Last night (April 6th) at Alderwood Chapter I had the honor of presenting the Grand Representative of Iowa in Washington to my husband Scott Wallinger. I gave a numbered envelope to four of our Past Matron's to read. In each envelope there was facts about Iowa. I also gave Scott an envelope to read, but before the meeting he had gone to the eye doctor. We were lucky when it was his turn to read what was in his envelope his eyes were back to normal. He couldn't believe what he was reading so his comment was "And the Oscar goes to". This was what was written, New Fact: Scott Wallinger is the New Grand Representative to Iowa in Washington.
