2018 Worthy Grand Patron

We are honored to have the privilege to serve as Worthy Grand Matron and Worthy Grand Patron.  Thank you for your support.  Our special project is “Warmth of the Star for Veterans.” We believe our veterans deserve the best so we will be collecting new clothing and other items at each chapter meeting to be given to our veterans.  There will also be a special fund raiser.  Click here to Support Warmth of the Star for Veterans Organized by Grand Chapter PA OES
We hope to share in the friendship and fellowship of our Order as we visit throughout the state and look forward to hearing about all you do to support the charitable works in your communities.

Check out Our Session in June 2019!

Remember Friendship, Fellowship and Service will make us strong.
