INFORMATON about the Shriners
The Shriners of North America is a fraternity that grew out of Freemasonry over a century ago. Because of this, the Shrine is dedicated to Masonic principles.
The Shrine fraternity provides to Masonic brothers a means to widen the fellowship first enjoyed in the Masonic Lodge.
The Shrine offers men, their ladies and their families an opportunity to meet new friends who have similar interests, tastes and feelings.

Because Shriners are men who enjoy life, fun is a large part of the Shrine. Shriners, along with their ladies, their families and friends, have many opportunities to enjoy the fun the Shrine has to offer. Activities such as football games, parades, dances, circuses, and parties offer something for every member of your family. Many of these fun activities help support the Shrine's philanthropy ...
Since the first Shriners Hospital opened in 1922, The Shrine has supported 22 Children's Hospitals throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. The annual budget for the hospitals in 2000 was over 500 million dollars. It has become known as the "Worlds Greatest Philanthropy".
The best known symbol of the Shrine is the red fez that Shriners wear to official functions. Most Shrine Centers sponsor Shrine Clubs and special units, such as the motorcycle and mini-bike patrol, Band and Oriental Band, clown units and many other units of special interest. They share in the camaraderie, deep friendships and good fellowship that are all part of being a Shriner.

This beautiful region of Washington State, nestled between Puget Sound to the east and the Olympic Mountains to the west, abounds with natural beauty and outdoor recreation opportunities including: a growing network of bike trails, mountain climbing, fishing, hunting, camping, boating, marinas, outdoor theaters, sports fields, and numerous golf courses.
Kitsap County is the home of five Navy bases: Naval Base Kitsap, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Submarine Base Bangor, Naval Hospital Bremerton, and Naval Undersea Warfare Center at Keyport. Accordingly, many of the Masons and Shriners in the area have a military background. There are twelve Masonic temples in the region where Shriners can join in Masonic fellowship.
The Shriners in our club are a fun group and meet regularly for dinners, and are involved in parades, Shrine Hospital charity work, and community service. Information relative to Kitsap Peninsula Shrine Club events, schedules, membership, and history can be accessed via the drop-down menus above.
