Scott County Shrine Club
Civic Clubs & Non Profit Organizations
The Scott County Shrine Club was founded with a sense of purpose to aid in the education, care and growth of children in Scott County. Over the years, this dedication has not changed, but our service area has grown. With the decline in membership in Greeley, Wichita, Lane and Ness Counties, these clubs have been joined with the Scott County Shrine Club to create a club with a sizable geographic footprint. Our service area now encompasses all of these five (5) counties and the cities involved. Although our largest number of members reside in Scott County, we have members in several counties, and our Board of Directors have members from three (3) counties.
The Scott County Shrine Club is a fraternal, philanthropic organization. To be a Shriner, a person must first be a third degree Mason, and then be accepted into the Shrine fraternity. The Shrine organization is championed by the 22 Shrine Hospitals internationally. These hospitals provide free medical care to youth under the age of 18, in areas of orthopedics, burns, spinal cord injuries, cleft lip and palate, and more. The advanced care provided is family-centered while focusing on maximizing the child's quality of life, regardless of the families ability to pay.
