The Dresser Shrine Club was organized in 1994 to support the shrine and raise money for transporting patients to the Shriner’s Hospitals and have fun doing so in parades and appearances.
The Dresser Shrine Club was chartered in 1994 by Potentate Robbie Robertson who is the only honorary member, since then the club has donated approximately $48,000.00 to the Transportation Fund and 100 Million Dollar Fund.
The requirements to join the dressers are: A Shriner in good standing and owning a full dress motorcycle (not restricted to make, model or size).
The dress uniform of the club is: Red jacket, white embroidered shirt, red ascot, black pants, black belt with shrine buckle, black boots, black gloves, and a burgundy helmet. The total cost of the uniform is approximately $300.00.
The dues are $25.00 per year payable on January 1st of each year to the club secretary. The club meets at Tebala Shrine Center at 7:30 P.M. On the 4th
Tuesday of each month, except December and January. The annual meeting is in November.
We make a maximum of ten parades per year. Other appearances include: Hospital Day, garage sale, circus, Vidalia onion sales, ceremonials, Black Hawk Farm, Shrine Convention and whatever else is requested by the Potentate.
Children in the Shrine Hospitals receive medical treatment regardless of ability to pay. There are nineteen orthopedic hospitals and three burn centers in North America. Our motto is “we ride so children may walk”.
If you know of a child in need of treatment you may contact any Shriner.
