  • What is The Order of the Eastern Star? What type of organization are they? I have never heard of them. Great job on the donations. Most donations see their way to the bigger schools like Marshall. Nice to see Slater kids getting some help.

  • They are associated with the Masons. Generally it is a women's organization.
