Tradition

Job's Daughters has a rich heritage and tradition. The group was founded in 1920 to provide an
opportunity for young women to work together, to learn about themselves and to help others. Job's
Daughters is open to girls ages 10 to 20 who have a Masonic Heritage. We do not follow any
specific

 religion, but do require that our members have a belief in God.                     .

For over 90 years, Job's Daughters has been actively promoting friendship and service. The
organization was founded by Mrs. Ethel T. Wead Mick in Omaha; Nebraska. The group takes its name
from the Book of Job, and in particular to a reference in the 42nd Chapter that says, "And in all the
land were no women found so fair as the Daughters of Job."

Meetings follow a long tradition of order. The Officers wear traditional Grecian robes, symbols of
democracy and equality, provided by the Bethel. Other members wear dresses to meetings. Meetings
are held twice a month. Programs are planned and conducted by the members with the help of adult
volunteers.

To become a Job's Daughter does not involve an embarrassing ritual or test of courage. Initiations are
solemn, meaningful ceremonies presented by Bethel Officers. Parents are welcome at initiations and all
of the meetings.

To be a member of Job's Daughters is to be part of a group that promotes friendship among young
women and confidence in themselves. As a member you will learn skills that will help you throuqhout
your life. You will become part of an organization that serves the community. Most importantly, you
will have fun.
