Thanks to anonymous donor

Wednesday March 8, 2017

The Order of the Eastern Star (OES) is an organization that is part of the Masonic family and is open to both Freemasons in good standing and women who have a family relationship to a Freemason. The OES jurisdiction of British Columbia and Yukon has a mandate to assist in the welfare of cancer patients and to support cancer research and treatments.

Whitehorse Chapter #95 would like to thank the anonymous Whitehorse resident who recently donated $500 to our chapter.

This generous donation, along with other chapter funds, will go towards the purchase of a cancer patient chair in Karen’s Room at the Whitehorse General Hospital.

This is just one of the many generous acts that we see every day across our territory and the OES Whitehorse Chapter is proud to support our hospital and bring some comfort to its patients.

What do the group do.  I always thought the Mason were a secret society - I did not realize they allowed women to be part of it, They did not in the past in Scotland where it originated.
