2017 Alabama Grand Assembly

Greetings to all!

     It is that time of year again and we are starting to make plans for our 2017 "Leave A Legacy" Grand Session to be held at the Zamora Shrine in Irondale, Alabama from July 5-9, 2017. The following will provide you with information you need to register for the session and to reserve your hotel rooms for your stay in Birmingham. We are also offering the ordering a session t-shirt again this year. I hope you all have a wonderful time at this year's Grand Assembly!

     The Grand Assembly of Alabama abides by the Universal Dress Code of the Supreme Assembly. The attire for all sessions is formal, (Grand Officers will wear the official Grand Officer Dress and all others are asked to wear a formal, white for the Grand Cross of Color Investiture) except for practices and Fun Night, which is "A Night at the Park" theme. For Wednesday and Thursday practices and Ritual Competition, you may wear Khaki pants and you're a Rainbow shirt. For Fun Night, the Grand Worthy Advisor, Sister Julia McGee, would like for everyone to dress up as your favorite character, or how you dress for a picnic (long pants are okay, but no jeans). If you do not dress up, the attire is Rainbow Casual. We also ask that all of the Grand Officers be installed wearing a white formal.

     All luncheons and banquets are open to everyone. Recipients of the Grand Cross of Color will be required to show their Grand Cross of Color and Medallion. All Rainbow Girls and adults need to provide a copy of their current year's dues card and Medical Release Forms, with any medication and/or any medical issues clearly noted.
