REFLECTIONS OF LOVE AND MUSIC

July 3, 4 & 5, 2012, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

 

Aim:                       To do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Theme:                  The difference we make today counts in all our tomorrows.

Honour Stations:      ELECTA: Mothers station of charity and hospitality

                             ORGANIST:         All things are better with music and harmony

Emblems:               The Cup and the Lyre

 

Symbol:     The INUKSHUK (IN-OOK-SHOOK) – a timeless symbol of our close connection with the earth,        originally built by the Inuit in the far North.  It is the result of a consensus of purpose:  a focused action by a group united in its goal and labour.  It recognizes our ability to succeed with others, where we would fail alone.  Each stone is carefully placed so that it will be part of a total structure.  No one is more important than the other, each necessary to all the others!

 

Fun Symbols:     WGM - Kitty Cats & Rocking Chairs

                       WGP – Puppy Dogs & Remote Controls

 

WGM Motto:     Learn from yesterday, Live for today, Laugh at yourself, and Love with all your heart.

 

WGP Motto:      Look at Life through a windshield, not a rear view mirror.

 

Watchwords:     LEARN, LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE

Flowers:         Lily of the Valley & Forget-me-nots

Scriptures:      WGM - 1 Corinthians 16: 14 “Let all that you do be done in Love.” NRSV

          and who will go for us? Then I said, "here I am, send me." NRSV

           

 

Dedication: 

This year of the Grand Chapter of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, and the 65th “Reflections of Love and Music” Session is lovingly dedicated to:

The memory of the parents of both the WGM and WGP, J. Bertram & Gladys H. Larkin and Edwin & Bernice Lipskey, all long time members of the Order of the Eastern Star.  Jane’s Mom was a fine example of the lessons taught by Electa, and guided her to appreciate Eastern Star work and how music can enhance our meetings.  Her Dad encouraged her to memorize, and gave her the necessary Masonic affiliation to become a member as soon as she was old enough.  They were faithful members of Crystal Chapter # 1 (PEI).  Fred’s Mom and Dad were installed as Worthy Matron and Worthy Patron of Ruth Chapter # 26 in London, Ontario when his Dad returned from World War II, in 1945.  He served as Organist a number of times in that Chapter, and at other Ontario Eastern Star events.

 

Jane’s husband Donnie, who although not a member, gave his full support, and shared his talents; and Fred’s wife Peg, who has been a great support to both of us.

 

The members of Crystal Chapter # 1(PEI), and Laurel Chapter # 67, for all their efforts on our behalf, and to the members of both Regent Chapter # 52, and Montague Chapter # 69 for their love and support; and the members of the Grand Jurisdiction of Saskatchewan where Brother Fred was initiated and started his Eastern Star journey.

 

Our Forget-Me-Nots:  Those faithful members of all our Chapters who regularly attend the meetings even though they do not hold an office.
