First Aid Chairman needed for 2013 Grand Chapter Session

I am looking for a qualified person, or persons, who might be interested in being First Aid Chairman for the 2013 Grand Chapter Session. I know there are members who have nursing skills but I don’t know who you are, so please contact me if this is something you would like to do. Remember you don’t have to do it all yourself, you can ask others to assist you, because we all know that “many hands make light work”.

Pat and I traveled through a snowstorm to Ferndale Chapter Monday evening (March 5th) and had the pleasure of awarding the appointment of Grand Representative of South Carolina to Jacelyn King, who is listed as Secretary in the Blue Book.
We had fun doing a little skit that involved crowning several princesses, a prince, a queen, and then the "King". A special badge of honor was awarded to "King Jacelyn" - her Grand Representative pin.
All members present where delighted that Jacelyn was chosen for this honor.
Hugs and Star love~
