Noble Alex Rauket has been awarded the Potentates Award for his outstanding achievements with Kilometers for kids.
The Bruce Shrine Club had a fun time volunteering with the Port Elgin Rotary’s “Hello Summer Expo“
It was a big event at the Plex in Port Elgin with fun for kids and family during the day and live music in the evening. Nobles and our ladies were able to help out and enjoy the festivities.
The Bruce Shrine Club once again made donations to 5 local hospitals and 3 hospice in our area.
As a Shriners we fundraise to support Shriners Children but every year a portion of monies raised goes to support our local Health Care Providers. It is a thank you to the community that supports our efforts and the local health care system that looks after our members and their loved ones.
The Totals are in and more than $70,000.00 has been donated to Shriners Hospital Montreal through Kilometres for Kids. Thank you Noble Alex Rauket, your amazing team and all shrine clubs across Southern Ontario who made this possible. A special thanks to the Cambridge Shrine Club for their donation of $15,000.00

The Bruce Shrine Club has lost a noble of our club and brother in Masonry with the passing of Joe Ryan. Joe will be sadly missed as he was a great supporter of the BSC. A noble that was always there to help out at a fundraiser and join in the fun at our parades. Joe Ryan was our man in Paisley and very much a of member of the Bruce Shrine Club family.
Joe Ryan, a familiar face at Bruce Shrine Club outings. Missed but not forgotten.
Nobles of the Bruce Shrine Club are saddened by the passing of our 1st vice president Dave McCallum. Bruce District and BSC has lost a very excellent and well known and liked Noble and Mason. Dave’s accomplishments within the Hanover Masonic Lodge and the BSC are too numerable to list here. Suffice it say that both institutions are far better off because of Dave’s hard work and understanding. Dave always met you with a smile and left you with a smile. He will be remembered as a good man and an example of what Mason and Shrine could and should be.
