The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls was established in McAlester, Oklahoma in 1922. The very inception and writing of the first Ritual, and the laws governing the Order, was the work of W. Mark Sexson, a 33 degree Mason from McAlester, Oklahoma.
The degrees of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls were first exemplified on April 6, 1922, by the regular officers of South McAlester Chapter No. 149, Order of the Eastern Star, for a class of 171 girls at the Scottish Rite Temple in McAlester, Oklahoma.
Rainbow Girls around the world honor our Founder by attending religious services on the Sunday nearest April 6th and our Assembly follows the service with lunch together with our Advisory Board and Parents to celebrate Rainbow.
