The Calliope Corps. Had the opportunity to participate in the Haunted House this year. The locomotive was used to pull a trailer that took our guests on a Haunted Hayride. We were assisted by the Cyclowns Unit who were lurking around the corners and behind the trees to give everyone a good scare. Fun was had by everyone.

This month the Calliope Corps. members will be preparing and delivering a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner for the Shut-ins and Widows of Washington Lodge #46. They will be treated to a delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings, and let’s not forget the pumpkin pie for dessert.

A big reminder: The Calliope Corps Members and our Ladies will be hosting the “Last Chance” Holiday Bazaar on Dec. 3rd and 4th, at the Shrine Center. The time will be 10am – 4pm on both days. We have many unique home crafters and wonderful direct sales consultants with some great products. Please come do some holiday shopping and support the Calliope Corps. There will be raffle items, a snack bar and don’t forget your camera for “Selfies with Santa”. Mark your calendars and don’t forget to share this event with your family and friends.

Our unit meets the third Saturday of each month at 9:30 am at Elmer’s Restaurant, on 82nd Dr., in Clackamas. If you are interested in learning more about the Calliope Corps please join us for our meeting or call one of our members.

We want to wish everyone a Blessed Thanksgiving.

Al Kader Shriners Unit - Colliope Corps

We still have vendor space available so if you’re interested in renting a table for the weekend the cost is just a mere $20.00. For each $20.00 table rental we will donate $10.00 to the Al Kader Transportation Fund. If you would like to rent a space contact Lady Patti at rpmtori@comcast.net.

It’s been a busy parade season for the Calliope Corps. Fall is here and time to slow down. During our down time we will be doing maintenance on the locomotive and calliopes so that they are all ready for spring and the 2017 parade season.

Did you know that Al Kader Shrine has a Calliope Corps?

The purpose of the Calliope Corps is to provide the calliope at various Shrine functions, activities and parades as authorized by the Al Kader Shrine Potentate.

The Calliope Corps has three pieces of equipment. A locomotive, a large calliope (which is pulled by the locomotive), and a smaller two person calliope. Each piece is brightly decorated, is lit up for night time events and is able to play music. You may have seen one or all three participating in Shrine events.

This year the Calliope Corps members have participated in parades in Tillamook, Sheridan, Newberg, Molalla, Troutdale and many other Oregon communities. We have been asked to have our calliope in Canby for the Canby First Friday events. Our members always enjoy representing the Shrine in the Starlight Parade each year and had the pleasure of teaming up with the Hospital club by pulling their float through this year’s parade. Most recently we had the pleasure of taking the locomotive and large calliope to Baker City for the East-West Parade. We love all of the waves, cheers and smiles (from both young and not so young) as we travel each parade route.

Our unit meets the third Saturday of each month at 9:30 am at Elmer’s Restaurant in Clackamas. If you are interested in learning more about the Calliope Corps please join us for our meeting or call one of our members.
