I had the great time visitng with Lady Sheila Smith yesterday at her home in Trenton. Sheila was so proud of her husband Fred for all of his accomplishments and in particular his dedication to the Shrine Children when he was Chairman of the many Shrine Circuses in Belleville from 1987 to 2000. In the later years of the Circus from 2001 to 2012 the 1st Vice Presidents of the Club would be in charge of the Circus however they still had Noble Fred putting a committee together to sell tickets, set up for the Circus, and to enter the ring to make the announcements on behalf of the Belleville and District Shrine Club and the Rameses Shrine Circus. Noble Fred was the true coordinator for these events. The 1st Vice Presidents may have taken the accolades for this event however Noble Fred was the true spokesman for the Club and our Nobility. He needs to be remembered. Thank you Sheila for sharing these memories.
