Black Diamond Court Won the Contest for the MOP/SFO project for the 2013 year. 

A few of the things that Black Diamond Court No. 165 has done this year to get the Name Amaranth out into their Community.

  1. Black Diamond organized the first fund raiser for the GRM which was the bus trip to Feather Falls Casino which we made $1,504.00 for the Amaranth Diabetes Foundation. 
  2. Black Diamond Court participated at the International Hoe Down North with 20 members attending the event and donated the substantial amount of food for lunch and also donated the Lumpia proceeds sold during the event.
  3. We also participated in the Step out Walk for Diabetes.
  4. Black Diamond Court renders aid and assists our neighboring sister Courts during their meetings and special events: i.e. Beehive-Sacramento & Loyalty Courts.
  5. Black Diamond Court initiated the donation drive for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines which generated a total of $3,332.75.
  6. Black Diamond Court is now considered as regular volunteers for the Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce. 

This is just a sample of this Courts dedication to our Order and their willingness to get the name Order of the Amaranth out there for people to know.

Thank you Black Diamond Court, you're great!

A Brief History of the Order of The Amaranth


Amaranth Fights Diabetes


Queen Christina was just six years old when she became ruler of Sweden some three hundred years ago. During her reign as Queen, she created the Order of the Amarantha for the ladies and knights of her royal court. Queen Christina herself played the character, Lady Amarantha, who was portrayed as being a beautiful, virtuous and talented Lady of the Court. The name of the Order was possibly chosen from the beautiful never-fading red Amaranthus flowers growing in profusion in Spain and Portugal. The Order was perpetuated and presently exists in the Royal Court of Sweden. Originally, the Royal and Social Order of the Amarantha had no connection with Masonry as it does today.

Thanks to the dedicated support of our members worldwide we have raised over $7.5 million in the fight against diabetes.
