Nobles and Ladies All:
As I plan for 2020, I am excited about “Looking to the Future” and the opportunities it brings to our Temple. Opportunities
to work to better engage our membership as well as to strive to attract new members so that we can continue to be good
Shriners and support Shriners Hospitals for Children throughout 2020 and beyond. Our Temple is the 7th oldest, and the
accomplishments have been nothing less than amazing – all because of you!
While “Looking to the Future” is important, I also believe that “Honoring the Past” is very valuable. As a second-generation
Potentate, I am grateful for all those Potentates that have served before me, for their efforts are what provides me the
privilege to serve you today. Learning from the successes and failures of the past, will help guide me on this journey as
your Potentate in 2020. The decisions of the past have positioned our Temple where we are today and Lady Judy and I sincerely
thank them and all of the members – Past, Present and Future for their efforts and support.
Yours in Faith,
Jerry A. Ulm
2020 Syrian Shrine Potentate
