You've seen these types of pins before? The shriners actually hand them out? I am amazed. I can't see something like this being sanctioned by the
Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus. In an email sent to me from Supreme Council in regards to a question if you can be a Knight of Columbus
and Freemason at the same time, and they said no.
I know there are Knight-Masons in existence, even in my town. At degree ceremonies and events I occasionally see a Freemason emblem on the vehicle of
one of the participants at a Knights of Columbus event.
Oh yeah I see all these guys at where I work throughout the year and they love to pin us. I have all sorts of pins from them. They are all nice guys
who are very generous and do alot of charity around here.
Most of these guys arent as mysterious as you may think. They all get together for their yearly meetings and go out and have fun and the pins are no
big deal honestly. I was talking to the main guy of the Shriners group and he liked the fact I was interested and knew about who they were. He
actually seemed surprised. We talked for hours about all kinds of things. They will be back in this area later this month but I won't be here so I
will see them in February
I have a few of those pins laying around. When they are in town I wear the pins
The Shriners and The Masons are
really nice. I had a bad experience with KoC at a restaurant I worked at so I don't care for them too much. There was about 100 of them and long
story short they basically walked out on their tabs so I don't care for them as much but not all of them are like this I am sure.
