About the Shriners
Shriners International 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 their 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.
The Nile Shriners first received their charter in 1909. Land for the current Nile Shrine Center was purchased in 1924 and has evolved into what it is today, featuring 3,000 feet of choice waterfront on Lake Ballinger, an 18-hole golf course, a lodge featuring a bar & grill and multiple rooms for private events, multiple warehouses for storage and meeting areas for various clubs, caretaker and groundskeeper quarters, extensive picnic areas and more. The Nile Shriners have been a positive influence in the community for decades, and their units, such as Clowns, Mini Bikes and Oriental Band, continue to bring smiles at local parades.
