MEMORANDUM


Fellow Nobles,

Fall is here! We only have one more parade, the Pumpkin Fest, and that is on Saturday, October 13th. I need to know who can go, we need drivers. On October 11th we will hold our Hornet Reverse Drawing. It is at the Youngsville Fire Hall, and I am asking for your help. There are many jobs that need done in order to make it a success. Where are you willing to help? We need all hands on deck. We also are putting a dinner together for Sunday, October 21st.

Our meeting night is October 8th and we will be holding election of officers. For Warren County we need to fill the secretary and either 1st or 2nd vice-president, depending on what Mike Trisket chooses. If you have any ideas please call me or Ed Carr, hopefully before the meeting. We will be holding a written ballot, so please bring pen or pencil with you.

Thank you, and I hope to see all of you on October 8th, 11th, 13th, and 21st.

Respectfully,

Mike Soliday

Brother & Noble


The Silent Messenger


A tall man walked along a road with a young girl in one arm and her crutches in the other. A stranger approached intrigued by this man walking on this road wearing an Arabian looking hat he would learn was called a fez. Curious, he asked the man, “What are you doing carrying this child on this road less traveled?” The man replied, “I am helping all of the children in need.” The stranger replied that he could not possibly help all of the children in need, there must be millions. To which the man replied without hesitation, “That may be but I can help this one.” The fact is this man was not walking alone; he was walking on a path set by thousands who had walked before him. This man was a Shriner doing what Shriners do; helping children in need one child at a time. Walking a road less traveled carrying a single child, a silent messenger. This was not the first time this man had carried a child. Fifty years before he would get up before the sun and help fix pancakes for an annual pancake breakfast. This man was always the first to arrive and the last to leave. With each pancake sold, one more child carried by a silent messenger. When there was a job to be done that would help a child there was no need to ask, he was always there. Millions have enjoyed a Shrine Circus. This Shriner would help line up needed volunteers and purchase and sell novelties to raise money for a transportation fund used to carry local children to a Shrine Hospital for treatment. With each volunteer and novelty sold, one more child carried by a silent messenger. At each Shrine Circus, they would sell hundreds of balloons on a stick. To blow up the balloons this Shriner built a special bowl to hold balloons with a rubber tipped air jet used to fill the balloons. With each balloon sold, one more child carried by a silent messenger.
