To the Nobility of EI Hasa Shriners
To have been elected to serve our Nobility as the Potentate for EI Hasa Shrine Temple for the ensuing year of 2022 is humbling in so many ways. Two that stand out to me are first, the fact that 2022 will be both the 150th Anniversary of our Shriner Fraternity and the 100th Anniversary of our Shriner’s Children’s Hospital System. What began as an idea for a philanthropic arm of the Masonic Order, eventually led to the first chapter being Chartered in 1872. There are now more than 195 chapters in countries around the world.
Then, in 1922, construction began in Shreveport, LA on the First (1st) Shriners Hospital for Children. To address the needs of the overwhelming number of patients during construction, the first
physician saw patients at a small office in town.
Today, Shriners Hospitals for Children has served 1.4 million children.
The second way is viewed from the eyes of a parent of a child who has been treated at Shriner’s Children’s Hospital. Our son Nicholas has been a patient at Lexington Shriner’s Hospital for the last eight years. A heartfelt thank you goes out to every Noble with our wonderful fraternity, their ladies, and our community partners who continually support us and our Shriner’s Children’s Hospital.

El Hasa Shrine Temple is covered under a Fleet insurance policy. Therefore, our parade stickers are the golden ticket. The parade sticker and the form are all that is required to participate as a Shriner or Hillbilly in the Hillbilly Days Parade for 2022. There will be a tent set up in our staging area with the forms to fill out and submit. All is well. Come out and let's show the Pikeville community how we celebrate 150 years of Our Shriners Organization!
