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 is also be a special fund raiser.  Click here to Support Warmth of the Star for Veterans Organized by Grand Chapter PA OES  (This link is a GoFundMe link.)
