Tonight, Thursday, June 6, 2013, the commission to Ohio was presented to Willie Winstead of Lackamas Chapter in Washougal. Willie’s wife Eileen was recently announced as the incoming Grand Marshal so he was brought to the East to take the “escort test”. At the end I congratulated him on passing the test and for being our new Grand Representative of Ohio. Marcia Haukaas, Grand Treasurer VERMONT--
Third times a charm, that’s what they say,
And, by golly, it turned out that way!
On Thursday, June 6, I traveled to Alderwood Chapter in Everett where I had the distinct pleasure of presenting the commission of Grand Representative of Vermont to Sister Shirley King, Past Matron of Stanwood Chapter. Sister Shirley was stunned when I approached her, and I escorted her to the East to a standing ovation. Vermont’s Grand Chapter started on Thursday, and I told Shirley that if she and Brother Bob (her husband/escort) were quick enough, they could catch a midnight flight and be in Vermont in time for introductions today! Congratulations to Shirley!
This is to let you know that Jim Iversen, Grand Sentinel and I traveled to Ballard last evening (June 5th) to present the commission of Grand Representative of Oklahoma to Sister Arlene Strong of Occidental Chapter.
We played a game of "Name That State" with different folks, giving them token rewards when they guessed the clues correctly. Arlene's clue was "What state sounds like the large tree that grows from an acorn?" After a bit of coaching, she guessed Oklahoma and instead of an acorn, Jim presented her with the Oklahoma Grand Representative pin. She was very surprised and pleased.
There was a large representation of past and present Grand Representatives in attendance.
