One By One Program
Donate $5.00 or more and receive a "Working Together - A Masonic Family" pin
to wear to show your support of the efforts to preserve our Rainbow heritage for future members to enjoy
at the International Supreme Temple in McAlester, Oklahoma. The urgent need is a new heating and air conditioning system.
The International Supreme Temple in McAlester, Oklahoma, is headquarters for the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls.
Built in 1951, with money raised by Rainbow Girls from around the world for Rainbow Girls,
the building is in need of a new haring and air conditioning system, a very costly project.
The Rainbow Girls have established a fund to raise money for this project.
They are asking that members of our Masonic Family help them with this project and make a difference.
Our founder, Rev. W. Mark Sexson, became a 33rd degree Mason
and served as Most Worshipful Grand Master of Oklahoma,
Worthy Grand Patron of the Order of the Eastern Star in Oklahoma,
Secretary of the Scottish Rite Bodies,
and Knight Commander of the Court of Honor as well as many other duties.
In 1909 he went to several European countries and to Assyria, Palestine,
searching for Masonic information in preparation for his work as a contributor to Masonic literature.
He spent practically all of his life in this field and as a result was honored by the Fraternity on many occasions.
However, his most rewarding work was writing the ritual for the International
Order of the Rainbow for Girls.
He established this wonderful organization for the young women of today in 1922.
We are asking for help to maintain this beautiful building.
Ask any of the girls who have visited it about the wonderful feelings that one receives when you walk into the building,
especially the Assembly Room.
If everyone affiliated with our Masonic Family would help by contributing at least one dollar ($1) to this project
the Rainbow Girls would realize their goal of helping to preserve their Rainbow heritage for future members to enjoy.
One by One this can be done.
