Welcome to the El Bekal Director's Staff Inner Sanctum
The Director's Staff is a Unit of El Bekal Shrine, and as such, has certain assigned duties and responsibilities to meet. The Unit constructs, maintains, handles and sets up the stage for the Ceremonials and Stated Meetings, and provides sound and lighting support for the Ceremonial rituals. Members of the Unit also participate in construction activities in the Shrine building, modifying, renovating and maintaining the building for meeting it's various needs.
Any Noble in the construction field, do-it-yourselfers, sound and lighting buffs, stagecraft hands, mechanics, and any others interested in technical accomplishments would fit in very well in the Director's Staff Unit. We work at the Center on Saturday mornings between 8:30am and 12:00noon unless a Shrine event (parade, circus, ceremonial, etc.) is taking place.
The Unit participates in parades with their calliope and float; no marching is required. White trousers, short sleeve white shirt with embroidered emblem on back and fez; all provided by the member. We have dinner meetings, with wives, on the third Wednesday of each month. In addition, there are special parties, picnics, hospitality rooms, trips, and other events from time to time as the members elect to have.
The Unit provides an opportunity to take pride in applying your productive skills to Shrine benefit, opportunity to learn new skills, and an opportunity to fraternize with a friendly and fun-loving group of Shriners. If you would like to join us, there is NO initiation Fee. The Annual Dues are only $30.00 prorated when you join. Call the Shrine office for the phone number of an Officer. Or, simply show up on Saturday morning and join in on the activities.
