The Potentate’s Message
Es Selamu Aleikum
Greetings Illustrious Sirs and Nobles,
It is a great honor to be your elected Potentate of Rajah Shrine for 2021. I thank you for your continued support, encouragement and hard work in the past and the future.
This year we are continuing to place much emphasis on increasing membership and getting more nobles involved. Each year our membership numbers decline and we are encouraging you to promote the shrine to your Blue Lodge, other masonic bodies, or quality men that share the same values as we do.
We are also charging our nobles to support a club/unit that may be one that they are not currently involved with. This may be done by attending a meeting, social function, or fundraiser. Take the opportunity to know your fellow Nobles. We need to stay strong as one and push forward during these uncertain pandemic times.
One important change to this year’s schedule is the Rajah Circus. This event date is moved to October 20-24 at the Hamburg Field House. We expect another outstanding and fun show. We always welcome volunteers to help with this fundraiser. I would also like to invite the Nobility and guests to the Pote’s Ball on May 1st at the Double Tree in Reading, PA. Lastly, I would like to mention the Potentate’s Trips to The Ark in Kentucky on
March 25-28 and The Canadian Rockies/Glacier National Park on June 16-22.
The motto for this year is Healing With Tradition. This is in honor of my Pennsylvania Dutch Heritage, my medical profession, and the history of our Shriner’s Children’s Hospital. With our hard work and dedication to our cause, we can do great things for the children and keep the tradition going.
Janet and I look forward to serving you and Rajah Shrine and thank you again for all that you do!
Yours in the Faith,Illustrious Kraig W. Leiby
