The principal objects for which the organization is formed are fraternal, social and charitable. Fraternally, the Order endeavors to develop the moral character of its members through a belief in a Supreme Being and the teachings of the lessons of Truth, Faith, Wisdom and Charity. Each member is taught to care for the welfare of her and his fellow members. Click here for more information.
The Organization affords its members a social outlet. Provides an opportunity to meet together with people with similar interests and fulfill the basic human need for social companionship. Members enjoy planned social events with other members and their guests. For all courts and their members, civic and charitable projects are a main stay of each year's activities.
