The Gun Barrel City Masonic Youth Rainbow Girls attended their annual state conference in Waco, Texas, June 28-July 1, where the theme was “Journey to Neverland.” The Gun Barrel City Assembly was recognized for participating in Boxtops for Education, donating pop tabs to the Ronald McDonald House, and for their many hours of service. Samantha Ramos earned her proficiency certificates; and three girls, as well as their Mother Advisor, participated in the ritualistic lectures and assembly room set-up competitions. Tara Trimmins was recognized for her 8 years of membership in Rainbow, and Samantha Ramos and Emily Currey for their 5-year memberships. Emily took part as Sister of Patriotism in the Memorial Service and served as a Grand Page. The Assembly was very excited and proud when the following appointments were announced: Samantha Ramos as Grand Patriotism, Emily Currey as Grand Representative to Alabama and Mississippi, and Tara Trimmins as Junior Member of the Grand Executive Committee. The girls were also treated to an evening at SkateWorld (skating and laser tag).
