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.

Well, it’s been quite a winter so far and the weather has caused havoc with travel. None the less, we have managed to have three Divan meetings and three Luminary meetings so far.
Lady Ginette and I were fortunate to be at the Shrine Clinic held in Bathurst on Tuesday Feb 24th. Dr. Fassier was able to meet with 17 children. The clinic was an eye opener for us as we saw child and parent coming and going and all were extremely grateful for Shriners. The Nobles from the North Shore Shrine Club were on hand to meet and greet the families and provide assistance and guidance. A big Thank You to these Nobles who are so dedicated to the operation of this Clinic.
I have just returned from the Northeast Shrine Association mid-winter meeting which was held in the beautiful towns of Lewiston-Auburn, Maine. The weekend went well and it appears that Kora Shrine Club has everything ready for the Fall Field Days on Sept 17th to the 19th. We were able to secure accommodations at the Ramada Inn in Lewiston. Check the Spring Luminary or this website soon for details and registration. As Luxor will be hosting the NSA in 2016 in Fredericton, N.B., it is advisable that as many Nobles and in particular units who may wish to compete attend the 2015 Fall Field Days.
The Spring Ceremonial and Stated Meeting is fast approaching. There will be a motion on the table regarding a dues increase so it’s important that we have a good turnout. Our team from the Moncton Shrine Club is wrapping up the details. We have our hotel blocked, the parade route chosen and the Friday and Sat fun time events completed.
We are looking for more candidates and encourage you to sponsor a new candidate and have him and his lady enjoy this event on June 5th – 6th.
The new Cabala’s store and the new Princess Auto store will be open by then so come on down to Moncton for some fun, fellowship and shopping. Check your Spring Luminary or this website for further details and registration. You are once again encouraged to register early so we may meet the hotel deadlines.
Nobles, I can’t stress strongly enough the need for new members. Each and every one of us must do our best to bring on new members so we may continue to provide for our Shrine Children. Without new members the challenge of fund raising is difficult at best. As Shriners and leaders, it is our responsibility to guide others so that they achieve the same emotion, pride and fellowship we experience as Shriners. When we do, our organization will prosper. The keys to membership development are recruitment and retention. As the old saying goes, good work takes time and this task is no exception.
