Clue #1 for 2017-18

Clue #1

Twinkle, twinkle, shining star,
How we wonder who and what you are.
On the west side of the state,
Marching, marching is so great,
In the Orchard by the sea,
That's the place you'll want to be!

See you April 27, 7:30 p.m.

New Grand Representative

Last night (April 6th) at Alderwood Chapter I had the honor of presenting the Grand Representative of Iowa in Washington to my husband Scott Wallinger.  I gave a numbered envelope to four of our Past Matron's to read.  In each envelope there was facts about Iowa.  I also gave Scott an envelope to read, but before the meeting he had gone to the eye doctor.  We were lucky when it was his turn to read what was in his envelope his eyes were back to normal.  He couldn't believe what he was reading so his comment was "And the Oscar goes to".  This was what was written, New Fact:  Scott Wallinger is the New Grand Representative to Iowa in Washington.

New Grand Representative

Tonight (March 29th) at Maple chapters installation I had the pleasure of presenting the grand representative commission to Maine to sister Donna Moody.  Congratulations to the newly installed Worthy Matron, Cyndi Branch and WP Rob Mallis.  
  Donna was totally shocked by her appointment.   Three other current representatives from Southwest were there to welcome her to the fold.    
It was great fun.
