Sue-Ellen Coleman, Grand Worthy Advisor in Pennsylvania Rainbow, led the delegation of young ladies to the biannual session of the Supreme Assembly of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls, held this year in Oklahoma City, Okla., from July 23-26. Rainbow is a service-based sorority for young ladies between the ages of 11 and 21.

Accompanying Coleman on the 18-day bus tour that included stops in Lexington, Ky.; Little Rock, Ark.; San Antonio, Texas; Pensacola, Fla.; Savannah, Ga.; and Washington, D.C., were Grand Officers, Past Grand Officers and Grand Colors. Leandra Logan, Grand Worthy Associate Advisor, represented Pennsylvania and promoted the Order's Masonic ties by dressing as a famous Pennsylvania Mason, Benjamin Franklin, in the costume parade. Nancy Shaw, the Junior Past Grand Worthy Advisor, was the delegation's representative in the Cavalcade of Flags. Angela Eberts, Past Grand Worthy Advisor 2004-2005, served as Acting Supreme Fidelity, along with Katie Burkett, Grand Service, who participated in the Ritualistic Perfection competition; Meredith Potocki, Grand Faith; Katie Campbell, Grand Recorder; and Andrea Stanley, Grand Immortality.

These girls enjoyed many fun, educational and fraternal stops before and after the sessions. They included visits to the Kentucky National Horse Park, the Alamo, Six Flags, a cotton plantation, mining for diamonds, a barbecue with Rainbow Girls in Georgia, a tour of the Rainbow International Supreme Temple and a visit to the grave of Rainbow's founder, the Rev. W. Mark Sexton, who was a Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge in Oklahoma. The girls even found some time to spend on the beach! The eventful trip concluded with a tour of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial in Alexandria, Va.

The adult leaders on the trip included Mrs. Beryl L. Hogue, Supreme Inspector in Pennsylvania Rainbow; Mrs. Hedi Tacus; Mrs. Pamela Wenrich; Mrs. Edith Logan; Miss Nancy Horn; and Ms. Debra Kehr.
