Massachusetts Rainbow Girls Shine!

April - 2018

Grand Assembly of Massachusetts is pleased to announce the
GWA-Elect 2018-2019:


Megan A. F., PWA of Spencer Assembly #72

In addition to supporting her home assembly and filling in at other assemblies as often as she can, Megan has served the Grand Assembly of Massachusetts as a Grand Representative twice, as well as held the offices of Grand Patriotism, Grand Confidential Observer, Grand Chaplain and is currently our Grand Charity!


Megan has been an active participant at Rainbow Camp for over eight years! She first attended as a Camper at ALL sessions, then joined the staff as a Junior Counselor and Counselor of Archery & Drama. She is currently the RCMA Ambassador and is gearing up for another season as a Counselor at RCMA this summer!


Megan started her college career at Westfield State University and she is currently studying Fine Arts as a Junior at UMass Dartmouth.


She is excited to have the honor of serving the Grand Assembly of Massachusetts as our 93rd Grand Worthy Advisor and in her words: “You get out of Rainbow what you put into it, and I want to put my everything into Rainbow in return for what it has given me.”


Stay tuned for Megan’s great reveal of her term plans at Grand Assembly in June!

News About Saugus Assembly 

Hello Massachusetts Rainbow!

With some sadness Saugus Assembly has made the decision to "go dark". We will hold our last meeting on December 28th and hope that you can join us.


Of course because this is Rainbow it’s never all bad news! The members of Saugus are very excited to become part of Wakefield Assembly, and Wakefield is happy to have new sisters!


Wakefield will hold the first meeting with their new members on January 4, 2018 and an installation on January 18, 2018.

 

Saugus plans to actively recruit members to begin a "Pledge" group and hopefully with success will be able to activate the assembly in less than 5 years when the charter must be surrendered.  

 

For now, what is best, is that the few active members of Saugus are able to gain a full value of membership within Wakefield Assembly to continue their pot of gold journey.


As always keep an eye on our notices and wish the girls well on their new journey to the pot of gold!

 

Majority Service and Dedication in Memory of Judith Judson
at Billerica Assembly on Thursday, December 21st 2017

Join us for a Majority Service for 4 of our wonderful members as well as a Dedication in Memory of Judith Judson, who passed away in September, 2017.


A collation will follow the meeting.

November - 2017

Annual Scholarship Rainbow Ball

Congratulations to our Ball Queen and Court for the 2017 Rainbow Ball!  Did you know this is one of our highly attended events in MA Rainbow?  Every year our Scholarship Committee hosts a Rainbow Ball the day after Thanksgiving and the funds are used to grant our MA Rainbow Girls scholarships for school!  Everyone has a wonderful time and the crowning of the ball queen and court is one of the many highlights.  We also spend time with our DeMolay members who also love to stop by and attend this event!

Majority Service for our Jr. PGWA and her Assembly members

Congratulations to the three newest Massachusetts Majority Members, Jessica, PGWA Caitlin, and Lauren. We hope that you will always continue to fill your pot of gold.

Victoria A. L., Bronze Medalist at the USA Taekwondo National Championships 2017
with her Head Instructor/Coach Mr. Taeyoung Kim

Victoria A. L. - Bronze Medalist at the 2017 USA Taekwondo National Championships

Victoria A. L. is a member of Natick Assembly #28 and has been a student of Taekwondo at BayState Taekwondo Academy (25 School Street, Framingham, MA) for six years. She is currently a High Red Belt and is testing for her Bo Dan degree on September 9, 2017. Since she was a Yellow Belt, she has competed in local Taekwondo competitions. For the past two years, she has competed at the state and national levels. Victoria was a Bronze Medalist at the USA Taekwondo National Championships 2016 for Poomsae (Forms). She again qualified this year to go to the Nationals and this time she earned a Bronze Medal for Sparring. 


Being part of the BayState Taekwondo Competition Team is something that Victoria takes great pride in. She is a determined and enthusiastic student of the sport. To excel in this sport she has had to train 4-7 hours every week at the academy with additional practice hours at home. The benefits of practicing Taekwondo are many fold. She has developed a high level of self discipline, self confidence, and physical strength. These are all benefits she can carry into her adult life and professional career. Victoria will be a Junior Black Belt at the age of 12. It is a responsibility she does not take lightly. Victoria currently gives back by assistant teaching at the academy. She has aspirations of earning a Gold Medal at the Nationals and trying out for the USA Olympic Team in the future. With determination and focus, she will go after her dream. 

Where do MA Rainbow Girls go?

EVERYWHERE!

Having Trouble Spreading the Word of Rainbow?


Advertising makes it easy, and what's easier and more attention-grabbing than a Yard Sign? They are colorful and can be displayed during events, meetings, activities, etc. Buy two - place one permanently on the lawn of the Masonic Hall and keep the other in the car for any event or community service that you perform!


Check out the Yard Sign sample HERE and contact Mom Debbie Kenny if your assembly can use one! (We all can!)
