Members of Electa Chapter No. 5 Order of the Eastern Stars recently took gift bags to residents at Davis East Life Center.

This is the third year that Electa No. 5 has worked with activity directors at Davis East to make sure all residents have a gift during the Christmas party.

“Many of the residents seemed surprised and happy as their names were called to receive a gift,” a spokeswoman said.

The gift bags contained a variety of items, including blanket throws, sweat socks, suits, gloves, hats, toiletries and Christmas decorations. During the party, the OES members talked with the residents and helped serve refreshments.

“Everyone seemed to have a merry time and participated in a group sing-along of ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’,” the spokeswoman said.

Electa No. 5 is a non-profit organization, subordinate to the Royal Grand Chapter Order of the Eastern Star of the Prince Hall Masonic Family, Arkansas Jurisdiction.

“The lessons of the Order of the Eastern Star are scriptural, the teachings are moral, and the purposes are beneficial,” she said.
