Shriners believe that man was created to serve and help one another. We believe that the care for the less fortunate, especially children who suffer from burns and other crippling diseases, is our institutional calling.
One of the things we, as Shriners, are most proud of is our ability, through Shriners Hospsitals for Children, is to give world-class, expert medical care at NO CHARGE. We believe Shriners hospitals to be the "Worlds' Greatest Philanthropy", and we covenant with each other to support its "temples of Mercy" with spirit, time, talent and means.
KEM Shriners is a growing and vibrant fraternity. Dennis Peterson our Membership Chairman and his committee has set goals and a quota for each Club or Unit. We are asking that each Club or Unit meet their goal and achieve growth for the ninth year for KEM. This is a challenge that KEM SHRINE welcomes and with our success in the past eight years, we need to make each future year another success. New members are vital to Shrinedoms very existence. They are our Shrine Center's continued life and action.
