Garnet Rebekah Lodge no. 30 fonds

  • PR-003
  • Fonds
  • 1949-2008

This fonds consists of records pertaining to membership in the Rebekah Lodge. The records belonged primarily to Edna M. Mitchell, though other names can be seen inscribed in some of the records. The records were accumulated principally during her membership at Garnet Rebekah Lodge no. 30, though some earlier materials appear to originate from a period when she was part of Mizpah Rebekah Lodge no. 5.

The records are mainly booklets that members used regularly at assemblies. This includes ceremony orders and proceedings (e.g. re-dedication ceremony), cypher text, a questions and answers booklet, constitution and by-laws, charge book and a collection of articles by Myrtle Russell, president of the International Association of Rebekah Assemblies. There is also one photograph in the fonds depicting Edna M. Mitchell and fellow members at Garnet Lodge.

There are also 2 printed event programmes from Mount Saint Vincent Academy that were donated by Rachel.
