Class Directors

Class Directors work with the new “Nobles” making sure that they are well taken care of during “Shrine Day” a day to be remembered.  The Midian Class Directors are an elite group of dedicated Shrine Masons who serve at the pleasure of the Potentate of Midian Shrine under the supervision of the Ceremonial Director.

Our goal is to make certain every new Noble receives the proper introduction and education into Shrinedom. We meet as necessary to organize and plan activities that support the many charitable aspects of Midian Shrine.  Although we are not an official parade unit, a few of the Class Directors participate in may parades each year in our fully restored and original vehicle’s from the “classic auto” years.  Among the current members of the Class Directors are four Past Worshipful Masters, three Worthy Patrons, one line officer and two lecturers–all of who are active within Blue Lodge, Scottish Rite, Order of the Eastern Star and Shrine activites.

We include our ladies and families in almost all of our social activities because the foundation of Free Masonry is indeed the family unit.

The Class Directors is a small unit in the Shrine with a limit of  20 regular members and 5 auxiliary members.

The yearly dues are set by the members which is a small amount and can be offset by a minimum of $200.00 Circus sales each year for the Class Directors Unit.
