Our Sisters and Brothers give so much of their time and monetary support to our Masonic Organizations and our communities - to recognize ALL that is done, a form will be sent to our Chapters to report all their volunteer man-hours and financial contributions. At Grand Chapter 2013, we will present the total dollar amount and total volunteer man-hour amount that we, as a Masonic Family, have contributed.
Our Youth Groups (the ABC's - International Order of the Rainbow for Girls Assemblies, Job's Daughters International Bethels, and DeMolay International Chapters.
We encourage your attendance and assistance at their meetings and activities, provide support and encouragement, help to attract new members to join these organizations, give financial assistance, invite them to your Chapter activities and be ready to open doors to them as new members. We need to embrace our young people in any way as we can, as they are OUR future!
Chapters will be asked to report on their participation and those Chapters who get actively involved with a youth group will be recognized at Grand Chapter with a "Shining Star Award."
