Thought I would share....."info nerd sorry" History of the Shrine, The Beginning In 1870 a group of Masons gathered frequently for lunch at the Knickerbocker Cottage on Sixth Avenue in New York City. At a special table on the second floor a particularly fun-loving group of men met regularly. Among the regulars were Walter M. Fleming, M.D. and William J. “Billy” Florence, an actor. The group frequently talked about starting a new fraternity for Masons – one centered on fun and fellowship, more than ritual. Fleming and Florence took this idea seriously enough to do something about it. Billy Florence had been on tour in France, and had been invited to a party given by an Arabian diplomat. The exotic style, flavors and music of the Arabian-themed party inspired him to suggest this as a theme for the new fraternity. Walter Fleming, a devoted fraternity brother, built on Fleming’s ideas and used his knowledge of fraternal ritual to transform the Arabian theme into the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (A.A.O.N.M.S.). With the help of the Knickerbocker Cottage regulars, Fleming drafted the ritual, designed the emblem and costumes, formulated a salutation and declared that members would wear the red fez. The first meeting of Mecca Shriners, the first temple (chapter) established in the United States, was held September 26, 1872.
Tangier Shrine's May stated meeting is Thursday May 12th. Please RSVP with the office and come enjoy dinner and the evening at the Shrine.

It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of Brother Jack V. Schram. Jack was the Tangier Shrine Circus Chairman for many years. He was a member of Shiloh Lodge #327. Jack was also a member of the Scottish Rite Omaha, 32deg KCCH. His upbeat and positive spirit, along with his good humor will be greatly missed by all who knew him. A memorial service will be held on Friday, May 13 at 3pm at Roeder Mortuary at 2727 N. 108th Street (just south of 108th & Maple). A Celebration of Life gathering will be held at Tangier Shrine at a later date. Please keep Jack's wife Judy in your thoughts and prayers.
