From the East:
Greetings! We extend our sincerest thanks to all the members of Pilgrim Chapter for electing us to be your Worthy Matron and Worthy Patron this year. The faith and trust you have placed in us is humbling and we will endeavor each day by our actions to be worthy of the honor you have bestowed upon us. Through many bumps and sudden changes, we finally had our installation, and it was all we dreamed it could be. We are looking forward to a fun and prosperous year together and are ready to get started by ending 2021 off right- through a celebration of all Pilgrim is to us. We are celebrating 100 Years of Pilgrim Chapter and have exciting plans all year long, so we look forward to seeing all of you at our meetings and other special events. Please join us at our very first meeting in the East in October, our Men’s Night in November, and our December Holiday Celebration honoring that which our Chapter embodies every day-family. Wishing you all a warm and cozy holiday season.
In Star Love,
Tatiana E Fowler, WM  John W Jackson, PGP, WP
