Nashua Assembly #9

Nashua Assembly #9 initiated 58 members on February 8, 1936. Since then, over 1400 girls have become members and we have just celebrated 70 years of Rainbow in Nashua.

Nashua Assembly #9 continues to keep rolling along...busy as ever! We  successfully accomplished many goals this past Grand year: raising money, reading, and collecting books for Ashley Steele’s charity "Reach out and Read," as well as competing and winning awards in many Grand Assembly projects! This past term, the girls have dedicated their energy to bring in two new girls into Nashua #9 by Grand Assembly this year, and they hope to initiate many more by the end of the year!

Nashua Assembly #9 is the proud home to the following Past Grand Worthy Advisors: Marilyn Blanchard MacVane (1947), Judith Sudsbury Bausha (1960), Donna Easter Baker (1969), Laurie Bettencourt Kelly (1981), Stacy Jackson Desrosiers (1994) Bethany Maynard (2000), and Tracey Smith Thompson (2003), and Ashley Steele (2007).

We meet on the first and third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 7 pm at the Nashua Masonic Temple.

Nashua Assembly #9 has a very active Pledge Group, with 8 members.
They perform the Flag Tribute at Nashua Assembly at the first meeting of
each month, and display their talents by performing the Flag Ceremony at
Grand Assembly. We are very proud of our Pledges. They travel to the
Masonic Home to spend time with the residents there and host and work a Sunday breakfast every third Sunday at the Masonic Temple. They go on fun trips to amusement parks and pizza parlors, watch how to make and bake cookies at a local bakery, and watch demonstrations of karate at a
local Karate studio.
