The sounds of the Caribbean brought to Boumi
Steel Drum Band
Director Thomas O. Downey
Do the sounds of the Caribbean make you wish you were sitting on a tropical beach? Come out and join the Boumi Steel Drum Band. While you won't be playing backup for Jimmy Buffett, you will be having lots of fun. Even if you don't know how to play, lessons are available.
The Steel Drum Band meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month (except June-Aug.) at 1 p.m. in their unit room.
Bringing smiles to faces of all ages
Director Dave "Buzzy" Wineholt
Clowns are a big part of the shrine presence in parades and parties. They also serve as a great part of our team helping kids treated in the Shriners Hospitals for Children. What is better to the healing process than smiling and laughing?
The Boumi Clowns meet on the 2nd Monday of the month (except Sept) in their unit room at 7:30 p.m.
Captain Wayne Penley
Bagpipes have been used to add a touch of elegence to Masonic and shrine functions for many years. If you have ever thought about learning to play the pipes, contact the captain and learn how to play with the Highlanders.
The Highlanders meet the 1st Saturday of the month at 10:30 a.m.
Fun on 2 (and sometimes 3) wheels!
Captain Billy Thompson
Do you enjoy having fun on two (or three) wheels? The Motor Corps is dedicated to those Shriners who enjoy fellowship and the open road. You also have the opportunity to enhance your riding skills and participate in drill competitions, slow races, obstacle courses and, of course, being the hit of the parades!
You do not need a big, full-dressed Harley-Davidson to join. You just need a love for the open road.
The Motor Corp meets in their unit room on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.
Great music to make our parades, meetings, and events more memorable
Bandmaster Toby Ziegler
Did you play in your high school or college band? The Brass Band has plenty of openings for musicians of every skill level. The band does not march in parades but shares its music from a special Boumi float.
The Brass Band meets every Tuesday of the month for rehearsal. The business meeting is on the 2nd Tuesday of the first month of each quarter (January, April, July, October).
More than a few great men!
Legion of Honor
Commander Peter Phillips
Did you wear the uniform of this great nation? The Legion of Honor is a unit dedicated to honoring our nation's active duty military and veterans. In addition to either marching or riding on a patriotic float in parades, they participate in an annual wreath laying at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier with other Legions from across the nation.
The Legion of Honor meets the 3rd Friday or Saturday of the month (except July/Aug.) and welcome all.
