We March so Children Can Walk!

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!
