all Shriners ARE Masons. To join the shrine you have to be a master mason in good standing, so it is not surprising that you would see them associated.

The Shrine is the charitable arm of the fraternity, donating over $700 million dollars each year in the United States and Canada, primarily through the Shrine Hospitals.

The Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine is a fraternal organization founded in the late 19th century by a group of Scottish Rite Masons for the purpose of promoting good fellowship and humor. Originally, membership in the Shriners was limited to those who were 32° Scottish Rite Masons, which could be waived if the candidate was a Masonic Knight Templar in the York Rite.

At the 2000 Sessions of the Imperial Council, the Constitution was amended to allow all regular Master Masons in good standing to join the Shriners, regardless of Scottish Rite or Commandery membership.
