This has been a long time coming. The Grand Chapter Office received the information for this commission at the same time the recipient was moving from Sequim to Montesano. It took a while to track down the person but this afternoon I had the pleasure of visiting Elisabeth Haubrick at her new home and presenting to her the commission to the Grand Chapter of Saskatchewan. She was delighted to have the official word. Her counterpart wrote her long before we received the information in the State’s.

If anyone down in that area will be attending Grand Chapter and could give a ride to Elisabeth she would love to go to Grand Chapter as her counterpart will be attending our Grand Chapter. Also, if you need a roommate let her know as I don’t believe she has made any arrangements. Phone: 360-249-2133 Email: hbhaubrick@yahoo.com

Congratulations can be sent to:

Elisabeth Haubrick

Box 36 Old Beacon Road

Montesano WA 98563

Angel hugs,

Pamela Lee, Grand Organist
