GWA PIN AND TSHIRT PROJECT

This year's GWA pin sells for $5.00. All members and all of our Fraternal Sponsors are encouraged to wear it. The t-shirts may be purchased for $10 (S - XL) and $12 (XXL - 3XL), and they are available in three colors: blue, forest green and pink. We hope to see everyone wearing these while travelling to our Official Visits and to Assembly and Area meetings and activities. Wearing them to Fraternal or community events will help promote Rainbow!
   
  OUR TENNESSEE MASCOT - KIWI, THE KOALA

Kiwi, the koala, is this year's mascot and will be available at all of the Official Visits. At each OV that Kiwi attends, you will receive an adventure pin to add to her vest. Don't forget that she must not interfere with our meetings. The mascot will be available at each of our Official Visits for $10.

Mrs. Joy Todd will have the adventure pins at each Official Visit.

   
  "GIVING THE GIFT OF ADVENTURE"

We hope that each Assembly will raise money for the Shriner Orthopedic Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky. They treat children with a host of orthopedic conditions while providing families expert medical care in a family-centered environment.

All donations are due to Mom Fortenberry and a report to Ms. Karen Lewis by May 20.

   
  "SPREADING SMILES AROUND THE WORLD"

Operation Smile is an international medical charity that has provided hundreds of thousands of free surgeries for children and young adults in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial deformities. Please bring loose change to each Official Visit or make an Assembly contribution to help provide the cost of 1 surgery. Each girl contributing their change will have a ticket in a drawing at Grand Assembly.

A report of each Assembly's participation is due by May 20 and should be sent to Mrs. Renee' Bolden.

   
  "BEING A GOOD SAMARITAN"

Each Assembly is being asked to collect needed items throughout the year to be donated to your local organization that ministers to the homeless and underserved population. Contact your local shelter for needed items; however, items often include aspirin, shampoo, band-aids, socks, disposable razors, combs, toothbrushes, etc.

A report should be sent to Mrs. Joy Todd by May 20.

"EXPLORING THE WORLD OF FRATERNAL SERVICE"

Tennessee Rainbow has many great adults in our various Sponsoring Bodies who have always been there for us with anything we have needed. They provide transportation, meals, refreshments and many hours of hard work for our meetings and activities. Let's show our gratitude during the year by "giving back" to our adults by volunteering with one or more of their projects, provide dinner or refreshments at an event or do an act of service for them.

Reports are due to Mrs. Beth Williams by May 20.

 
"SHARING SNAPSHOTS OF OUR RAINBOW ADVENTURES"

Have fun posting more Assembly activities and adventures to Official Visits on our TN IORG Facebook page!

Also post 'fun Assembly activities' on Instagram to let your Rainbow Sisters know what's going on across the state. Post using #tniorg or #tniorgadventureawaits.

Take photos of your Rainbow Adventures during the year and bring up to 25 pictures on a CD or flash drive to Homecoming to turn in to the Committee. Pictures may also be emailed. Photos will be used to make a slide show for Grand Assembly.
