Shriners

The Shriners is a society established in 1870 and is headquartered in Tampa, Florida, USA. It is an appendant body to Freemasonry. Shriners wear the Fez as a mark of their membership in the same way that a Master Mason wears the white lambskin. Before a man can become a Shriner, he must become a Freemason. In fact, if you look carefully at the full name — Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine — you can rearrange the letters A.A.O.N.M.S. and spell “A MASON.” All Shriners are Freemasons, but not all Freemasons become Shriners.
