Shrine Clubs are what make the Children the "Heart of the Shrine".

 

Shrine Clubs are the major support of our great philanthropy and a source of fun and fellowship.
Shrine club Officers should maintain active programs that stimulate and interest both Nobles and their ladies throughout the year. Well planned activities create an appreciation of, and an affection for, our great fraternity.

Scores of qualified Masons are within the operating area of every Shrine club and are just waiting for an invitation to join the Shrine. Each Noble should seek applicants for shrine membership - and prospects for club affiliation - from among friends and acquaintances. Each Club's membership committee should work closely with Aladdin's Membership Representatives and the assigned Divan Representatives to promote membership.

Your Illustrious Potentate relies in large measure upon the cooperation and efforts of club leaders and members to achieve Aladdin's goals each year.



Shrine Club Guidelines

Official guides for the conduct of Shrine Clubs have been established by the Imperial Council as follows:

Each club should have a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Chairman, Medical Director and Publicity Chairman. All elected officers must be members in good standing of Aladdin Shrine.

The president will select members of his committees, each of whom must be a member of his club. They do not have to be a Noble of the sponsoring Center. The President is directly responsible to the Potentate. He shall see that the names of his officers and committees are reported promptly to the recorder of his Center so the the names will be on file for future reference.

The President is the Noble to whom the Illustrious Potentate and Recorder of Aladdin Shrine look to for the leadership and activity of Shrine affairs in his club.
