"To preserve the reputation of the Fraternity unsullied must be your constant care."

“The Masonic system represents a stupendous and beautiful fabric, founded on universal purity, to rule and direct our passions, to have faith and love in God, and charity toward man.”

Little Rock Shrine Collecting Supplies For Tornado Victims

Little Rock's Scimitar Shrine Center is acting as a collection point for donated goods for the citizens of Mena, Arkansas who were struck by the tornado Thursday night.

Noble Tony Francis is the contact at the Shrine Center, which is located off of I-30 and S. University on the service road in Little Rock. The number to the office is 501-565-5992.

  1. Some further information:

    The Potentate of the Scimitar Shrine told me over the phone that they are particularly in need of non-perishable food items and toiletries. (They got a lot of clothes in on Saturday.) He anticipates collecting items over the next week or two. These items may be sent directly to this address:

    LITTLE ROCK AR 72209-3732

    I'm sure that the many brothers who have prayed for the good people of Mena will appreciate Chris' giving us information to add material support to our prayers.

Anonymous postings on Masonic topics have the same status as cowans and eavesdroppers as far as I am concerned, and may be deleted if I don't recognize you or if I'm in a grumpy mood.
