Ill. Sir Wayne Miner &
WA WA has turned another page in the 106 years history by electing me as their leader for the ensuing year. I am truly humbled and gratified to accept this honor. I am humbled knowing the talent, the means, and the leadership provided by my predecessors. I am gratified knowing the impact we have on the lives of the many children we help that are less fortunate than many of us.
I congratulate ILL Sir Harry and Lady Jean on a successful year. WA WA Shriners were more visible as a result of your efforts and drive to get Units on display. The 2016 Ceremonial was huge success with a recent record 41 new nobles and ladies joining our Temple.
ILL Sir Dick Gutfriend PP and ILL Sir Stu McLaughlin PP, with help of Past Potentates, assisted and directed the election and installation of the 2017 Divan. All Past Potentates are to be commended for their continued active support of WA WA’s ceremonies and administration.
Illustrious Sir Wayne Miner
