Bloomington Order of the Eastern Star Chapter #307 meets in the library of Creekside Community Center (Map) on the 2nd Wednesdays of the month, except July and August when we are on break. We also meet on the 4th Wednesdays in Sept., Oct., Mar., Apr. and May.
Bloomington Chapter is perhaps best known for its Spring Style Show Luncheon, our largest annual event, started in April of 1967. The style show features a buffet lunch with everyone’s favorite German potato salad followed by a traditional “style show” where live models wear some of the latest fashions provided by local retailers which you can purchase after the show.
Our chapter remains active in the community through its many fundraising activities and volunteer hours with the Bloomington Masonic Home and Minnesota Job’s Daughters. In recent years we have done a walk-a-thon and sold Bratwursts at the Cub Foods Brat Stand in Bloomington. Most of our charitable giving goes toward cancer treatment & research, scholarships, food shelves, women’s shelters and the Grand Chapter projects that vary from year to year.
Our chapter was founded in November of 1955 and granted it’s charter by the Minnesota Grand Chapter in June of 1956 with 88 signing members.
