What happened at the last meeting: At our February meeting we had our Official Visitation by the WGM/WGP and Grand Marshal. We voted to nominate a member from Nashua #9 Rainbow Girls for the Eastern Star scholarship, Deb Bean was announced as the new Grand Rep to Delaware, we voted to support the NH Grand Assembly ad program, and four of our
members were recognized with Rob Morris jewels or additional bars: Jenny Taylor-Arnold, Tatiana Fowler, Shelley Gullett, and Larry Gullett. Our Officers did a phenomenal job with their ritual and floorwork and we welcomed one new affiliated member to our Chapter.

Spring is just around the corner and I hope that means many of our members will be able to attend our upcoming meetings and events.
