Khalif Court #90 is under the Leadership of Illustrious Commandress Daughter Evelyn Pitchford.
Khalif Court No. 90 was organized under dispensation in March, 1946, and received its Charter on August 25, 1946. The Court became a member of the Imperial Court Daughters, Auxiliary of the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine of North and South America and its Jusridications, Incorporated, and has remained a member for the past 72 years. At that time, the Lodge Hall was located at the corner of East Market Street and Percy Street.
Members instrumental in organizing and setting up the Court were Irene Huntley, Rose Jenkins, Goldie Hargett, Betty Lou Green, Pearl McAden and Julia Lee. Also, Noble Zack Alexander and the Imperial Commandress assisted with the organization of the Court which was successfully organized with 30 members.
Since the Court’s inception, we have continued to promote and accept new ideas from all members for the betterment of the organization. Our continued goals are to abide by the “Constitution and By-laws” set forth by the Imperial Court; to be instrumental in establishing and suggesting new methods to increase growth in our membership, and maintaining the status of uprightness among the members; to promote love, honesty and truth toward each other within our churches and communities, and a Court consisting of fun, fellowship, love and togetherness.
The Court has made various contributions and donations, inclusive of but not limited to local scholarship programs (Bennett College for Women and NC A&T SU), Sickle Cell Foundation, YMCA, Salvation Army, Nursing homes, flood victims, NAACP and others. Through the years Khalif Court No. 90 has grown in membership as well as expanded its activities. This has allowed the Court to increase in areas of diversity, yet remain united. The founding Daughters have provided inspiration through the years reminding us that “through our diversities, combine with unity, strength is provided when applied correctly.” This allows for new and creative ideas which have been an asset to the Court.
May God Bless this Esteemed Organization that We Serve.
