Pilgrim Chapter #55, OES, as we kicked off our full year celebration of our 100th Anniversary. At our last meeting, which was held on Zoom, on December 17th, 2020, we commemorated the beginning of our Chapter with a reaffirmation of the promise and pledge we took when we joined. Thank you to all who prepared for, and participated in, this evening. Without each and every one of you, we would not have the Chapter we have today!

Update on 100th Activities! Our 100th Committee has been hard at work these past 2 years planning several activities, and though COVID 19 threw a monkey wrench into some plans they are still working hard to bring many of the plans to fruition.
