Members of the Tennessee Order of the Eastern Star Tate Springs Chapter recently continued efforts to keep Tennessee green with students from West View Middle School.
The Tate Springs Chapter, located in Bean Station, has an ongoing project to recycle used greeting cards by repurposing them.
For several years the cards were donated to ALPS and, according to the Tate Springs Chapter, the collection was so successful that the center has an abundant supply. West View was chosen in 2012 to receive the cards, which will be used in the art department for projects. The Order of the Eastern Star is an international fraternal organization to which both men and women can belong, with chapters in the United States, Canada and 13 other countries.
Members of the order are men who are Master Masons and women with specific Masonic relationships.
