easternstar(Meets 2nd & 4th Thursday at 7:30pm; except 2nd Thurs in Aug and 4th Thurs in July, Oct, Nov, Dec)


We were honored to have our Orange DeMolay boys present the Flower Talk at our meeting on May 14th to our members and guests. That evening we also had Brothers Night, where we invite brothers who are normally not officers to fill in all of the offices that can be filled by men. In Eastern Star we have 18 officers and half (9) of them can be filled by men; 2 have to be men and 7 can be either men or women. Sean Womack, our Associate Patron was in charge of selecting the brothers to fill the stations. It was a fun evening.

At our May 28th meeting we paid tribute to 15 of our members who had passed away during the year. We have a special ceremony that we perform every year at our meeting closest to Memorial Day. We also balloted that evening on a member of Orange Grove Lodge and his wife to join our Eastern Star Chapter. We are very excited that they will be initiated on Thursday, June 11th at 7:30pm. If you are a member of Eastern Star, we’d love to have you join us for their initiation and I know it would mean a lot to them also if you could attend to support them.

Have you been thinking about joining Eastern Star? Gentlemen you can join us if you are a Master Mason, and your wives are also eligible. Other ladies can join us if they meet certain Masonic relationship requirements or belonged to Job’s Daughters or Rainbow for Girls. If you’d like more information, please contact us, or any of our officers. We’d love to have you join us!
