Have you heard the news?


There is excitement throughout the (world of) Daughters of the Nile. A new Temple is coming (August 2019) into our world of service and friendship. Welcome, Shakar Temple No. 165, U.D., São Paulo, Brazil.


Share the excitement and news with your Temple. What a wonderful opportunity to rejuvenate the caring, friendship, and service to the children of the Shriners Hospitals for Children®.
As Membership Chairman, why not set a goal for your Temple to have more than two Ceremonials this 2019? This would make for positive growth. Use this time to make us GREAT!! Do more than give an oral report or no report in Session. How about a skit or song??


CHALLENGE the Ladies of the Household to call and talk to their friends and associates about their Shrine/Masonic relatives. They may just remember a greatgrandfather, cousin, or uncle who was always going to his “Lodge meeting.” Friends may not realize that a relative a generation or so ago will qualify them for membership.
A lady who has remarried and has a new step-family may not realize that those members are now eligible for Nile membership.
OPEN the door to our wonderful world of service, which is also a world of friendship and sociability for all those 18 years of age or older.
RECONNECT with your friends from the past when you were in the International Order of Rainbow for Girls, Job’s Daughters, or another Masonic-related organization for girls.
Fondly remember what fun you shared during your days of happy service to others.
REACH OUT to former members of a Temple that is no longer in existence. Remind those ladies of our wonderful work (for our special children) and friendship.
RE-IGNITE their enthusiasm. If the distance is too far for them to attend Sessions, maybe a Club could be started in their area under your Temple.
Daughters of the Nile has always had one Focus – one Charity – Shriners Hospitals for Children® as supported through the Daughters of the Nile Foundation and the Canadian Foundation.

Change starts with me!! Change starts now!! Change starts with WE!!
