Triple X Fraternity

The Triple X Fraternity organization has a long history as a non-political, non-religious, Fraternity of Armenian Brothers. Formed in 1918 by a group of young Armenian students at Fresno High School, who were tired of being restricted from participating in other clubs. Calling themselves the Triple X, choosing the Roman numeral 30 “XXX”, for both name and group size for recruitment purposes. Bringing together Trexmen, along with families and friends, for public service, charitable works, fellowship, and fun.

Orange County Chapter

The Orange County Chapter was founded August 31, 1975, in Newport Beach, by seven Los Angeles Chapter Brothers, all of whom held office the first year. Starting with thirty-six members we have grown to over eighty members dedicated to fraternalism, brotherhood, and service. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month, at the Elks #794 in Santa Ana.
