Al Kader Shriners End of Summer social cruise - September 23rd 2018


Community Pints - Portland

by Terry Griffith, High Priest and Prophet

Deschutes Brewery at their Portland location was the setting for their Community Pints Program in July. Deschutes Brewery selects a non-profit each month and on every Tuesday of that month, they will donate $1 for each pint of beer sold. The Shriners Run For A Child was selected for July this year at their Portland location.

I just wanted to extended a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who participated and especially I.S. Warren Gray and 1st Ceremonial Master Curtis Hanson. Both of whom attended the majority of the Tuesdays in July. I also want to that all the new Nobles who joined us and enjoyed some good beer and great fellowship.

This was a great opportunity to meet Nobles and have fun while helping children, with all the net proceeds going to the Shriners Run For A Child and then onto the Hospital to help with the Motion Analysis Clinic and the Nutrition Program. Although I do not have the amount for the five Tuesdays it is anticipated to be a large increase over last year.

Again, thank you for your support and for helping raise funds for our Hospital.


Grand Bethel

by Mark Phillips, Oriental Guide

When I attended Oriental Guide School a few months ago, Imperial Sir Bill Bailey reminded me that Shriners International is a men’s organization but he made sure that I understood we exist only in the context of our ladies, children, and grandchildren. Hence, Shriners are a part of the larger Masonic Family.

A good example of the Masonic Family in action is when we support our youth groups. On June 28, Lady Deanna and I attended the Opening of Oregon Job’s Daughters’ Grand Session in North Bend, Oregon. It was a formal event beginning with a buffet banquet. A sizable number of Daughters were in attendance from around Oregon, along with their adult leaders and several of the Nobility from Al Kader and Hillah Shrine Centers. Prominent among the Nobility was Noble Vern Harris as Associate Grand Guardian.

In my remarks made on behalf of our Potentate, IS Art Hermanson, I emphasized that we need the Daughters as part of the Masonic Family because of their creativity, compassion, sense of what is beautiful, and commitment to what is important in life. In closing my remarks, I presented an Al Kader blanket to Mrs. Laurie Armstrong, the Grand Guardian, as a tangible token of our commitment to their worthwhile program.

About Shriners

The Ancient Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine was founded in 1872 by a group of 13 men belonging to the Masonic Order. It was originally established to provide fun and fellowship for its members.

On January 3, 1888, Imperial Potentate Sam Briggs granted the dispensation for Al Kader Shrine. On February 15, 1888, members of Islam Shrine conferred the Shrine degrees in Portland, Oregon. There were fourteen original members.

Al Kader Shriners was the first Shrine Center to be established in the Pacific Northwest. Originally located in the City of Portland, our home is now in Wilsonville.

Al Kader History Slide Show

Irving W. Pratt was elected the first Illustrious Potentate on February 15, 1888. Al Kader was the 46th charter and the first in the Pacific Northwest. Pratt’s great grandson, Noble Ard Pratt – Potentate in 2009, is today an active Al Kader Shriner.

Now, there are approximately 300,000 Shriners. They gather in 196 Shrine Centers throughout the United States, Canada, Germany, Mexico, the Philippines, Puerto Rico and the Republic of Panama. In 2010, in order to reflect the growth of the Shrine outside North America, we became Shriners International.

Shriners Hospital - Portland

The Imperial Council met in Portland, Oregon, in 1920. Al Kader Shriners and their delegation helped to write that indelible page in the Book of Humanity, and thus began the Shriners Hospitals for Children, for it was here that the movement to define our philanthropy began.

There are now 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children providing care for orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate.

Shriners Hospital Portland

These hospitals have helped more than one million children — regardless of a families' ability to pay. --since the first Shriners Hospital for Children opened in Shreveport, LA in 1922.

We are very fortunate to have one of the Shriners hospitals located in Portland. In 1924, the original Shriners Hospital opened in Portland at NE 82nd Ave.and Sandy Boulevard.
