Thank you, Nydia members, for putting your faith in me by electing me as your Queen. I will do my upmost best representing Nydia Temple during 2023.
I have chosen my counterpart emblem, the dragonfly. My Supreme officer, Patty Larimore, felt it best represents her dragging her suitcase through the airport and flying. Thus dragonfly.
I found a quote I really like regarding dragonflies, “With the dawn of each new day the dragonfly brings hope and joy.”
As members it is our hope our donations to Shriners Children’s through our Foundation will improve the quality of life for a Shriner patient and for the joy the child will have when achieving a new milestone.
For the members of Nydia Temple, it’s the hope we will meet our goals and achieve our mission. The joy we gain in our accomplishments and joy and fun we have meeting socially.
For Nydia Temple to achieve its goals we need a strong membership. One way is by increasing our membership. I am hoping all members will join with me in achieving our goal of bringing in 35 new members during 2023. To show how strongly I feel about this goal. I am prepared to donate $5 to our Foundation for every new proposal read at Session. For each new member we bring in I will donate $10 to Nydia’s general fund.
We also need to retain our existing membership. Some ways we will do this is through quarterly newsletters, keep our Facebook page updated, weekly updates using Constant Contact, meaningful Sessions, and social events. Our Membership committee has planned four separate social events which you can brings friends and family to participate. There will also be a spring luncheon, holiday event and a member appreciation event.
Please join me in making Nydia Temple No. 4 a strong viable temple, making lasting friendships and having fun while meeting our mission, helping Shriners Children’s patients through Daughters of the Nile Foundation.
Queen Holly and all Nydia Temple members, wanted to honor the staff at the Shriners Hospitals for Children – Portland for their dedication and exceptional care of the children during this pandemic time. Even though our volunteers have not been allowed in the hospital for a year, she wanted the staff to know we are looking forward to the time we can return. How did she accomplish this when no non-essential persons are allowed into the hospital at this time? Watch the video to find out. This video will be played at their all-hospital-wide staff meetings, so each staff member will know how much he/she is appreciated.

Calling all photographers – amateur, professional, and in between. To help redesign and build our website, we need pictures of our ladies all around Nydia Temple. We want all those pictures; the fun ones, the serious ones, the formal ones, the casual ones, and the ones you took just because.
Please forward your pictures to a new email address set up specifically to keep our pictures – firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep them coming all the time. Old or new, we want them all.
Come and join the Officers of Nydia Temple No. 4 at a fun, fact filled Workshop to learn the art of being a Mentor. Topics will include the history of Daughters of the Nile, the history of Nydia Temple, Supreme Temple Bylaws and Protocol, plus much more valuable information.
On Saturday, November 21, 2020 we will present a socially distanced, safety aware day of fun, facts, and sociability at the Al Kader Shrine Center. The day will begin at 10 AM and end by 2 PM. There will be a light lunch provided and plenty of snacks and beverages for all.
If you would like to participate in this fun-filled day of learning, please register with the Princess Recorder at email@example.com or call her at 503-888-2562. There is no charge for the day and it promises to be worthwhile for all.

The Foundation Club and Holiday Sharing Awards Ceremony was shared per a Zoom meeting on October 25. Only those temples receiving awards were invited to attend, as well as Foundation members, and Supreme Officers.
Nydia Temple received 10th place in total Foundation donations, giving $25,890, and for Holiday Sharing for Temples 300+ members, we received a first place with $9,396.
Imperial Sir Jim Smith, along with his wife (Princess) Alice, was also present. Imperial Sir Jim spoke of being the first Imperial Sir to be working with a $1 billion budget. He acknowledged that the Daughters of the Nile give financially and of their time, and are second only to the Shriners themselves.
Thank you all for your generosity as we work together in helping the children. Queen Holly
