Chapter Fundraiser

Running with Kris and Artistic Expressions by Lisa are excited to announce that they are teaming up with Windermere Chapter #388 for their annual cookie fundraiser!  We will be selling 100 dozen buttercream iced sugar cookies by the dozen for $15 each with $5 from every dozen sold donated to the Cleveland Dyslexia Center. Sales will begin on May 5th, 2020, and end on June 5th, 2020, or until sold out. Cookies will be delivered in June. Thank You for your support.

As a special bonus there will be a purple Teddy Bear cookie placed inside 4 of the 100 dozen boxes at random.  The person that receives one of the special bears will receive a bonus pound of either chocolate chip or snickerdoodle cookies.  Good Luck and Thank you.

ESTARL
(Eastern Star Training Awards for Religious Leadership)
Sherry Kita PM (Secretary)

Join the largest fraternal organization in the world open to both women and men!

Eastern Star 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.
If you are a Master Mason in good standing or a woman with one of the following specific Masonic affiliations to a Master Mason living or in good standing at the time of his death, age 18 or older, you may become a member:

To inquire about membership, please complete and submit the Contact form. One of our Chapter members will respond to your inquiry. We will answer your questions and, if interested, help you locate a Chapter near you.

Petitions for membership are signed by the applicant and recommended by two members of the Chapter in which the petition is placed. Specific fees will accompany the petition. Petitions are read at a stated meeting and referred to a committee of three (3) for investigation. Once the investigative committee returns with a favorable report, the petition is voted on and, if approved, you will then be initiated into the Order of the Eastern Star!

A member who has been under suspension for non-payment of dues may pay the current year’s dues plus a reinstatement fee. If suspended for more than (1) one year, three-fourths (3/4) of the members present at a stated meeting must vote to consent to reinstatement.
