For a century, they have come together to give back to the community. And on Sunday the Pitman Chapter #157 Order of the Eastern Star will celebrate its 100th birthday.
The reception, which is open to the public, is from 2:30 to 4 p.m. at the Elk-Pit Masonic Hall on Elk Horn Road.
Faye Adams, the current secretary of the local chapter, said the original by-laws book, which dates back to September 1911, will be on display during the reception. The book is signed by every member since the group's inception 100 years ago.
