Founded in 1922, the Drum & Bugle Corps is one of the Moslah Shrine Center’s oldest Units. Being a performing Unit, the Drum Corps “displays the Fez” through regular participation in area parades and similar events. In state and (occasionally) national Shrine Competition, the Drum Corps is recognized as a serious competitor second only to the Units reputation as one which “plays” as hard off the competitive floor as it plays in competition.

The Drum Corp provides all musical instrumentation and competition uniforms. No prior musical ability is required of its membership. Instruction is provided for the 2-valve bugle sections (soprano or baritone) and the myriad of percussion instruments including the flags.

The Drum & Bugle Corps serves Moslah Shrine Center through sponsorship of the Camel Herders. The Camel Herders is a “side-degree” organization formed to raise funds to host the Masonic Home and School’s annual, all-sports banquet honoring the home’s student-athletes; and cash gifts for all graduating Seniors.

Personal membership requirements include annual dues of $10.00, assessments of $200.00 (paid quarterly), minimal street uniform requirements, and regular attendance at weekly practices during practice seasons.
