(Unofficial count) 70 members gathered in Walla Walla to celebrate the official visit of WGM Marge with WGP Dennis at Alki and Waitsburg Chapters.
The members of the 2 Chapters came out to welcome all the visitors and to help each other pro-tem - including PGM Blanche Herron Chambers who pro-temed Associate Matron and did a fine job for someone who will turn 99 next month.
WM Diana Osborne and WP Kent Osborne of Alki lead their officers in the opening and welcomed all the visitors with sayings about smiles! Then WM Barbara Danforth and WP Bob Danforth took over and did a wonderful job of leading us through the examination of a visitor.
The WGM of Oregon send some of her honey bees to the OV to encourage all of their OES friends to travel. They entertained us with a cute song, then rewarded us for listening with Bit-O-Honey candy bars! Thanks Honey Bees!
WGM Marge and WGP Dennis earned their antenna and afterward posed with all the Worthy Matrons present.
Prior to the meeting we enjoyed a delicious dinner and afterwards there were cookies and drinks to refresh us before heading home.
