416th Edition, December 2022




Hello Rainbow Sisters, Advisors, and Friends!

Hello Rainbow Sisters, Advisors, and Friends! The holiday season is finally here! I hope you are as excited as Roo and I for all of the upcoming festivities!

I would like to thank everyone who gave toiletry items for the Purses Of Empowerment project at the Grand Cross of Color Luncheon! We got an overwhelming amount of items and I am super grateful for all of you and your generosity! Please continue to be saving items as we will be collecting all year.

On December 10th we will be going to Ethan Place for our annual caroling event at 2 p.m. Please wear festive Rainbow appropriate clothing, but remember it often is warm there so dress accordingly. Remember that many of these folks are unable to get out during the holiday season, so let’s spread some joy and cheer to them! Plan on wearing a mask as this is still the Rhode Island Department of Health Policy.

December 31st will be the Statewide Initiation at 10 a.m. at Warwick Assembly. We will be initiating a few young ladies into our Order. That afternoon from 12-3pm, the Grand Lodge Youth Committee will be hosting a New Year’s Eve Party for Rainbow and DeMolay. Attire is Christmas Pajamas and there will be games and lunch will be provided. Please invite prospects so we can initiate more into our wonderful Order so we can meet our goal for Grand Assembly!

I would like to wish everyone who is taking end of semester exams the best of luck, and I know you will all do great!

Happy Holidays to all of you and I hope you all get to spend time with your loved ones! I wish you all a great upcoming new year! I would like to end with a quote, “Every year you make a resolution to change yourself. This year, make a resolution to be yourself.”

TTFN (Ta Ta For Now),
