We Need Your Help

Hi ladies, we need your help, and we need it like never before.

The Covid19 pandemic has been unkind to us – unkind to us in many ways.  Our country, our community, our ways of life, and all the nice and wonderful things we enjoyed have suffered.  And it continues.  It has become apparent we cannot just sit back any longer, let the pandemic run its course, and hope that soon our lives will be back to normal.  While we’re doing all we can do to reduce or eliminate the virus, our lives go on; we must pay bills, we sadly must say goodbye to our faithful members.  During this time, we have been prevented from initiating new members, holding fundraisers, and just getting together to enjoy each other’s company, and support each other through these difficult months.  As a result, the temple is now experiencing budget and membership issues, which are creeping towards a crisis.  Already this year (since April 1st) we have lost 14 members to death.

How can you help?  We are requesting, even imploring our current members to help us in getting new members, keeping the ones we have, and restoring those we have lost. 

Please, please, please,

This is another option available to our members (along with existing payment methods of cash, check, or credit card).

This Venmo account is linked to Nydia Temple’s bank account. When a transfer is received from a member’s Venmo account, the Pr. Recorder immediately transfers it into the Temple bank account and the Pr. Banker enters the transaction into the Temple’s Quickbooks.
It’s all done electronically – instantly and easily. The best part, NO FEES!
Want a little bit more information about Venmo?

October Stated Session by Zoom

Dear Ladies of the Household,

Nydia Temple No. 4 is delighted to announce the initiation of one, and possibly more, new members, by an Obligation Only Ceremony prior to our October Session this Wednesday. (Keep those proposals coming in, so we can triple that number in January, or better!) 

This month we are meeting again via Zoom.  By so doing, we honor the dictum of Al Kader’s Potentate, that

October Stated Session

Due to pandemic regulations at the Shrine Center, the October stated session will be held on Zoom, rather than in person.  But, exciting news – we will begin the stated session with an Obligation-Only Ceremony, and have a new member join us.  The Zoom link and other information will be coming out closer to the October 6th session.  I hope many of you can join us to welcome our new member.

 

September Stated Session on Zoom

Ladies, after careful consideration, it is clear to me that it would be in the best interest of our Temple and our ladies to hold the September stated session via Zoom, rather than in person.  I am truly disappointed, however, I feel it’s important to heed the warnings of the virus and its variants, and to follow the new rules of the State of Oregon and the Al Kader Shrine Center.

The September Stated Session will be held by Zoom on Wednesday, September 1st, starting at 12:30

Nydia Temple is Recognized by the Foundation

At our first virtual Supreme Session held last week, Nydia Temple was honored for contributions made in 2020.  Nydia Temple remains a member of the Foundation Club, giving a total of $15,462.  (The Foundation Club recognizes Temples who contribute $10,000+ each year.) 

For Holiday Sharing – we won 1st place!  For donations to the Rose Garden, we won 4th place!  Woo-hoo!!

Since the Daughters of the Nile began giving to the hospitals, we have given over $68 million.  Sure feels good to be a part of that.

It was announced that the Daughters of the Nile Foundation will present $1,720.000 to

April’s Mid-Month Social, by Zoom

Dear Ladies of the Household,

Hi everyone, due to popular request, the mid-month social by Zoom will be on April 21st, rather than April 14th.   The time remains the same at 5:00 pm.  For the trivia question – which zoom link will work to join on April 21st?  The final answer is either one will work.  If you don’t already have the link and need it, contact either PQ Jennifer Moyer at nydiarecorderno4@gmail.com or PQ Kathy Walliker at kathywalliker@gmail.com.  Thank you everyone, and hope to see many of you there.  Remember to bring a joke,

Dear Nydia Ladies of the Household, I am honored and proud to be your new Queen for the 2021-2022 Nile year.  We are continuing to be in a world of quarantine and masking, but time will come when we can meet and celebrate our mission and friendships together.  Thank you dear installing officers and all of you who made our event a huge success.  We have received wonderful feedback about it.

It’s already time for the first stated session of this new year, which will be held on Zoom (as will the May stated session), on Wednesday, April 7th, starting
