A STREETWISE column from 2013 gave some background on the Shriners and on Masonic Lodges: http://www.outsidelands.org/streetwise-50-years.php
**scroll down to the section on "Scottish Rite Masonic Center".

Interestingly, the group reports more than 60,000 members in 340 lodges in California, with 2,000 new members added each year--average age, 39. Of course, with California's population now approaching nearly 40 million, the group's presence is not felt as much as in the past.
