Our February meeting is
going to honor our Members
of 25 years that have not
been recognized previously.
The honored guest will get a
special invitation.
Potentate’s Notions
Our March meeting will
honor those of 35-year
membership and our May
meeting will honor the
50-year members.
Nobles, Noble Wives and
Friends
Our April meeting will be at
the Cactus Creek Steak
House where we will have a
choice of Prime Rib,
Walleye and Chicken.
January has been a social
month so far, but is turning
into a business at hand time.
It’s time for me to remind
myself to “Giddy Up Bro.”
Keep spreading the good
word about the Shrine, what
we for kids and our
hospitals, and the research
that is being developed.
We had a nice January
meeting with good
attendance and a wonderful
meal. This brings me to Bob
Snow’s request to PLEASE
remember to make your
reservation for the monthly
meal. He’ll always make a
few extra meals but the
difference between 30 and 60
people is NOT doable.

Jim Hanifan and Tommie Frazier Selected
for East-West Shrine Game Hall of Fame
1/16/2015 1:09:00 PM Shriners Village
More than 40 years separates when Jim Hanifan, a former receiver at the University
of California and Tommie Frazier, a quarterback out of the University of Nebraska,
played college football. Yet these all-stars will be inducted together into the EastWest Shrine Game Hall of Fame in ceremonies for the January 17, 2015 contest.
When Hanifan played for the West in the 1955 game, he was coming off a college
season with the Golden Bears in which he led the nation in receiving. Hanifan
played professionally for just one season in the Canadian Football League (Toronto
Argonauts), but he would go on to make a name for himself in the NFL as an elite
offensive line coach. In fact, Hanifan was coaching at that post when he garnered
Super Bowl rings with two different teams—the 1991 Redskins and the 1999 St.
Louis Rams.
Hanifan began his coaching career in the college ranks as an assistant with the
University of Utah (1966 – 69), then California (1970 – 71), and San Diego State
(1972). He came to the NFL in 1973 as the offensive line coach for the St. Louis
Cardinals—a role he filled for five years, earning NFL Assistant Coach of the Year
Honors in 1977. He spent a year with the San Diego Chargers in 1979 before
returning to the Cardinal’s club as head coach (1980 – 85). He would later serve as
an assistant and interim head coach with the Atlanta Falcons before moving on the
Redskins (1990 – 1996) and the Rams (1997 – 2003). Additionally, Hanifan
worked as color commentator for the Ram’s radio broadcast team from 2004 – 08.
With two national championships at Nebraska (1994 and 1995) under his belt,
Tommie Frazier was the epitome of a college football star when he participated in
the 1996 East-West Shrine Game. A four-year starter for the Cornhuskers, Frazier
ended his senior year ranked first on the team in total offense with 1,996 yards
(178.7 per game), third in scoring with 7.8 points per game, and second in rushing
with 604 yards on 97 attempts. He was recognized as first-team All American
quarterback by AP, UPI and Walter Camp … among several other organizations. It
was probably no surprise then that Frazier would come out of the 1996 Shrine game
as the ‘Most Outstanding Offensive Player’ and ‘Offensive MVP’ after directing his
West team to a 34 – 18 victory.
Even years later, Frazier continues to impress. Sports Illustrated named him to its
85-Player All-Century Team, and he is considered one of the 10 greatest college
football players of the century according to Sport magazine. In 2013, he was elected
to the College Football Hall of Fame. Injuries prevented Frazier from playing
professionally, but he was an assistant football coach at Baylor University, and an
assistant director of athletic development at Nebraska. Frazier also served as head
football coach for Doane College.
Upon learning of his induction in the Hall of Fame, Frazier recalled his own
experience as a player in the Shrine Game. He noted that the event is truly “more
than just a game.”
“My favorite part about the experience was visiting the kids at the Shriners Hospital
for Children. Knowing that we put smiles on those kids’ faces is what it’s all
about,” Frazier said. “The game had a positive effect on me personally because it
showed how I can give back to others. I strive to continue that work in my life now
by working with kids in communities that are less fortunate. The East-West Shrine
Game is about playing football, and giving back.”
Though their playing days were decades apart, Jim Hanifan shares Frazier’s
sentiment as to what participating in the game means to a young man. “I really
didn’t know anything about the Shriners,” he recalled. “I just knew the game was a
really big deal. But once you go to the hospital, you’re like, ‘oh I get it now,’ and
you see what it’s all about. Ever since then, I’ve been a huge fan of Shriners and
their mission.”
Hanifan, who also coached the West Team in 2008, added, “I think anyone who has
ever played in an East-West Shrine Game will tell you it’s very different from any
other all-star game. The others are only about showing off athletic ability … but in
this game, you feel like you are also helping these kids.”
About the East-West Shrine Game
Originating in 1925, the East-West Shrine Game is the longest-run the country and
features some of the highest-rated players in the projected NFL draft ranking. While
the teams are divided by East and West, the players come together for the
beneficiary of the event, Shriners Hospitals for Children. Learn more at
www.shrinegame.com.

LEO (July 23-Aug 22) Month begins with ego in
speech and sub conscious. You will realize half way
into the month that working with others is better than
having others work against you. This will bring in
growth as well as progress. Your status and public
image would look upwards now too.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21) Career will be
high on your priority and bring in a high level of
growth in the first half of the month. Authority and
confidence would be high. Opposition to your ideas
and issues in marriage and relations could come in
the second half of the month. Ego should be
controlled as that could be the reason for the issues in
marriages etc.

venues in and about the city.
Now it’s time for us ALL to dust off our axes and get back
to rehearsals. The Director was overheard thinking aloud
about more retirement home concerts and we have only seven
Tuesdays to get our chops up for a blistering six-day Circus

Recorders Notes
The New Year is upon us, and
with the New Year comes new
and challenging tasks. Soon I
will travel to San Diego to the
Recorders Seminar to not only
work with other Recorders from
Temples. I will
have the opportunity to have hands on
experience with the
new membership
program called
“WebFez”
In February, most of the Divan is
heading to Nile Shrine in Seattle,
Washington for the Pacific
Northwest Shrine Association
winter meeting. This is my 7th
year as Executive Director. I am
honored to be in that position to
bring together the Nobles from
the 18 Shrine Temples in the
Northwest. This year, Imperial
is changing the format of their
annual Membership Seminar in
Tampa. Instead of travelling to
Tampa for the annual meetings,
Imperial is bringing the membership team to the associations. We
will also hear from Gizeh Shriners in Vancouver, BC, Canada
about their “Internet” Stated meetings. This should
be interesting to
learn how they Tile
the meeting, when
you’re on a web cam somewhere
outside the Shrine Temple.
I look forward to serving as your
Recorder again this year, and
please stop by with positive
questions any time.

the arrivals and getting all registered. Thanks to the Brass Band for their flawless performance which all enjoyed the
holiday tunes. The Oriental Band did a great job also. The kids loved your performance. Our games were few but the kids
had fun. Thanks to Mr. And Mrs. Swenson and Mike McClurg who manned the “Dart” game. Thank you to Fred Kimball
and Ira Andrews who manned the football toss. Bean Bag toss thanks to those who were there. Thanks to Sue Paul for
painting all of those lovely faces. The soda pop bar was manned by Jack Underwood, Mike Redenius and Patty. They had

fun. Dick Paul was in charge of heating the hot dogs. Great job Dick! The cooking crew was kept busy by serving - Hot
Dogs and Buns, Chicken Strips, Beans and Potato Salad. Great Big thank you to Charlie at Suds Hut. All ate well, thanks
again! Can’t forget a new entry to the party, the “Widows” Sons who had 4 motorcycles for the kids to sit on and have their
picture taken. Thanks to Randy Becker and Friends! Santa Clause was a big hit and his helper Oscar Olson and the
Chocolate Snowmen donated from Brockels Chocolates. Santa is willing to come back next year thanks to Roger
Bernhardt. Another great happening was the hard work of Sandy and her chairty “Blankets and Bears” for giving out
pillows, blankets and teddy bears to the all of the kids in attendance. Last but not least the remaining Snowmen and treat
sacks were donated to the MRM Women’s and Children’s Center downtown Billings. So happy to receive goodies! One
more thank you goes out to Terri and Mike Widdicombe the Shrine Office Secretary. Being there when needed, opening
doors, finding keys and keeping the information going. Big help Terri! Thanks from all.
