Cyclamen Chapter will conduct the Eastern Star Memorial at the Auburn Masonic Temple on October 9th at 7:00 pm with a reception to follow the service. Ella Jo and husband Bob were very active in the Chapter and Nile. Bob and Ella Jo really loved being involved in Hatasu #1 Daughters of the Nile. Many conversations expressed their joy of participating with dear friends working for the Shrine Hospital because of the need of the children. In the Auburn community Ella Jo devoted many hours of fun and work along with several members of Cyclamen who will truly miss her. Please join us and bid farewell with our members and her family.

New Grand Representative of Arizona

On Fri., Sept. 12th, I visited Crystal Chapter and handed out envelopes to 4 members.  Under Good of the Order, I announced that the WGM had sent me to give the members a geography lesson.  I spoke about the fact that we have had such a hot summer and that Arizona was getting all our wet weather.  I then asked the 4 members to read from their envelopes an interesting fact about Arizona.  After member #4--Bill Davis--- read the fact about spring training for baseball being in Arizona, I announced that "I hoped Bill enjoyed visiting spring training as the new Grand Representative of Arizona".  Bill was in the East as Worthy Patron protem and after looking shocked for a few moments, he got a giant grin on his face.  This was a real honor and joy for me to present this commission.
