Mission: Omar Temple No. 21, AEAONMS is primarily a benevolent, charitable and fraternal organization. Its membership and Omar Court No. 91, its women's auxiliary, is dedicated to the principle of fostering civic, economic and educational development programs throughout the Coastal Empire. As Shriners, we look beyond ourselves to serve the needs of others, especially children who cannot help themselves. We covenant with each other to support our "temple of mercy" with spirit, time, talent and means. Our programs of work are clearly defined and we accept the challenge to provide assistance with our three community-based initiatives: National Diabetes Initiative, Shriners as Mentors, Educational Scholarships.
