In the San Luis Valley of Colorado lies many memories for my family, none so precious and so dear as those of their Masonic affiliations. During their childhood years, the Shriver children were very active with Rainbow and DeMolay. My mother and her sisters were all part of the Monte Vista Assembly, because of dedication, devotion, and love of their parents. Henry and Dorothy Shriver served many a term as Rainbow Dad, Mother Advisor, and Board members. Grandma Dorothy, Granddad, this is for you, your love of Rainbow and all that it taught your girls and granddaughters.
Grandma Dorothy and Granddad could not be present with us this evening, so I would ask all grandparents to please stand. If you are a grandparent, please stand and remain standing until a girl has brought to you a token of my appreciation. Thank you all very much, you may all be seated. Thank you for attending this Grand Session. Due to your dedication to this organization and your desire to see all of us grow in a very special way, we are here before you to present the degrees of our Order. Thank you for supporting each and every one of us.
From this beautiful valley of Colorado came two precious women who would meet later in life throughout their love of Rainbow. In Alaska they met, only to find that they grew up only thirty miles away from each other. Here in our beautiful state, they have brought their devotion for our organization, and I would like to thank them the best way I know how: I dedicate the 1994 Grand Session of the Grand Assembly of Alaska to Mrs. Dee Benner and Mrs. Deanna Morris. Thank you for your love and devotion that you have shared with each of us.
