Sunshine Girls

The Sunshine Girls have been in existence since 1930 and is a junior order of the Pythian Sisters. The purpose of the Sunshine Girls is to lay a foundation of purity, service and usefulness in all things that help to make the lives of those around us happier and the world a better place to live in.


    Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, to all the people you can.
    — Sunshine Girls Motto

      Our goals:

      • To teach each girl that God is the very essence of our existence.
      • To teach that respect for their parents.
      • To love our Country.
      • To practice Friendship, Charity, Hope and to ever have Faith in all of God's children, seeing the good and trying to forget all that is unkind in people.

      Our motto is "Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, to all the people you can." There are currently Sunshine Girl Councils in New Mexico, California, Ohio, Virginia and a newly instituted one in Texas. There has been an expressed interest in Kentucky, Michigan and another location in Virginia.

      It takes 15 girls from the ages of 8-20 to start a Pythian Sunshine Girls Council. Many of these girls go on to join Pythian Sister Temples in their area when they reach the age of 16. We are proud of the fact that there are several past and present Supreme Temple Officers who got their start in the Pythian Order as Pythian Sunshine Girls.

      The Pythian Sunshine Girls does make a difference in the lives of the girls, as well as those who work with them - it is a very rewarding experience.
