On Tuesday, January 6, 2015, I had the pleasure of traveling to Maple Leaf Chapter in Bellingham to present a Grand Representative commission.
I stood up under announcements, and read several fun facts about the state whose commission was being given. My last line was “have you figured out what state you will be representing, Gary?” MICHIGAN!! I thought Gary would be surprised, BUT, the surprise was on me and everyone else in the chapter room. It turns out that Gary’s counterpart had notification that his commission would be effective January 1, 2015, and so she called him to congratulate him at 6:45 a.m. Saturday, January 3! As he was talking with his counterpart, he kept thinking “I’m not supposed to know this; I’m not supposed to know this.” Too funny!!!
Congratulations to Gary Pitcher, Maple Leaf Chapter, Bellingham, the new Grand Representative of Michigan!
