                  Welcome Ainad Members!
Well, it’s the middle of September. Fall is upon us and that means it’s time to bring a
new Shriner application for our Fall Ceremonial. Let’s come out and support our
potentate and our temple by bringing in that new noble. The cost to bring him in dur-
ing the months of November and December is $184.00 with an embroidered fez and
$294.00 for a double jeweled fez. If he already has a fez, the cost is $114.00. So
please nobles, bring them in.

Everyone had a good time at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds for our Mason/Shrine Day
to celebrate Ainad’s 100 years of being a Shrine temple. Thanks to the top line signers
who brought in our nine new nobles that day. I want to welcome those new nobles to
Ainad Shrine.

Let’s get out there and support our local lodges by bringing in new Masons. The
Masonic experience helps men to become better men, husbands, fathers and citizens.
The fraternal bonds formed in the lodge help build lifelong friendships among men with
similar goals and values. We, as Shrine Masons, operate the largest network of
hospitals for burned and orthopedically impaired children in the world. We have a lot to
offer a new Mason.

As you recruit those new nobles, you can tell them our membership has included U.S.
presidents, military leaders, professional golfers, country music stars, astronauts,
actors and a host of others from all professions and walks of life. So noble, it is so
easy to recruit a new noble. All we have to do is ask—because we do, truly, have
the greatest philanthropy in the world.

If you know of a noble that has dropped out, let’s get him back in. It’s just like bring-
ing in a new noble and it’s easy to do. Just get a restoration form completed, have it
signed by two nobles and send it to Ainad.

Nobles, we still have over 300 nobles that have not paid their dues for 2012. If you are
one of those nobles, please get your dues paid.

If you are having an event and you would like me to come and set up a membership
table, I would like the opportunity. The more we get our name out, the more new
members we can bring into the Masons, Shriners and our other Masonic bodies.

October 18th, at Gibbies on the Green restaurant by the Rend Lake Golf Course, we
will be having a membership meeting. At this meeting, we will be planning out the rest
of the year, and discussing what we will do for membership in 2013. We would like to
have you. If you are interested in serving on the membership team, you and your lady
are invited to attend. We order off the menu and have a meal. The ladies will have
a short meeting as well as the nobles to discuss membership. We have a good time.
So, if you’re interested in helping with our membership efforts, we would love to have
you. Give me a call, a text or send me an email.

Until next time, always think membership. This is a special year to bring in a new noble
in celebration of our 100th year.

Thank you nobles for being Shriners. Take Care; Be Safe and Think Membership.

Start a New Trend for Shriners Hospitals for Children
On August 1, 2012 Brian and Jacqueline Lohman of rural Venedy, Illinois were married
25 years. On August 4, 2012 they celebrated with many family members and friends at
the St. Libory American Legion Hall with cocktails, dinner, and a dance. In lieu of gifts
the couple requested donations be made to Shriners Hospital for Children. A donation
Fez (made by friend of the couple Evonne Albert) was placed on the gift table. Brian
and Jacqueline collected $1,625.00 at their celebration. The couple received many
compliments on the Fez gift box as well as their decision to give their gifts to the
hospital. Brian and Jackie have two children; Drew (fiance Amy) and Kathryn. Both
Brian and Jackie are proud of their donation in honor of their 25 years of marriage.

The Legion of Honor did not have an August Stated Meeting because the GLSA-LOH
Convention in Springfield, IL was in the same week. We had 20 attending including their
Ladies. We have two International Legion of Honor Officers in our Unit. Jim Pulley is the
International LOH 3rd Lt. Commander and Mike Kimbrell who is the LOH International

It was great to see two of our out of state members sharing the convention with us, Larry
Johns and his Lady Ivy who made the trip from Lebanon, Ohio and Richard Bills who
made the trip from Salina, Kansas.

Once again Ainad reclaimed the GLSA-LOH Traveling Trophy for having the most
members in attendance. We have lost the trophy only six times in the past twenty five
years, two of those times we were the host temple and not eligible to win it that year.

At our convention there were six candidates for the One Stone Degree. Jim Pulley is now
the Chief of the One Stones and Ainad LOH 3rd Lt Commander Joe Cano was one of the
candidates and is now a member of the One Stones.

Sadly we report that Shirley Holcman, wife of Past Potentate, and Honorary member
of the LOH Louis Holcman, passed away 26 August. Our prayers are with the Holcman

Don’t forget the Wreath Laying Ceremony in November. If you can possible make it
please do.

            The Ainad Shriners made their way through Trenton Saturday evening,
            September 8 during the Trenton Fest parade. The late Jim Davis, a
            prominent Trenton citizen, was a long-time Shriner and marched with
            the Drum and Bugle Corps for many years. Jim’s sons Gary and Mike
            and grandsons Steve and Jeff have also all become members of the
            Ainad Shriners.

As the Ainad Shriners in southern Illinois celebrate their 100th anniversary this year,
one Trenton family is continuing the tradition by serving the organization for three

Gary Davis and his son Steve officially became Shriner members last December and
Gary’s other son Jeff joined in April. Gary’s father Jim Davis was a lifelong Mason and
decided to join the Shriners after seeing their good work. “He wanted to do more, and
knew of the good work that the Shriners were doing through their hospitals,” said Gary.
“After becoming a Shriner, he made a visit to the hospital and became a lifetime donor
and proponent of their work.”

Along with helping to raise funds and supporting the hospital, Jim joined in another
Shriner tradition--their Drum Corps. He marched in parades throughout southern Illinois
from 1965 to 1996. Gary often went along growing up. “I went to numerous parades
with Dad while he marched with the Drum and Bugle Corps, so I saw his commitment
growing up,” explained Gary. “I never took the time for the study necessary to become
a Mason and Shriner because we were so busy growing our business, but we did want
to continue the tradition Dad started of raising money for the Shriners. We made it a
family project.” Members of the fund raising project raised thousands of dollars of dona-
tions to the Shriners, first in Jim’s memory and then in honor of the Davis Family. And,
for the last 25 years they have raised money through an annual golf tournament that
has netted more than $250,000 for the Shriners.

Gary and his two sons all committed to becoming members in Jim’s memory. Gary’s
brother Mike has been a Shriner for many years. “In memory of his grandfather, Jeff
had asked to hold onto my dad’s Shriners fez after he died. He now proudly wears that
same fez,” said Gary.

The Ainad Shriners started with 105 members in May of 1912. They hosted their first
Ainad Shriners’ circus in 1922, opened Shriners Hospitals for Children-St. Louis in
1924, and began marching in parades with their Drum and Bugle Corps. in June of
1924. Ainad Shriners is now the eighth largest temple in the world, and the largest of
the five temples in Illinois. They have approximately 4,500 members.

Gary says that his family’s experiences with the Shriners have made them appreciate
the gift of health that they, their children, and their grandchildren have been given.

“To see the children being helped through Shriners and their sunny attitude are
inspiring,” he said. “The purpose of the Shriners is to support the Shriners hospitals
and the good work being done to help children. Once someone sees how man young
lives are improved and made more normal because of the dedication of the Shriners
and hospital volunteers, it is hard to not want to find a way to get involved.”

                regular monthly meeting. Betty Lee and the ladies of St. Matthew’s
                Church served a catered dinner and provided the space for our auction.

We were saddened to hear that one of our Belles, Edna Branson had passed away
and a gift in her memory was sent to Shriners Hospitals for Children-St. Louis. Also,
we were saddened by the passing of Shirley Holcman, the wife of P.P. Lou Holcman
and our co-sponsor. A gift to SHC-STL in her memory was also sent.

On a lighter note, Darlene Hill was the Belle of the Day and wore the crown. Janice
Lilly won the 50/50 and got all the money. We sang Happy Birthday to Lil Ewing, Lois
Fiala and Nora Ferguson even though they were not present.

Upcoming dates for the Belles will be the September meeting at Ravanelli’s in
O’Fallon, Illinois, a river boat cruise sponsored by the Daughters of the Nile on October
10th from Grafton to Florence, Illinois and the November 15th meeting of the Belles at
the Scottish Rite Cathedral prior to the Thanksgiving Luncheon. On that day a tour of
the dyslexia center is being arranged by Mary Lou Arras for the Belles.

   Shriners Flying High at Scott Air Show

On September 15 and 16, we had a booth at the Scott Air Show to get our name out.
We represented Ainad Shrine and the Shriner’s Hospitals with our presentation and
had one of the hospital transportation vans on display. The Air Show was a great
success and a great many stopped by to grab a tootsie roll and chat. Of those,
many were interested in learning more about the Shriners and Shriner’s Hospitals
for Children. When we closed up Sunday afternoon, we had 21 prospects signed up.
Numerous patients, former patients, family and friends of patients stopped by. It was
a fun and uplifting time. Picured is Bruce Malear, Jim Pulley and Mike Kimbrell

The animals have been busy, from our spring fundraiser, to parading the streets of the
region, to greeting children at the fairgrounds and even making food for our Poker Run
in August.

With 20 animals in costume on the street, it takes a lot of work to make this happen.
There are so many people to thank for giving their time, from making sure the motor-
home will get there, to getting us there and back safely. There are those who keep the
motorhome clean outside and inside and keep the costumes clean so we animals can
look our best. A special thank you to those co-ordinating our fundraisers to scheduling
our parades and the small necessary details.

We have made 24 appearances, with 6 more to go, so the fun is in the getting there!
The animal’s parade is on the outside, but the circus comes from the heart on the
inside. I’d like to share some comments, questions and conversations if I may.

First off, at some of our parades, it was so hot no one was setting in the sun. Secondly,
at another parade our shoes stuck to the street or was it the asphalt sticking to our
shoes? Now, to leave you with this last story. A lady thanked one of the animals for all
we Shriners do, but asked isn’t it awfully hot in those costumes? The answer: It’s hot,
this is like going to Jenny Craig and it doesn’t cost me a cent!

Hello everyone. I hope everyone has had a wonderful summer. The Patrol met for its
monthly stated meeting on Tuesday, September 4. Many things were discussed with
the main focus being on the room improvements that have been made over the
summer and that still remain to be completed. The room looks GREAT and we would
like for everyone to stop by and take a look. We are still planning on making a patio in
the auditorium where the slide is located with a door that will provide access into and
out of the Patrol room. This is an exciting time for the Patrol. Not only are we
improving our room, but we are gearing up for the Halloween Party. The guys have
another awesome plan for the room this year that is sure to bring the trophy back to
the Patrol for the third year in a row. Get ready ladies and gentlemen; you will not
want to miss this one.

I and the rest of the Patrol would like to take this opportunity to thank Bettye Smith,
Patrol member Larry Wofford and Past Patrol President Tony Starzyk for recently
delivering on behalf of the Patrol another 200 quilts to the kids at Shriners Hospitals for
Children-St. Louis. As most of you know by now, Bettye, with Larry’s help, has been
making quilts for the kids for many years now and does it all out of the kindness of her
heart. While the Patrol does subsidize a small portion of the cost, Bettye pays for the
majority of the materials and all of her time herself. Bettye does not seek recognition
for this, but she sure does deserve it. We should all be grateful to Bettye for her hard
work and dedication. The number of quilts she has made for our kids totals in the
thousands. Thank you Bettye for all that you do. We sure do appreciate you and love
you for all of your heard work and dedication! I have included two pictures of the event
with this article.

 Charlie Harrison is still fighting his battle with cancer and we all wish him the best. We
are all pulling for you Choo Choo. Keep up the good fight.

Remember that we meet the first and third Tuesdays of each month down at Ainad.
John Chapline is still making awesome food for our meeting on the first Tuesday of
every month and we would love to share it will all of our members and as many Divan
members that can make it.

                            By Jeanie Hill
Dear Nobles and Ladies

Hello everyone , looks like the Summer heat is gone and now my favorite time of year
is here. This year is flying by, we can breathe a little easier, but we still have some big
events coming up hope You All will join in the fun and Fellowship that come along with
these events. This month’s couple are really super members always there when we
need them , and work very hard for our Temple. Please let me introduce to you Jim
and Berta Onstott
                        Jim Onstott was born January 9, 1942 in Hot Springs,
                        Arkansas. His family moved to Fairfield, Illinois when he was in
                        the 7th grade. While in Hot Springs, he was in the same
                        elementary grade school as President William Clinton. Jim
                        graduated from Fairfield Community High School in 1960. He
                        was involved in sports: football, basketball, and his favorite,
                        baseball. He was offered a contract with a minor league, he
                        turned the offer down….they didn’t quite offer the $$ that the big
     Jim & Berta        leagues do today!
Jim has been a salesman for most of his career. He was with a wholesale lumber
company for over 20 years. Later he helped a local hardware company set up a
lumber company of their own.

Jim is an avid deer hunter. He hunts in southern Illinois and in Indiana with his son,
Tim. He also enjoys traveling and for over 30 years, he and his wife Berta had a place
on Lake Barkley and a houseboat on the Lake.

Jim and Berta have two daughters, Daphne and Erin and one son, Tim. They have
seven grandchildren and three step grandchildren. The oldest grandson, TJ, is a fresh-
man on the Lindenwood University, Belleville, football team. He will be playing home
and travel team, therefore, Jim and Berta will be traveling often this Fall.

Jim became a Shriner in 2005. His mother- in- law encouraged him for many years
to become a Mason and a Shriner. He is Recruitment Chairman of the Membership
Committee, a Vice Charirman of the Ainad Partner Sponsors Program, and a
Roadrunner. Jim was appointed as an Ambassador under Potentate Larry Carril.
Jim is a member of the Wayne County Shrine Club, an associate of the Franklin
County Shrine Club and the Williamson County Shrine Club. He and Berta are also
new members of the Hillbillies.

He enjoys all of the activities of the Ainad Shriners and the brotherhood of his fellow
Shriners. The friendships he and Berta have made within Ainad are overwhelming!
Jim’s most enjoyable experiences are those made by being a Roadrunner. This is a
deed that is very close to his heart. He feels that it is a gift to be able to, have hands
on, helping the children. It has been a great honor of meeting many great people
along the way.

The Dania Shrine Club met at the O’Fallon K of C on September 4. It was the annual
steak fry and Ladies night. The regular order of business was suspended and the
evening started with the pledge to the flag and invocation by Carl Hall. A moment of
silence was observed in the memory of Shirley Holcman, wife of Past Potentate Lou
Holcman, a long time Dania member.

A special thank you went to Curt Graul, Red Lemke and Frank Martinez for preparing
the pork steaks and brats. The steaks combined with the lovely dishes brought by the
ladies contributed to a wonderful meal.

Paper Crusade Chairman Doug Hardy reviewed the dates which will be in Mascoutah
on September 7 and 8 and O’Fallon on October 12th. Help is needed at both locations.

President Scott Miller mentioned that the annual Christmas and Installation party will
be on December 22, at the Fairview Elks. The Belleville Shrine Club and Troy Scott
Shrine Club have been informed.

Past Potentates that were present. Rick also discussed future Shrine dates and
brought every one up to date on the outstate Anniversary ceremonial that was in Du
Quoin on Sept. 2.

Carl Hall reported on the new referral procedure for children needing treatment at the
Shriners Hospitals for Children. Everyone will be getting a business card with an 800

Greetings, Happy Fall from El Kazam.
The cool temperatures and colorful foliage of autumn are certainly welcome after a scorching
summer. If all elements come together, we hope to see beautiful fall colors in our landscape and
it will be time to enjoy a nice ride around El Kazam Country. Some of the prettiest hills and rivers in
the midwest.

El Kazam is busy with our Paper Crusade and we are doing well again this year. Our next
collection will be in Jerseyville on October 12th and 13th at Wal-Mart and Sinclairs. We still
have openings for you to help if you have not already volunteered. Call Ron Thomason at
314-378-5544 and I am sure we will find a time that will fit your busy schedule.

The 17th Annual Ainad Halloween Party will be on Saturday, October 27th. Put the costumes
on your kids or grandkids and take them down for a fun day of trick or treating. Looks like we are
going to have a good group from El Kazam attend the 100 Year Gala at Four Points Sheraton in
Fairview Heights on November 2nd. So if you would like to join us, contact the Ainad Office and
make your reservations. It should be a funfilled evening. Also, remember our Fall Ceremonial on
November 3rd at Ainad. Let’s see if we can’t have at least one candidate from our area. Read your
Bulletin for all important details.

Our September meeting was at Fieldon Lodge. We enjoyed a nice evening of great food and
fellowship. We also had the pleasure of having as our guests John Blondell and Carl Hall. We
always enjoy having visitors joining us for dinner and meeting.

Our October meeting will be on Friday, October 12th at Fieldon Lodge. We will have a potluck
dinner between 6:00 and 6:30. At this writing not sure what our main entree will be, but please
bring a side dish or dessert of your liking.

Please keep our servicemen and women in your thoughts and prayers along with Julius Gilbert,
Bert and Alma Schaaf, Alberta Gallay, Dwight and Berty Miller, Bob Sherwin and Paul Brown.

               Happy Autumn Greetings! As we enter the month of October, the trees
               are beautiful with fall colored leaves and the temperature continues to fall.
               Soon, many ghosts and goblins will visit us at our doorsteps. I hope that
               this newsletter finds you and your family doing well.

We held our second fish fry of the year on September 7th and 8th at the Granite City
Schnuck’s parking lot. Along with the great support of workers, we were equally blessed
with many hungry customers. President Morris would like to extend his appreciation
and thanks to those members (to numerous to mention) for their dedicated work, which
made our fish fry a success.

Our meeting was held at the Sharon’s Restaurant on August 18 with 17 members and
one guest, Louis Fogelman, present.

Louis Fogelman gave a report on the final arrangements for the 60th Annual Salem-
Centralia Shrine Football Game to be held in Centralia this year.

Dan Robinson has been looking into purchasing a tent but we decided to wait. A vote
was taken on buying a new gas cooker. Dan Robinson went to Sam’s and purchased it.
Darrell, Dan & Buck put it together. (Buck watched).

We have three Nobles with August birthdays: Howard Bringwald, Ed Rankin and
Buck Oulrey.

Members of Salem Shrine Club who live in Kinmundy, Alma, Salem & Patoka are put-
ting together a Float for the Kinmundy parade.

Our thoughts and prayers are with our members and their familys who are ill.

I realize this is a little late, but I would like to thank all Nobles and their Ladies who
helped in any way with the Shrine Circus held in Salem this year.
Your help is what makes the Circus a success.

Rain, rain, beautiful rain. We finally got some relief from the draught and wasn’t it
grand. You could just hear the grass and plants sucking it in with joy and relief. Of
course, the break in the terrible heat was welcomed, as well. If this is what global
warming is about, we better find the correct remedy in a hurry. Makes you wonder just
what may we expect this winter. Those of us with coal company stock, do we want a
severe winter or a nice mild one, like last year? We’ll just have to wait and take what
ever the elements give us.

We were pleased to hear the report that our friend Earl Gum is again at home and is
able to walk with a walker. He is gaining his strength and hopefully we will see him at
a unit meeting, soon. It was reported that Chuck Weiss took a nasty fall and required
several stitches to his ear. Joe Hassler has been having some medical problems but
with the aid of his doctors he is feeling better and hopefully he will return to his old self.
Our friend, Dan Morrison, is having a problem with COPD and all the accompanying
concerns that come with the ailment. Dan is in good spirits and his lovely wife, Myra,
tells me he wants to be more active in unit affairs when he is feeling better.

One of our new members, Dana Brockman, who with his lovely wife, Linda, have
graciously volunteered to organize a Halloween party for the patients at SHC-STL.
Of course, they invite and welcome any help they might get from other unit members.
This is a fine gesture;re on their part and shows what a good members of the Hospital
Unit they will be.

We want to welcome another new member to our unit. Paul Ziessler of Salem, was
accepted as a probationary member at our August meeting. Paul comes highly
recommended and we know he will be a good working member of our unit.

The Hospital Unit is currently open to new members. If a noble is in good standing
with Ainad and interested in working for our hospital and the children who need our
services, contact any Hospital Unit member or the Ainad Temple Administrator and
we will be glad to answer any questions you might have about our unit.

Centralia Picks Up Where It Left Off
The ability of the Centralia Orphans to make big plays served as a big reason why last
season was such a success.

On Friday night, the Orphans picked up right where last year’s 8-2 squad left off, as
Centralia scored five touchdowns on plays with double-digit yardage in recording a
40-14 win over rival Salem in the 60th annual Shrine Game at Evers Field.
