|Description & Services|
|Description of service(s)||The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization in the world to which both men and women belong. It is a social order comprised of persons with spiritual values but it is not a religion. Its appeal rests in the true beauty of the refreshing and character-building lessons that are so sincerely portrayed in its ritualistic work.
A deep fraternal bond exists between its members. It is the wholesome relationship of sisterly and brotherly love brought about through high principles exemplified in our lives which makes us near and dear to each other. The stated purposes of the organization are: Charitable, Educational, Fraternal and Scientific; but there is much more to it than that. Dr. Rob Morris, the Poet Laureate of Masonry, founded the Order using beautiful and inspiring biblical examples of heroic conduct and moral values. These portray the noble principles which should adorn the personal lives of Eastern Star members. Eastern Star strives to take good people and through uplifting and elevating associations of love and service, and through precept and example, build an Order which is truly dedicated to charity, truth and loving kindness.
Here in New Brunswick, thousands of dollars are raised annually by our more than 2100 members for numerous projects which benefit mankind such as scholarships for young people and for clergy, Heart, Arthritis and Cancer Research to name a few. Social functions include Teas, Luncheons, Pot Luck Suppers, Picnics, Fashion Shows and Dinner Dances where good times are had and lasting friendships are made. Being a member of the Eastern Star means you do not have to be alone. There is always a friend to talk to, to travel with or to just be there.
