Clatsop County Shriners have an ambitious agenda for 2017 with emphasis on community relations.

Plans are already in place for Shrine Club participation in public events throughout Clatsop County in 2017, including hosting a large turnout of Al Kader Units for the Astoria Regatta in August 2017.

President Victor Kee is taking the lead in involving Clatsop County Masonic Lodges and Masons in all our community outreach events.

Vice President Jack Bradbury is working on upgrading the parade float and lining up local parades the float will be entering.

Community Relations Chairman Lane Maclean said, “We want everyone in Clatsop and surrounding counties to know who we are and what we do.”

Secretary Ron Collman said, “We are going to make our 2017 East-West All-Star Banquet the biggest and best ever.”

As summer winds down we focus on our regular meeting schedule, and events for the balance of the Shrine year.

The CCSC participated in the traditional Columbia River Shrine football game at the Memorial Stadium in Longview on Friday, September 16th. We handed out programs wearing our iconic fezzes, and were part of the pre-game National Anthem ceremony. It was an excellent opportunity to showcase Shrinedom to the community.

Our club attended the Malheur Cave degree conferral in Burns, where we focused on ritual work. We enjoyed the social gathering with the Grand Lodge officers in August with seven members. They displayed the Shrine building sign at their campsite that boldly noted our presence. President Noble Casey headed an expedition of the cave waters in a rubber raft and didn’t locate Bigfoot. The water was very cold and the area very dark. Portable generators in the general meeting area, was the only lighting in the cave.

Noble Chief Rabban and our Potentate’s representative Ron Gamble reminds us that the ultimate vacation raffle will be awarded on Chief Rabban night, November 18th, at the Wilsonville Shrine Center. There is still plenty of time to sell tickets for this exciting fundraising project. Remember each ticket pays the club or unit one dollar for selling the ticket as a reward for their effort. An easy way to raise funds for their treasury.

Our participation in the St. Helens Children’s Fair during the Halloween weekend is always a crowd pleaser. Noble Henry Heimuller and President Noble Casey will control the hay wagon around the commons building to the delight of the children. Our presence has always been acknowledged and appreciated by the community.

Our ‘work’ parties, replacing the lighting in the lower level is moving forward and the project is into the more final phases. Completion should be later in the fall. It is an ambitious effort for novice electrical workers for sure. The complete project will enhance the rentability of the building for community events.

The first Saturday breakfasts are continuing with success, with several ‘locals’ appreciating our presentations monthly. The receipts have been rewarding and will continue.

We hope to see visitors at our next regular meeting on October 27th at 6:30 PM for a light buffet and business meeting to follow. Our officer elections will be scheduled, and a review of our end of the Shrine year activities will be discussed.


Long Beach Elementary School Math Day

In the spring of 2016 , Long Beach, Washington Elementary School Teacher Mrs. Pat Knapp reached out across the Columbia River for help in sponsoring her innovative ‘Math Day’ through which students could find friends, relatives or whomever to sponsor them in a ‘Math Day Marathon’ at the local Elementary School. While the funds raised by the students went to a charity for children, the students were rewarded with trophies and certificates for their math skills.

Clatsop County Shrine Club President Victor Kee reached back across the river and pledged Clatsop County Shrine Club’s support, provided the Portland Shriners Hospital would be designated as the charity.

After many hours of planning and organizing, Math Day 2016 became a reality and $3,000 was raised. Then came word that a special kind of recliner costing $3,500 was desperately needed for some patients at the Portland Shriners Hospital. But, the Math Day Marathon had only raised $3,000. So, at the Clatsop County Shrine Club stated meeting on May 20th, Noble Lowell ‘Bob’ Cook moved that, “The club expend $500 to add to the math day funds to provide for the immediate purchase of a recliner.” The motion carried. At the Portland Shrine Hospital August Board Meeting, President Victor Kee, Nobles Bob Cook and Ron Collman presented a check in the amount of $3,500 to the Portland Shriners Hospital as a prime example of a successful community outreach, even to a community across a river and in another state, yet an outreach for a noble cause.

Clatsop County Shrine Club reached out across the Columbia River to Long Beach Washington to sponsor elementary school teacher Pat Knapp’s ‘Math Day 2016’ a fundraiser for Shriners Hospitals.

This year, Math Day raised $3,000 for Shriners Hospitals. What’s more, with extensive local press coverage and local publicity, the communities in southwest Washington and Northwest Oregon were reminded of the significance of Shriners Hospitals, “The World’s Greatest Philanthropy.”

Clatsop County Shrine Club President Vic Kee announced that plans are already being made with Mrs. Knapp for the 2017 Long Beach Elementary Math Day.

ASTORIA TAIL BLAZERS BASKETBALL

Five teams competed for bragging rights in the second annual Clatsop County Shrine Club ‘Astoria Donkey Basketball Game’ at the Astoria Armory on Saturday, April 4th. Teams were: Tongue Point Job Corps, United States Coast Guard Air Station Astoria, Medix Ambulance Service; Shanghai Roller Dolls and Warrenton Fire and Rescue.

A large crowd cheered on their favorite teams and excitement filled the air as this fast moving, low scoring, unique, basketball game provided a full afternoon of entertainment.

Every team went away with bragging rights while the clear winners were the kids who had the thrill of petting donkeys before the game and between games. And, the thrill was equally enjoyed by the donkeys petted by the kids.
