Thursday evening, January 7, 2016, I had the distinct please of presenting the Grand Representative of New Mexico commission to a VERY surprised Cathy Cook from Analia Chapter.
I walked through the chapter room stating "odd laws" from New Mexico and asking the members if they could name the state with those clues. The last clue I gave was the state airplane: hot air balloons! And that gave away New Mexico. I was at the Associate Matron's station by this time, and so just turned around and grabbed Cathy's hand and announced her. Cathy received a standing ovation on our way to the East where I presented with her paperwork and beautiful pin.
Cathy was truly stunned and all the members are so pleased for Cathy. Congratulations Cathy!
Jean Ballard, Grand Conductress
