The Abdallah Escorts are a motorcycle parade unit. We are not committed to one brand because we view our obligation as representing Abdallah and Shriners Hospital for Children. Since we do not compete as a unit at CSSA, we do not need or want to own matching motorcycles. The Escorts want to associate with like minded people that agree with our philosophy to strive to be the model for all Shrine units. We aspire to be the leading unit in supporting Abdallah and its many needs. We actively support Kansas Shrine Bowl players, the Abdallah Demolition Derby, Shriners Hospitals for Children, Abdallah's general fund, and other Abdallah units in their fundraising efforts. Over the last five years our unit and members have donated more than $10,000.00 to the St. Louis hospital, and with our ladies have sponsored a total of three or more players annually to the Kansas Shrine Bowl. We also co-sponsor the annual Abdallah Kids Christmas Party and Carnival.
In order to implement those goals, we raise funds wherever we can and give it back to Abdallah. Bingo concessions, weddings, golf tournaments, onions and anywhere else we can turn a buck. But we can't do it alone.
Meets: 2nd Wednesday
President: Erik Kittrel
Our success begins and ends with the support of our ladies, More than half of our monthly meetings are joint meetings. We rely on them, as partners, in our every endeavor. They help us plan, organize and implement our many activities. It is common for them to be able to flesh out and enhance our goals or enable us to meet them. We are the most couple oriented group of motorcycle units ever. Several of our members are single males, and we wouldn't trade any one of them.
We also like to enjoy each other with outings, riding together, and supporting one another in and outside of the Shrine. Our Ride Master plans a monthly mystery ride that usually includes a meal. We invite you to join us at a meeting, ride or get together. Making good Shriners better is our main goal.
We meet on the second Wednesday of each month. Our annual dues are $20. The ladies also assess $20 per year for dues. The equipment required for membership
consists of a touring bike, sports touring bike, cruiser or any three wheeled motorcycle.
The parade uniform consists of a teal shirt with embroidery work, khaki pants, black socks, and black shoes. A matching ladies shirt is optional.
