Packerland Hillbilly Clan 181
2019 Rabban of the Clan: Roy Vander Zanden
If you enjoy the concept of having fun dressed up like a Hillbilly, you should consider joining this fun group. Established at Beja in 2014 under the approval of Ill Sir Nick Brosig, this group of Shriners works together to have fun and raise monies for our Hospitals and local Transportation fund.
The Grand and Glorious Order of the Hillbilly Degree originated as a sideline degree for Shriners to be a fun way to raise funds for Shriners Hospitals for Children. Those who were initiated were accepted into a Hillbilly Clan! From the start, it was accepted as a good way to get both Nobles and their Ladies involved in the fundraising events! Having both a men’s degree and a woman’s degree made the process even more attractive to couples!
To date, $10,500,000 has been donated internationally by Hillbilly Clans to our Shriners Hospitals for Children or local Shrine Transportation funds.
