Order of the Eastern Star

From https://oesny.org/ (excellent, informative site):

The Order of the Eastern Star is a social, charitable and Fraternal Organization to which both women and men can belong. There are approximately 48,000 members throughout the State of New York. The Order of the Eastern Star is comprised of 395 Chapters and is divided into 39 regional Districts within the State of New York. The regional Districts are usually comprised of one or more counties.
Membership in the Order of the Eastern Star is open to women 18 years of age or older, as well as Master Masons in good standings in their Lodges. A candidate may make their application through a Masonic Relationship or by being sponsored by a member of the Order of the Eastern Star who is a Master Mason. A belief in a Supreme Being is also required.

Note: They used a symbol in the booklet which was three dots shaped like the points of a triangle. It was usually used in the title, for example after the R and the W in R W Jessie M Willshaw. I have substituted two colons as such: :: for it.

O. E. S.




Enthusiasm, "Thatís Us"












"Hail guest".

We ask not what thou art;

If friend, we greet thee hand and heart

If stranger, such no longer be;

If foe, our love shall conquer thee.

If there is any place in the world where cordiality and good fellowship should reign supreme it is at our Chapter Meetings. If you are not acquainted with those who sit beside you then the true spirit of the Eastern Star is not present. "Get busy." Wear a smile, and say "Sister my name is ....... What is yours?" The happiness derived from doing deeds of kindness is the highest the purest, and the most lasting of human enjoyments.
