At the Stated meeting of Cheshire-Mt Vernon Lodge No. 23 held on Saturday, July 8th, members of the Windsor (Vermont) Assembly, International Order of the Rainbow for Girls came to have supper and gave a presentation about Rainbow. The young ladies brought a delicious strawberry shortcake to share for dessert. Emily Herschel, Past Grand Worthy Advisor of Vermont, talked about what Rainbow offers to its members, the community work they do, their state charity, their upcoming Grand Assembly sessions and Supreme Assembly. She also spoke about the cost associated with these events and the effort that each Rainbow Girl puts in to raise the money to attend them. The members of the Lodge excused themselves from the dining room and opened the Lodge. After a quick discussion and vote the Master put the Lodge at recess and invited the young ladies and their Mother Advisor to join them. He was pleased to present them with a donation to help offset the cost of them attending their Grand Assembly which will take place in Rutland, VT on July 21-23.
Cheshire-Mt Vernon Lodge is the sponsoring body of Upper Valley Chapter, order of DeMolay. Most of the members of the DeMolay Chapter either do or did attend Windsor High School and have a very close relationship with the Windsor Rainbow Assembly. That relationship has extended to the Lodge and truly demonstrates the bonds of our Masonic family.
