The Tunis Shrine No. 179 was founded in 1975, by a noble and honorable group of Masons dedicated to the idea that Masonry could be enjoyable and fun. Devoted to ideals of benevolence and charity, like other such Shrines across North America and even the world, they set out to meet the challenges of creating such a dream affectionately known as a Shrine. And so the story goes on even now after more then 40 years, to discover that the Tunis Shrine No. 179 as met with level heads and with meek hearts all of the challenges encountered along the journey. Still today they carry the torch as a light and beacon for others to follow in their footsteps, imitate their example, and heed the call, especially for those children who truly need their assistance and love.
