The Lakehead Shrine Club operates in Thunder Bay out
of the Masonic Hall on Dease Street across from the Lakehead Conservatory. From 1905 onwards there were many Shriners located
in this area but it wasn't until 33 years later that they organized the Lakehead Shrine Club. The Lakehead Shrine Club received its Charter from Khartum Temple in September 1938. The Shrine Club offers a meeting place for many area men as well as a women’s auxiliary,
the Lakehead Shriner’s Ladies Club.
We raise funds for a number of organizations in town such as George Jeffery Children’s Centre, TBRH Cardiac Care, Masonic CHIP (Child Identification Program), etc. However our main focus is the Shrine Hospitals and the Hospital Transportation Fund.
