This is an exciting time in our Rainbow history!

After Grand Assembly 2015, we decided to take two years off and focus on leadership skills, membership and ritual work. Because of this, we do not have a Grand Worthy Advisor, Grand Officers, a Grand theme, nor will we be holding a Grand Assembly in 2016.  

Change is hard; the unknown can be a bit scary.  We are facing some challenges where there's no tradition, rule or Statute to guide us.  But while forging these new paths,we are going to be positive, patient and creative. After 53 years, maybe it is time to reassess how we are managing this great program to give the best product and support to our girls. Rainbow gets girls ready for life, but each girl will do different things with her life.  Rainbow isn't a school where assignments are handed out.  Rainbow is a series of choices each girl can make.  She can stretch outside her comfort zone, learn something new about herself or do nothing but follow and enjoy.  As long as we stay true to the core values of Rainbow, those 10 things from Proficiency, then everything else can be thoughtfully updated, modernized or tossed out the window. We are here to give each girl an opportunity, the rest is up to her.

Instead of traditional Grand Assembly Sessions, the Leadership Team of PGWAs Janelle, Sorcha and Kari will be spearheading January workshops and summer camps. Everything is still under development, but in January 2016, we are excited to have 2 PGWAs from WA/ID, certified by the Girls Leadership Institute, as our guest leaders for the girls.  We hope to have "continuing education" training for the adults.  More details will follow.

In all this change and transition, we do still have Grand/Fraternal Representatives and mascot.  Our mascot is extremely intelligent and is considered a guide, honored for its wisdom and symbolizes longevity. It is adaptable and clever, determined and powerfully focused. Our mascot will focus our energy and help us find intelligent solutions for our longevity...we are the foxes!

Hope always awaits you.  On the sunlit hilltops above the valley of doubt, and we have a lot of doubt about our future right now.  In the corner of your heart, when it seems easier to quit.  In your conversations, when evil words creep in because there is frustration, Hope is always there.  

Honor our Past, Respond to our Present and Plan for our Future.



First GWA's Motto from Mrs. Elisen's scrapbook




Each assembly has their own fox mascot to use in photos, etc.
