The beautiful old handmade furniture inside of Waller Lodge hall was Donated by Holland Lodge #1 to the Waller Lodge in 1911 after half of the town of Waller burned in a disastrous fire. Of course the lodge building was included in the half that burned. Everything inside the building was lost.
The Eastern Star co-sponsored the Rainbow Girls with the Hempstead chapter, given to needy families at Thanksgiving and Christmas, made and gave decoration to 2 Waller and 1 Hempstead nursing homes. They also helped with the Volunteer Fire Department, blood drives, the Eastern Star Home and nursing homes in the area.

An Evening Prayer
If I have wounded any soul today
If I have caused one foot to go astray
If I have walked in my own Willful way
Dear Lord, Forgive
