Shriners of North America is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth. Shriners are also Master Masons, meaning they belong to the Masonic fraternity.
When you become a Shriner you become part of a brotherhood of men committed to family, engaged in ongoing personal growth, and dedicated to providing care for children in need. As a Shriner, you build bonds that can last a lifetime.
Becoming a Shriner is easier than you might think and its rewards can be far more than you expect.

Nobles of Luxor Shrine,
Well my year as your Potentate is quickly drawing to a close. I want to say thank you for allowing me, along with your 2013 Divan, to work with each and everyone to continue the great works of the Shrine.
I have been able to work with some of the most dedicated Nobles and their Ladies that you will find anywhere. Look what we have accomplished. Over 278 Shrine children and parents have been transported and billeted at our Shrine Hospital in Montreal at a cost of over $160,000.00 as of the end of October. We will fulfill our obligation to the new hospital in Montreal with the second of our $14,000.00 contributions over 10 years. No small feat for a group our size. That is a lot of hard work and I thank you.
I want to thank you also for allowing Pauly and me to travel and participate in Shrine activities, be the face of Luxor at Imperial; more importantly to be the face of Luxor in New Brunswick. We would not have had the chance to meet so many warm, welcoming and dedicated people without this position. It has been an honor for us both.
“Shriners Helping Kids and Having Fun” were the words used by our departed late Potentate, Illustrious Sir Nate Rubinwhen he welcomed the new Shriners to Luxor in 2007. This was the year I came in andit has been an incredible 6 years. Like the majority of Luxor Shriners I hope to be able to contribute well into the future.
Pauly and I wish all Shriners and their families a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous and Happy New Year. The traditions of our past will help direct our future. Thank you!
Yours in the Faith,
Illustrious Sir Harold Crabbe & Lady Pauly
