STATED MEETING - OPEN Zem Zem 5pm, Dinner 6pm, Meeting 7pm
-- Yours In The Faith, Illustrious Sir James Hutchins, Potentate
by Craig Jacobson
First and foremost, I would like to say once again what an honor it is to serve as your Potentate for 2013. Lady Marilyn and I are proud to serve on the Divan and we have enjoyed representing Nile Temple at the 2013 Shrine Imperial session, PNSA’s, parades and all other activities. Your support, friendship and kindness are gifts we cherish.
The combined efforts of the elected and appointed Divan, officers and members of Nile’s clubs and units and all of Nile’s volunteers have resulted in a great year so far. The business activities of golf, restaurant and facility rentals have been successful. And our hospital philanthropy continues to prosper. This is a result of Nile’s cadre of member volunteers and ap- pointed and elected officers who have supported Nile in an admirable fashion this year. I am proud to be a Nile Shriner.
I look forward to seeing and spending time with you at our upcoming events. We have a number of enjoy- able and beneficial major events coming up in the next few months. Be sure to read the Smile with Nile calendar for details about all of them. Some of the major events include;
1. October 5th - The Granite Falls parade is our last parade for 2013. Come and join us for this short pa- rade. It is a lot of fun.
2. October 9th - Plan now to attend the Open Stated Meeting in which ladies and guests are invited. The guest of honor for this meeting will be Noble Davis Korsmoe, Nile Temple’s Superintendent of Grounds for 41 years. Noble Davis retired several months ago, and this is our chance to honor him for making the Nile Golf Course such a beautiful and profitable place for our Temple to reside.
3. October 11th - We will hold our bi-annual Hospital Appreciation Luncheon. This year we are co-hosts with Daughters of the Nile. Please see the ad for this important event in this issue of the Smile with Nile.
4. Also on October 11th - Nile opens its annual Haunted House. This year the event is sponsored by KZOK Radio. Therefore, it has been officially named the “KZOK Haunted Nightmare at Nile.” This haunt- ing event (pun intended) will be held each Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting October 11th. The final night of haunting will be Friday, November 1st. Bring your whole family and prepare for a fun fright.
5. October 12th - Two of our ladies concordant bodies have events here at Nile. Daughters of the Nile have their “Walk for Awareness” in the morning and Ladies Oriental Shrine holds their annual fund raising auc- tion and dinner, Over the Moon, starting at 4:00 pm. Both these organizations use their fundraisers exclu- sively to support our Shriners Hospitals for Children.
6. November 2nd – The 2013 Nile Ceremonial will begin at noon at Nile. This is a change from your
It’s time to talk about electing 2014 Officers for Nile Shrine. Now more than ever, we need to elect competent, motivated Offi- cers at all levels. Leaders of our Units and Clubs and members of the Divan must be up to the challenges before us.
All to often, only a few an- swer the call because few are equipped to lead without sup-
port to make them successful. We have many examples of this and it’s effects on units and clubs.
Part of the problem is individuals standing in the way of progress. They don’t like change and will stand in the way of it even when it is desperately needed. You know who they are and you may feel powerless to stop them.
You DO have the power with your vote to send a mes- sage. It’s time we stop holding on and start moving on. Will you elect the past to keep things the way they are or will you elect a positive future for the Nile. WE can make positive changes and inspire new members and veteran members to go in new directions.
Elect those who demonstrate they care about you, value your ideas, recognize your input, listen and look you straight in the eye and tell you the truth. It’s called integrity. Do not elect those who are self serving, ar- rogant and will talk behind your back. Elect leaders, not puppets or yes men. You know who they are! Now is the time to take control of the future.
Nile’s future is in your hands. You hold the keys. Do not allow Nile’s future to be hijacked by the small group that controls the Temple now. Send them a mes- sage: “My vote counts and I will elect the best Nobles who will advance my Unit, my Club and our Nile into the future.”
I am now officially retired from the Boeing Company. My plan is to spend more time at Nile soaking up as much knowledge as I can. I will continue to serve you, my fel- low Nobles and Brothers, the best I can to improve our Temple and to support the “World’s Greatest Philanthropy,” the Shriners Hospi- tals for Children.
The “Cruizin’ the Grape Wine tasting and Car Show” held on August 29th was a success and a great time by all who attended. We hope to have it again next year. A huge thanks goes out to Liz Day for her time and ef- fort put forward to help make this a success. Congratu- lations to the raffle winners and car show winner.
I hope everyone had a chance to attend the Evergreen State Fair in Monroe from August 22nd through Sep- tember 2nd where the Shurtah unit ran its BBQ Beef booth and the Oriental Band ran the Corn on the Cob booth. Both booths had a successful fair and made money. Thanks to all the volunteers who worked in these booths.
Plans are complete and are in action for our 3rd an- nual Haunted House starting on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, October 11th, 12th, 13th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 25th, 26th, 27th and Friday,November 1st. Check Smile with Nile for start times. The Haunted House committee along with the Director’s Staff, under the guidance of Illustrious Sir Dave Ramich, have done an outstanding job of building for the Haunted House. We know that this will be a big success again this year.
Our next stated meeting is October 9th and will be an open meeting. Zem Zem is at 5 pm, Dinner at 6 pm ($15 pp), Meeting at 7 pm.
Our last parade, on Saturday, October 5th is the “Rail- road Days” parade in Granite Falls. All units please make this parade and show your support for Shriners Hospitals for Children. As always before the parade, for a small price, breakfast will be served by Damascus Masonic Lodge there in Granite Falls. It is always a great breakfast.
Nobles if you are not a member of a club or unit please consider attending one of our Shrine Club meetings located in West Seattle, Renton, Sequim (Olympic Peninsula SC), Bremerton (Kitsap County SC), Oak Harbor (Whidbey Island SC), Mount Ver- non (Skagit Valley SC), Bellingham (Northwest SC), or here at Nile Temple (Eastside SC). For location and meeting times of these, check Smile with Nile or con- tact the office. We look forward to visiting clubs and units and will continue to do so when we can.
See you soon. Until next month, take care.

AT NILE? We are still trying to form a regular motorcycle rid- ing club here at the Nile. A minimum of 10 Nobles are needed in order to form the club. If one was formed we would have monthly meetings, plan money makers, have monthly rides, organize social events with family members and ride in parades without special maneu- vers. Ladies would not be allowed to ride in the parades with us but could participate in all other activities. Any- one interested in starting this club, please contact Dave Brady at [email protected] or 425-481-0159.
In the near future we will plan to meet at the Nile for all who are interested in this club. We may even plan a ride on a Saturday starting with breakfast at the 19th Hole. One idea is to have our monthly Breakfast or Lunch meetings on Saturdays and after the meeting go on rides or activities. Keep checking the SWN for more information.
Dear Nobles:
In a continuing effort to raise funds for our Nile Shrine Center and at the suggestion of Illustrious Sir Richard Sardeson, your Divan is considering naming several of the Temple rooms for individuals who wish to contribute and become the room’s sponsor.
The rooms that would be named after a sponsor, or a person of his choosing, are: The Gold Room The Caravan Room The Main Ball Room The Red Room. The room would be thereafter known by this name and a plaque would be placed over the door.
The necessary donation amount has not yet been determined. A future communiqué will supply this information.
Sponsoring contributions would be placed in the Building and Grounds Fund.
