Dear Rainbow Friends and Family, 

Welcome to our Installation everyone. This is my fourth term as Worthy Advisor, and last as a Rainbow girl, as I will be getting my majority this summer. I am excited to get to share this with you all.

Some of my selections are horses, which I have loved since I was little, roses, and quotes and a bible verse about courage. I believe courage is very important especially to our young girls in facing life situations.

I chose The Ronald McDonald House and Veteran’s Hospital here in Louisville as my service projects. The Ronald McDonald House is a place where families of sick kids can stay when they are from out of town while their child is receiving care at our local hospitals. During my term I plan on having everyone collect can pull tabs to donate to them, and some of their wish list items which are cleaning supplies, kitchen supplies, snacks, drinks, etc. For the veterans hospital we can also collect some bathroom supplies and make Fourth of July cards for them.

I would like to give a special thank you to my Rainbow Sisters, Installing Officers, Board Members, Assistant Mother Advisor and Mother Advisor, my mom. Without you all none of this would be possible. I would also like to encourage our guests to attend as many events or meetings with us that they can. 

In Rainbow Love,

About The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls
               

The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls is an organization for girls between the ages of 11 and 20. At the age of 20, or upon marriage, which ever occurs first, girls who are members in good standing are eligible for Majority Membership. To join, girl must be sponsored by two other girls who are either active members in good standing or a majority member, and at least one adult whom must be a member in good standing of either the Masonic Lodge, Order of the Eastern Star, Order of the Amaranth or the White Shrine. Members of the Order of the Rainbow for Girls participate in many charitable and civic service projects with in their city and state.

The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls was established in McAlester, Oklahoma in 1922. The very inception and writing of the first Ritual, and the laws governing the Order, was the work of W. Mark Sexson, a 33rd Degree Mason and pastor of the First Christian Church in McAlester, Oklahoma.

Lorraine Assembly # 6 International Order of the Rainbow for Girls is sponsored by Suburban Lodge # 740 Free and Accepted Masons and Southern Star Chapter # 154 Order of the Eastern Star. Members from both organizations serve on the Adult Advisory Board of Lorraine Assembly, these advisors oversee the activities and chaperone all functions and trips.

The members of Lorraine Assembly # 6 are involved in many activities throughout the year, such as preparing fruit baskets for lodge widows, care packages for the Veterans Hospital and Kosair Hospital, and charities such as The Special Olympics and the American Diabetes Foundation. They also have a number of social events, like dances, picnics, and trips to the Kosair Shrine Circus, Kings Island and Kentucky Kingdom.
