Our PQ Kathy Walliker, whom we supported to run for Supreme Princess Badoura (and everything that follows), was in fact elected into this eminent position!
I know you’re wondering about theme and colors. In a nutshell, her group name is Kathy’s Dreamgirls and Nydia Temple is her Dream Team! Colors are dark rose, dusty rose, silver and white. Balloons will be flying prominently as one of her symbols. Her motto is “Dream It – Do It.”
Other notable events:
The McHenry Award was presented to PQ Holly Austin and PQ Judy C. Smith for their efforts resulting in the purchase and donation of adaptive skis for Shriners Children’s – Portland.
PQ Judy C. Smith – Supreme Action Team Committee
PQ Jennifer Moyer – Supreme Membership and Public Relations Committee
PQ Holly Austin – Supreme Goodwill Ambassador, NW Area
PQ Ann Myers – Supreme Temple American Flag Escort
PQ Paulette Schlee – Supreme Temple Brazilian Flag Escort

Please congratulate all of these special ladies! Also, be prepared to be asked – or you may volunteer – for special assignments related to our Supreme Princess Badoura’s preparations.
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 – email@example.com. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
