Where FUN is the name
of the game!!! Ole......
Membership is extended by invitation only. The honor of membership
is open for Shrine Masons having distinguished themselves in service
to their Temple and having associated with others for fun and fellowship.
A Member is known as an Artisan (worker of the temple)
or Coate (co-ah-tay) having the Indian meaning of twin brother.
The Lodge or Temple is known as a Teocalli (tay-oh-cah-lee) which
is the Aztec synonym.
Like Imperial Shrine Associations, Local Teocallis
are grouped by regional associations, and like the Imperial Shrine,
generally controlled by the Supreme Teocalli. The jurisdiction of
the Supreme Teocalli is the See of North America.
One of the common threads passing throughout the disparate
local Teocallis is that of its philanthropy. The philanthropy of
the Order of Quetzalcoatl is to assist and support the Supreme Teocalli
and local Shrine Temples, particularly in the area of transportation
funds for the Shrine Hospitals for Children.
