Arabia Units Hot Rods




The Three Time Texas Shrine Association Champions continue to be active in summer parades and celebrate the recent Multi-Wheel Championship earned at TSA Competition in Fort Worth. Members of the winning team this year are Denton Bryant, Captain; Glenn Paxton, Lieutenant; Richard Ventrca, Secretary/Treasurer; Ronnie Ellis, Drill Master; Stuart Glasscock, and John Hinders. Other team members include Jack Glasscock, Past Potentate; Jim Owen, Richard (Pat) Patterson and Burl Johnson. We all thank Lady Mary Jane Ventrca for cheering us on to victory at TSA and taking those priceless pictures.

Special thanks to Jim Owen and Lady Marsha for hosting an outstanding Welcome Home from TSA at their beautiful home. The food was exquisite and the casual dress and atmosphere by the swimming pool was enjoyed by all. We were honored to have Illustrious Sir Mike Ellis and Lady Phyllis as our guests for the Victory Celebration.Arabia Hot Rods have a continuing commitment to participate in Parades where we have an opportunity to enjoy driving our amazing 1932 Ford Roadsters. Parades such as the Valentine Parade in Palacios, the Go Texan Parade in Conroe, the St. Patricks Day Parade in Houston, and The Maifest Parade in Brenham are good examples. If you like to have fun, the Hot Rods Unit is the one to join.

In addition to working in the Circus and the IHOP Benefit this year we had another enjoyable experience working as volunteers in the Annual Classy Chassis Car Show held at Reliant Stadium. This event benefits Shrine Hospitals in Houston and Galveston. If you did not attend or volunteer at the car show this year you really missed a lot of fun.

The entire Arabia Hot Rod Team is looking forward to the Victory Dance at Arabia Shrine Center where we will have an opportunity to see our new unit meeting room. Plans are shaping up for the interior design which should be a pleasing environment for everyone.

For those Arabia Shriners who would like to drive a Hot Rod and enjoy all the fun activities with our unit, we invite you to join us. We have several Hot Rods for sale and now is the time to join our team. You could be enjoying driving your own Hot Rod in the parades planned for the fall and winter. We currently meet at 6:30 p.m. the first Thursday each month at Stracks Restaurant located at 5707 Louetta Road, Houston, Texas. We bring our families and enjoy dinner together and then the team breaks into a short business meeting. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
