Norfolk Assembly Dad Spotlight: Joel Bundy

Posted in Blog on May 9th, 2017 by Webmaster

Norfolk Assembly #15 is doing a spotlight on the dads who are involved and support our Assembly on a regular basis to learn more about them.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Dad Joel Bundy and I learned many interesting details about him and his life. Dad Joel works as an executive at Sentara Hospital. He decided to become involved in Masonry because he always loved mysteries and thought that in Masonry he would get to learn about the mysteries of life. He was fourty seven when he first became a Mason. He told me that when he first became the Worshipful Master of the Lodge, he felt a complete mix of emotions. He felt excitement because he was becoming the Worshipful Master and nervous because of all of the ritual work he would have to learn and do. I asked him, “What made you want to come and help the Rainbow Girls?” He said that it was because he has four daughters of his own and whenever he comes to our meetings, he is reminded of them. I asked him about his favorite memory with us and he said that it was when he first witnessed our closing prayer when we kneel around the altar, and as we rise the higher level people help everyone rise and reach the top. I asked him what his favorite vacation was and he said that it was when he went swimming with the dolphins in Florida with his girls.

Dad Joel enjoys playing jazz music on his trumpet and reading all things Shakespeare. The final question I asked him was, “What advice would you give to us about life?”. He told me to always pay attention to the little things in life, live in the moment, and never take anything for granted. He told me this because when he was younger, he had almost died and he realized that he was taking life for granted and he didn’t want us to do that.

I have learned so much about Dad Joel through this experience and I hope that all of you have learned something about him as well.

2017 Spring MCHQWA Ball

Posted in Blog on May 6th, 2017 by Webmaster

On April 29, we went to MCHQWA Ball. Lauren and Sara rode in one car while Brittany, a prospect, and I drove in another car to meet more of our Rainbow Sisters at the Ball. On the way to the Ball, we took the backroads and ended up in Maryland where we then headed back down to Virginia.

The road trip there was so much fun, but the dance was even more fun. We danced the night away and then had introductions where most of the Hampton Girls there were either introduced or acted as escorts. As the dance continued, we danced even more.

The night was filled with laughter and I was sad when it was time to go home. I can’t wait until the next MCHQWA Ball!

Hampton Assembly Serves at Fox Hill UMC

Posted in Blog on May 5th, 2017 by Webmaster

On April 29, Hampton Assembly attended and helped at the Fox Hill Central United Methodist Church Spring Festival. We had a booth set up where we talked to several people about what Rainbow means to us. We also had a craft table. We made butterflies and spring fences. When we had some down time at the festival, we played with Dad Mike’s pug, Louie! He became our Hampton mascot.

It was a wonderful time to spend with 5 of our girls and a prospect before we headed up to MCHQWA Ball!

With Rainbow Love and Service,
