Starting a Pledge Group
is as easy as 1-2-3
- Vote to sponsor a Pledge Group and send the Sponsorship form to Mrs. Sara Lee Martin, Supreme Inspector for approval.
- Find that special lady to be your Pledge Mother.
- Find two girls between the ages of eight and eleven and you now have a Pledge Club!
It is that easy! When you have eight Pledges you are ready to institute your group. There is no time limit on how long you can be a Club. It can continue on for as long as it takes to have enough members to institute a Pledge Group.
The benefits of sponsoring a Pledge Group are many. Assembly members have younger sisters and neighborhood friends to share a Rainbow and Pledge experience with by participating in installations, fund raisers, membership drives and service projects. When these girls reach the age of 11, they are all ready to continue the community service and fun with Rainbow they were shown in Pledge. This is a great way to gain new members for the assembly.
The Pledge Directors have many tools to help you with starting and running your own pledge club or group. The Start-Up Kit has the necessary forms and information needed. Other available items are the Pledge Mother Instruction Book, a CD with forms including meeting agendas, installation, and institution scripts, medical forms, permission slips and petitions. The most important articles are the Memory Books. They include all of the memory work and the floor work that the young pledge girls and adults will need to perform Installation, Initiation, Regular meetings and other ceremonies.
If you are interested in starting a pledge group in your area please contact one of the Pledge Directors. Mrs. Carolyn Davis the State Pledge Director or Mrs. Vickie Garcia Assistant Pledge Director - South.
