Grand Chaplain Reception - Oct 17, 2009

(Unofficial count) Over 140 people gathered at the Corbin Senior Center to enjoy the reception of Grand Chaplain John Chamberlain. God must be listening to John's prayers, because the weather cooperated with warmth and partly sunny skies.
The Grand Officers and their escorts gathered to help John celebrate.
John's family also arrived to enjoy his special day.
Six Past Grand Chaplains enjoyed the afternoon's festivities.

John gave us some history of Masonry and Eastern Star and reminded us to be courteous to one another and remember that our order is made up of people of many faiths and we should honor their traditions too.

John received some nice gifts, but we all think his favorite was his life membership for Magnolia Chapter given to him by his wife Vicki.

Lilynne Davis both played the piano and sang 3 songs including "The Impossible Dream". Her voice is beautiful and the entertainment was first rate.

Responses were given by WGM Marge, WGP Dennis, GGCCM & PGM June Lee, PGM Joy Lough, PGP Herb Miller and Grand Marshal Peggy Mills.

The Evergreen Grand Family (for which Vicki was Grand Marshal) and the Maplette Deputy Instructors prepared and served the luncheon and the refreshments afterwards.

It was a wonderful afternoon and John and Vicki did a great job of organizing it. (Especially Vicki!)
