Welcome to ZOR SHRINERS!


This manual has been compiled by Noble Wally Trouten from various sources and is full of basic information that a new Noble needs to know as they get started and advance through their journey in Shrinedom. It is advisable that all elected or appointed Nobles review this manual as well. If you have any questions please ask your first line signer, club/unit president, or a member of the Divan, all would be happy to help answer your questions or get the answer for you. Remember this fraternity is what you put into it! Without your participation, you may miss out on the friendship and bonding that so many of us cherish! We look forward to seeing you at many Shrine events! Once again, welcome!
