What does it mean to be a Shriner?

“It means a man who cares about his community. A good Father, Brother, or Son. A good Husband and Friend. A man who loves his family. Values friendship. Embraces life … And always gives back. The Fez is our ancient symbol but the modern man who wears it is a man who makes a difference. Dunn Shriners … Brotherhood, Fun, Philanthropy, and Family.”
