Kena Motor Patrol Club
Clubs & Units at Kena Shriners
In every Shriner Temple the Clubs and Units are the backbone of our fraternity, in countless places, both near and afar, they march, play, sing, ride, and romp bringing joy and pleasure to the young and to the old. They have served in every job imaginable at hundreds of Temple activities and events. We salute the men in the red, green and gold, and all other colors including the black tuxedo. You continually bring honor to your Temple and credit to yourselves.
Shriners doing what they do best; having fun!
The Clubs and Units are where the fun and excitement happen. They participate in parades, hold fundraisers to bring awareness to their cause, and raise money for the Shriners and Hospitals.

Kena Shrine Legion of Honor Unit
The Legion of Honor (LOH) is the veterans' unit of the Shrine. To be eligible for membership one has had to have served honorably in the armed forces. We are a marching unit and support the temple for all parades and various other temple functions. The Legion of Honor participates in competitive color guard competition with other temples. Every branch of the service, U.S. Coast Guard included, and every war Since World War II is represented in the Kena LOH membership. We are not all work and no play. We have an Oktoberfest and our members are often present for many other temple, club, and unit social functions.
On Veterans' Day (November 11) the Kena Legion of Honor joins with other temple Legions of Honor throughout Shrinedom to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns, Arlington National Cemetery. This ceremony is also open to the ladies and the Imperial Potentate normally attends. To be present with such a large gathering of Shriners from so many temples at this ceremony is a moving experience.
The Legion of Honor meets on the third Monday of the month at 7:30 PM.
