Shriners are...

Shriners are men who enjoy life, fun is a large part of the shrine. Shriners, along with their ladies, their families and friends have many opportunities to enjoy the fun the Shrine has to offer. Activities such as parades, dances, circuses, and parties offer something for every member of your family. Many of these activities help support the Shrine's philanthropy ... Shriners Hospitals for Children!

Mission

Our mission is to be the Premiere Fraternal Organization for men of good character committed to providing attractive, quality programs and services for its members, their families and friends in a spirited fun, fellowship and social camaraderie. Fostering self improvement through leadership, education, and the perpetuation of moral values and community and serving mankind through the resources of its great philanthropy, the Shriners Hospitals for Children.
