Noble Dennis L. Chesley Named Shriner of the Month


Noble Dennis L. Chesley of Zembo Shriners in Harrisburg, Pa., has been named Shriner of the Month for July 2014. The new award program, which launched in January 2014, was developed by the leadership of Shriners International to recognize those nobles who demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to both the fraternity and its philanthropy, Shriners Hospitals for Children. Personal displays of leadership, especially by example, and consistent participation in temple activities and efforts, and/or support of the health care system, all contribute to consideration for the award.

A Dependable Leader Noble Chesley of Camp Hill, Pa., has been a Shriner for nearly 30 years. He is very involved in many facets of his temple, but he is most notably known for his participation and exceptional leadership as part of the Zembo Color Guard Unit. Whenever there is a parade or other community activity that the Color Guard is a part of, under his direction, the unit performs admirably. Noble Chesley also works tirelessly on behalf of the Zembo Circus each year, as well as for the Zembo Car Show and Zembo Sportsman Day.Dedicated to the philanthropy, Shriners Hospitals for Children, and to making the world a better place, Noble Chesley contributes much of his time and efforts to Zembo’s fundraising initiatives. He is also extremely faithful in attending meetings and all other temple activities, further demonstrating his steadfast commitment to the fraternity.

An Ambassador for his Temple Realizing the importance of membership to the strength and success of the organization, Noble Chesley has brought many new nobles to the temple over the years. He unfailingly serves as a representative of Zembo Shriners at both fraternal events and meetings of other Masonic organizations. A loyal, dependable member of his temple, “he is always there,” said Zembo Recorder Henry J. Martin. “Noble Chesley exemplifies the spirit of the Shriner of the Month Award,” said Shriners International Executive Vice President and Imperial Recorder Jack H. Jones. “We are grateful to have him as a member within our organization.”

Congratulations to Noble Chesley for his achievements and for being chosen Shriner of the Month.

Spotlight on Shriners Hospitals for Children:


3551 N. Broad St. Philadelphia, PA 19140-4131 

PH: 215-430-4000  / Patient Referrals: 1-800-237-5055

       At Shriners Hospitals for Children — Philadelphia, we provide state-of-the-art medical care for children with spinal cord injuries, as well as a host of orthopaedic and neuromusculoskeletal disorders and diseases. Our family-centered approach to care means every member of our team, from doctors, nurses and therapists, to our world-class research team, is focused on improving the child’s function and independence, while supporting the family every step of the way.
Since our first hospital opened its doors in 1922, providing care for pediatric orthopaedic conditions has been a foundation of Shriners Hospitals for Children. We can help children with essentially any orthopaedic condition, other than an acute trauma.  Shriners Hospitals for Children is dedicated to providing medical and rehabilitative services to children with congenital deformities and conditions, problems resulting from orthopaedic injuries, and diseases of the neuromusculoskeletal system.

The majority of our locations provide pediatric orthopaedic care. Commonly treated conditions include:

  • Clubfoot
  • Hand disorders
  • Limb deficiencies/discrepancies
  • Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease and other hip disorders
  • Scoliosis (curvature of the spine)
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease)
  • Juvenile idiopathic arthritis
  • Orthopaedic problems associated with cerebral palsy and spina bifida

      At 12 of our locations, the orthopaedic physicians and clinical staff have access to movement analysis laboratories. These high-tech labs use a system of reflective markers, high-speed cameras and computers to develop a model of a child’s walking pattern that can provide data to assist the medical team in recommending the best treatment plan.  In addition to innovative treatments and therapies, several Shriners Hospitals for Children have in-house orthotics and prosthetics (O&P) departments capable of creating a full range of devices. The O&P teams collaborate closely with the physicians, nurses and occupational and physical therapists to achieve the best possible outcome for their patients.  Our goal is to help each child become as healthy and independent as possible. We are dedicating to providing a complete range of appropriate medical and rehabilitative services to achieve this objective, including surgeries, physical, occupational and recreation therapies and orthotics and prosthetics.   At Shriners Hospitals for Children, each patient receives an individualized care plan incorporating the full range of needed multidisciplinary services, always incorporating the patient and family’s goals and addressing their concerns.
