 Welcome to the Website of the Grand Court of Florida, Order of the Amaranth. The Order of the Amaranth is a social, fraternal and charitable organization that is open to women and men who have a Masonic affiliation. Our main philanthropic project is the Amaranth Diabetes Foundation, which supports research for the purpose of finding a cure for diabetes.

The Amaranth provides its members the opportunity to meet together with others who hold similar interests and enjoy social companionship. Each Court in the state holds planned social events throughout the year that members and their guests attend. We also have multi-state functions that allow members to make new friends and renew old friendships while enjoying a meeting or fun night.

 We appreciate your interest in our order and hope that you will find this site both helpful and interesting.  H.L. Cathy Edson, Grand Royal Matron and S.K. Patrick Wilberding, Grand Royal Patron are excited and have lots of fun activities and plans for the upcoming year.  Please take the opportunity to navigate through the links on this website and see what events and projects they have planned for the 2015-2016 year in this wonderful state of Florida.

They have also chosen to support a project for the residents of the Masonic Home and also work to raise funds to award scholarships to our Masonic Youth.  We are striving to support both those that are the backbone of our Masonic orders and to also support our future members in our Masonic Youth.

Come join us as we travel our "Shamrock" trail and for our "Garden of Irish Blessing" session, May 19-21, 2016 at the Holiday Inn Westshore-Airport in Tampa, Florida. 

"May you get all your wishes but one

 so you always have something to strive for!"
