Tommy Helms    |    


Noble Tommy Helms became a member of the Oasis line in 2015, when he served as 2nd Ceremonial Master, appointed by Illustrious Sir Todd Ham.

Noble Tommy was appointed as Director of Clubs and Units by Illustrious Sir Fred Laxton in 2013, and again by Illustrious Sir David Sumpter in 2014. He served a very distinguished term as Director, filling a very difficult role for the membership.
Noble Tommy was born, raised, and currently resides in Mt. Holly, NC with his wife, Lady Kelly. He attended East Gaston High School and Central Piedmont College. He is employed by Airgas National Welders.

Noble Tommy was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason in 1998 in Mt. Holly Lodge #544, where he served as Master in 2005. He was made a Shriner in the Asheville class of 1998. He is a member of the Scottish Rite, and a member of Jesters.

He holds membership in the Red Fez Shrine Club, Metrolina Shrine Club, and Shriners on Bikes. In addition, he is a member of the Drum and Bugle Corps, and has served as Captain of his unit. He is also a member of the Past Captains unit.

As you would suspect, from his membership in the S.O.B.’s, he is a motorcycle enthusiast, and counts among his greatest pleasures riding his motorcycle, and beach trips with family and friends.

He counts as his most memorable experience in Masonry being installed as Master of his Lodge fifty years to the date his Grandfather was raised a Master Mason. What a wonderful tribute to a person who has such a positive impact on your life.

A close second would be his experience on the weekend he was made a Shriner. The comradeship and fellowship will always be implanted in his mind, as will be sharing the stage with his close friend, Cody Williams, who by his antics caused him and Noble Tommy to receive extra attention, to the delight of the Nobility. He cites his membership in the Shrine as having changed his life, and given him some valued, lifelong friends.

We are indeed fortunate to have a member with Noble Tommy’s abilities serving us in this, one of the most important Divan positions.
