The Main Deck Is Hopping With Fun!
Nobles and Ladies,
As always, let me begin by offering my sincere thanks to all of the Nobles and Ladies for the work you do for Aleppo Shriners and your dedication to our Fraternity.
In addition to burn injuries, children come to Shriners Chldren’s Boston for treatment of complex skin conditions, as well as plastic, laser and reconstructive surgeries for burn scars, wounds, trauma injuries, and cleft lip and palate care. Helping these children is the most gratifying experience.
Lady Jo and I hope you all enjoyed the Aleppo Family Day as much as we did. We had 330 attend, and it was great to see so many deserving Nobles, Ladies and families! The BBQ was delicious, and DJ Rick Desantes kept the party going!
Summer is just about over, and we have been busy. The All-Star Football Classic was a great success. Thank you to Illustrious Dennis Reebel and the Football Committee for all their hard work.
That was followed by the NSA in Concord, NH. The highlight was having Kaleb, one of the most recognizable Shriners Children’s Ambassadors, there. He is an amazing patient with an amazing family. It was an utmost pleasure to have been able to spend time with them.
Thank you to Chief of Staff Paul Watts, Sr. for getting so many parades this past season, and for the upcoming parades this fall. Other thank yous to Colonel David Fink for his endless dedication in directing all of us, Mark Norton for his dedication for making sure all the vehicles and transportation run smoothly, and to Carl Ohlson who is always ready with his camera and a smile.
Thank you to the South Shore Shrine Club, the Gardner and Fitchburg Shrine Clubs and everyone else for your generous contributions and fellowship.
To the Clown Unit, thank you for a very fun day and making me one of you! Say what!
Lady Jo and I would like to extend a warm holiday greeting to all the Nobles and their families and to all the children and their families being taken care of at our Hospitals and clinics.
We have tons of events coming up at the Aleppo Shrine Center over the next several months. There is something for everyone and we look forward to seeing you at these events. Just to give you a taste of what’s coming, we have the HONS Fair, the Swing Band Party, a Ceremonial, Music Bingo, Dueling Pianos, and much, much more!
ES SALAAM ELEIKUM Fraternally,
