Paul Brigitzer - Antioch Potentate 2019

Antioch's Potentate 2019

Paul Paulie V. Brigitzer

Potentate's Message

WOW ! Two months have gone by since I took office as Your Potentate. It’s a been a busy two months, the first ever Shriner’s Rock event has ended in a success and we have more great concerts planned throughout this year. I am excited about other upcoming events, including the Monte Carlo, The Pote’s Lenten Fish Fry’s, and Lady Allison’s Fashion Exchange Event (just in time for the Ball!) and Purple Rain Party, just to mention a few. To make it easier for our non-Shriner friends to spend some of their money with us, we have purchased an ATM machine thanks to the generosity of some wonderful Clubs and Units. This is a great investment that will help increase revenue at our events, all in support of Antioch.

I am also proud to announce Ms. Bobbi Jo Wright, the little girl memorialized on the iconic Silent Messenger will attend the 2019 Potentate’s Ball on May 4th. This was made possible through yet more generosity of some Clubs and Units, and I give a special and heartfelt ‘thank you’ to Ill. Sir Jim Brewer for spearheading this. The Antioch Motor Corp – the Unit I joined as soon as I became a Shriner – is providing transportation through our drivers, Ill. Sir David Heizer and Noble Hollis Shifflett. Please plan to attend the Ball and meet Bobbi, the most iconic figure in Shrinedom. The annual Circus is fast approaching and CR Todd Rider has been working long days to make this a success…without the benefit of a circus office staff! Next time you see Todd, please be sure to give him a pat on the back.

In closing, I give my thanks to each and every one of you for your support to not only myself and the Divan, but our fraternity and our hospitals.


Yours in the Faith,

Illustrious Sir Paul Brigitzer
