A Note from the Grand Chapter Committee

Sisters and Brothers, we would like to remind all members that there are valuable tools available in the form of pamphlets which can be used by your Chapters and can be accessed by clicking on the "Secretaries Info" tab and selecting publications. You can then scroll down to the Membership Info square and look in the third column to select the item needed.  These are also included on this page that you are now viewing.  Besides the "Why Should I Join the Order of the Eastern Star?" pamphlet there is also a video available which can be down loaded to a disk and shown to prospective members.
