Starting a Pledge Group
is as easy as 1-2-3
- The Assembly votes to sponsor a Pledge Group and then sends the Sponsorship form to Mrs. Dana Reiger, Supreme Deputy, 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 Rainbow experiences with by participating in installations, fund raisers, membership drives and service projects. When these girls reach the age of 11, they are ready to continue community service and fun with Rainbow. This is a great way to build an Assembly's membership.
The Pledge Directors have many tools to help you with starting and running your own pledge club or group. Some of these tools include the Pledge Instruction Book, electronic versions of forms and meeting resources including meeting agendas, installation, and initiation scripts, medical forms, permission slips and applications. The most important resource is the Book of Memory (Pink Book). This includes 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 once the Group is instituted.
If your Assembly is interested in starting a pledge club in your area please contact one of the Pledge Directors. Ms. Carolyn Davis the State Pledge Director or Mrs. Vickie Garcia Assistant Pledge Director - South.
