I arrived a little after 1pm all dressed and ready for Installation.  We started the Manassas Assembly Installation on time at 2pm with a tribute to the American Flag by Dad Grist and Vanessa.  The Installation was beautiful even if there was an unfortunate incident with one of our Sisters getting sick during the installing of the officers.  It was quickly dealt with and everything moved on as planned.  There were three Past Grand Worthy Advisors present as well as the current Grand Worthy Advisor, Olivia, along with several other VA Grand Officers.  The Installing Musician, Michael Thornton, made everything fun with his guitar playing and our pledge and the visiting pledges made the ribbon ceremony special.  Gigi was installed for her second term as Worthy Advisor and her calendar looks like it has many fun events planned.  This term’s theme is: Happiness; with a motto of:  Find the happiness in all you do; with the Mascots: the original Care Bears.  The Installation had a reception afterwards in the dining hall with a really cute Care Bear cake.

Smithfield Installation: by Kaitlyn

Posted in Blog on August 29th, 2017 by Webmaster

On August 12, Smithfield had their Installation of Officers.  Delaney is the new Worthy Advisor.  I was honored to be her Installing Chaplain for her Installation.  Delaney was crowned by Abby, and her gavel was presented by her parents.  Her theme for her term is “Where the Wild Things Are”.  Delaney’s motto is “This is all Yours.  You are the Owner of this World.”  Her mascot is a wolf that she named Max along with her symbols being crowns, sailboats, and leaves.  Her charity for the term is the American Diabetes Association.  Nearly 30 million people battle diabetes every day and every 23 seconds someone new is diagnosed.  Diabetes causes more deaths a year than breast cancer and AIDS combined. 

After the Installation, we had some dinner and stayed for a dance.  Smithfield’s Installation was beautifully done and I can’t wait to see Delaney throughout her term as Worthy Advisor.

Norfolk Installation of Officers

Posted in Blog on August 26th, 2017 by Webmaster

On August 5, 2017 Batu, Zoe, Zoey, Joella, Katie, Sami, Dalanie, Gigi, and I went to the Norfolk Assembly Installation of Officers. I got to ride down with Vanessa, Zoe, Zoey, Batu, and Joella. Mom Paula drove us. I always like riding down with Mom Paula because it’s always entertaining to see Vanessa annoy Mom Paula 😊. The car ride down was very fun and entertaining. Fun tip, don’t fall asleep in the car! They will take pictures of you while you sleep! I was ecstatic when I saw how pretty the Chesapeake Bay is. I was also excited to go under a tile tunnel because it felt like I was in Japan.

We finally arrived at the Norfolk Masonic Temple around 1:45 pm and saw Pia get installed as Worthy Advisor. It was a very beautiful Installation and Pia wore the most gorgeous cream-colored dress. Pia’s theme is, “Life is a Journey Enjoy the Detours”. Her symbols is the compass, colors are blue, green, orange, and yellow, her mascot is the Kola bear (Penny), her service project is Pin Ministry, her charity project is for Hope for Life and Supreme 2018.

After the Installation, everyone went downstairs and ate some cake pops and spaghetti. While we were eating and socializing we saw the two newest Girls of the Assembly eat baby food as it is a tradition at Norfolk. Then Batu, Vanessa, and I rode home with Mom Paula. Overall it was a very fun trip and I hope to go to more installations in the future.

Pia’s Installation: by Kaitlyn

On August 5th, Norfolk Assembly had their Installation of officers.  Pia was installed as our new Worthy Advisor.  I was excited to be her Installing Chaplain for her Installation.  To tell you a little bit about Pia’s term, her theme is “Life is a Journey, Enjoy the Detours.”  Her motto is, “You were Given this Life because You are Strong Enough to Live it.”  Pia’s honor stations are Hope and Service.  Her colors are baby blue, pear green, cantaloupe orange, and daffodil yellow, along with her mascot being a Koala Bear.  Pia’s service project is the PIN Ministry and her charity projects are Hope for Life and Supreme 2018.  Before the Installation started, Pia’s cousin and our pledge, Joie, carried in the Bible.  Also, Pia was crowned by our Grand Worthy Advisor, Olivia, and her gavel was presented by Hampton’s Worthy Advisor, Brittany.  We had the ribbon ceremony given by our pledges, Sarah and Joie.  We also got our Merit Bars and Service Bars by our Mother Advisor, Christi.  She also announced who won the “Friendliest of the Term” and who is the next Rainbow Dad.  Haylee won the Friendliest and Dad Brian won the Rainbow Dad.  Pia’s Installation went so beautifully and I was so proud of how amazing she did on Saturday.  When we went downstairs for spaghetti, I gave a prayer before we ate.  Everyone enjoyed the food and we had so much fun with our Rainbow, Jobie, and DeMolay family.  Overall, our Installation was beautifully done and I can’t wait to see what Pia has in store for our Assembly.
