"Gary Bergenske, 2005 Potentate of
Bahia Shriners, Orlando, Florida riding in Noble Lee Dunkins
1955 Pontiac. This was the official car of the
Potentate as Bahia celebrated their 50th Anniversary. Both
the Pontiac and the Shrine Center were 50 years old."
Ill. Sir Gary has a keen desire to help, aid and
assist all Shriners. His leadership and
communication skills have really shined in the
many TRAC visits he has performed.

have had the pleasure of working with Ill. Sir
Gary the past 5 years. Gary is a Noble who can
and will make a difference. He doesn't have
hidden agendas and only wants to work for our
Fraternity and Philanthropy. The Imperial
Membership programs have evolved the past
several years as a result of Gary's
involvement. Gary is a innovator who thinks
outside the box every day. I am confident that
Gary won't just "talk the talk" but rather he
will make a real difference in the future of the
Shrine of North America.

Ill. Sir Gary,
Your influence, since I met you, has always
been positive and clearly focused. The one
element that I hope to take with me from
your style in 2005 is the importance to
focus on the positive. I will continue to
pattern my input to leadership, and in
everyday experiences, after your positive
Style is a critical issue that Lady Anne
brought to Bahia in 2005. She was a Lady of
position in all respects. My wife and I both
believe that all of Bahia has benefited by
her grace and graciousness.
A Loyal Noble,

I am a
Noble at Ararat Shrine Temple in Kansas
City, MO. The once sleepy Temple of the
Mid-West. Today, our Temple is alive and
buzzing with talk of plans and calendars
and fundraisers and events. Why? A
simple email from Ill. Sir Gary to our
Ill. Sir Hank mentioning a little daily
email newsletter he was using at Bahia.
implemented Ill Sir Gary's idea in
October 2005. Today, just 4 months later
our email newsletter has grown from 57
to 641 nobles and friends, and it
continues to grow everyday. Everyone is
talking about it. We have a new energy
in the Temple. Everyone is still working
hard, but now everyone in "connected"
and even more productive than before. I
am a firm believer in Ill. Sir Gary's
ideas and plans. I can honestly say that
he has got us on the right TRAC.

There is no
paycheck that can equal the feeling of
being a Shriner
and visiting a Shriners Hospital for
contentment and pride swells up
within you as
you find the full meaning of being
person, giving to others.
