Grand Court of Colorado

Order of the Amaranth


A MESSAGE FROM HL BRANDI  - Grand Royal Matron

  • Dear Honored Ladies and Sir Knights,
  • Welcome September!
  • May this month bring you satisfaction, peace, and joy!
  • May all the desires of your heart be granted. May this be the beginning of new things in your life.
  • Stay Strong, Be Positive and Fulfill your Dreams.
  • To all the Grandparents I wish you all a happy and blessed Grandparents Day!
  • A Grandparent’s love is strong & deep, filled with memories to cherish & keep. I have always thought that Grandparents are there to assist grandkids in creating mischief that they haven’t thought of yet.
  •  September 11, 2001, changed more than the skyline of New York City, the attacks that took place that day changed a generation of Americans, our Military, First Responders, and our world. I feel that day's destruction and devastation did not condemn this country to a future filled with fear.
  • No, this loss, as profound as it was, did not break the soul of this nation.
  • It made us stronger. That day fortified Americans with pride and patriotism and created a spirit of service in the hearts for a new generation. That day fundamentally changed our nation for the better. We now observe Patriot Day annually on September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance for the thousands of lives lost in the 9/11 attacks.

“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”

A MESSAGE FROM SK JIM – Grand Royal Patron

     First, thank you to everyone who had anything to do with or participated in the 5th Annual 5K Diabetes Walk.  We had a beautiful day for the Walk at E.B. Raines Park held on Saturday, August 21, 2021.  A good time was had by all those who attended, and some money was even raised to fight Diabetes.

     Here it is September already!  Where did our Summer go?  I hope you all had a nice restful Summer and that you are ready to get back into the groove and on the road again.    We have two Official Visits of the Grand Royal Matron this month.  On Friday, September 24, 2021, our first Official will be at Edgewater followed by Friendship on Tuesday, September 28, 2021.  Please attend and support HL Drina and HL Sherry, two of our first time Royal Matrons.

Monday, September 6, 2021, is Labor Day.   In 1894 Congress passed a bill recognizing the first Monday of September as Labor Day and making it an official federal holiday.  But it was only a holiday for federal workers.  Labor Day is to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contribution of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States.    Labor Day is called the "unofficial end of summer" and is celebrated by a variety of activities including picnics, and sales by retailers.  Labor Day is also considered the last day when it is acceptable to wear white.

     Grand Royal Matron, HL Brandi and I will be responding at Colorado Grand Chapter, Order of Eastern Star on Thursday, September 23, 2021 at 7:00 pm located at the Radison Hotel, 3155 South Vaughn Way (by Heather Gardens).  It would be wonderful to see as many Amaranth members there as possible.  Please wear your Grand Court attire.  Grand Chapter Installation will be on Saturday, September 25, 2021 and again it would be nice to have a good Amaranth showing.  We used to do this in the past.

     Mark your calendars, I will be installing Deputy Supreme Royal Matrons and Deputy Supreme Royal Patrons on Thursday, October 14, 2021 at Liberty Court's meeting.  This will be the ONLY installation.  I have the list from Supreme Royal Patron, SK George Kuhns so if you can't remember if you accepted the appointment give me a call at

720-300-9061 and I can check the list.

     I am looking forward to seeing you all on the Yellow Brick Road as we continue our journey to the Emerald City in the Land of Oz and we continue to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Colorado Grand Court.










“May your Christmas sparkle and your New Year shine”
