Your Sparkle Counts

Let us introduce you to the “Your Sparkle Counts!” committee.  We are so excited to begin the journey to increase our OES SPARKLE across Pennsylvania during Joyce & Bobby’s year as WGM & WGP.  For the “Your Sparkle Counts!” committee, you can earn points as you SPARKLE this year to Serve, Participate, Assist others, improve Ritualistic work, spread Kindness, provide Leadership…all to Electrify OES.

Please use a “Your Sparkle Counts!” Chapter Member Points Form to start recording your points each time you SPARKLE for OES this year (see links below).  As your SPARKLE shines brighter & brighter and you’ve earned 100 points, your Chapter Representative will award you your first wristband.  You may earn up to 5 wristbands ~ one for each 100 points you earn ~ blue, yellow, white, green, & finally red.  Please turn in a copy of your form to your Chapter Representative at each Chapter meeting, so we can watch the SPARKLE grow across the state each month.  When you SHINE BRIGHT enough to earn all 5 wristbands, please continue to record points and turn in your forms each month to help your Chapter, Region, & Section grow their SPARKLE.

Each Region AGCCM has a “Steppin’ Up Trophy” to be presented each month to the Chapter that STEPPED UP and showed the most SPARKLE!  There will be additional awards at Grand Chapter next year in June, BY THE SHORE IN 2024, so we need everyone to SPARKLE ON!

We know we can COUNT on you to help ENERGIZE PA OES by bringing SPARKLE to all that you say and do this year because..
