Omaha Assembly Celebrates Seventy-five Years
(Mrs. Daniel) Erin Marr
The Social Order of the Beauceant has long been a prom inent part of the Masonic family in Omaha, Nebraska. Constituted on July 14, 1944, Omaha Assembly 91 began with thirty-six charter members and, during the first year, grew to fifty-one members. The organization continued to strongly attract the women of Omaha, and in five years, membership doubled to 116. Over the last seventy years, membership has ranged from 104 to as many as 280 members.
Omaha Assembly 91, Social Order of the Beauceant has enjoyed sustained vigor over its lifetime. This is evidenced in that the Assembly has never had a repeat worthy president. As a result, the Past Presidents' Club has had seventy five members and has become a back bone of the Assembly.
Two of our members, (Mrs. Leslie) Ruth Armstrong and (Mrs. Kirk) Judy Limas-Rubida, served as supreme worthy presidents. Many others have served as supreme officers and committee members.
Two Assemblies have merged with Omaha Assembly, Council Bluffs Assembly 82 in 1994 and Lincoln Assembly 253 in 2001.
A special 75th year celebration of this wonderful organization will be held on November 9, 2019. The festivities will be hosted by (Mrs. Daniel) Erin Marr, worthy president, Omaha Assembly 91, Social Order of the Beauceant.
Supreme Assembly is celebrating 100 years of faith, loyalty, and love. To celebrate this grand occasion, a special commemoration coin had been cast. If you are interested in adding one to your coin collection for only $10 plus postage, please email (Mrs. Dean) Edie Rein at email@example.com.
