members which is best known for supporting the Shriners Hospitals for
Children, a network of 22 hospitals that provide the highest quality care and
services regardless of the patients’ or their families’ ability to pay.
The organization is committed to providing quality programs and
services for its members, their families and friends in a spirit of fun,
fellowship and social camaraderie.
In addition to member programs, the Tebala Shrine in Rockford
organizes a number of community activities each year. These include the Shrine
Circus in early summer, the Blackhawk Farms Vintage Classic in June, Jimmy
Buffet Party, and the
Karnival of Karnage haunted house in October.
As part of its mission, the Tebala Shrine in Rockford also
provides financial underwriting and other support to children from the community
who qualify for treatment at Shriners Hospitals. A screening clinic will be held
at the Tebala Temple building on September 29th for children (young people who
have not yet attained the age of 18) seeking to qualify for treatment at
Shriners Hospitals for Children. There is no charge for the clinic.
