Circus harnesses nostalgia to help adapt to changing times

The circus is all about excitement and flash — bands blare, sequins shimmer, humans and animals perform acrobatic feats.
Behind the scenes, things are considerably more businesslike, although clowns still clown around.
“We started preparing nine months ago,” said Shrine past potentate Lucky Seibert. The circus in Billings has seen changes as it adapts to entertainment in a new century.
“This is how things traveled around for entertainment” when the Shriners adopted the circus in the early 1900s, Seibert said. “There was no TV, a little bit of radio.”
Today, there are a lot of other entertainment options to compete with. One way the circus works to stay relevant is by tapping into its roots.
“They’re nostalgia,” Seibert said of the acts. “There’s only this one opportunity each year to see a live elephant or to see a live tiger. We give them a chance to have that memory.”
Other tweaks are more practical. Over the years, the Billings circus has changed schedules, acts and venues — it’s in its 18th year at the Shine Auditorium.
“Each year we try to add something new,” Seibert said. One of this year’s new attractions was a high-wire motorcycle act.
By making scheduling and marketing adjustments, the group boosted attendance for its first show from 300 last year to 1,000 this year. They expect a total of 15,000 people will see 10 shows.
During the first years in the auditorium, the group aimed to fill it to its 2,400-seat capacity.
“It was so packed they wouldn’t even get up to go buy a snow cone,” Seibert said. Now, the group shoots for about 1,400 people per show.
The circus serves as the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Shriners, but it doesn’t support Shriners Hospitals for Children — it helps keep the lights on in the auditorium and provides a backbone for other fundraising efforts.
Seibert knows how important the hospitals are. His 21-year-old daughter, Whittney, was born prematurely and has cerebal palsy. She was treated there.
“I got to see what the hospitals did,” he said. It was more than enough to get him involved.
But the Shriners have been grappling with declining membership across the nation as more and more outlets for charitable work pop up.
“We’d love to see more people get involved and help us out,” Seibert said.
Plenty of people plucked cotton candy as they watched elephants prance, tigers leap and acrobats launch themselves through the air Wednesday night.
Elephants are still the biggest attraction, Seibert said, but their days in circuses are numbered. The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus has announced they’ll phase out the animals, and Seibert said Shriners have discussed plans regarding the future of elephants in their show.
The animals can no longer be imported, and breeding pairs are getting too old, he said. A general trend in circuses now emphasizes “more artistry through humans than animals.”
Many of the acrobats would probably agree — it’s all about finding a balance.

Western Shrine Association (WSA).April22-26


$99.00 WSA Registration
The registration fees belong to the Western Shrine Association (WSA).  The registration fee covers the Noble and his Lady (or significant other) for the convention.  All WSA scheduled events require a WSA registration badge to participate.  The WSA badge is marked for the events that you paid for during registration and the badge is your access credential to those WSA events.
WSA registered participants receive:
Access to WSA activities designed to show Shriners young and old what being a Shriner is all about. They call the Shrine the playground of Masonry, think of WSA convention as your personal Big Playground in Las Vegas.  If you don’t have fun it is your own fault.
Areas are set aside for WSA participants to use for their relaxation and a place to make new and renew friendships with Shriners and their ladies from across WSA. More detail will be provided to you at WSA registration.
Access to a 900 SF suite on the upper floor of the hotel. This suite will be the WSA Hospitality Room. Registered WSA attendees have access to free beverages and snacks during the convention.  This is just another place to relax and make new and renew friendships. The hours are listed in the schedule of events. Once again, if you don’t visit you will be missing a fun place to mix with fellow Shriners and their ladies.
For those registered at the hotel and registered for WSA, there are reduced fees throughout The Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, to include special discounts to On-property Shows and other featured activities. Check your hotel registration packet for details.  These coupons print out automatically at the front desk when you check-in.
Business Meeting. All Temples in good standing with WSA are “automatically” a member, this includes all the Nobility of that temple (there are no dues cards for this). The voting reps of WSA are: Current Potentate, Chief Rabban, Assistant Rabban, High Priest & Prophet, Oriental Guide, Recorder, Treasurer, the Immediate (Junior) Past Potentate of your Temple, WSA Officers, and any Past WSA Presidents. All Nobles are welcome to attend the business meeting to understand what is going on with WSA and interface and learn from the Imperial Presentation that have an impact on our fraternity.
For the Ceremonial, candidates will need to register, but since the ceremonial is an activity open to the public, the nobles may attend as long as they will not be participating any activity that requires them to register to participate in the event. The Mandarin degree does require the Noble to register to participate.
Final Thoughts: WSA has considerable costs associated with putting on the annual WSA convention.  Through your registered participation, you help WSA cover the costs for services that are necessary to provide an organized and rewarding experience. In addition, WSA requested from the hotel access to meetings rooms for Registration, Ceremonial, WSA business meeting, Unit Competition, a large hall for our Vendor Boutique, and areas for bands and other groups to perform on the property. In exchange, WSA has guaranteed a number of hotel room nights.  Your registration to stay in the hotel helps control the actual costs of the WSA convention to be charged to the WSA association.
 $1.00 Candidate Registration
We understand Candidates for the ceremonial have a larger expense to furnish and might not be at the convention for the entire duration. This is a reduced rate FOR CANDIDATES (and their Ladies or significant others) ONLY.

Want to join the Guerneville Masons? Just ask

March 20, 2015, 4:03PM 

The Mount Jackson Lodge #295, where the order comes together at 6:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month, has reposed quietly on Third and Church Streets in Guerneville since local Masons built it 1925. The public is welcome to join the members on meeting days for lunch and a brief program at 11:30 a.m. but, says local master Jeff Schloo, “We are not allowed to ask anyone to join the group. They have to ask us.”
A recent open house seemed like a good way to accomplish that goal, featuring informative talks followed by burgers, hot dogs, beans, salad and beverages accompanied by recorded jazz as a way to introduce the Lodge to the community.
Schloo, 58, pointed to a sticker on the Lodge’s Third Street window: “If you want 2B 1 of us ask.”
“I can’t say, ‘Hey I think you would make a good Mason,’ ” he said. “You have to knock on the door of a Masonic Temple and ask. We want you to join of your own will and accord.”
The Mount Jackson Lodge gathering featured informative talks followed by burgers, hot dogs, beans, salad and beverages accompanied by recorded jazz.
The Russian River Historical Society and sheriff’s station were represented, as well as the curious and the homeless. No one who wanted to meet a few Masons — and perhaps have a bit of lunch — was denied. Current California Grand Master of Masons Russell E. Charvonia also was in attendance.
The Mount Jackson Lodge, #295, was chartered on September 17, 1889, now one of 356 Masonic lodges in the United States. Most have between 35 and 40 members, Schloo said. The Mount Jackson Lodge has 57 who spend much of their meting time training for more advanced degrees in the Masonic hierarchy.
“Freemasonry is for people who wish to improve themselves spiritually, mentally and physically, as a parent and a friend, as a member of their community and ultimately as a servant of God,” Schloo explained.
Aside from petitioning this ancient order for membership, interested people must:
Be men of lawful age (18 years old). (For the rest of the story go to http://www.pressdemocrat.com/news/3677784-181/want-to-join-the-guerneville

Volunteers train to ‘help kiddos’ through burn seminar

Paige Rock hasn’t needed to use the burn trauma training she learned through the El Riad Shrine, at least not directly.
But the registered nurse and mother of four appreciates knowing she is prepared if something happens, and she also has used her training to make new parents aware of when and how burns can occur.
“I do talk about some of the prevention with my patients as they’re going home and taking a new baby home,” Rock said. “I suggest they check water heaters to make sure they’re not set too high or to test the bathwater to make sure it’s not too hot.”
Rock participated in a pediatric burn trauma seminar offered two years ago through the local El Riad Shrine and Shriners Hospital for Children in Cincinnati.
It has been offered three times in Sioux Falls over the past six years, said Shriner Roger Risty, and in Yankton it has been available for more than 10 years, training hundreds of people. It will be offered next week in Brookings and Yankton and twice in Sioux Falls.
“The clinic is labeled as a pediatric burn and trauma seminar, but it’s actually for anybody who would be the initial responder for anybody in a burn situation,” Risty said. “For instance, there was a propane fire in Lennox last week. One guy received burns over 50 percent of his body and another guy over 20 percent. Those who are going to be first on the scene know how to treat and react.”
To make sure volunteer emergency management technicians and firefighters can take part, for the first time in Sioux Falls the seminar will be offered in the evening, too, Risty said. Organizers had received numerous requests for that possibility.
Between the four seminars, more than 900 people will take the training next week. Participants include physicians, medical students and nurses.
“One of the things we found out, the medical schools are not teaching this,” Risty said. “And there is no longer a burn facility in Sioux Falls. This is one of the few areas where providers will be able to find this kind of educational background for burns.”
Rock, a registered nurse for the last five years, works at Sanford Health’s The Burn Place. She took the pediatric burn trauma seminar in 2013 at the suggestion of her father, Don McCoy of Sioux Falls, who became a Shriner after the birth of her oldest child. Today Rock’s children are 9, 7, 21/2 and 4 months of age.
Shriners International is known for its network of 22 hospitals for children located in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
“I think he’s appreciated the appreciated the opportunity to help with the kiddos,” Rock said. “After every event, I know he’s grateful and thankful that our kiddos are healthy, and he really does enjoy being able to help those who need extra services.”
Every bit of information that a professional is able to obtain is valuable, said Rock, whose first degree is in public health education. The seminar also educated her on the long-term care needed by burn patients and the emotional toll it takes on the person and the family.
“It’s good to know because they’re coming back to us for this care,” she said. “It’s good to always be aware and able to offer this in support or even a smile, saying you’re going to be OK.”
If you go
WHAT: Pediatric burn trauma seminars offered through El Riad Shrine and Shriners Hospital for Children in Cincinnati

Over $13,000 Raised by Mason's Flood Benefit

A benefit dinner was held at theTuscan by the Masons on February 28, 2015. The dinner was a huge success, with over $13,000 raised for families affected by the floods that ravaged the county in August of 2014.
Along with the dinner, there was a silent and live auction held with items donated from several local business's. Items that were donated included gift certificates to various local business's, paintings, several firearms, two fourwheelers, a moped, and vouchers for autmotive services.
The Masons' would like to thank everyone who participated in the benefit and the auctions. Even the smallest donation can make a world of difference to those affected by the floods.

Shriners Dollars for Shamrocks & Parade

Six years ago, the fledgling St. Patrick's Day parade in Grand Forks, ND zigged and zagged around about 10 blocks. The next year, the itty bitty parade came across the Sorlie Bridge from East Grand Forks. And for the past four years, the parade — such as it is — has been running down Third Street. It starts at Widman's and proceeds down South Third Street to Kelly's Tavern
Mother Nature doesn't always smile on St. Patrick's Day parades. But this year, she at least will not be frowning. And Bill Steckler, the instigator of the parade, said it will begin at 3 p.m. Saturday. It will be led by David Bickel of Bismarck who is Grand Master of North Dakota Masons.
Along with their support of the parade, some local businesses are contributing dollars for shamrocks. The money goes to help support the Shriner Hospital for children in Minneapolis. The parade sponsors are the Masons of Malta Lodge in Grand Forks.
Steckler, who belongs to the Masons, is hoping for more families and pets to join in the parade this year.
Another great tradition for St. Patrick's Day in Grand Forks is the annual luncheon at St. Michael's Church. It's open to the public. And those who come on Saturday will hear accordion music as well as Irish songs by students of Maria Williams Kennedy.
It just doesn't matter that St. Patrick's Day actually is Tuesday.

Masons donate books to Reese Elementary School

 Source: Daniel Moellenbernd
On Feb. 27, members of Lodi Lodge No. 256 Free and Accepted Masons delivered 1,240 donated books to Reese Elementary School. The books were gathered by members of the lodge to augment the in-classroom libraries of the school.
This is the fourth such book drive by lodge members, and to date a total of over 5,000 books have been donated to Lodi area elementary schools. The project was developed by lodge member Shawn McCarty. All California Masonic lodges support public education and this is just one example of their desire to improve the quality of public schools.

A Drive to Help

“I saw some pictures in a magazine one time with some toys,” Ron Ackerson, of Spearfish, said of that aspect of his woodworking hobby that he began in his retirement. Raised in Ellendale, N.D., Ackerson lived in Williston and worked in the oil business before retiring about 10 years ago, when he and his wife, Helen, moved to Spearfish. He started Ron’s Antler Art, making custom creations ranging from lamps to chandeliers and beyond as he developed the craft.
After seeing the magazine photos, he decided to try his hand at toys, as well. As a Shriner, Ackerson is familiar with the Shriners Hospital for Children in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, and when he learned that the hospital preferred toys without finish, nails, or metallic pieces, he began making and donating 150 wooden cars each month to the hospital. He delivers the cars to Rapid City, and they are then transported to Minneapolis. He later got a call from the Shriners hospital in Houston, Texas, which had heard about his wooden toys. They asked how much he charged, and he explained that they were donations, asking how many the hospital might be interested in.
“They said, ‘Well, we’d like to have 1,000.’” Ackerson said. “I said OK — but you’ll have to arrange for shipping.” And sure enough, representatives drove up to Spearfish to pick up the wooden cars in a brand-new pickup, after an auto dealer who heard about the donation provided the hospital the use of the truck for free.
Ackerson said there’s a lot of satisfaction in knowing that children can enjoy the toys he makes, and he knows the hospitals have a great need for toys of this kind.
In addition to the Shriners, Ackerson has donated toys to various organizations on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and to the St. Labre Indian School in Ashland, Mont., and he also donates cars to local businesses, including Perkins Restaurant and Mark’s Old School Barber & Style Shop. Ackerson knew that Perkins supports Give Kids the World, a nonprofit organization that provides weeklong fantasy vacations to children with life-threatening diseases and their families in central Florida, and anyone who makes a donation to the organization at Perkins receives a wooden car. As a result of this partnership, Ackerson started making bigger models of the wooden toys, adding tractors, semi-trailer trucks, dump trucks, trains, and more, to give to donors supporting the organization.
Marc Casavan, owner of Mark’s Barber Shop, said that he had known Ackerson for years, and last year Ackerson asked if the barber shop would be interested in having wooden cars on hand to give out to children. Casavan said they would, and now the barbers hand out the cars to children who come in for haircuts or to those there with their families. Many have never seen handmade toys before, and Casavan said they are excited at the prospect of getting to customize the cars with paint.
“It’s pretty unbelievable for him to donate that around to everybody,” Casavan said. “He’s taking time to do that — that’s something special.”
Amos Armijo, barber at Mark’s Barber Shop, agreed.
“The barber shop really appreciates what he does. The kids are excited when they pick up the cars,” he said. “He’s just been a miracle to us.”
Most of the material Ackerson uses to make the cars is donated by Custom Woodworks and ProBuild, and he is always looking for donations of white or yellow pine, since those types of wood are harder to come by.
While it takes a lot of time and equipment, Ackerson said that he can make a couple of dozen smaller wooden cars in a day, and though he hasn’t had a chance to go to the children’s hospitals where his cars are distributed, he gets a lot of thank-you cards from the groups there.
“I just enjoy doing it,” Ackerson said.
