EVENING STAR # 342 O.E.S. P.H.A. was organized in April of 1956 by the late Rev. Zack Townsand, Supervising Deputy and Grand Patron, and the late Sis Pauline Reese in the Masonic Temple located on 1100 Washington St.
The chapter was organized with 25 members. The first officers are listed as follows: the late Sis. Ruth Black, Worthy Matron; the late Rev. Bro. C.C. Black, Worthy Patron; the late Sis. Jewel Sullivan, Assoc. Matron; the late Mattie Guess, Secretary; and Jettie Freeman, Treasurer. Sis. Ruth Black served as Worthy Matron for five years.

Evening Star Chapter # 342 has been blessed through the years to offer participation in several charitable organizations such as: the former Waverly Hospital and Wilkerson Home, The Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation, The AIDS Foundation, The Donald Scout Fund (Deaf Olympics), The NAACP, The Urban League, and The American Diabetes Association just to name a few.

In the name of Evening Star # 342, we have offered assistance towards the relief for the victims of the Bethel Bishop Apartments. We offered care baskets to victims in both hurricanes, Hugo and Andrew, all while maintaining our personal obligation to education, through scholarship funds.
