The Potentate’s Message
Hello and welcome to the Rajah Shrine Website.
I am extremely pleased to have you stop and see what events,
functions and exciting news we have to show you here at the
home of Shriners in Eastern Pennsylvania.
During the year we have several events that take place
throughout our 10 county jurisdiction and many of them
provide the public an opportunity to be a part of the fun and
excitement of being a Shriner.
Some of these events include: concerts and performances by
our Concert Band, Dance Band and the German Band; the
Chanters (men's choral group), the Car Club Car Show, Sock Hop,
Provost Guard Spaghetti Dinner, Carbon County Club Car Show,
the Rajah Divan Ladies put on both a BINGO and a Jewelry and
Fashion Show, Good Friday Breakfast, Concert Band Dinner and
Dance, Golf Outings, Noble Riders' Motorcycle Club Poker Run,
several Caravaner (RV) Campouts, Potentate's Trips and the
social highlight of the year - Potentate's Ball and much, much
more, including the weekly Thursday night BINGO.
We are proud to have over 30 Units and Clubs with a variety of
activities and interests to please almost anyone looking for a
great way to have fun and support a very worthwhile fraternity.
The most worthwhile experience you will have as a Shriner, is
the way we contribute our time, talents and means to work
together to benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children, known
as the Greatest Philanthropy in the World. Shriners International
has 22 facilities in the United States, Canada, and Mexico that we
support wholeheartedly in many different ways. These hospitals
specialize in orthopeadic conditions, burns, spinal chord injuries,
and cleft lip and palate regardless of the families' ability to pay.
Being a Shriner is not just belonging to another organization,
but it is a way of giving back to our community by your
involvement in a family oriented way that is inclusive of people
from all walks of life.
Should you like to know more about being a Shriner and to learn
what the benefits of membership include or to obtain information
about any of functions, please contact me or our Recorder at the
Administrative Office. 610-916-9000
