Box Ma il To: P.O Ma Potentate’s Message Greetings to our Shrine family, Lady Jeanie and I seem to say where is this time seemed to go. GLSA business session we must get prepared to support Steve Kibler PP. He will be president in 2014. Denver and Earl did a wonderful job with the Masonic Shrine day at DuQouin. We even had nine new shriners join Ainad that day. Thanks guys. Please remember that our Gala Party is Friday, November 2nd and Fall Ceremonial is Saturday, November 3rd. PP Tom Schrag will be the class Honoree. We will need to make membership the key to this event. Let’s get out there and find those candidates new Shriners our are life blood. The challenge is Bil l D. Hill to replace yourself. Paper crusade is well under way. Thanks to all who help. Let’s make this the best we can make it. Our Shrine hospitals depend on us to do this fund raiser and it also puts information about the hospitals in the hands of so many people. Please contact the office with your holiday schedules so we can send your divan to install and celebrate the holidays with you all. With a heavy heart Lady Jeanie and I wish to send our deepest sympathy to the Holcman Family. Shirley was such a special friend what a great 1st lady. Lou our hearts and prays go out to you and all your family Shirley made our lifes better and set standards we can only hope to attain. Let’s dig in and make each up coming event one to remember. Thanks to each of you for all the hard work you do. Membership, Membership, Membership. Yours in faith and hope, Bill Hill Keep Looking for those New Candidates! Fall Celemonial November 3rd 1 Ainad Shriners . . . 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.

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. 2012 1987 Help Our Membership Grow shrinersinternational.org Check out this brand new site! beashrinernow.com Learn what Shriners do. shrinersvillage.com A private Web Community for Shriners.

Legion of Honor John Costello 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 Quartermaster. 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 family. Don’t forget the Wreath Laying Ceremony in November. If you can possible make it please do.

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 generations. 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.” 7 Ainad Shriners . . . Thank You, For A Job Well Done! Ainad would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the following men who donated time in the recent replacement of a water pipe section in the temple floor. Many hours were needed in this huge cost savings to Ainad. Todd Halt, Lance Croissant, Charles Thomas, Jim Carroll, Dave Casson Jr, Doyle Doc Clubb, Terry Conard, Joey Gildehaus, Paul Sahey, John Lowe, Nelson Matter. Hey Pilgrim! "Calling all horse lovers and those who would like to parade!" Do you own a Palomino, Chincoteague, Assateague, Standardbred? If you are interested parading with your horse please contact me, Eric Oliphant at 618-960-4561 or my email email@example.com. Tell me what you horse's name as well as where you live. If you own a draft horse and coach that would be great as well. A group of us Nobles are looking to create a mounted patrol to parade in surrounding parades and giving to kids, both young and old, a look at these beautiful animals. I look forward hearing from everyone.

Ainad Belles Dorothy Kinney The Belles have been fundraising for the Ainad Shriners in earnest lately. First the Sunday dinner fundraiser held at the Pontoon Beach Masonic Lodge in Granite City and the very next day a silent auction at their 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.

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 MaCliBo Circus Unit George Ellis 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! 12 Having Fun & Helping Kids Arab Parol Michael Hayes 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. 13 Ainad Shriners . . .

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! Onstott 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. 17 Ainad Shriners . . . A Great Photo Opportunity!

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.

Hospital Unit Don Kopp 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. 26 Having Fun & Helping Kids Ainad 2012 Calendar Fundraiser August Cash Winners $25.00 Winners 1,244 Donald Travelstead Cal # Name 1,282 Cheri Johnson 592 Paul Suess 367 Jon Racklin 1,123 Mike Lowry 405 Earl Whitson 81 Ed Hurley 71 Richard Clayton 510 Amber Turley 882 Kenny Boyer 318 Kieth Reid 1,303 Mark Reinebach 348 Victor Klingler 81 Ed Hurley 256 Carolyn Monroe 135 Brian Isringhausen 115 Julie Alexander 750 Jefferson County Shrine Club 558 Rick Sorocko 1,085 Jasper County Shrine Club 690 Charles Jerden 1,226 Leo Fever 531 Darwin Reding 361 Justin Schwartz $50.00 Winners 1,064 Jack Bange 1,202 Megan Maxwell 77 Roy Mueller 1,156 G Humphries 1,307 Tomas Wade 533 Kenny Schuepbach 517 Ron Whiteside 198 Helen Welch 1,048 Ron Gilomen 673 Sandra Dahl 114 Julie Alexander 214 Perry Co.
