On Saturday (March 21st) at Tyler Chapter's installation I had the privilege of announcing brother Ken Estess as the new Grand Representative of Maine in Washington. After the installation of officers under announcements I asked for help from Irene Jacobs Grand Secretary and Melanie Boss Grand Ruth. I had a presentation board with a map of the United States and we narrowed down our search for the jurisdiction by following clues like East of the Mississippi and somewhere along the Appalchain trail. While doing that I placed letters on the board to spell out Maine. After we had figured out the jurisdiction I asked Melanie to find our new Grand Representative, several people stood up hoping it would be them but at last Melanie escorted Ken to the east. Both Ken and his wife Ann were very surprised and the chapter and all in attendance were happy.
Thank you Maryann for allowing me to present this commission to a very deserving member. Peggy Mills Grand Conductress
RE: The WA OES calendar We know there is a problem and believe me, we are working to find a solution. For some reason, none of Mary Ellen's posts are showing up anymore. I have reposted all the dates I have and hope you can see them. Please let me know if you can. If there are missing dates, let me know what they are and I will get them reposted. In the meantime, please remember we are not paid to do this. We do it out of love for the order and Mary Ellen Sparks has done a phenomenal job in keeping it accurate and up to date. This is a technical issue beyond our control or knowledge. Bear with us while we try to find a solution. Thanks & Hugs! Stephanie
