GR HN - Amy Smith, Cyclamen (Utah), Oct 28, 2009

(Unofficial count) Almost 70 members and friends buzzed into Cyclamen Chapter to honor Amy Smith, Grand Representative of Utah (the beehive state) in Washington. 17 current and former Grand Representatives were present for the festivities.

The members of Cyclamen Chapter were very proud of their honored member - including Amy's son Mitchell. After opening, Nancy Jorgensen took over the WM duties from Amy and did an exemplary job of introductions and leading us all through fun facts about Utah.

Several members of the Hearts in Harmony Deputy group along with their WGM Ann Gates and WGP Brian Gross were on hand to help cheer Amy on.

Responses were given by Judy Turchin for the Deputies, Kathy Dewey - pro teming for Tess Kent who was home ill - for the Grand Reps, Marcia Haukaas - who presented Amy with her commission - for the elected and appointed Grand Officers, Ann Gates for the Past Grand Matrons and Brian Gross for the Past Grand Patrons.
After the meeting we were treated to delicious homemade chicken pot pie (made by the WP Ed Willert) with salad and biscuits and cake. Yummy! and Mahalo!
