Given the large geographic area covered by the Tunis Shriners chapter, there are five regional social clubs that allow our members to meet locally.

Within Tunis Shriners, there are twelve sub-units in which members can participate in. They are most commonly known for their unique and fun parade costumes and their commitment to helping kids in need through charity work and fundraising.
