Bethel #21 of Janesville, was reinstituted on Sept. 18. After many months of working out logistics and finding girls who were interested in joining, the Bethel finally took it's first steps and initiated seven girls. These girls have so much support from the State and from other Masonic organizations. They have an amazing council to work with: Mom Sherri Arnold, Bethel Guardian; Dad JT Lichtfuss, Associate Bethel Guardian; Mom Anne DeWilde, Guardian Secretary; Dad Larry Preston, Guardian Treasurer; Mom Laura Slavik, Director of Epochs; and Mom Rosie Fiscus, Promoter of Sociability. Bethels from Burlington, Milwaukee, West Allis, Bristol and Racine came to help out with the initiation. The girls are excited to finally be members and we are excited for them. Continued support for these girls as they begin their journeys is essential. They have already started working on a calendar and have many ideas for events. We hope to see you at some of their future events!
