By Rosemarie K., Grand Nature & Representative to MT and ND
Being Grand Nature and Representative to Montana and North Dakota has been one of the greatest honors I’ve had during my time in Rainbow. As Grand Nature, I’ve been able to grow my appreciation for our natural world and share it with others. I’m so grateful that I’m able to impress on our new initiates at Grand Assembly the importance of spending time in nature and emphasizing the joy it can bring. As the Representative to Montana and North Dakota, I’ve been able to get to know Rainbow Girls and alumni from both jurisdictions and learn about the differences in the traditions of both our states. For example, in Montana, rather than granting wishes that are submitted by girls at Grand Assembly, they have a “wish wheel” that girls are able to spin if their name is drawn during a session. Once they spin the wheel, girls are able to win a dance break for everyone at sessions, a sweet treat, or a surprise. One difference I learned about California and North Dakota Rainbow is that girls are able to join Rainbow in North Dakota at 10 years old! This makes Rainbow open to so many more girls and makes their members more diverse in age. I’ve had so much fun filling this role this year and hope you’ve had fun learning more about my office! See you at Grand Assembly!
