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.
Potentate's Message -Updated July 3rd
Just wanted to post a quick note to thank everyone for their attendance at the Spring Ceremonial in Saint John on June 13 & 14. We had a wonderful weekend and a terrific parade. We enjoyed the company of our new Shriners and their Ladies and honoured a man of integrity, Ill. Sir Alward Mehan. All in attendance seemed to have a good time and, while the planning was done quickly, Lady Karen and I were pleased, overall, with how everything went and the response Luxor has received.
We would especially like to thank all of those who helped out with the planning and during the weekend itself. Support is imperative and we thank all of you who have shown that to Lady Karen and I, as well as to Luxor itself, for that is the reason we do it in the first place!
Your representatives will be off to Minneapolis for the 140th Imperial Session from July 6th to 10th. We look forward to an informative week and will carry back lots of information to share with our members. We would also like to wish our very own, Doodle the Clown, good luck in the clown competitions. Watch our facebook page for pictures.
On July 27th we will be holding our Stated Meeting in Woodstock and then many units will be in the Woodstock Old Home Week Parade. We hope to see you there! Many other parades and festivals will be taken in by our units this summer. Please have fun and be safe. If you require any informative materials concerning Luxor and/or Shriners Hospitals, call Shelley in the office to get it out to you in time for your event.
Don't forget to register for the NSA to be held in Springfield, Ma in August and give some thought to our upcoming joint Visitation with Philae Shriners in Moncton in September. All are welcome to attend these events and are very much encouraged by your Executive as ways to foster growth and new ideas within our own Shrine Centre. Information and registration forms can be found in the News & Events tab of the website.
Watch for more updates in a few weeks and, in the meantime, have a great summer and remember to smile.............It makes people wonder what you're up to!
YITF Ill. Sir Barry Mabey
Continuing to Live, Love & Laugh in 2014!
