. . . The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization in the world to which both men and women belong. It is a social order comprised of persons with spiritual values but it is not a religion. Its appeal rests in the true beauty of the refreshing and character-building lessons that are so sincerely portrayed in its ritualistic work. A deep fraternal bond exists between its members. It is the wholesome relationship of sisterly and brotherly love brought about through high principles exemplified in our lives which makes us near and dear to each other.
. . . The stated purposes of the organization are: Charitable, Educational, Fraternal and Scientific; but there is much more to it than that. Dr. Rob Morris, the Poet Laureate of Masonry, founded the Order using beautiful and inspiring biblical examples of heroic conduct and moral values. Eastern Star strives to take good people and through precept and example, build an Order which is truly dedicated to charity, truth and loving kindness. Here in New Brunswick, thousands of dollars are raised annually by our members for numerous projects which benefit mankind such as scholarships for young people and for clergy, Service Dogs, Heart, Arthritis and Cancer Research. Social functions include Teas, Luncheons, Pot Luck Suppers, Picnics, Fashion Shows and Dinner Dances where good times are had and lasting friendships are made. Being a member of the Eastern Star means you do not have to be alone. There is always a friend to talk to, to travel with or to just be there.
. . . While we try to maintain this as a central clearing house for information, news and resources for all Eastern Star members, we can only post the information that is made available by YOU, the user. We welcome all submissions whether they are articles of interest, upcoming chapter events, questions, photos or relevant material.
