Eastern Star Scrapbooks

Scrapbook 1

Scrapbook of Florence's social activity as a member, chaplain, publicity chair, and conductress of the Order of the Eastern Star from 1949 to 1956. It's fun to play "Where's Florence?" in the group shots, but rather easy to pick her out — she's the one who never smiles.

Scrapbook 2

Scrapbook of Florence's time as the worshipful matron of the Eastern Star chapter in Owosso in 1956 and her continuing membership in later years, as well as her son Jim's installation as worshipful master of the Masonic Lodge in Alpena, Michigan, in 1981.
