Shriners is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, truth and relief.
Throughout history both the Freemasons and Shriners have had a reputation for secrecy, but our mission is straightforward. Shriners are committed to:
•Being the premier fraternal organization for men of good character.
•Providing attractive, quality programs and services for its members, their families and their friends in a spirit of fun, fellowship and social camaraderie.
•Fostering self-improvement through leadership, education, the perpetuation of moral values and community involvement.
•Serving mankind through the resources of its philanthropy, Shriners Hospitals for Children®.

Clubs play an important part within the Shrine organization. Since The Oasis Shriner's Membership covers such a large jurisdiction and territory of North Carolina, smaller geographical Clubs are organized for fellowship purposes all throughout the entire state. It's a great showing of our organization and the involvement with all the local areas and city's. A great time is had by all.
