                       OPEN ENROLLMENT FOR THE ORDER OF THE EASTERN STAR

At the request of the Grand Worthy Matron and the Grand Worthy Patron of the Prince Hall Grand Chapter, Order
of the Eastern Star, Jurisdiction of Arizona (PHA), Most Worshipful Grand Master, the Honorable Lewis R. Brent,
authorizes a modification to the Constitution and Bylaws of the Prince Hall Grand Chapter to include membership
eligibility for ladies WITHOUT affiliation.

From August 1, 2009, through December 31, 2009, the eligibility for membership in the Order of the Eastern Star is
extended to include those ladies “adopted” by a Master Mason, with membership in a Lodge chartered by the Most
Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge, Jurisdiction of Arizona, Inc. All requests for membership under this Proclamation
MUST comply with the following requirements:

        Petitioner must meet all requirements for membership as prescribed in Articles XXXIII through XXXVII of
         the Constitution and Bylaws of the Prince Hall Grand Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star (PHA) except as
         amended by this Proclamation.

        Petition must be accompanied by all required fees and must be in the hands of the Chapter Secretary not
         later than the last day of the adoption period.

        The Degree of the Order of the Eastern Star must be conferred within 60 days from the ending date of the
         Open Enrollment Period.

        Ladies who are the daughter, mother, wife or sister of a Master Mason are NOT eligible for membership
         under this Proclamation, unless the Master Mason is deceased AND was not in good financial standing at
         the time of his death.

This proclamation is given under my hand and the seal of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge F. & A. M.,
Arizona and Jurisdiction, Inc. this 29th day of July, AD 6009 AL. Take due and timely notice and govern yourselves
accordingly.

Fraternally,                                            ATTEST:
