Welcome to the Connecticut Grand Chapter
We hope you will join us this year as we travel as
"Live every moment. Laugh every day. Love beyond words."
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
The Order of the Eastern Star is many things to its members but most of all, the Order is a coming-together of people who have the same ideals and who genuinely care for one another. It doesn’t matter how much money you make, what you do for a living, or the size of your home. What matters is that we care for one another and our communities.
I came from a Masonic family and joined Rainbow at the age of 16 with my sisters. When I was able, I immediately joined the Order of the Eastern Star, and have been active ever since. My Chapter became part of my family, they were there as I grew up. They were at my wedding and they were there when I became a mother. They gave me a lot of advice and have inspired me through the years.
Traveling around the state I noticed that the fraternal love and friendship that I experienced as a Star member, was not unique to my chapter. I see it everywhere, chapter members taking care of one another and encouraging each other.
Our Order, as a whole, has given countless volunteer hours helping those in our communities. Through our generosity we have made differences in the lives of countless people of all ages. And as individuals we have given the most valuable gift to our Sisters and Brothers -- love and care in their time of need. Our Order has brought us together as friends who are as close as true family.
Your Worthy Grand Patron, Vincent Kalinauskas, and I are so proud of who we are and what we do. We ask you to keep a positive outlook, be enthusiastic and keep doing what you can to help our Order continue its proud heritage.
