Ladies of the household, this is my first message and I am introducing myself as your new Queen for 2018/2019. I have spent the last two years training, watching and hopefully learning my way around the Nile to become your Queen. I fully intend to continue to help make Nydia Temple No. 4 grow as much as I can possibly do, both by full ceremonials and by Obligation only initiations if circumstances demand.
I realize I am following a wonderful Queen Jennifer and admire her tremendously. Hopefully I have learned much from her. She has instituted many new and fantastic ideas for us to go forward with and I am committed to follow through with. However, you may see my slant on what she has started, but together we will reach the same goals.
I am looking forward to the summer picnics and official visits to each and every one of your clubs and units. I am also looking forward to Supreme Session where we will hopefully learn much of what is expected of our temples, and plan to carry out any and all policies. Our whole purpose for being is to support the Shriners Hospitals in Portland and Hawaii, and anywhere else we can be of service. I thank you all in advance for your help and support in making this a memorable year and one we can be proud of.
Love, Queen Reba Hardin
