Shriners – Making the World a Better Place

Benefits to Becoming a Philae Shriner

Your Cohort of Master Masons Wanting to Join Shriners
Have The Following Interests

Philae Shriners has activity-based clubs, units and events that provide ways for members to connect with each other in a fun environment.

What is your brand of fun? Clowning around? Sports? Playing the bag pipes? How about an interest in brewing? Do enjoy social media?

Maybe, it’s a talent you enjoy sharing or is it lending a helping hand?

Shriners build fun around a central interest and the possibilities are limitless. You are the creator of your experience as a Shriner. Bring your ideas and join in fun with a purpose for the ultimate fellowship.

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.

  • The Oriental Band…is usually the first unit formed by an emerging Temple, Philae being no exception.
 
  • After WW11 when men were returning from the horrors they witnessed abroad, they chose to add some humour and music to our parades.  We parade to pay back the public for their support.
 
  • Our Oriental Band has suffered drastically as a result of the “Black Camel” having decimated ourranks.  Our P.P. Fred Jewer, a 55 yr Shriner and lead drummer passed the bar a couple years ago.  Our Musical Director, Noble Ernie Brown, 35+ years to mention a few, recently passed.
 
  • We have acquired some new members and are attempting to pass on what musical skills we have to ensure the unit continues to exist.
 
  • We continue to meet at the Philae Shrine Ctr. on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at 7p.m.
 
  • Come out and enjoy our fellowship. We like to say, “if you can play the radio and count to seven- we can make you an Oriental Bandsman”.  Dues are minimal and we may be able to fit you out with a uniform.  Nobles with trailers and towing ability are strongly needed as our present members are getting too old to march the long parade routes.
    We, along with many units need new Noble’s support.  It is fine to join the Shrine and a Shrine Club but, we need your support in what ever unit ON THE STREET, to thank our public for their support.

We take great pride in our activities. We love to see the joy and wonder on the faces of children as we make balloon animals, try to work our magic or simply act like big kids ourselves. We get up close and personal with those that Shriners cherish most…the KIDS!!
