Thomas Young, newly elected Alzafar Shriners Potentate, sure knows how to make an entrance! Young rode in on a vintage mini car, the same he has ridden at countless Fiesta Flambeau Parades. The Potentate’s Ball was held at the San Antonio Shrine Auditorium on Saturday, February 9, 2013.
During the event, Young set the tone for his upcoming year of service when he spoke about his goals for raising awareness for the Shriners Hospitals for Children.
