Hurricane Harvey
I have received many calls regarding Hurricane Harvey and what we can do as Eastern Star.
Make a donation to the Eastern Star Home of Texas just by shopping on Amazon. You can link your Amazon account to Amazon Smiles and Amazon will automatically donate .5% of your purchases. Just go to and designate Eastern Star Home of Texas as your charity of choice.
Aim: I hope that Eastern Star in Texas will be “inspired” to be a stronger organization and that together we will accomplish great things.
Emblem: The Swan
I chose the swan for several reasons.  I used it as my emblem the first time I was Worthy Matron because it’s beauty reminded me of the beauty and dignity of our work.   “May you have the compassion, freedom and beauty of the Swan remembering that true beauty comes from within.
The Owl
The owl is a symbol for vigilance, acute wit, wisdom, keen sight and patience.

Nature has a wonderful palette, and for that reason, I have selected the colors of the sunset as my colors.  In literally minutes, the colors change from blues to oranges, to reds to and to purplish tones... just another spectacular display and I am always left speechless by the sunsets vibrancy. 

Flower: The flower I have selected is the lily.  Specifically those that are orange or coral in color such as the Royal Sunset Lily or Tiger Lily.   The color orange is a healing color and expresses vitality, creativity, endurance and warmth.  Orange stands out with a sincere and dynamic display, which makes these flowers filled with enthusiasm and happiness. Orange flowers also symbolize curiosity and are associated with friendly people.
