The Potentate’s Message

Es Selamu Aleikum

Greetings Illustrious Sirs and Nobles,

Well it's good to be home and safe after Hurricane Dorian made her presence
felt in Virginia Beach. I would like to thank all the units and clubs and members who
made the trip and made the best of the situation. The hospitality crew kept the room
well stocked with food and beverages. Thank you for your hard work and dedication
to Rajah Shrine. It doesn't go unnoticed.

I need to send a shout out to Provost Guard for their work at the Pote's Picnic and
the Sportsman Raffle. Next year I promise to make sure you get fed at both events. The
Sportsman Raffle was another great success and thank you to everybody for working
together to make it a great day. See you next year.

The Ladies Divan Jewelry Raffle is October 19th, don't forget to buy your tickets
and get them back to the committee members. Susie is looking forward to another
successful event. This can only happen if everybody continues to pitch in.

Calendar day will be October 20th, don't forget to send an officer to represent your
Unit or Club. October 26th is the Pretzel Bowl Football game at Albright. Please plan to attend and be a part
of the Shrine parading on the field prior to the game.

As we round third base and start heading for home plate, remember we have many Holiday Parties and
the Full Ceremonial on December 14th still on the schedule. Please continue to support all the Units and
Clubs.

Yours in the faith,

Michael J. Zerbe

Illustrious Potentate
