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!

In 1872 a group of 13 Freemasons created the fraternity known as the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. In 1922 they began construction on the first Shriners Hospital for Children. Today, the organization is known as Shriners International and there are approximately 400,000 Shriners throughout the world. The Shriners hospital system has grown to 22 hospitals in North America and have become known as the Worlds Greatest Philanthropy.
