Don't forget to have your Mother Advisors get your names to Mom Barbara Parisella to get your membership/service necklaces from Supreme.

The 2018-2020 "Friendship Blooms Where Rainbow Is Planted" session will focus on membership and service. A beautiful necklace has been selected which can be filled with the jewels of our Order. Each jewel requires either being the first-line signer on an Application for Membership OR reporting 20 hours of community service. The blue (Fidelity) jewel will be awarded for first-line signers, recognizing their fidelity to our Order by bringing in new members. All other jewels will be awarded, in order, based on 20 hours of community service. Community service, for the purpose of this program, is recognized service within each jurisdiction. That is, participation in the jurisdiction's statewide service project, a local assembly's term service project, independent service such as cleaning a park, providing uncompensated tutoring to a non-family member,uncompensated babysitting for a non-family member, etc. Service hours reported at a member's local assembly can (and should) be included in this program. The goal is for our members to have a very full necklace at the end of two years!

Adults who wish to participate are welcome to report their service hours as well. Adults are asked to pay a one-time fee of $6 to cover the cost of the necklace. Please contact Mom Barbara Parisella to earn your necklace and jewels.

Lots of fliers for girls, parents, pledges, and even alumni, pencils (only 5 cents each) with gorainbow.org and rirainbowgirls.org as well as the Rainbow emblem on them are available for promotional activities as well as either one or both of our pull-up banners and a new blue table cloth that says gorainbow.org. Call Mom Therrien for these promotional items.

Rainbow Necklaces at the Craft Table at Grand Assembly

We will be doing paid pre-orders for $15.00 each at Grand Representatives Day to be picked up at Grand Assembly. If people want to wait to buy them at Grand Assembly weekend, the price will be $20.00 each. Necklaces are 18" long. If you desire a longer necklace, it would be a different price (suggest to pre-order too and specify how long please). Quantities are very limited due to the time required. We hope to be able to fulfill all the orders.
