Ceremony Honoring Veteran Members
Will all Rebekahs who have been members for 25 years please stand? Thank you. You may be seated. This is for you.
It is well that we have formed the custom of commemorating days that hold deep significance in our Order. Such occasions are shrines along the wayside where we can pause in solemn quiet for a brief space and look within ourselves and take note of what we are giving to Odd Fellowship, and to see if service is paramount in our daily lives.
Tonight we honor our veteran members. (Names are called and they are escorted to a seat in the garden of veteran members.)
To a Rebekah, the Veteran's Jewel is the most cherished of all Jewels. The lives of our veteran members call to mind the symbols on the Jewel which they wear. (A display board is set up and painted cardboard models of the parts of the jewel are placed and connected on it while the following is read.)
- The Clasp on the Jewel is symbolic of the safety which we always feel when we know our veteran members are with us.
- The Bar we see on the Jewel reminds us of the strength of character which symbolized your life. Your life has been blessed with friends and unselfish service, and the Pink andGreen on your Jewel remind us that steadfast friendship and eternal love have been your guide to life through the years.
- The letters on the Jewel - V R D - remind us that you are truly a Veteran of the Rebekah Degree. Fidelity such as yours to that degree lends woman her sweetest charm.
- Your fraternal life is represented by the Links on this Jewel: Friendship, Love and Truth. These links have been your guide to life.
- You have taught us the meaning of the Enamel which surrounds this Jewel. It stands for your devotion to the principles of Odd Fellowship and your clear shining example of the life of a true Rebekah.
- The Olive wreath brings to our minds the thought of peace and harmony, and your fraternal life has brought that peace and harmony into our lodge.
- The Numerals on the Jewel remind us of your years of service. You have given lovingly of that service in words, music and thoughtful deeds of kindness. You have seen this lodge safely through these years, and to you, our veteran members, we owe a debt of gratitude.
There before us is a replica of the Veteran's Jewel. In ___________ Rebekah Lodge #___, we present this jewel to those who have continuous membership in the Order for at least 50 years. The owner of a Veteran's Jewel is very proud to wear it because it stands for more than just years of service. If it could talk, its message would be: The wearer of this Jewel came into the Order tolearn Odd Fellowship; stayed in the Order to teach Odd Fellowship, and went out into the world tolive Odd Fellowship. (Other lodges may present jewels earlier, and jewels may be purchased for any member who has at least 15 years of continuous membership.)
