In early 2006, several Master Masons, Past Masters of several lodges and Shriners met and were seeking to find an avenue to meet, have fun activities outside of the lodge activities but still support a worthwhile cause.
After a year of several organizational meetings and diligent work by the brethren, the Nobility respectfully submitted a formal request for dispensation. On July 17, 2006, Illustrious Sir, Glen D. Christensen and the Divan under the Jurisdiction of Al Malaikah Shriners 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 Thursday of each month.
