Additional Facts

  • The Order of the Eastern Star is not a “secret society.”  Secret societies are underground and hard to find.  We are easily found within the community.  We do enjoy a distinctive means of identifying each other, and only members are allowed in a closed meeting.
  • You can afford membership in the Order of the Eastern Star.  Financial position is not considered in the Order.  Members come from all economic stations of life.
  • Members of all religions may belong to the Order of the Eastern Star.  We only require a belief in the existence of a Supreme Being.
  • After your Initiation into our Order, you may attend meetings and social affairs, and work on fundraising projects as your time permits.  There is no “required” obligation of time.
  • There is no mandatory memory work, except the means of making yourself known if you want to visit another Chapter or if you become an officer.
