It was an evening fit for a queen Jan. 12 as the newly elected Job’s Daughters for Bethel No. 48 were installed in a royal ceremony.

Amanda Kingston named Honoured Queen of Job’s Daughters International at White Rock’s Masonic Hall, taking over for Immediate Past Honoured Queen Diane Peatman.

Jessica Maughan was elected as Senior Princess, Shae-Lynn Bilodeau was named Junior Princess, Berlyn Seselja was installed as Guide and Sheryl Thomas as Marshal.

Installations occur twice a year and place the members into new positions. Girls are first elected to the Marshal position, then Guide, Juinor Princess, Senior Princess and finally, Honoured Queen – a 2½-year process

The Honoured Queen’s reign will last for six months until the next installation.

Following the ceremony, the girls attended a masquerade ball and a reception decorated with Kingston’s term colours: purple, blue and green.

For those interested in Job’s Daughters, membership is open to girls 10-20 with a masonic relationship.

For more information, call Peggy Dowling, 604-220-6518.
