Ziyara Shriners Clubs
“Friends of the Shrine” Band
This is a very important club, while it may not be properly referred to as Unit, it always has and always will be considered a Unit by all the Ziyara Family. Where would we be today without music? It is hard to name a function where some sort of music is not used. Please note that both men and women can join the Band wear the “Cap” of the “Friends of the Shrine”.
Western Shrine CLUB
Share information about activities of the Shrine and other Masonic activities as they may be noted. The Western Shine Club meets once a month even during the summer months, when most clubs and units go dark. They meet at restaurants usually located in western part of the Ziyara Shrine Area. Any noble will be happy to assist you in becoming a member of this unit.
