The purpose of the Rag
Top Unit is to participate in all Shrine functions by
order of the Colonel of the Uniformed Units; and/or the consent of
the Potentate of Aleppo Temple.
Vehicles are preferred to be American-made vehicles; however,
convertible vehicles of foreign manufacture will be accepted. The
cars are personally owned and maintained by the individual Unit
members and must meet the standard of the Unit.
The Unit does not provide uniforms. Each member shall provide a
proper uniform consisting of a black tuxedo with red piping (for
the winter months), and a yellow blazer for summer Tours of Duty.
Each member must also procure a jeweled Rag Top Unit fez.
If you are a vehicle
owner, and participate in Shrine Tours of Duty, you must carry a one
million-dollar umbrella insurance rider on your vehicle.
The initiation fee is $25.00, with annual dues of $10.00 per member.
The Unit meets as required for round table discussions and
assignments. The Unit provides transportation for dignitaries, as well
as senior members of other Units who are unable to march.
As a member of the Rag
Unit, you are requested to participate in as many meetings,
fund raisers, social events and Tours of Duty as possible.
