Shriners 140th Anniversary
The 140th Anniversary of Shriners International is quickly approaching in 2012, and we are making preparations to showcase the rich history of our cherished fraternity. We need your help, not only to make this upcoming anniversary celebration a success, but also to preserve the history of our organization.
Shriners International is in search of historic Shriner photographs to help promote our anniversary year. We encourage you to explore your temple’s archives, storage room or even the attic of your home to see what treasures you might discover. Our greatest need is for photos from 1872 – 1962.
We prefer that you send your photographs electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a large number of photos, please be sure to email them in a compressed folder. If you choose to physically mail your photos, send them to Shriners International Headquarters, Attention: Amanda Flenghi, 2900 Rocky Point Drive, Tampa, FL 33607. Please note that we will not be able to return physical photos to you. By emailing or sending us photographs, you acknowledge that you or your temple are the owner and that you consent to the reproduction or use of the images by Shriners International Headquarters.
We thank you in advance for sharing your historic photographs with us. We appreciate your interest in preserving memories and helping us tell the story of Shriners International.
Yours in faith,
JACK H. JONES,Imperial Recorder,Executive Vice President Shriners International
