Congratulations McKaela from the Master and all the Brethren at
Samuel Warren Hackett Lodge #574.

In January of 2012: Bro. Jim's daughter was installed as Drill Leader for Evergreen Assembly of the Rainbow Girls.  Bro. Jim wrote: It was cool because we had three generations with Masonic Heritage in the Lodge room where a fourth generation, my wife's Grandfather attended Lodge.  My Mother-in-law was Worthy Advisor of Evergreen Assembly, my wife was a Job's Daughter and my daughter were all in the same room.

And now, July of 2012: Bro. Jim's daughter has receive another honor that I'm sure was very well deserved.  Bro. Jim states:  McKaela and the girls from Evergreen Assembly had a wonderful time at Grand Assembly this year!  They participated in ritual competition and McKaela was voted in as a representative to the State of Ohio.  She will exchange emails and pictures with a Rainbow Girl there to explain how Rainbow works in Washington and also has the opportunity to attend Ohio's Grand Assembly.  This year the Washington/Idaho Assembly raised $31,563.32 for NW Harvest, which collects and distributes food to approximately 300 hunger programs in Washington State.  At her local Assembly, McKaela holds the office of Charity, two chairs away from Worthy Advisor and helps open and close meetings. 

Bro. Jim and his wife, Theresa serve on the Advisory Board and Jim is the official Ferndale #264 representative to the Assembly.
