The Lady Shriners Club

Most people think of the Shriners as being a fraternal organization (aka men's club), but back towards the end of the 19th century, Detroit Lakes had a Lady Shriners Club. The Becker County Museum's information on this organization is sparse, however, so anyone who might have some old pamphlets or other memorabilia that could help shed some light on this aspect of local history, please contact the museum at 218-847-2938.
