IOSL Juvenile Department Mission
The Juvenile Division of the Independent Order of St. Luke was founded in 1895. A distinguished committee gathered at the Norfolk Convention that year to draft " laws, rules and regulations". In 1896, Mrs. Walker was nominated Grand Deputy Matron, a title she carried for life. She viewed the Juvenile Division as critical to the success of the Independent Order of St. Luke and social change.
