Imperial Session Parade


Every time there’s a parade in nearly any town, folks expect to see a contingent of Shriners, either driving tiny cars or the clowns with their big smiles and funny makeup. The parade will usually consist of a bunch of middle-aged, undeniably old guys wearing fezzes in some sort of modified vehicle, on horseback, marching in a band, or whatever they can think of to make a child smile. All the while they are looking cheerfully ridiculous.  All told, they’re having one heck of a good time doing what they love most, and 2019 Imperial Session will be no different it is after all  the biggest Shriner parade of the year.

About the First Lady's Program — Little POPS of Love™ 

Patsy Cain, First Lady of Shriners International, knows firsthand the difference access to quality orthotics can make. Her in-laws, the parents of Imperial Potentate Jim Cain, both had polio and lived bravely and admirably with the aftereffects of the virus. Had today’s braces and other devices been available to them, their lives may have been easier.
