Circus. Our Fezeroo has been running for many years. In 1972 we took our first cheque to Imperial Council as a direct contribution to the Shrine hospitals for Children. It was in the amount of $25,000 and our contributions have continued annually, increasing in size ever since.
In 1962 Imperial council granted Philae Temple jurisdiction over Newfoundland and a portion of Prince Edward Island (the remainder being held by Luxor Temple). Membership over the years fluctuated, cresting in 1981 at 1689 Nobles. During this year, under the leadership of Ill. Past Potentate Len Dixon , Philae temple sponsored Mazol Temple in Newfoundland.Membership had grown in Newfoundland since our first pilgrimage there in 1956 and approximately 300 Nobles then separated to form their new Temple, leaving Philae with a membership of 1336
In 1992, under the leadership of Ill. Past Potentate, Philip Beeler and with the cooperation of Luxor Temple, Imperial council awarded Philae Temple jurisdiction over the entire Province of Prince Edward Island.
Philae Temple has hosted the Northeast Shrine Field Days on three occasions in 1956,1978,and 1994.
Philae Temple’s history continues to be written by the members of the nobility through their continued efforts to promote the fraternity and the philanthropy of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
