Our first priority is to have fun, all while helping those around us in order to better our community and the world as a whole. Every year our Grand Worthy Advisor activities to raise money for our statewide service project, Camp Boggy Creek. During the year, the local assemblies also raise money to purchase needed items for the camp. At the end of our year we present the money and items to the organization at our annual state convention called Grand Assembly.
Service projects are also planned by the Worthy Advisor, the leader of each local Assembly. The girls participate in these projects during the Worthy Advisor’s term. Rainbow Girls work with a lot of different charities and community agencies such as nursing homes, the American Lung Association, Shriners Hospitals, and the American Cancer Society.
The greatest thing about helping others is that you are participating in these activities with girls your own age, who share the same interests as you. So you are making life-long friendships, all while supporting a worthwhile cause.
We help our Masonic family by serving at their stated meeting dinners, attending other youth events and performing our memorization work to perfection.
Merit bars and badges are earned for their participation with their Assembly and for the service they offer others. These awards are usually presented to the girls at the Installation of Officers.
Meetings are held twice a month. At these meetings we sign-up for upcoming events, plan fun activities and make decisions about matters in the assembly. These meetings give both girls and adults an opportunity to get together and take care of matters that are important to running a successful assembly.
Adults are always present to provide support, guidance, and help interpret the rules. Members also learn to memorize meaningful lectures and to be prepared for extemporaneous speeches. Some meetings conclude with a presentation or unique entertainment.
We play just as hard as we work. The girls enjoy a variety of fun activities. We use these activities to introduce prospective members to the girls of the assembly and to show them just how much fun we all have together.
If you have ever wanted to travel the state or travel to different states, then we look forward to you joining us on one of our many road trips. Assemblies all across the state travel hundreds of miles in a year to visit other assemblies.
From volunteering for different charities, to working to improve their public speaking, to mastering the lessons of Rainbow, members tackle lots of challenging hurdles but ultimately walk away with a sense of pride and accomplishment. Rainbow strives to give girls the tools, training, and encouragement to let their individual spirits shine bright. By providing members with a safe, fun, caring environment where responsible, older girls can interact and mentor younger girls through family involvement.
