"Clownin’ for a smile"

   Hello Nobles and Ladies,

   Lady Pam and I hope that you have been enjoying your summer and were able to take some time away for a family vacation. Sometimes we are so busy trying to make a living for our family that we get too busy to make a life with our family. Take the time to make a life.
   Since our last article, Lady Pam and I had the honor of being one of the representatives for Al Sihah at the 140th Imperial Session in Minneapolis. What a wonderful and fulfilling trip. Our own Keel Broom was named Emeritus for the Colorado Corporation and Bill Harding was named Emeritus for the Iowa Corporation. Congratulations to both.
    If you didn’t make it to SESA in Jacksonville, you missed a great time. A special thanks to our Chief Aide Tim Tschirhart and Lady Renee. You did good! Also thanks to Peggy Sim and Sheila Phillips for the awesome breakfasts. Al Sihah came away with several trophies and recognitions: Keel Broom elected as 3rd Vice President, Southeastern Shrine Association; Jimmy Gay elected as 3rd Vice President, Southeastern Shrine Provost Guard; Don Gates elected President, Southeastern Shrine Hillbillly Association; Dan Kitchens, past President Southeastern Shrine Legion of Honor was elected Treasurer for the Southeastern Shrine Legion of Honor. Al Sihah Provost Guard won 1st Place for the Uniform Competition. Larry Whisnant won 1st Place in Fun Class Car. Charlie Archer and Ken Warrentook 1st Place for Antique Original Truck, 3rd Place for Paradaility representing the Al Sihah Hillbillies. The Lady Jinxettes received Gold Recognition for their $1,000 donation to the Greenville Hospital.
   Do you know what the holiday Labor Day is all about? According to the Department of Labor’s website, Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
   Upcoming events for September:
1st - Labor Day and the Temple is closed
3rd - Family Night - Aide Corps will provide meat and drinks. Bring a dish and a guest to enjoy the camaraderie
7th - 11th Potentate’s Trip to Las Vegas
17th - Temple Meeting - Dinner 6:00 Meeting 7:00
21st - Shrine Circus in Columbus/Ft. Benning

Aspire to Inspire before you Expire!

God Bless,

James L. Piper
Potentate 2014

   Nobles, Lady Pam has a game for all to play. It’s “Find the Potentate’s Upside-Down Fez”. Potentate James has lost his Fez. It is hiding somewhere in this issue of the Mystic Messenger. Be the first person to email (first choice) or call (second choice) the Temple Office with the correct location and to claim your prize!
