Welcome to the El Bekal Greeters Page
The Greeters are a Unit of El Bekal Shrine originally chartered in 1951. Among the Greeters' responsibilities are welcoming visitors, dignitaries, and the General Nobility to Shrine functions, and act at the will and pleasure of the Potentate. The Greeters participate in all official Shrine functions including marching in parades. Historically, at Ceremonials the Potentate has requested the Greeters to robe the candidates and conduct them on a portion of their journey to Mecca.
Monthly meetings enhance Unit camaraderie. In addition, there are several social functions and weekend outings throughout the year. The Greeters' ladies have always been an important part of and valuable asset to the Unit's success.
The Greeters have two "uniforms" - a fatigue outfit consisting of a red shirt with the Greeter logo embroidered on the back and the member's name on the front. This is worn with white pants and shoes. The formal wear is a tuxedo jacket made of the Royal Stewart Tartan and worn with traditional formal attire.
Tne Initiation Fee is $35.00. which includes lettering in the Fez. Members purchase their uniforms. Annual Dues are $35.00.
