2010 - Aug 2 - OV & 100th Anniversary of Floral Chapter

(Unofficial Count) 107 members gathered in Monroe to celebrate the official visit of WGM Linda Runyan and the Starlight Grand Family and also the 100th anniversary of Floral Chapter.
WM Valerie Hoffmeister and WP Bill Wade did a great job of leading their officers through the opening and introductions.
The Grand Officers were out in force to support the Chapter.

There was lots of entertainment, starting with that infamous bag lady who occasionally wanders into our Chapter rooms to make fun of us. 

She was definitely overdressed for the warmth of the Chapter room.

But she found her "Santa" in AP Bob Gates!

After she finally decided to head for greener pastures, we were treated to a fascinating history of the Chapter written by Lila Estes and presented by Inga Opitz. 

During her response, WGM Linda announced that Doris Jellinek had been named a Special Angel for Floral Chapter.  She and the other Chapter Special Angels will be honored at Grand Chapter next June.

After the meeting, we enjoyed delicious refreshments downstairs before heading home.  It was a lovely evening and everyone had a great time. 

The next OV will be at Montesano this coming Friday, August 6th at 7:30 pm.  Please come out and support the Chapters.   Let's fill up the room!
