I’ll start o with a special p of the Fez to our Zor Imagineers and supporng members on winning two Dromedary Awards. One for our Facebook page and the other for Instagram. Lady Sharon and myself aended the Shriners Imperial Session in Houston. Zor was well represented with 13 Nobles and their Ladies. I had the opportunity to compete and parade with the Mavericks. They did not disappoint and won awards. We also went to Sioux City, Iowa for the Midwest Shrine Associaon. Again, Zor was well represented, 20 Nobles and Ladies made the trip. The Mavericks were award winners. Sawduster Randy Johnston won rst place in Auguste clown and teaming up with another Shrine clown received an award for their two-man skit. The Funsters provided conveyed me in both parades in their 1902 Flint. How much beer can it be that to have Batman as your driver. This summer we’ve also been able to parade with the Firehouse Jesters, Midgets and the Mini Cars. It’s always a blast to spend me with our Brothers and Ladies! We have also been able go to the Zor Directors Stas Annual Ladies Appreciaon Night, the “Beer Late than Never” Potentate Dinner for Potentate Barry Ausen, Mehara Shrine Club steak fry, Heart of WI Shrine Club Potentates steak fry, Mini Picnic, Sahara Shrine Club Brat & Corn Feed, LaCrosse Shrine Clubs Potentate Picnic and a combined meeng of the SW Shrine Club, Mound View Shrine Club and Pine River Shrine Club. On August 19th my Lady Sharon fell down the stairs and broke her hip. She had a paral hip replacement and currently is using a walker to get around. This might curtail her ability to come to events for a while but I’ll make every eort to be there if I can. There are many events sll coming up and please check your Zephyr and/or the calendar on the Zor Shriner website. Most WorshipableGrand Master(Love You Brother)and Lady   Page 2  •

I personally would like to say thank you to all the clubs and units that have been out parading this summer, I hope everyone had a wonderful me!If you have not received your dues renewal noce in the mail, it should be arriving soon. Please remember that you need to renew your membership before December 31, 2021 for the year 2022. If you do not renew your membership technically you are not considered to be an acve Noble on January 1, 2022 unl you have paid your dues.Speaking of dues, approximately 88 nobles who are in arrears with not having paid your 2021 dues. If you are one of the Nobles who have not paid your 2021 dues, please do so when you pay your 2022 dues. The last thing we want to do is have several Nobles being suspended for non-payment of dues. If you need assistance, please call the Temple and the sta is more than willing to assist you some of the payment opons available.The table below shows our current membership numbers for the month of September:Speaking of membership, I am currently looking for Nobles who would be interested serving on the ZOR Membership Team. Zorland is divided into three areas, I would like to have 5 or 6 members on each team. The responsibility of the teams is to contact the clubs and units in their respecve area monthly. The Membership Teams meet with the Membership Chairman once a month to update the membership chairman on the progress of the seeking new members and reinstang the suspended members. If you are interested in joining this fun team, please contact me at In closing, please remember membership is everyone’s business and start hunng out those Master Masons who would make a great Shriner at your respecve Blue Lodges.

Shriners Children’s Twin Cities is now offering walk-in pediatric injury care, Monday - Friday from 7:30 am – 4:00 pm. Children can been seen right away by an orthopedic specialist and receive wrap-around care from our multidisciplinary team at Shriners Children’s Twin Cities. At every age, kids take sports and play seriously. Kids are not small adults and therefore, cannot be treated in the same way. At Shriners Children’s Twin Cities, we specialize in pediatric orthopedic care for infants and children up to age 18. We provide pro-level care at critical stages of development. We know kids better, so we can treat them better and get them back to what they love quickly and safely. Children should be referred to an orthopedic specialist if they have an obvious injury – such as pain, swelling, or inability to move or bear weight – or if they have no obvious injury, but have persistent complaints of pain or limping. Conditions seen at our walk-in clinic include, but are not limited to: • Sprains • Strains • Fractures • Broken Bones • Sports Injuries • Play Injuries Please keep in mind we do not have an Emergency Department on-site; therefore, spine injuries and concussions should go to the appropriate facility. Should you have questions, please call 612-596-6100. In order to get children back into action safely, complete follow-up care is available from our providers and our supporting departments at every visit: • Physical Therapy • Occupational Therapy • Radiology • Child Life By choosing Shriners Children’s, patients have access to nearly 1,200 doctors in one of the largest pediatric specialty healthcare systems in the world — the most amazing care anywhere. Shriners Children’s Twin Cities treats children regardless of the families’ ability to pay. We accept and bill private insurance and Medicaid. However, all in-house care is provided regardless of coverage or coverage limitations. Should you have questions regarding walk-in services, or other services at Shriners Children’s Twin Cities, our Professional Relations department is here to provide information needed to ensure pediatric patients are receiving the orthopedic care they deserve. We would love to be a resource for you and your team.

Armenia is a small country , about the size of Hawaii, nestled between Turkey, Iran, Georgia and Azerbaijan.Mari was originally slated for the trip to the Shrine Hospital in 2020, however Covid changed all that for this bright eyed young girl, now 6 years old.Having to wait a year for treatment has caused her condion to worsen somewhat, but the Hospital sll accepted her. Dr Tashjian will travel to Philadelphia to be with her during the start of her treatment at Shriners. He will stay in Philadelphia unl a treatment plan is developed. Mari and her mother do not speak English, so having a doctor there they know will help them make their adjustment to America.Young Mari has never le the country before so there is a lot of fear involved in the trip. That fear will be eased by the good people at Shriners and Dr Tashjian.The family of Mari Alexanyan is shown with Dr Tashjian during I recently spoed a yer that said, “Benet Fish Fry Supper” and “All Proceeds Benet the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital.” Being that it was only a two hour drive to Whitehall, WI, I decided to check it out. Whitehall is nestled between Eau Claire and La Crosse, WI.Wow, was I taken by surprise when I pulled into the driveway! There was a manicured lawn, beauful gardens, well maintained buildings, 35 parked Amish buggies, and 100-125 Amish people. That’s when I realized this benet was being put on by the Amish community. The women were dressed in long skirts and tended to the preparing and serving of the food cooked on gas or wood fed stoves. The younger women were taking care of siblings and younger kids while assisng in the kitchen and other responsibilies. The men were working together on many acvies including the making of homemade ice cream in a 5-gallon ice cream container powered by a John Deere gas engine. I observed the sh being fried, side dishes being prepared, and the smell of many fresh baked pies; those pies later being served a’la mode with the homemade ice cream. This benet was put together with an impressive 600 pounds of sh, 55 gallons of cooking oil, countless side dishes, never ending assortment of pies and 40 gallons of homemade ice cream all prepared and served without electricity.The social opportunity allowed Zor Potentate Mark Jerdee, Lady Sharon and myself to walk around and talk with others. We were being “thanked” me aer me for everything the Shriners provide. Many of the people were Amish parents who have kids as paents or former paents at the Twin Cies or Chicago locaons. They were so very grateful; and the eort put into this benet was conrmaon. Zor has hospital vans that provide paents with transportaon and some of these paents live in eligible transport areas. I recently received a call from Mahlon and Millie Miller, the gracious hosts of this event. Mahlon said they esmated serving between 500-700 people; an exact count was dicult as many people came in by van loads and others enjoyed seconds of the food. Mahlon was excited to share their rst ever benet for the Shriners had the net proceeds of $7573 going to the Shriners Children’s Twin Cies.I hope they have this benet again next year, if so, rest assured there will be more fezzes.(Pictures were not taken per request of this event sta.)

Every year, except last year, the St. Croix Valley Shrine Club sponsors the Potentate’s dinner marking the beginning of the University of Wisconsin -River Falls annual homecoming celebraon. This year, following an extended period of masks and isolaon, the members of the club pulled out all the stops. Not only did they host a special dinner for the Fighng Falcons of River Falls during the week, but they also paid tribute to members who made the weekend event so special. Roger Keller of the Divan was the Master of Ceremonies for the dinner held at Juniors in downtown River Falls.In his remarks Roger introduced the Grand Lodge ocers in aendance which included Most Worshipful Grand Master Gary Stang of Eau Claire and other vising dignitaries including Mark Jerdee this year’s Zor Potentate. Others in aendance were the St. Croix Valley Shrine Club President Ed Swenson and the 2021-22 president elect Carl Gaulke. The guests of honor at the banquet were the Parade Grand Marshal Brock Haverland of New Richmond and his mother Melissa LaLiberty and her daughter Avalyn.Past Potentates Gary Cuskey, Barry Ausen, and Larry Riemenschneider were also introduced.
