For the first time in the history Emirat Shriner's we received the Gold Award for Membership for the second consecutive year. 


This is Shriners International's way to recognize Shrine Centers that have gone above and beyond creating Shriner's and maintaining the Shriner's they have in their Shrine Centers.


To obtain this award it takes a lot of hard work of each and every Noble in Emirat Shriner's not only to seek out Novices but to get the current members in Emirat to pay their dues. 


At the end of the day we have done that as evident by the Gold Award we received. 


But we cannot stop now as a new year has just begun and we have to work on getting new novices and keeping the Nobles that we have so we can win it for the third year in a row. 


The whole Divan would like to say, Job well done!

Dear Nobles and Novices

It is with a great deal of disappointment that we have to send you this letter canceling the Emirat Shrine Europe May Ceremonial in St Leon Rot, Germany on 29 May through 31 May 2020.

We all know what is happening around the world concerning the Corona Virus (COVID-19) and the steps being taken to combat it. Throughout this period of national and international emergency the well-being and safety of our members has been paramount. With the ever growing unpredictability of Corona Virus (COVID-19) and the restrictions placed by the government we feel this is the best course of action to take at this time.

30 May 2020

Because our Spring Ceremonial 2020 was cancelled due to the Covid 19 virus, we decided to have a online Stated Meeting today. 

We had a great and successfull business meeting with almost 100 Nobles who participate.
