2010 - Dec 4 - Reception for Grand Organist Pamela Lee

The hills were alive with the sound of music in Bremerton as members and friends gathered to celebrate Grand Organist Pamela Lee.  The Grand Officers all gave her items that related to family and her grandaughter since they are so important to her. 

Responses were given by PGP & GGCCM Brian Gross, PGM Sylvia Palmer substituting for PGM Marge Ramsdell, PGP Tom Schenewerk substituting for PGP Dennis Okicich (even putting on a fake white beard to add more realism to the response), and Grand Secretary Sandra Henry for the Grand Officers.

Delicious treats in the dining room topped off a wonderful afternoon.
