2016 Travel Raffle
Ron Gamble, Chief Rabban
The Ultimate Vacation Raffle ticket sales is doing great. I want
to thank so many Nobles and Ladies that have really been selling
tickets. Now that the nice sunny weather is with us, it is time to
get out to public events and present ourselves as Shriners that
are having fun and raising money at the same time.
We are planning events such as Wilsonville Thursday Farmers
Market that IS Bob Walliker is working on, Canby First Friday’s
and these community events from May through September
in many of our Cities. Fred and Reba Harden are working on
getting us into the Molalla Buckaroo Rodeo over the July 4th
weekend and the Steam-up in Brooks the end of July. The Desert
Patrol will sell tickets at the Mustang Ranglers event in June.
Mel and Velna DeHut have said they will go to the Pendleton
Round-up in September to work with Outer Guard Richard Crist
and the Pendleton Shrine Club to sell tickets.
Now that we are in the Parade session, everyone should have
some tickets with them and sell. Walking through the parade
line before the parade and on the streets while we have crowds of
people is an easy way to sell tickets.
If anyone has ideas of opportunities for us to set up our tent,
banner and material or if you would like to be part of the
scheduled events, please call me at 503 688-3373. This is not only
a great effort to raise money for Al Kader’s budget for next year,
exposing Shriners in the community and great fellowship with
Nobles and Ladies of our great Shrine Family.
