Lynne Chase Port Perry New home for Port Perry O.E.S. Dear Editor Due to the changing times and the fact that we were having difficulty increasing our membership Blue Ray Chapter 238 Order of Eastern Star here in Port Perry is closing our doors after 67 years of serving our community. As a beneficent organization our mission was to raise money to donate to deserving groups and individuals in our community and to support our own members in time of need. Many thanks to the community for their faithful participation in our fundraising events throughout the years i.e. luncheons draws for quilts 5050 draws bazaars yard sales and many more. Without your generous support we could not have fulfilled our mission. The Order of the Eastern Star in Ontario is celebrating its 100th Anniversary this year called Centennial Legacy. O.E.S. is the largest fraternal organization in the world to which both women and men can belong. The members of Blue Ray Chapter now have a new home with Sunderland Chapter 283 in Sunderland where they will make new friendships and create new stories.
