The Sheba Shrine Club, Barrie, Ontario, Canada
Shriners come from all walks of life. They represent a cross-section of the various social, economic, educational and spiritual men found in North America today.
Most people identify Shriners as those men who seem to have such a good
time at their conventions and run around in red hats - which are called a
Fez. What most people don't know is that every Shriner must be a member of
the Masonic Fraternity and that the Shriners are the sole
support of 18 Orthopedic Hospitals for Crippled Children and 3 of the
finest Burns Institutes for Children. All medical care for operations,
hospitalization, skin grafts, plastic surgery, etc. is entirely FREE of
cost to the patients and their families. Any child from infancy to 18
years is eligible for treatment. If you know of a child in need of such
care, please contact us or phone (813) 885-2575 or (416) 633-6317.
Patients in the 22 Shrine hospitals are not children of Masons, but rather
children from communities such as yours.
