Shriners International, also commonly known as "the Shriners" and formerly known as the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine (AAONMS), is a Masonic society headquartered in Tampa, Florida. Two Master Masons, Dr. Walter M. Fleming and William J. “Billy” Florence, a well-known actor, founded the AAONMS in 1872. The organization describes itself as "a fraternity defined by fun, fellowship and philanthropy." There are approximately 350,000 members from 196 temples (temples) around the world. The Murat Shrine in Indianapolis, Indiana was chartered in March 1884. The Murat Highlanders Pipe and Drum Band is Indianapolis' oldest Scottish bagpipe and drum corps who "have brought the Shrine message across the world for 70 years as innovative, distinguished and colorful ambassadors for Shrinedom."
