GWA PIN AND T-SHIRT PROJECT

This year's GWA pin sells for $5.00 and it embodies the image of a good neighbor. We hope that everyone will wear the pin and sell to your members and Sponsoring Bodies.

The t-shirts may be purchased for $15 in sizes S-3XL, and they are available in three colors: Yellow, Coral, and Navy.

T-shirts and pins may be purchased at all statewide meetings or at our online store:

  OUR TENNESSEE MASCOTS

This year's mascots are "Alvie," the beaver, "Margie," the chipmunk, "Vernon," the skunk, and "Cindy," the raccoon. They all love to travel and they look forward to seeing everyone often. At each event that your mascot attends, it will receive a special button. The mascots may be purchased for $10 at all statewide meetings and are also available at our online store. https://gwa-sales-nashville-area-rainbow.square.site/

   
  "WHEN YOU NEED A HELPING HAND"

We hope that each Assembly will raise money for the Shriners Hospital for Children in Lexington, Kentucky. They treat children orthopedic conditions while providing families expert medical care in a family-centered environment. Each Assembly should have its own fundraiser for this project and participate in the statewide BINGO fundraiser in the Spring. The top 3 Assemblies will be recognized at Grand Assembly.

All donations are due to Mom Rachel and a report to Ms. Karen Lewis by May 15.

   
  "PAINTING BLUE SKIES AND RAINBOWS"

Tennessee Rainbow Girls can be "Good Neighbors" to the patients of the Shrine Hospital by furnishing art supplies to the patients during their recovery. At each OV and statewide event, we will collect coloring books, crayons, colored pencils, and non-bleed markers. All items must be new, unopened packages.

A report of each Assembly's participation is due to Mrs. Lela Woodin or Mrs. Renee' Bolden by May 15.

   
  "HEY THERE, MR. POSTMAN!"
We need to remember the members of our Sponsoring Bodies, our Senior Friends, and our Service Workers! So each Assembly is asked to plan several small on-going projects throughout the year by providing refreshments, holding pecial programs, sending notes or treat bags and making visits.

A report of each Assembly's participation is due to Mrs. Beth Williams by May 15.

   
  "LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR"

Take photos throughout the year at meetings, Official Visits, service projects, social events, and at special events when you've honored your Masonic Family and Senior friends. Bring up to 25 pictures on a flash drive to Homecoming or they can be emailed to be compiled into a slide show for Grand Assembly.

 

"INVESTING IN HIGHER EDUCATION"

Rainbow Girls have been helped for many years with financial assistance for college and vocational training. We will be collecting loose coins at our Official Visits and statewide events to add to our Adda Dinsmore Scholarship Fund. We encourage you to also make an Assembly donation sometime during the year. Donations and memorials should be sent to Ms. Donna Thurman.

A report should be sent to Mrs. Nicole Brummett or Ms. Caitlyn Brummett by May 15.
