We had a wonderful picnic at Pat and Al Slater’s farm in July. Al was the chief griller. There was lots of good food and we all had fun playing Bingo after dinner. Even the weather cooperated and all who attended had a good time.

We hope everyone had a wonderful summer and are refreshed and ready to return to our fall meetings. It will be great to see everyone again.

A card was sent to congratulate Jamey and Ashley Groetz on the birth of their new baby girl, Julia Rose. She was also welcomed into this world by her brother and two sisters, Jay, Justine and Jessica on May 23rd, 2014.

Congratulations were also sent to Marc Shefelton on his graduation from seminary which was sponsored by Delta Chapter through ESTARL.

Sympathy cards were sent to Paul Feaser on the death of his father; also to the family’s of Janet Hill and Gladys Tripplett, due to the death of her husband.

Get well cards were sent to Carolyn Herrick who is recuperating from a back injury and also to Larry Kerns (Past Grand Matron’s husband who served with Trevor Sproul;) who had surgery; also to Dawn Thomas for her surgery; to Heather Norris who has been ill; and also to Diane Phillips who was in the hospital.

If you have not already done so, please see that Pat Slatzer receives your 2014-15 dues. They are $35.00 and must be paid by October 1, 2014.

There are only three meetings left in our term and they will all be “short form” openings. We saved them until the end so it would be easier to have all our memorization work done by June.

Johnnie and I are looking forward to seeing all of you again at our September Stated Meeting.

Mina Jane Groetz, W. M.
