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 various school clubs including the Senate, they called themselves the Triple X (Roman numeral 30 “XXX”). Bringing together Trexmen, along with families and friends, for public service, charitable works, fellowship, and fun. In 1928 the Los Angeles and Golden Gate (San Francisco) Chapters were founded, creating the need for the Grand Chapter.

Orange County Chapter

Our 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 Lodge #794 in Santa Ana, any visiting brothers from other chapters are welcome, and share our history.
