Shriners, and their distinctive fezzes (the tasseled burgundy headwear), are among the most recognizable organizations and symbols in the world. You see Shriners at parades and many community events. Its members enjoy their association, where men of all walks of life convene to have fun, and do good works.
While supporting Shriners Hospitals is their mission, Shriners also love to have fun! Whether it is a parade, a barbecue, or a holiday festival, Shriners like to spend time with their families, and the associated women’s organizations who are invested in the same philanthropic cause.
Abdallah Shriners have over 900 members, and you could be one of them! Membership requires initiation into the Freemasons, who meet in lodges all over northeast Kansas. Once a Mason, you can petition the Abdallah Shriners for membership, and you can start having more fun than you can imagine – all while supporting an amazing charity! www.beashrinernow.com

To become a Shriner, a man must reach the level of a Master Mason in Freemasonry.
Freemasonry dates back hundreds of years with its earliest members being stonemasons and operative craftsmen. The organization evolved over the centuries to include men from all walks of life, and is now one of the largest and most widely known fraternal organizations in the world. From the explosive growth of Freemasonry, several appendant, affiliated and allied organizations were created over the last 200 years to advance unique elements of the fraternal order.
Men throughout the world further their Masonic affiliation through involvement and continued service to appendant body organizations like Shriners, which have a Masonic membership prerequisite to join and remain in good standing. Many of these organizations have an established partnership with Shriners International.
Through collaborative ventures such as BeAFreeMason.org, appendant body participation in the Shriners International Education Foundation (SIEF) Noble Academy, and work with several advisory committees, Shriners International serves as a fraternal leader committed to the overall growth and development of the Masonic family of members and organizations.
Some of our partners include:
Shriners International also partners with numerous organizations that are open to Shriners’ spouses, widows and female relatives of Shriners and Masons.
Shriners International partners with several organizations related to Freemasonry which instill values in children and teenagers throughout their formative years. These include:
