The first Court of the Ladies’ Oriental Shrine of North America (LOSNA) was founded in Wheeling, WV in 1903. Soon, more Courts would be formed across North America, all continuing to support the Nobles with their Shrine activities but also conducting their own affairs, all for the benefit of the children of Shriner's Medical Centers. The Ladies' Oriental Shrine of North America is it's own distinct order and functions under the leadership of our Grand Council.
Jobel Court No. 11 was instituted on October 19, 1920. The year 2020 marks 100 years that Jobel Court has been in service in Altoona, Pa.
We meet the 2nd Thursday of each month, except July and August at the Jaffa Shrine Center in Altoona, PA. We work on various projects to support the Shrine Medical Centers specifically the Centers in Erie and Philadelphia, PA and Cincinnati, OH. We have several fun and interesting fundraisers through the year that includes homemade peanut brittle and apple dumplings, a basket bingo and several others. Do you have ideas? Why not join us and share your ideas?
Jobel Court No. 11 has a parade unit, The Jobel Jewlz and a lady clown unit, The Jovial Jobel Jokesters.
