Our club was formed in 1961 by a group of Hendersonville-area Nobles with the guidance and encouragement from the Nobles of the nearby Transylvania Shrine Club in Brevard, North Carolina. A Charter sanctioning the Club was received from the Oasis Temple in Charlotte that same year.
These pioneers met to bond personal and fraternal relationships and to map future Shrine activities in the community. Membership grew steadily under the leadership of the club’s first president, the late Noble Jack M. Davies, who served five terms. The first ten years were ones of development and expanding horizons.
By 1985, membership had more than doubled to 278 and new programs and events were added to the calendar. A directory and a newsletter were published to inform the membership of upcoming events. These communication steps fostered even greater interest in the Club.
Our Club’s 30th anniversary in 1991, marked membership at more than 300, and by 1994 membership grew to over 400. We attribute this growth to the meaningful programs, the unique caliber of men who became members, and the dedication and spirit of outstanding Nobles who actively supported the goals of Shrinedom.
We believe in fun with a purpose, and our members build lifelong friendships through service to the beautiful children in our community who receive life-changing surgeries and rehabilitative treatments.
