What happened at the last meeting: We had our official visitation by the WGM and WGP and received accolades on our books, our ritual, floorwork, and activities of the chapter. We voted to purchase an advertisement in the Grand Assembly Program Book and a Tee Sponsorship for the Mini Golf Tournament. We honored our Grand Officers and Representatives. Sister Peggy announced that earlier this month Sister Doreen Going was presented with a Grand Representative appointment to Ontario in NH. Four of our members received their travel award at the evening festivities.

From the East:
Thank you to all that assisted and joined us for our OV last meeting. We are so proud of each of the officers for a job well done and appreciate all the support we had on the sidelines. BIG welcome to Tammy who joined last meeting and again welcome to Margaret who joined in January. New Year – New Members! Let’s not stop in bring in more to our Chapter.
Let us rejoice in the welcoming of Spring even if it is having a bit of a struggle starting out. Spring cleaning will be happening everywhere including at Anne Marie House so this month’s collection will be cleaning supplies such as disinfecting wipes/sprays, HE laundry pods, trash bags, dish soap and sponges, and multipurpose cleaners with bleach. Please drop by the temple or let me know if you have a donation to make and I’ll come to get them. Winter hibernation is done – let’s get out and stretch our legs with visiting and social enjoyment of our Sisters and Brothers.
As always, so that none shall be forgotten, please contact the Worthy Matron or Secretary as to any sad or glad tidings
