OFFICERS

Meet on Thurs. following the 1st Wed. at Spokane S.H. at Noon

PRESIDENT CURLY WERNER
VICE PRESIDENT BOB KEM
SEC/TREASURER HERB POSTLEWAIT
REPORTER ROBERT VALENTINE
 

The Greeter’s main job is to conduct tours at the Shriner’s Hospital here in Spokane. We are also called upon to escort VIPs at the Potentate’s ball and other events. Other duties include participating in special events at the hospital, in parades, etc.

John Hoffmann is the Chairman of the patient advocacy program. This activity assigns a Noble to a patient for as long as the patient receives care at the hospital. The Noble need not be a Greeter.

Being on duty at the hospital, which amounts to about one day a month, is a very rewarding experience, as the Greeter sees some of the patients and parents which puts faces on our philanthropy.

Even though we do not get personally involved with the patient or their parents, it is rewarding to see how we as Nobles help these children.
