All of the Rush Parties start at 6:00 p.m. at the Shrine, and then normally are done by 8:00. We look forward to you bringing potential new Nobles to these Rush Parties so that they can enjoy the great benefits of being a Shriner that we all do.
As our Potentate would say “But for the Shrine” (i) thousands of children would have not received free medical care, or (ii) your network of friends would be significantly smaller, or (iii) the number of activities involving your wife and children would be greatly reduced.
