In early 2006, several Active Master Masons, Past Masters of several lodges and Shriners agreed to meet because they were seeking to find an avenue to have fun family activities outside of the lodge but still support a worthwhile cause, the Shriner’s Hospital for Children.
After several months of organizational meetings and diligent work by the brethren, the Nobility respectfully submitted a formal request to the office of Al Malaikah Shriners for dispensation in June 2006. On July 17, 2006, Illustrious Sir, Glen D. Christensen and the Divan under the Jurisdiction of Al Malaikah Shriners granted and issued the Charter to the Acacia Shrine Club. The Shrine Club originally started with 32 charter members.
The Acacia members have enjoyed and participated in many Temple (Circus, Ceremonials Purveyors, Novice Committee) and Imperial activities (Imperial Session parades in 2006 and 2007)
The Shrine Club is based out of Torrance, CA and meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.
