AAhames at Lakeport
The AAHMES Shriners Club had its annual inauguration on March 30 at Hartley Lodge Masonic Hall in Lakeport.
With great honor, the gavel has changed hands from former President J.J. Jackson to newly elected President Jim Swatts in the presence of Honorable Potentate Jay Williams, its members and guests.
Other members were also honored and their official positions are: Harvey Fisher, vice president; Skip Wilson, secretary; Bill Storey, treasurer; Freeman Hass, ambassador-at-large; and Randy Hass, club ambassador.
It has been a great honor to be visited by the Potentate and to listen to his inspiring speech. It was an event to be well remembered. The group thanks the Honorable Potentate for visiting.
The Lake County AAHMES Shriners Club is a organization that provides free medical treatment at the Shriners Hospital to children born with physical impairment or injured from severe burns.
The Shriners provide free transportation for the children and parents and housing, when needed, through fund raising and yard sales.
To those that shall forever live in the memory of parents, children they have served. These are the warriors of love; these are the Lake County “AAHMES” Shriners Club.
They have left a written historical legacy behind them forever to be remembered for their effort, love and care given to children which otherwise would have never lived a normal life. Hats off to these wonderful human beings.
