Our membership is comprised of Master Masons with a desire to be more active in the local community in regards to charity. After having realised that our common charitable focus was on helping children within our community, what better way to do this than through such a wonderful philanthropic organisation as Shriners?
Shriners Victoria was founded at its inception meeting held on 24th April 2010, with more than twenty Master Masons indicating their desire to be a part of this wonderful philanthropic organisation. Shriners Australasia was founded in NSW in November 2009 and discussions with their President in January this year have led to our establishment in Victoria. In July 2010 Shriners Victoria will be launching [V] Shriners - it's very own "Volunteer of Shriners" program, embracing the wider community in our charitable deeds and events
