I am going through a box of plates I bought at an estate sale last weekend came across this plate.
Fifty Ninth Annual Supreme Session
Daughters of the Nile
June 1st, 1975
Here is a little history:
While there are plenty of activities for Shriners and their wives, there are two organizations tied to the Shrine that are for women only: The Ladies' Oriental Shrine and Daughters of the Nile. They both support the Shriners Hospitals and promote sociability, and membership in either organization is open to women 18 years of age and older who is related to a Shriner or Master Mason by birth, marriage or adoption. The Ladies Oriental Shrine of North America was founded in Wheeling, West Virginia in 1903, and Daughters of the Nile was founded in 1913 in Seattle, Washington.
