First and foremost we’d like to extend our congratulations to Alee Temple No.1 for hosting an amazing Shriner’s Gala weekend. We had a great time in the DMV meeting new brothers and sisters as well as reconnecting with old friends. The flow of events was very well orchestrated and the hospitality that was offered was second to none. A special shout out to Daughter’s Fludd & Connolly for their hard work and flawless execution.

We had an especially great evening as the doors for the gala opened and we were shown to our tables. Once settled, the room was vibing out to the sounds of Delta Temple’s own Noble DJ Smoove. Before the sit down dinner arrived each state was circulating around the room meeting and mingling as they recounted the days events. Whether it was trading stories about the creation or discussing the topics of the Daughter’s workshops, all were enjoying the feeling of fellowship. Out in the lobby area the various states were getting together for photos and treating themselves to some of the top shelf drinks of the evening. Shortly after dinner each state lined up to put their best foot forward in the strut contest. Congrats to DC for showing us how it’s done. However, we’ll be taking the trophy in 2015! All in all it was a very classy evening and we had a most memorable time. Thank you again to our hosts and hostesses.


During our time there 6 brothers were created as Nobles for Delta Temple No. 555. A huge congratulations to Noble’s Graham, Felton, Watson, Washington, Matthews, and Parham. They are extremely excited to engage the community as Shriner’s and continue to spread charity to all in need. A heartfelt thank you goes to Deputy Potentate Febus Hunter for his tireless efforts to aid and assist the newly initiated in obtaining further light in their travels. Your guidance continues to be invaluable.
