Visit to Bethel 76

Last evening, I attended my first Job's Daughters meeting at Bethel 76 in White Bear Lake. I was most warmly welcomed by Kellie Jackson, the Honored Queen, and all the girls and adults at the meeting.

Two new members were also attending their first meeting after installation - Hailey and Karen. When asked to comment on the installation, Karen exclaimed, "I got installated!"

I was impressed with the memory work and the fact that each of the girls present gave a report on something. The skills developed in using the memory and public speaking will be most valuable to these young ladies.

Those are skills which all Masonic bodies seek to develop in their members. It is one of the real benefits of belonging to these organizations.
