have included Noble Dingman
providing beer for the Block Party in Ybor City for
the Shriners and the Knight Parade. Our Nobles also
participated at the Shriners Fair Day. The club also
had a bar setup at the Tailgate Party for the East
West Shrine Game in January. So you can see we
are trying to make ourselves a valuable part of the
Egypt Shrine Activities.
We would like to encourage all Shrine Nobles to
check us out at our new Club Room on the Second
Tuesday of each month at 521 Commerce Dr. W.
Largo, FL 33770, 7:00 PM.
Sun City Center
Shrine Club
By Noble Don Churchill
APRIL, for our Club means PANCAKE Brunch Time.
Street sales at local supermarkets, planned by Gene
Welper and Bob Harris, get our Nobles lined up with
signs, tickets, aprons and smiles to collect donations
and sell tickets for the Pancake brunch.
For the actual brunch, George Banes leads the
kitchen crew in making enough pancakes to feed the
1,500 people expected. Past & Current Potentate,
Divan members and members of Showman’s club
can be seen working along with our Nobles cooking
the pancakes and sausage. Rich Leger has been
known to slip a few blueberries into some lucky
customers pancake.
The dining room at the community Hall only holds 400
customers at a time and our Nobles, wives, DeMolay
boys and Mom’s help set up, clean up and reset
tables so all enjoy their meal. In addition others help
serve seconds on coffee, pancakes and sausage.
When the clean up is over and everything is put
away for October; tired smiles are exchanged and
our old bones go home for a nap knowing we do this
for a great cause: Shiner Hospitals and the kids they
serve.
Monday will get us up and ready to do our part for the
Egypt Circus by ushering in the Big Top on Friday for
the two performances.
For others it will be working with Units to at the
Circus. For me, I become “Nibbles” the clown and
will be meeting and greeting kids and families when
they enter the circus grounds. Then it’s off to perform
a skit under the Big Top with the Fun & Frolic Clowns.
April; What a month for Shriners.
We look forward to raising money for the Shriners
Hospitals and the transportation fund; finding new
members and to everyone’s mission of Love to the
Rescue.

By Noble Scott Sandoval

The Director’s Staff enjoyed a wonderful month in

This month also brought the memorial service in
which we paid tribute to our fallen brothers.
We are finally nearing the Shriner Circus, so please

Also please remember our Corn Boil is coming up
fast on May 3rd! We are looking forward to these

By Noble Keith “Dash” Blair
March was a great month for the clowns with lots
of parades. I hope you’ve had a chance to get
some rest because this month will certainly not be
a time for slowing down. It’s the time of year again
when we get our chance to do what we do best
in an environment tailor made for Fun N’ Frolic!
Welcome to the 50th edition of the Egypt Shrine
Circus fellow clowns. Four days of clowning out
and entertaining kids and adults under the big top.

The Legion of Honor had their Change of Command
Ceremony on February 5, 2015, and the Stu Lang
Activities Center, at the Egypt Shrine. The Change
of Command Ceremony is an aged old tradition
in the military signifying the passing of command
from one the outgoing Commander (Nobel John
Kimmel) to incoming Commander (Nobel George
Fenno III).
The evening started out by Commander Fenno
and Lady Sheila putting on an amazing dinner with
nearly 70 people in attendance. The Leigonetts
helped get the tables, set up and decorated and
assisted in serving the food. The Hall looked great
and the stage was set for the Change of Command
to begin.
The procession was led by Illustrious Sir Luther
G. Baker Jr. and was trailed by the incoming
and outgoing Commanders, the Color Captain
(Nobel John Kueny), and the elected officers.
The Executive Officer (Nobel Jack Kemster) was
the narrator for the ceremony, and after taking
their places the Unit Standard were passed
from the Outgoing Commander to the Incoming
Commander. This was done for two reasons; first
to show confidence to the troops the leader (in
this case the Potentate) has confidence and trust
that the incoming Commander will care for, and
provide leadership to the members of the unit, and
secondly to give the members of the unit a rallying
point to gather in times of trepidation.
After the ceremony the elected officer had their
rank pined on: Lieutenat Colonel – Tom Bishop,
Major- Jim Thompson, Captain John Kueny,
First Lieutenant Dale Perry, First Lieutenant
Mike Penlan, First Lieutenant Mark Maxey, First
Lieutenant David Hobbs, Sergeant At Arms Chett
Tomas.
The evening ended with a few words from the
outgoing Commander John Kimmel, and the
incoming Commander George Fenno whose goal
it is to continue to provide support to the Shrine,
and to work with the other groups in the Shrine in
attempts to grow closer. Commander Fenno also
emphasized the need to get our younger members
involved and they are well represented in the up
and coming leadership within the Legion of Honor.
After the remarks by the incoming Commander
there was a Special Presentation made to a
veteran of WW II, Joe Varsalona.
Joe Varsalona was drafted into the Army Air Corps
on December 26th, 1942 and served until June
1945. He was assigned to the Army Air Force 483rd
Bomb Group, 15th division, and was stationed in
Foggia, Italy as a bombardier on B-17s flying over
fifty combat missions between April 1944 and April
1945.
While assigned to the 483 Bomb Group, Joe’s
Unit was responsible to hitting targets such as
factories, oil refineries, marshalling yards, storage
areas, airdromes, bridges, gun positions, and troop
concentrations in Italy, France, Germany, Poland,
Czechoslovakia, Austria, Hungary, Rumania,
Yugoslavia, and Greece. On July 18, 1944, and
again on March 24, 1945 the group received a
Distinguished Unit Citation for bravery in action.
Joe left the military without having received
commendations that were earned by him or his unit.
Tom Bishop presented Joe with the Presidential
Unit Medal, Victory in Western Europe Medal,
WWII Victory Medal, two miniature medals, and
the Outstanding Unit Ribbon. The LOH was proud
to have been able to recognize one of the unsung
heroes from WW II, who was finally recognized for
the contributions they made to this country.

Oriental Band
Provost Guard
By Noble Robert E. Stihler
By Noble Tom Edwards PP
Looking at the April 2015 calendar, I noted that on
Saturday, April 4th, is the Easter Egg Hunt. I fondly
remember during “days of yore”, when the Oriental
Band escorted the Easter Bunny to Hooper’s
Hollow. Things just don’t seem to stay the same
anymore...
May 7-9, 2015, will be the Florida Shrine
Association/Florida
Shrine
Oriental
Band
Association Convention at Sahib Shrine Center in
Sarasota, FL. Egypt’s Oriental Band Tong #54 is
planing to present a Mandarin Degree on Friday,
May 8th. Although the Degree is presented by
the Oriental Band - a reminder, that the Degree is
open to any Shriner so those Nobles of other Units
are invited and encouraged to “Meet the Mandarin”
and enjoy the “Masonic mysteries of the East”.
There were no Lady Birthdays in March, however
April finds a double-header with Lady Nancy
Kuncis on the 1st, and Lady Christine Martin on
the 11th. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Pharaohs
By Noble Jim Rocha
President James Griffin requests your assistance
during the kids’ Easter Egg hunt on April 4 and the
Military/Police/Fire appreciation on April 11, both in
Hooper’s Hollow.
And don’t forget our April 14 meeting - all Shriners
are invited as guests.
We have drill practices on the following dates: April
12, 19 and 26 at 11 AM. Bring your radios – and
don’t forget the new batteries.
Peace be with you.

Thanks to all the Guard members and ladies who
supported the February Fair Day at the Florida
State Fair. We had a great time escorting buses,
serving hot dogs and cokes, covering rides, and
arranging for the children to enjoy the Fair. The
Guard helped make this a special day for those
children and adults. That’s what we are all about!
Have you ever taken the time to look at the back
of a dollar bill? It should remind us of the freedoms
we enjoy as Americans. The “Great Seal” on the
left and the Latin words tell us a new nation has
begun as it emerges from a revolution. Another
quotation around the top of the pyramid says “He
(God) has favored our undertaking.” The pyramid
suggests something of Egypt slavery. At the bottom
is a “seeing eye” – a symbol of God’s watch over a
new land of freedom. There are thirteen blocks of
the pyramid to correspond to the thirteen original
colonies.
On the right hand side is a floral medallion with an
eagle on top. Thirteen stars can be seen and the
eagle is a replica of the America flag with a vertical
row of thirteen stripes emblematic of the thirteen
colonies.
The eagle once considered the symbol of America
holds an olive branch in one of its talons, the
symbol of peace. The other talon holds either
arrows or sheaves of wheat, symbols of military
preparedness or growing industry. Around the
head of the eagle is written “E Pluribus Unum”
meaning out of many one nation. At the center are
the words “In God We Trust” which are words not
written by chance.
If you missed the March 19th Provost Guard
Covered Dish Dinner and Meeting you missed a
great night out. Green was the color of the night.
The Marshal and Lady Jean had fun and the room
looked great. Thank you to all the Provost Ladies
for their favorite dish! And a special “Tip of the Fez”
to Chef Brent for a great meal.
It will be a busy April with Council Meetings, Easter
Egg Hunt, Appreciation Day, Lodge Visits, and
the 2015 Shrine Circus April 16-19. And mark
your calendars for the Florida Shrine Association
(FSA) Meetings at Sahib Shrine on May 7-10. We
will hold our regular P.G. Meeting at the Circus on
Thursday April 16th.
Remember our commitment to Membership and
get those petitions into the office for the Spring
Ceremonial. The Guard’s challenge is to get new
members for the Shrine. Let’s go Guard!
All Nobles in good standing are welcome to join
with the Egypt Shrine Provost Guard. We meet on
the third Thursday of each month at 7:30 P.M. in
the Unit Room. Come out and join with us.
worthwhile for all Nobles, and their Ladies, and it
is a great opportunity to get together and celebrate
the new Potentate while dancing the night away.
Just watching the Director’s Staff entrance was
worth the price of admission!
March is full of parades, and the biggest of all
is the Chasco Fiesta Parade. This parade takes
place annually in New Port Richey, and has the
potential of attracting over 75,000 spectators each
year. There is a lot to do after the parade, and it
is a great family event; if you missed it this year,
please add it to your schedule for next year. The
Shriner’s active presence in this parade not only
promotes our cause for our children, but could
possibly attract new Blue Lodge members into
our fraternity. The goal is to always have fun, look
sharp and promote a positive image for our Temple.
As Brother Roosevelt once stated, “The only man
who never makes a mistake, is the man who never
does anything”. Don’t forget the upcoming Scottish
Rite Reunion on April 11th and 18th.

As the Tin Lizzies roll along into March, we are
preparing for the 50th Egypt Shrine Circus in April,
and working on perfecting the critical maneuvers
required for capturing a victory at the upcoming
FSA meeting in May.
We are also discussing the introduction of using
sophisticated video production techniques to

Editor’s Notes
Fellow Nobles:
If you didn’t skip ahead to the Editor’s Notes (I bet everyone does) you’ve surely noticed the
temple bylaws being provided in this month’s issue. This is to allow all Egypt Shrine nobles the
opportunity to review the bylaws and proposed changes in order to make informed decisions when
voting on them at the April stated meeting.
With the many pages of bylaws included something had to get cut and unfortunately it was many
great pictures taken by our Press Corps. All is not lost however. If you’ve been reading the Sands
recently, you already know I’m posting all photos I receive online at our web site. This seems like
a great opportunity to remind everyone that we would love to have your photographs of any Egypt
Shrine related events. Our Press Corps photographers do a great job but they can’t be everywhere
all the time. If you’ve got some photos you’re willing to share please contact me at [email protected]
egyptshrine.org and I’ll be happy to include them. As a reminder you can reach the photo gallery
at the following web address - http://gallery.egyptshrine.org
Until next month, have a safe and wonderful April. I look forward to seeing everyone at the Circus!
