The Order of the Eastern Star is the largest fraternal organization in the world to which both women and men may belong. Worldwide, there are over 500,000 members under the General Grand Chapter
Eastern Star is a social order comprised of persons with spiritual values, but it is not a religion. Its appeal rests in the true beauty of the refreshing and character-building lessons that are so sincerely portrayed in its ritualistic work. A deep fraternal bond exists between its members. It is the wholesome relationship of sisterly and brotherly love brought about through high principles exemplified in our lives which makes us near and dear to each other.
Here at Chapter #497 our mission is to exemplify the dignity and worth of a woman seeking grace, personal growth, maturity, prosperity, empowerment, creativity and a personal relationship with GOD. Our willingness to help the needy inspires us remain active in serving our community, through various fundraisers and charitable events.
