Jamestown Shriners consisting of two units, the Mystics and Clowns, and two clubs, EZ Wheels and James Valley Shrine Club, collectively donated more than $122,000 for 2019 at the recent annual banquet and "Parade to Glory" held in Fargo at the El Zagal Temple.

These Shriners donate the majority of the funds raised throughout the year to Shriners Healthcare for Children and Shriner Transportation Fund, which is money used to support families to and from appointments at hospitals and clinics. Jamestown Shriners donated to local charities and support groups as well. The groups expressed their appreciation to local communities for their continuing support by participating in and attending Shriner events.

Anyone who is interested in becoming a Shriner is asked to speak with a member or go to the website beashrinernow.com.

This news release was corrected to include how the funds support families.
