"All in the Family Gatherings"

Now is the time to gather as a family to learn about our related organizations and help each other grow and prosper. This year, the Pennsylvania Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star will emphasize "Fraternal Relations" and provide opportunities for the Masonic family to learn more about each other.

In an effort to bring all Masonic organizations together as a family, the Order of the Eastern Star is organizing "All in the Family Gatherings" to be held in six locations across the state. All Masonic bodies have been invited to attend, as well as their families and friends.

Highlights of each event will include:
  • Subscription will be $12.00 for ages 7 and older.
  • An ecumenical church service will start at 10 a.m. Each organization will be recognized at the end of the church service.
  • A light lunch will be provided after the church service.
  • Information booths from all organizations will be set up, displaying such items as literature, pictures, scrapbooks, scholarship programs, awards, charitable endeavors and of course, petitions. It will be staffed with members dressed in full Masonic regalia.
  • Demonstrations will be held by the youth organizations.
  • A craft table will be available for you to make a tray favor craft. These favors will be given to the Masonic Villages and Shiners Hospitals.
  • The event will conclude at 3 p.m.

Sisters and Brothers, mark your calendars, fill up your cars with family and friends and join us for a wonderful day of fellowship and learning!

Come to one or more of the events and spend some time with your fraternal family. Only by your participation and enthusiasm can we make each of these events a success.
