Units exist within the Shrine to allow Shriners to have more activities to get involved in.
Each of these units serves a different purpose and all have many things to offer.
Please visit each of their webpages and see what they do by clicking on their logo.
The Arab Patrol is Orak Shrine's proud marching unit! We are the oldest unit at Orak; our Patrol was founded in 1910. The Arab Patrol participates in many local parades throughout the year. We also display our marching skills in both competitive and non-competitive drill performances. During these parades and drill routines we execute a variety of marching maneuvers to both please the crowd and, of course, to have a good time! As a unit, the Patrol also hosts several non-marching related events throughout the year. During these events, we look forward to one thing. Good, old-fashioned family fun!
The clowns need little explanation as to their function. This group keeps busy throughout the year performing for many groups and organizations. Their biggest joy comes from entertaining the children during the circus. You will see them all over the Coliseum entertaining young and old alike. They do enjoy putting on the grease paint and doing their thing.
