Our Shrine Ladies

Who are Shriners without the support of their Ladies? To them our contributions do not go unnoticed. They cheer us and give us the energy to keep on going. They kick us in the behind we slow down. They lift us up when we fall. They make sure that we are not lage for our meetings or events. They laugh with us and at us, but we need that. They are our rock. Shriners support the Shrine Hospitals for Children and are successful because we have a support system. We have our Ladies. When they hug us they are also hugging those children that need everyone’s support. Our Many Thanks go out to all of you Shrine Ladies in the World!



On Saturday, 14 January 2017,  our new President for the Belleville Shrine Club was installed for 2017. Congratulations to Noble Jack Hellberg, his Lady Celine, and their new Executive. Attached are some photos of this ceremony and pictures of the new Rameses Shrine Centre with views from the Comfort Inn located beside our Centre.  For those who have never been to the new Centre there certainly is a lot more entertainment around the area with the Woodbine Racetrack/Casino behind the Comfort Inn, a main Shopping Centre on the opposite corner with another shopping area across the street from the Comfort Inn.  Lots of places for the Ladies to visit while the Nobles concentrate seriously on their Shrine duties.  In attendance supporting Noble Jack was 1st Vice President Noble Otto Nungesser, Noble John Neil who conducted the ceremonies, Public Relations Director Noble Stephen Shirk and Noble Rob Wigmore who was performing his duties as the 1st Ceremonial Master with the Divan.  There were some other Ladies present and may have been other Club Members who may have been missed.

Our Nobles and their Ladies enjoyed a great evening meal of lobster, shrimp, clam chowder, beef stew and salmon rounded out by a decadent desert to prepare the Nobles for the Election of Officers for 2017.  Chief Rabban Noble David E. Rawn conducted the elections with Noble Jack Hellberg elected as President, Noble Otto Nungesser elected as 1st Vice President and Noble Gary Crane elected as the 2nd Vice President.  A search is now on the way to find a 3rd Vice President.  Any volunteers????  Also elected were the other Executive positions of Secretary, Treasurer, Directors, Auditors and Trustees.  The best to all in the upcoming year with new challenges ahead.  Nobles and Ladies please check to see if you are in any of the attached photos.
