What are Units?
Units are internal organizations made up of members of Zembo Shriners who share an interest in a particular hobby or activity.
Many units are considered “uniformed” in that they provide for a standardized appearance of members in public, such as while on parade, assisting with an event (such as the Farm Show or Shriners Circus), or simply when providing help at Shrine functions. Most units maintain a Unit Room, or headquarters, at the Zembo Shrine building in Harrisburg.
Units offer our members a chance to enhance their experience and better support our organization’s philanthropies. Whether you’re interested in parade patrol, classic cars, distributing Christmas gifts, or transporting patients to Shriner Hospitals, there’s a unit for every Shriner.
If you don’t see one that you are interested in, call us and we will help you start one!
Would you like members of Zembo Shrine or its Units to participate in your community event or parade?
All requests for public appearances are handled by the Colonel of Units. Click here for more information!
