The Cocke County Shrine Club is honoring one of its late members during the entire annual Shrine paper sale this week in Newport, announced Jimmy Clark, club president.

"We are honoring the memory of our brother, C. T. Hudson, who died last year. He was an outstanding Shriner, citizen, and our friend," said Clark.

Shriners raise funds each May to support the many Shrine hospitals that treat crippled and burned children. The Cocke County club is part of the Kerbela Temple, of Knoxville, which has a goal of raising $1 million.

Hudson would have been on the highways this week helping Shriners raise money to reach the local goal of about $35,000, said Clark.

In 1990, Hudson became a Shriner and volunteered to drive the van to take children and their parents to area Shrine hospitals at Greenville, South Carolina; Lexington, Kentucky; and Cincinnati, Ohio, among others.

"He loved children and they loved him. We could always depend on his faithfulness to the Shrine cause of helping crippled and burned children," said Clark.
