Reception - Gr. Organist Cherie Adams, Feb 20, 2010

(Unofficial count) Over 140 songbirds gathered at the Landmark on the Sound (formerly known as the Masonic Retirement Center) in Des Moines on Saturday, February 20th for the reception of Grand Organist Cherie Adams.

The members of both Southgate and Delta were very proud of their distinguished member.

The Grand Officers looked great in their official attire.

The WGM, WGP and Cherie's escort Myrna Nilson posed for official photographer Dan Voorhees.

Entertainment included Chuck Aldrich masquerading as a buffalo and startling all the women in the audience.

Stephanie Hoye portrayed the lonely dragonfly singing "Where is Love".

She thought she might have found it in the buffalo, but the situation proved to be too hairy!

So the mystery speaker, AGC Gerry Mosler brought down the house by proclaiming, "It isn't over until the fat lady sings," after which she picked up her guitar and put on her Ballardeers yellow hat and sang a song she wrote especially for Cherie.

It was a beautiful, sunny and fun afternoon filled with music and friendship.
