This year Shriners Imperial Session for 2019 is happy to announce the Six-time Vocal Group of the Year, Diamond Rio as the representative’s evening entertainment. You may remember some of their greatest hits like “How Your Love Makes Me Feel", "Walkin' Away" and "Beautiful Mess"
Part of the fun of being a Shriner Unit or Club are the competitions with your counterparts from across the country. It gives you a chance to show off your talent and skill to Shriners from around the world.
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.
Imperial Session is the official business session of Shriners International. During this time, representatives vote on the official business of Shriners International and Shriners Hospitals for Children and committee chairmen give reports.

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.
