Leadership Weekend, Traveling Around the State

A camping we will go!

To the members of the Organization of Triangles and its supporters:

I can officially say it’s summer! This is my favorite season, with all the sun and warm weather along with the great food, because we all know how much I enjoy my southern barbecue.

In March, I attended Royal Arch. I wore red, which is my favorite color, to show support of their colors. Royal Arch was an amazing experience and we had a little share in laughs when I was called up to speak as I just finished putting a whole fork full of salad in my mouth. It was a joy to see Mr. Roche, one of Triangle’s greatest supporters, go in as Most Excellent Grand High Priest. His mission this term is to have as many Royal Arch members attend as many Masonic Youth events as possible. I believe this is amazing of him to do and I encourage you all to invite Royal Arch members to your events.

Some things I have been up to since my last post were attending Grand Assembly in April, where we said goodbye to Danielle with her beautiful heart song and welcomed in the magic with Sam Miller. I can say I was excited since Sam and I have been friends for years and I’m excited for her as she embarks on this journey and be there to help and support her in any way I can.

Then as we sprung into May I attended Grand Lodge. This one is the big one in my opinion and I was very excited! Also, it was my first car ride with Mrs. Turri and I enjoyed the company. There I spread my message about my boots and my charity, but I also spoke about how even though I lost my Dad at a young age I have gained so many through my experience in Triangle. I wanted to let the members of Grand Lodge know how much they truly mean to us. I thank them for all their continued support and showing me the love a father does.

Along with summer comes another favorite activity of mine which is camping. Speaking of camping, that is the theme for our next District convention! This is on Long Island and is on June 4th, I’m hoping I will see you all there.

Speaking of Camping, I hope you all are getting excited for Leadership Weekend that is coming up (July 8th-July 10th)! I know the Junior Advisors have been hard at work planning this event and are excited to share what they have for you! I know I will be there with plenty of bug spray and ready for some fun in the woods! Oh, and I can’t forget my boots!

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe summer and enjoy the upcoming holidays of Memorial Day and 4th of July!

In Triangle love,

Alison Wright

Happy Holidays!!

To the members of the Organization of Triangles and its supporters:

I want to wish you all a Happy Holiday and hope you are as excited as I am for this wonderful Holiday season!

At my first stop with my boots, I had the pleasure of representing our wonderful organization to the members of Eastern Star at Grand Chapter. It was my first official visit as State Representative and I enjoyed my time there with all of the members. I knew many faces in the crowd which made me feel right at home!

Next, I attended Bal-On-Sen’s Installation on November 14th. Beloved Queen Halle Cerio stepped down after an amazing year in office and my sister, Mary-Margaret Wright, started her term. I was so happy I could attend this event at my home Triangle and get to see the last Wright sister enter this office. I wish all of the officers the best of luck through their terms!

Then I attended another beautiful Installation on November 22 at Onistagrawa Triangle. There we saw one of our own Jr. Advisors, Megan Williams, step down as Beloved Queen. She did an outstanding job as Beloved Queen and I look forward to what she will add to the Jr. Advisor Council. Giuliana with her Frozen theme started her term and I am very excited to see what her term has in store. I, like Olaf, also like warm hugs!  

Now I know everyone has got Christmas on the brain (myself included), but I wanted to remind you about De-Tri-Ra Winterfest 2016!! It is going to be Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend (Fri. Jan 15-Sun. Jan 17). This weekend is going to include sisters from Triangle and Rainbow as well as our brothers from DeMolay in fun activities. We will have ice breakers, snow tubing, board games and movies!! I hope you all plan on attending and I see you all there! Remember forms are due New Years Eve. If you don’t have one and need one contact your Jr. Deputies or download it from the Resource page of our site. 

I hope you all have a great Holiday Season and cherish the memories you make with your friends and family! I can’t wait for my boots and I to travel to our next official visit in March.  


In Triangle Love,

Happy Holidays!

To the members, Supervisors, and supporters of The Organization of Triangles,

I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of winter break and the Triangle holiday parties! So far in my term, I have not had the chance to promote our organization at any large functions since the holiday season is such a hectic time. However, I am looking forward to my first opportunity to represent our organization at the Royal Arch Banquet on March 6th.

The Organization of Triangles celebrated another year of sisterhood at the Onondaga- Oswego, and Capital districts Convention on October 12th. Ally Callaghan completed a wonderful year as State Representative and passed the crown over to me. The new Chairperson of the Junior council, Miss Alison Wright, our new Deputy State Director, Mrs. Turri, and our new State Treasurer, Mrs. Ferretti,were announced and installed as well.

Shortly after the District Convention, I traveled to Lockport Triangle for their Installation of Officers on November 1st. Beloved Queen Haley finished a successful year as Beloved Queen and handed the crown to Past Beloved Queen Sam for another term.

A week later, I attended Bal-On-Sen Triangle’s Installation of Officers on November 8th. This was especially important to me because Bal-On-Sen is my home Triangle. Newly installed Beloved Queen Halle made an eloquent speech and blew the crowd away. I am really looking forward to the future leaders of this organization.

I also attended the Installation of the Beloved Queen of Fides Triangle on December 6th . Ashlee, the winner of the State Director’s Award in October, was installed as Beloved Queen of her Triangle. Triangle girls from three different Triangles helped Fides install Ashlee. There were three generations of Triangle girls from Ashlee’s family present. It is wonderful to see the way Triangle has influenced many generations.

The next day, I attended the initiation held at Onistagrawa Triangle. They brought in a new member and then had a gift exchange and cookie exchange. The Triangle girls also made ornaments for the residents at the Masonic Care Community for the holidays. It is always nice to see our Triangle girls being compassionate for others in the holiday season.

Fidelity Triangle also had an initiation of their new member on December 13th. Yet again girls from other Triangles came to help and grow our smaller Triangles.

Since a year is coming to a close and a new year is about to begin, I am creating my New Year’s Resolution. This year my resolution is to be more compassionate and understanding to my friends and family. I also tend to be a bit of a procrastinator with school work and I am going to start doing my work long before it is due. My resolution for Triangle this year is to not only show other organizations how wonderful Triangle is, but also to show my support in every community where Triangles lives. I hope that by showing my support to each Triangle we can keep moving into the future.

If any Triangle girl is interested in having my job next year please apply to be the State Representative by January 30th. You must be a current or past Junior Advisor to apply. The application is under events-Convention 2015.

Have a Happy Holiday season and a great start to the new year.
In Triangle Love,

Annie Parks

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

Summer Travels from the State Representative

To the members of the Organization of Triangles,

I hope you are all enjoying your summer! Leadership Weekend was truly special and I cannot wait for the next one. From arts and crafts to Rededication in the rain, it was so memorable.

I have recently attended the Council of Deliberation’s dinner and spoke on behalf of the organization. I spoke about Leadership Weekend, as the NY Scottish Rite helps fund that weekend. The next day, I attended the OES Festival of Stars in Oriskany, NY. We sold snow cones, crafts, Masonic magnets, and more! It was a great day.

At the beginning of August, I attended NY DeMolay’s State Convention. It was great to spend the weekend with so many of my Triangle sisters and DeMolay brothers. We witnessed our very own Tory Sharon of Cassiopeia Triangle go out as State Sweetheart. Tory had a great year and we are all so proud of her! I’d also like to congratulate Tom Perry on a wonderful year as State Master Councilor! In addition to that, our very own Krista Wright of Bal-On-Sen Triangle was installed as State Sweetheart. I am so excited to see all that she accomplishes. I’d also like to wish good luck to Tyler Henderson, the new State Master Councilor. Congratulations, Krista and Tyler!

In other news, the Organization of Triangles has a new Instagram account! Do you have pictures you’d like us to share? Feel free to “direct message” the account with your submissions. Follow us @ootrianglesny to stay updated and see some great pictures!

I’d also like to remind everyone to continue sending articles for our e-newsletter to nytriangle@gmail.com. I would love to see at least two submissions from every Triangle by October! I can’t wait to see your submissions!

For the rest of August, I will be attending many more events to represent our organization and my Triangle sisters. I’m looking forward to the next two months of my term and I can’t wait to see you all in Liverpool on October 12th for the Capital & Onondaga-Oswego District Convention.

Yours for a finer American womanhood,

Ally Callaghan
