I had the pleasure of presenting the Grand Representative of Florida appointment last night (January 14th) at Tula Chapter #26 in Coupeville to Worthy Patron George Konopik.
Pat and I circled the chapter room with a bag of fruits and vegies asking various members what state they could be found in. The last fruit was an orange with the Florida Grand Representative pin stuck in it. George correctly identified Florida as the place where most oranges came from and was given the orange and pin and informed he was the new Grand Representative. Everyone present was thrilled for this well deserved member to receive this honor.
Oh, yes - Pat kept looking in the bag and saying, "Have we no bananas?" and I replied by singing, "Yes, we have no bananas." What fun!
Jim Iversen, Worthy Grand Patron
