Shriners International Awareness Day
Thursday, June 6th
Shriners everywhere should mark their calendars and make plans to participate in Shriners International Awareness Day on June 6. The date recognizes the day the Imperial Council was formed – June 6, 1876.
On this day every year, Shriners are asked to wear their fez, if appropriate, or hat, shirt, pin or other item with the fraternal logo to help recognize fellow Shriners and increase awareness of Shriners International.
We encourage Shriners everywhere to organize events at their temples or in their local communities and to invite the public to participate, in order to increase awareness about the local temple or Shriners International. Other suggestions include posting information about Shriners International Awareness Day on your temple websites and in your temple calendars, publications and electronic communications. Be sure that each and every noble knows about Shriners International Awareness Day and encourage them to participate.
The day of recognition is an opportunity for every Shriner to share information about the fraternity, its history and the benefits of becoming part of an organization that is dedicated to fun, fellowship and philanthropic support.
