Our local Shrine Centers (chapters) around the world have thousands of activity-based clubs, units and events that provide ways for members to connect with each other in a fun environment. A unique aspect of our local chapters is that creativity is encouraged, and if a club for a particular activity doesn’t exist, members are empowered to create one. This position also supports the hospital system that the Shriners International fraternity founded in 1922.
