The Order of the Eastern Star is a fraternity of women and men dedicated to charity, truth and loving kindness. Although not a part of the Masonic fraternity, membership is based on a Masonic affiliation or relationship, a belief in a supreme being, and a desire to acquire additional knowledge for self improvement. It is the largest fraternal organization in the world to which both men and women may belong.
Local Eastern Star Chapters select their own charities and places of service in their own communities. Some statewide projects include scholarships for ministerial students, other general scholarships for youth, support for children with learning disabilities, support for a home for aged members, and support for research or cures for disorders like cancer and heart disease.
In addition to its charitable purposes, the Eastern Star is also a social organization with frequent formal events and ceremonies, not to mention the many events filled with fun and fellowship. Being a member is a wonderful and a fulfilling way of life. Please ask an Eastern Star to tell you more about it!
