DeMolay Conclave Dance: By Sierra

Posted in Blog on August 23rd, 2017 by Casey Humphries

On July 22nd 2017, sisters Sierra, Taylor, and Victoria attended the DeMolay Conclave dance held at Christopher Newport University. It was very fun to see so many of the Masonic Youth just dancing and enjoying themselves. There were a few slow songs and some of the Richmond girls even got asked to dance! JPGWA Rachal Murray and GWA Libby Whitehouse were there, as well as girls from a lot of our Assemblies. We got to see some of our old friends as well.  Over all it was a fun night!

Richmond Escapes! By Taylor

Posted in Blog on August 22nd, 2017 by Casey Humphries

  

Richmond Assembly had to forgo their meeting on July 25th because of work being done at the Temple so instead we were able to go to Laser Quest and try out the Escape Rooms.

The escape room was so much fun. We had two rooms, one that the younger girls and pledges did, and one for the older girls. In the older girls’ room we had to open a chest that contained more locked boxes and inside the little boxes we had to find the key to get out. We finally solved the puzzle but it was one minute after the time was up. The younger girls won their escape room so we took funny pictures. We still received laser tag coupons and were able to play 2 games of laser tag as a group. It was a lot of fun and I look forward to doing it again!

My First Grand Assembly: By Lina

Posted in Blog on August 21st, 2017 by Casey Humphries

I had a very exciting experience during my first Grand Assembly. Not just to see and meet friends, but because of all the fun we shared as well. It was such an honour to serve as a Grand Flag Bearer, especially considering the fact that I had only joined a few months before. It was an even greater honor to become appointed as the Grand Page to Supreme Inspector Mom Jenkins during Grand Banquet. My favourite part was definitely the dance on the last night. This was a wonderful first experience, and I can’t wait to have an even better Grand Assembly next year!

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation: By Victoria

Posted in Blog on August 16th, 2017 by Casey Humphries

    

For our first fun event of the Grand Year we went to the Brock Environmental Center of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. We learned about what the Foundation does and how they are working to keep the bay and all the things that live in it safe. After that we went on a walk where we happened to be very lucky to find a baby turtle trying to get to the water. All I have to say is that the turtle was very adorable and we took it to the water where it was more safe. Before lunch they let us use a net to catch fish and everyone was excited to participate. Some people caught blue crabs, jelly fish, and different types of fish. Once we let all the little animals go, we went back to go eat and the food was great. It was a great experience and I’m happy I had the chance to go.
