Shrine International has been exceptionally generous to DeMolay and this will be a great chance to tour the International Shrine Headquarters and the Tampa Shrine Hospital.  This will be a great Photo-Op for publicity for both Shrine and DeMolay.

The Tampa Shrine Hospital has provided a list of items that they can use, and that list is attached. Please try to bring several of the items on the list. It would be nice if everyone attending could bring 1 item.

We will tour the Shrine HQ and all meet together, Then we will break into 2 groups:

1)   The Advisors/Adults will meet with the GM or Grand Line member and/or Executive Director
