THE DRUM CORPS
When Brother F. Lon Lowry was installed as the Right Worthy Grand Sentinel of the General Grand Chapter, “The Drum Corps” here in Ohio formed a partnership with Sister Glenda Winchester's “Band of Stars” in South Carolina. Sister Glenda and Brother Lon will serve General Grand Chapter together as the Most Worthy Grand Matron and Most Worthy Grand Patron beginning with their Installation on November 4, 2021, at the Triennial Session in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The purpose of both groups is to raise funds to help The Grand Chapter of Ohio and The Grand Chapter of South Carolina defray the expenses that will be incurred when the General Grand Chapter Triennial Session convenes in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, in the fall of 2024.
The Drum Corps will continue to sponsor events and the sale of unique items at Eastern Star gatherings through 2024. We thank our members profusely for their unwavering support in our endeavors.
