Rainbow Girls ceremonies

Fremont Rainbow Girls Assembly #132 is pleased to announce their 135th installation of officers. The installation ceremonies will be held 7 p.m. on October 21 at Fremont Masonic Center, 37419 Fremont Boulevard.

The Worthy Advisor Elect is Miss Shawna Kelley, a senior at Mission San Jose High School. The Mother Advisor for the term is Ms. Diana Liles. Dress code is semi-formal (skirt or dress for the ladies, and suit or shirt and slacks for the gentlemen).

The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls (IORG, or Rainbow) is a non-profit, fraternal youth service organization for girls between the ages of 11to 20. Rainbow provides an environment where teenage girls gain self-confidence and self-respect while practicing reverence, patriotism, love and service. Rainbow teaches leadership skills, service to the community and patriotism to our country with respect for all. It is not a religion, cult or secret order. Nor is it connected with any other group using "rainbow" in their name or logo. Rainbow is a character-building service organization that is open to all girls regardless of their religious belief.

The IORG has an active membership of 275,000 girls worldwide with over one million majority members. (At age 20, or upon marriage, whichever occurs first, a girl who is a member in good standing is eligible to receive her majority membership). Since its founding on April 6, 1922, Rainbow is active in 45 states and in nine foreign countries. Girls from Queensland and New South Wales, Australia, Brazil, Bolivia, Aruba, Japan, Philippine Islands, Canada and Germany enjoy the same privileges of the Order as the girls in the United States, where it originated. The organization started in the city of McAlester, Oklahoma where it spread rapidly throughout Oklahoma and the surrounding states, then throughout the nation and into foreign countries.
