DI Honor Night reports - Joanne Hash & Janie Larson

On Saturday, September 26th, eleven Dresden Stars and Eastside Chairman Nancy Peterson gathered at Welcome Chapter in Shelton to honor Sister Joanne Hash, along with numerous members from the chapters she instructs: Welcome, Port Orchard, and Belfair. The theme of “Sweet Land of Liberty” was beautifully carried out with red, white, and blue d├ęcor, and the meeting was officiated by Worthy Matron Cathy Foseide and Worthy Patron Robert Shaw.

Not only did Sister Joanne wear a ‘stars and stripes’ sequined vest, she sported US flag ‘antennae’ in her hair! A fun time was had by all!

October 6th marked Deputy Instructor Honor Night #2, this time east of the mountains in Cle Elum. Members from Alpha, Grace, Sunnyside, and Syringa Chapters gathered to honor their Deputy Instructor, Sister Janie Larson, along with five Dresden Stars, the East and Westside Chairmen, and a large contingent of Past Grand Officers and Escorts from the Heritage Grand Family.

The evening’s entertainment was glorious Celtic music sung by local student Whitney Robinson – what an amazing voice! Worthy Matron Jeanine Baunsgard and WP Ken Larson were awesome hosts for this evening of Celtic fun. PGM Joanne Clark and PGP Terry Wiggins responded on behalf of the Past Grand Matrons and Patrons, while Dresden Star Pam Lee responded on behalf of the Deputy Instructors.

The Dresden Stars helped out by pro-temming three of the starpoint stations, and when the other two were vacated just before closing by the refreshment chairmen, all five stations were filled by Deputy Instructors in their sparkling teal dresses. What a pretty sight!
