Friday evening, August 3rd, was an exceptionally warm and fraternally convivial evening during the Official Visit of the Worthy Grand Matron at Centralia & Chehalis Chapters. As the current Grand Representatives were presented and introduced, and before they were returned to their place in the Chapter, I interrupted the Worthy Matron and asked if we might add to this august group. After a few comparisons of the similarities of flora and fauna and fruit crops between our two states, I had the privilege of presenting a West Virginia Grand Representative commission to a very stunned and most pleasantly surprised Bro. Vern Young of Centralia Chapter.
