From the Potentate
Wow! It’s hard to believe that 2022 is here and I am so looking forward to a great year working with our Divan, Nobles, and Ladies. First of all, I would like to thank everyone in attendance of our business meeting and Nobility Ball. I especially want to thank all of you that helped Pam & I put it all together. Please remember that each and every one of you are, and will be, an important part of everything we do in 2022!
As we begin our new year in celebrating our anniversaries, our ties are reuniting with appending bodies. Grand Master, MW Brother, Ron C. Mitchum, DGM, Steven Hames, SW, Tommy Watson, GT, Jack Morrow, & GS, Gerald Carver were all in attendance of the annual business meeting. In attendance of our Nobility Celebration, GM, MW, Ron Mitchum & Lady Sue, GT, Jack Morrow & Lady Sammy, & GS, Gerald Carver & Lady Sue. Let’s continue to strengthen our relationship and grow membership through our Masonic and Shriner families.
I would also like to thank & strongly support our new membership Nobles; David Williams, Jonathan Godfrey, Chris Griffin, and Ron Staggs for volunteering their time to attend the membership training seminar. This is a huge asset for Hejaz but remember, every Noble is part of MEMBERSHIP, and these guys will be willing to share with you what they learn. With everyone’s help, I’m positive that we can achieve new goals in 2022!
Pam & I are also working to get our ladies more involved. If your club or unit is interested in starting a ladies’ auxiliary, please contact Pam or me. Ladies are a huge asset to our organization. They can also help with membership!
Kicking off the year, we will represent Hejaz at SESA, where Champ Champion, PP of Hejaz is President, SASA, and newly joined Dixie Association, midwinter meetings. We will be supporting our Circus & our SC Grand Lodge annual communication.
In closing, I would like to remind everyone that our calendars are very informative. For those that don’t have one you can contact me. If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to call any one of our Divan members, Chief Aides, or Area Reps. It’s going to be a great year. We need you in 2022!
