Traveling Around the State

As the term draws to a close…

To the members, supervisors, and supporters of the Organization of Triangles,

I hope everyone has been enjoying the first few weeks back to school and, of course, Triangle! Our organization had an awesome summer. I was able to speak at many events to promote Triangle and our upcoming events.

I ended my summer by speaking at the Grand Council of Cryptic Masons. I spoke about making our corner where we are better and brighter by helping the community we live in and supporting the Masonic Youth. Our State Director was awarded “Lady of the Council” for her hard work and dedication to our organization. We are so proud of her!

On September 7th, I attended a joint Installation of Officers for FDR DeMolay and R.H. Meyer Assembly, IORG. It was an awesome celebration of our Masonic Youth working together!

A week later it was up to Lake George for the youth representatives to deliver morning speeches at Grand Commandery. I enjoyed addressing a room full of Masons who truly cared about what the youth had to say. Later that day, I traveled to Onistagrawa Triangle’s rehearsal for their Installation to surprise the girls. That night, we went back to Grand Commandery to enjoy a wonderful and very entertaining dinner. It was an evening that I will remember for a very long time.

The next day, I attended Onistagrawa Triangle’s Installation of Officers. Beloved Queen Megan and her officers did a beautiful job. I know Onistagrawa will continue to grow. I was so happy to see FIVE different Triangles represented on the floor to assist in the Installation. I am so proud of all that they have accomplished!

The next weekend, I had a slight vacation where no real travel was involved! I did attend Sunrise Triangle’s half open meeting where they did a great job and got a prospect out of it! That Saturday morning, a few Sunrise girls attended the Bellmore Street Fair where we had a booth with a local lodge. We are so thankful to have supportive Lodges close by.

On September 27th, I will be attending Fidelity Triangle’s Open House. If you will be in the Rochester area, please come by! It will be a great night.

The next day, I, along with a few of our Triangle sisters, will be in Buffalo for the General Grand Joint-Triennial for the General Grand Chapter Royal Arch Masons International and the General Grand Council of Cryptic Masons International. I am so looking forward to this!

I am also looking forward to October 4th, which is my Homecoming on Long Island! It is a public meeting, so I hope to see many friends and supporters there!

October 11th, your next State Representative, Annie Parks, and I will be speaking at Grand Chapter, OES. It is so cool that Eastern Star will be my first and last visit as State Representative!

October 12th is the Onondaga-Oswego and Capital Districts Convention in Liverpool. This is where Annie will be installed. If you haven’t already, please RSVP that you are coming! I know it will be a wonderful day.

Being in the last few weeks of my term as State Representative, I have started to reflect on my term of office. I am so grateful for the memories I have made, for the people I have had the pleasure of meeting, and for the opportunity to represent the greatest youth organization on the planet. This organization has helped shape me into the person I am today; and for that, I could not be anymore thankful. I am looking forward to the future of our organization as we are improving with every step we take. Thank you for supporting the Organization of Triangles this term, and always.


Yours for a finer American womanhood,

Ally Callaghan

State Representative 2013-2014
