With 40+ people in attendance, including 1 PGM & 1 PGP, 1 GO, 1 current Gr. Representative and 13 former Grand Representatives Occidental was the place to be last night. During Good of the Order AGC Gerry Mosler enlisted the help of 5 members for an impromptu game of Jeopardy. The questions had to do with state trivia. The first 4 contestants got the answer to their question wrong but the 5th contestant had the correct answer and was declared the winner. Kathi Akins came to the east to claim her prize, which was her commission as Grand Representative of New Mexico in Washington. She was thrilled and humbled at the honor. I was pleased to be able to give this commission as Kathi and I have been friends for many years, going back to our days as members of Occidental Assembly Rainbow for Girls. Kathi is already planning a trip to New Mexico in October for their Grand Chapter.
She did have one question though - the certificate said her commission was representing the state of Washington, however the letter from the WGM of New Mexico said she was representing New Mexico in Connecticut. So she is thinking she is going to have to move! I assured her that she doesn't have to leave the state!
All in all a great evening
