The Downriver Shrine Club was chartered in 1944. Our Club was the initial Shriners’ Club in the Downriver area and is still going strong today.
Our Club has nearly 90 members and has maintained a high achievement when collecting for the Hospital Fund Raiser or Paper Drive by being one of the top three collectors over the past three years.
Our Club is governed by the elected officers consisting of the President, three Vice Presidents, Secretary/Treasurer, Child Care Chairman and the Immediate Past President of the Board, and a 6 member Board of Directors.
New and old members are always welcome.
Membership in the Downriver Shrine Club is available to any member of Moslem Shrine Temple in good standing and that assumes your membership in the Blue Lodge is in good standing as well. There are no other requirements.
There is no initiation fee other than the first year dues to join our Club. Annual dues are $10.00.
There is no probationary period.
Meetings are 3rd Thursday of every month at 7pm located at the Trenton Temple 2550 W. Jefferson, Trenton. Downriver Shrine Club has 3 dinners: Ham Bingo, Steak Fry, and Turkey Bingo. For dinner reservations call 734.281.8083.
Our Club has numerous activities planned, which keeps us quite active during the year. In June, we participate in Moslem Shrine’s annual Hospital Fund Drive to raise money for the Transportation Fund. In July, we host an annual summer “All Orders” picnic in association with the Orders residing at the Trenton Masonic Temple, which is free to the membership and their families with a variety of family friendly games and activities. In October, we sponsor a Roller Skating Halloween Costume Party for our sponsored children in cooperation with the owners of the Lincoln Park Roller Skating Arena. In December, we host a Children’s Christmas Party with Santa and gifts for our sponsored children that attend at no cost to the sponsored children or their families.
