missouri rainbow girls little pledges

State Pledge Mother: Bobbie Harris

State Pledge Sister: Anna Pierce, North Kansas City

pledge2Jeanne Mueller, Supreme Patriotism and Supreme Inspector in Missouri, developed the concept of Rainbow Pledges many years ago. The main objective of Rainbow Pledges is to introduce young girls, ages 7 to 11, to Rainbow and encourage them to become members of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls. Missouri Pledges have their own ritual and they are often invited to various Rainbow events including installations, open meetings, and socials. Additionally, members from various Pledge groups across Missouri perform the Pledge initiation during Grand Opening at Grand Assembly each year under the guidance of the State Pledge Mother.

Missouri is proud that our beloved “Dragon Lady” began an organization that has been accepted and utilized by other Grand Jurisdictions of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls.

The Sparkles
In 2000, Missouri introduced the formation of Sparkles. Any little girl between the ages of 3 and 7 may become a Rainbow Sparkle upon the invitation of any Pledge, Rainbow Girl, Mason, Eastern Star, Amaranth, or Grand Cross of Color Master. Missouri Sparkles have their own pin in the shape of the state of Missouri with the words “Rainbow Sparkle” in gold and seven stars forming a Rainbow in the seven colors of Rainbow.
