The society was organized
in the year 1900 for the purpose of cheering the sick and aged in Phoenix
by visiting and carrying fruit and flowers to them; also for relieving
the poor in numerous ways, and for sending flowers to the hospitals. They
bear the royal colors of purple and white; their motto: “ In His Name”.
