Supreme Centennial Logo Designed by
Kaity G., MA Grand Worthy Advisor


Congratulations to all of you who had a Rainbow girl submit a design for our Supreme Centennial Celebration in 2022. Supreme Assembly contacted each of you to send out information to your Members asking for original motifs to be submitted that would focus on the future promise of Rainbow. One design would then be chosen as our logo to represent our Organization on our official centennial pin, t-shirts and other items throughout the year.

I was impressed and inspired by all of the designs that we received. There were over two dozen entries and choosing a design was very difficult. I am very proud of each and every one of the girls and appreciate their participation and hard work.

The design that was chosen was submitted by Kaitlyn G from Billerica Assembly #61 in Massachusetts. It depicts girls of all ages and focuses on the future of Rainbow, specifically leadership, friendship, and diversity. Please join me in congratulating Kaitlyn for her creativity and talent that is reflected in her emblem design. 

Thank you to all who participated in making this contest a success.

Rainbow Service,

Mrs. Judy Fortenberry, Supreme Worthy Advisor

In Memory of Helen Holt
1931 - 2021

Mrs. Helen Holt, along with her husband Richard for many years were loyal supporters and active participants in helping to mold Massachusetts Rainbow Girls.  She was a Past Worthy Advisor and Past Mother Advisor of Saugus Assembly No. 33, International Order of the Rainbow for Girls.  She also served as Grand Deputy, Grand Executive Board Member and Grand Scholarship Committee Member.

As one Majority Member stated "I think she was at every Easter Bunny Breakfast! Every Saugus meeting, too. Her constant presence was comforting when we had big parts- even the big girls get nervous but she'd take both of our hands and comfort us. An incredible woman and an incredible advisor."

Mom Holt was always a strong supporter of the girls continuing education, and therefore we are sure she would be pleased that donations be sent to the Grand Scholarship Fund to support their education.

Welcome to Massachusetts International Order of the Rainbow for Girls

Massachusetts Grand Assembly is a proud member of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls - a non-profit masonic youth group that teaches girls what matters most - leadership, confidence and citizenship.  Every day, across the globe, hundreds of thousands of girls come together to laugh, share, and grow through fun events and challenging workshops designed to empower girls of all ages. Rainbow Girls volunteer for their community and travel to other assemblies. Along the way, they make new friends and gather invaluable life skills that help them become the best daughter, sister, and friend they can be.

Whether their dream is to become the CEO of their own company, a talented artist, or a loving mother, Rainbow Girls learn that they can accomplish anything, and in the process, they can make a difference in this world.

Massachusetts Rainbow Girls -- Grand Assembly 2019 in Plymouth MA

Rainbow has taught me leadership, public speaking and responsibility.  Through Rainbow I have created many friendships and bonds with girls in Massachusetts and all over the world.  I know these friendships will last a lifetime
